Porting the application design from Android to Series 40 is not that difficult as it might look at first. Series 40 phones are cost-optimized phones, yet with smartphone alike experience. The webinar addresses basic UI design aspects when porting a design from Android Jelly Bean to Series 40 full touch. (However, you should compare the UI design from Android devices with small screens (e.g. 3.2 phones) to Series 40 phones.) This is the companion wiki page.

It includes:

  • Webinar exercises (will turn into "Recommended solutions problems raised by the webinar exercises" after the second webinar session)
  • Q/A from the webinar sessions
  • Link to slide deck [will be added].
  • Link to recording [will be added]

Note.pngNote: The information is related to Android OS 4.1 "Jelly Bean and Series 40 full touch.

Webinar problems

This section contains problems raised in the webinar exercises. The recommended solutions will be added after the second session.

  1. How would you change the following structure for S40FT? S40FT Webinar Android 01.png
  2. How do Android Jelly Bean and Series 40 full touch differ from selecting multiple?

  4. Are there any limitations in using buttons in S40FT?
  5. What are the benefits of S40FT backstep paradigm?
