Global User Experience Research: Mobile

A shout out to the usableapps.oracle.com blog article Going Native to Understand Mobile Workers. Oracle is a global company and with all that revenue coming from outside the US, international usability research is essential.

So, read up about how the Applications User Experience team went about this important user-centered ethnographic research. Personalization is king in the mobile space. Going native is a great way to uncover exactly what users want as they work and use their mobile devices, but you need to do it worldwide!

Augmented Reality and Translation: Use Case in Enterprise?

Really love this iPhone app from Visual Quest: Word Lens. Great to see the concept of augmented reality ("a hot topic in UX") and translation coming together. Of course, I've downloaded the app and I'm trying it out already!

Mashable says it all about this app in terms of how it seems like Sci-Fi is coming to life. However, the question remains: How could such an app be used in the enterprise applications space?

Opinions welcome!
