Format: Paperback
Two things stick out when you get your hands on this book. The first is that it's not so thick (280 pages). The second thing when you open the book and flip through the pages is that you see a lot of full color screenshots (a big plus) but little accompanying text (a big minus for me). You can literally read this book in a couple of hours. I think it would be more interesting if the UI pattern choices were larded with a little background and conclusions from human interaction- and user experience studies. Now it's just a big (but not up-to-date or exhaustive) collection of screenshots of how apps have solved certain mobile challenges which I might grab now and then for some inspiration.

The title claims that the book contains "UI patterns for iOS, Android and More", but the majority is iOS. I'm and Android developer and the Android examples in this book are taken from ancient Android versions. Android (and iOS) have evolved a lot and have much nicer UI patterns / solutions for certain problems you can find in this this book. If you seek Android UI/UX advise you are much better of keeping an eye on the Android Design website where information is updated, rewritten and added frequently. Although it's probably a good thing to elaborate on how patterns are used in current apps around the globe 'current' is bound to be outdated fast in a print book. So use this book and the screenshots in it as a view of how things are done in the 'past' and you can maybe find a use for it. It does contain a wealth of pattern names in the appendix, which is great to create a common vocabulary between designers and developers.

For $44.99 I wouldn't recommend this book to others. A price of $29.99 is more suitable and would maybe add an extra star. It is a good book for beginning mobile designers and developers. More seasoned pro's probably have their own on-line and more up-to-date resources on this topic and probably have their own view and opinion of what is good mobile design.

Format: Paperback
The main goal for every (not only mobile) application is to be usable. One of the usability related elements is user interface design. It should be predictable, helping users to do their tasks, easy and quick to learn and use. This book contains a lot of mobile app example screens decorated with reasonable UX designer textual comments. They may be very useful while creating a new mobile application or improving existing one. The book's content is very inspiring. Lot's of examples help to learn how to create good and avoid bad designs (Chapter 10. Anti-Patters is a good example here). A very valuable and time saving book.

Format: Paperback
There is not a book that teaches tricks or codes. You can 'instead learn a lot about how to create an app or a site for smartphone or tablet. Many things we know or imagine, but putting all togheter e as the author has done is another thing. Book gives advice to those who definitely looks out for the first time in mobile web design but still be kept in the library for the most experts. Dozens of examples accompanied by excellent color images from which to get ideas for future web sites.

This book reviews lots of mobile apps for design inspiration, it show different types of interfaces, cases in which different designs are better applied and things to watch out for a better experience in your app. As a beginner developer i found it pretty good.
