Steven Hoober

Mobile UX design consultant, author, strategist

A couple years ago I wrote the book (for O'Reilly) on mobile design patterns, and am now best known for my ongoing research into how people really hold and touch their phones, phablets and tablets.

I have been doing mobile and multi-channel design since 1999, designing the first Google mobile search, the first mobile app store (for Sprint), mobile browsers including parts of the Samsung one you might be using right now, websites for The Weather Channel and Lowe's home improvement, and apps for companies like Hallmark, US Bank and Cummins diesel.

I speak regularly, and write regular columns for UXmatters, and periodically for UX Magazine and others. I am also in talks to write another book.

I think we're nothing if not a community, that shares our findings, best practices and processes. Almost all of my published information, including the entire contents of the book, are freely available on my website and wiki.
