Mobile vs Desktop Traffic

"There’s a plethora of devices
out there with widely differing
abilities – it’s never been more
confusing or challenging to
create brilliant interfaces that
work across them all.” ~ Jeffery
Zeldman
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
How All Devices Differ
Screen Size
Functionality
Usability

What About
Mobile Apps?
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
SharePoint Mobile Apps
Freely Available:
Third Party:
SharePoint Newsfeed App
SharePlus by Infragistics's
Skydrive Pro App
Briefcase by Colligo
Mobile Entrée by H3 Solutions
Filamente Mobile SharePoint App
And more…
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Apps and RWD serve different purposes
Apps -> particular function
Mobile Collaboration
Mobile Document Sharing / Offline Viewing
RWD -> general site / portal
Mobile Friendly Website

Planning For
Responsive Design
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Our Responsive Goals
 Single site (i.e. no separate mobile)
 Serve a variety of Viewports
 And tailored to each viewport
 Future Friendly
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Responsive Drawbacks
 Desktop vs. Mobile content
 Content order
 Maybe SharePoint can help?
 Device Channels
 A lot more work
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Start with Content
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Mobile First
Information Architecture
Content Rollups
Search Driven Content
Content is King
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com

Extremes

Navigation
 Responsive Navigation the most difficult decision
 SharePoint Navigation is not Responsive friendly
 SharePoint relies on hover event / unfriendly HTML
 Static Navigation vs. SharePoint Navigation
 note: Custom Responsive Navigation will require JS/jQuery
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com

Frameworks
 Pre-Built Responsive and Fluid Grids
 Saves time and resources
 Many include extras
 i.e. Collapsing navigation
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Framework Drawbacks
 May take time to learn framework
 Not always SharePoint friendly
 But
Might

a bunch
way “you”
of time
would do it

Mobile First
 Build Mobile interface first
 Forces us to concentrate on content
 Helps control some resources
 Mobile Interface not great for entering content
 May not be preferable with some development processes
 Not IE7/IE8 friendly
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Mobile First In Action
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Mobile First and IE8 / IE7
 Will only load mobile view
 Fix with CSS Media Queries
 JS Library: http://pxml.ly/zcw2jb2
 So we need to use JS?
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<script src="http://css3-mediaqueries-js.googlecode.com/files/css3-mediaqueries.js"></script>
<![endif]-->
 Or an IE8- stylesheet
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css“ href=“/styles/styles-ie8.css” />
<![endif]-->
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Build to the Design
not the Device
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Become Device Independent
 Base breakpoints based on design
 Allows for any device
 Use a background image to help
 Temporary background image with columns
 Start with 300 pixel block
 Then 50 to 100 pixel columns through 1200 pixels total
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
SharePoint 2013 Helps
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Device Channels
 New to SharePoint 2013
 Interfaces tailored and maps to specific device(s)
 Custom Master Pages per Channel
 Custom DeviceChannelPanels
 Change the order of content!
@EricOverfield - pixelmill.com
Device Channels – An Example

Eric’s Practical Tips to #SPRWD
 Start with a framework (Responsive SharePoint?)
 Mobile first (most likely)
 Set your project expectations accordingly
 Test your design on primary devices/browsers
 Be sure you are very comfortable with CSS/HTML
 Don’t stop learning

There is no silver bullet
Build towards progress
Perfection does not yet exist
