Whether designing an app or working on your website’s mobile design, there are a few key elements every successful mobile design must have. In fact, these highly critical components are so important that without them, you won’t be able to design what your client really needs. And today, more and more users interact with content via their mobile devices, many times more often than a desktop device, so make doubly sure that your mobile design makes sense, is usable, and looks stellar!

- Know your goals
- Know your end-users
- Test, test, test
- Usability considerations
- OS specific design

And I do provide more than a few handy resource links so that you can explore each aspect in more details.
