Back Pocket Apps


Most apps fight for our attention, but how can an app be useful when you leave your phone in your pocket? In this inspiring talk, Golden Krishna (author of "The Best Interface Is No Interface" and designer at Google) proposes the concept of "back pocket apps" - uses of your phone that are best when you don't need to interact with your phone at all. Mobile devices hold more potential that to be yet another screen for reading Facebook posts on - they should augment our lives in clever and useful ways. Golden looks at these interface-free user experiences, how to design them, and how to create delightful experiences without direct engagement.
