Web designers know that their industry tends to change very quickly. Continuous adaptation and development of skills are necessary in order to always stay up to date. Over the past few years, mobile web usage has increased to a point where web designers can no longer afford to ignore it. As a result, web designers have a growing need to be educated in this area and to be ready to design websites that accommodate their audience. Consequently, our brand new Smashing eBook is dedicated to “Mobile Design for iPhone and iPad”.
This e-book presents articles on professional mobile design for the iPhone as well as the iPad, including studies of trends in mobile design and guidelines for the development of mobile web pages. These articles are mostly a selection of the best from Smashing Magazine in 2009 and 2010, dealing with mobile design for the iPhone and iPad, plus an exclusive 90-page study about mobile web design trends. They have been carefully edited and are available as a PDF, ePub and Mobipocket.

Advantages With Smashing eBooks
Now, why should readers buy a Smashing eBook? Good question. Although so much content is available online for free, an eBook feels a bit more permanent, secure and reliable and is often much better optimized for reading than webpages are. In fact, eBooks present many more benefits and advantages compared to the web, including:
You can carry all your books with you, in notebooks, smartphones or e-book readers, without worrying about their weight. Also, being compact, they are much more convenient for reading offline or on mobile smart phones. All Smashing eBooks are available as a PDF, ePub and Mobipocket.
- Search Functionality
With built-in search functionality you can easily search for keywords or even text passages in your books.
- Bookmarks, Highlights and Notes
Advanced e-book readers will automatically remember where you stopped reading each time you close your digital book. They also allow you to bookmark specific pages, highlight your favorite text passages and make notes.
- Built-in Dictionaries
Advanced e-book readers provide built-in dictionaries. For example, if you read an English book but you are not a native-speaker, built-in dictionaries can help you to understand the content in your e-book quicker.
- Text to Speech
Latest e-book readers provide built-in text-to-speech functionality that can be useful, especially for mobile devices with small screens. Also, you can allow your eyes to rest after a long day in front of your computer.
- No Advertising
Compared to articles published on Smashing Magazine, our Smashing eBooks do not contain any advertising.
- No DRM Protection
The Smashing eBooks are not protected by DRM. That makes it easy for you to read the e-books on any e-book reader. Please respect our work and the hard efforts of our writers. If you received a Smashing eBook from a source other than the Smashing Shop, please support us by purchasing your copy in our online shop. Thank you.
