Additionally, the book is a delight to read, clever, clear and practical.

Also addressed are the many new not typical interfaces entering the fray as well: Smart devices, such as watches, thermostats, etc. that we will also need to consider.

This book is a must-read for entrepreneurs, UX designers, interaction designers, app developers and product managers.

great book!

This book is really important to read. It is is really easy to read with tone of examples and allot of interesting facts.
I think it is a "must read" for all entrepreneurs. As an entrepreneur you have to know that your UX is one of the most important aspects of your product.
This book gave me a whole new perspective on my startup’s UX design. and according to the author tips we are now making a few significant changes to our design.
I learned allot from reading it and find my self more then once going back to read a specific section again to refresh my memory.
I would really recommend this book for everyone in the design / UX / product / entrepreneurship fields. I know we did - all of our designer and product guys have read it.

It's here at last! The go-to guide for academics, practitioners, and start-ups facing an emerging challenge: designing multi-device experiences.

Michal applies her substantial domain expertise to helping designers and others bridge the chasm between legacy design approaches and the principles needed for designing in the increasing complex ecosystem of wearables, mobile, and smart devices. Her applicable methodology enables an approach product teams can use today, as well as a framework entrepreneurs can use to tackle the design challenges of tomorrow. In addition to that, the digestible chapters and ample real-life illustrations make for an enjoyable, highly recallable read! This book is destined to become a staple for those in user experience design.

I usually gear up to read books for work knowing that they will rightfully take a lot of concentration and time. When they're theoretical, this is even more so the case. Michal Levin manages to clearly present a thoughtful design theory, intertwine it with practical real-world examples and then inspire you to act on this information. I was able to sit and her read book all day without getting tired or having to take breaks to digest the information. Even better, in the midst of reading her book I was able to make progress on two of my own projects and discovered a new tool to enhance the way I do my job! This is not just a must-read, it's a must-own. I'll be referring to my copy time and again.

(For what it's worth, no one has ever made me want to read theoretical anything, let alone gotten me to enjoy it, so if you're on the fence, let this endorsement count!)

Format: Paperback
With the advent of mobile platforms including the smart phone and tablet, as well as digital television and the Internet of Things, there is a new need for developing user experiences which are consistent yet take advantages of a devices unique capabilities and limitations (such as screen size). Michal Levin is a Senior User Experience Designer at Google and is intimately familiar with the goals and issues of multiple device experiences. These devices with their differing capabilities sometimes must be optimized for their individual use such as accessing an app on a smart phone, with reference to its small screen, GPS capabilities and Accelerometer. At other times devices are used simultaneously, as in using the tablet as a TV buddy for accessing additional content, or in a sequence of steps to accomplish a single goal, like using a Fitbit band with a smartphone activity log app.

These multi-device interfaces must establish a new sort of user experience meeting the goals of attention-limited users with high expectations. Ms. Levin describes this environment and the multi-system ecosystem, giving emphasis to three design characteristics: 1. Consistency, 2.Continuity, and 3. Complementarity.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who must design or implement multi-device systems, and will consult it in my exploration of Open Health Information Systems Supporting the Internet of Things..

Format: Paperback
This is a must-read for anyone wanting to develop applications. Not only does the author do a great job of explaining why it's essential to make your applications available across multiple devices, she inspires the developers to consider how the application will be used and the capabilities of the device for which it is being designed, and using this knowledge to realize that it's not within best practice to offer every aspect of every application on every device.

This is a great book to reference often when designing and implementing applications that will (and should) run across multiple devices.
