“Mobile Design Book is beautifully crafted and really dives deep into what makes mobile apps great. Design is important and this book explains why.”

Ryan Lum



"Every single word and example you’ll find in this book was carefully chosen and is the perfect guide on your path of becoming a better designer. Mobile Design Book by Paula and Tomas is one of those books that should be in every designer’s bookshelf"

Pascal Gärtner



"Mobile Design Book is a welcomed resource in a designer's library where we don't have much (yet!) beyond collections of screenshots."

Susan Lin



"Designing for mobile devices is an art form. You can't learn art from text books. But you can learn a lot from keenly observing what other artist do. That's exactly what this book is all about. I highly recommend it for anybody who's new to mobile user experience design or anybody wanting to keep up to date."

Kush Amersinghe



"This book is great for beginning designers to learn how to objectively criticize a design and a good reminder for experienced designers that also popular apps aren’t perfect"
