Abstract

Designing Web-applications is considerably different for handhelds than for desktop computers. Screen size is limited, browsers further limit the visible content area and users interact differently. Detecting handheld-browsers on the server side and delivering pages optimized for a small client form factor is inevitable. The authors discuss their experiences during the design and development of an application for medical research which was designed for both handhelds and desktops. It is important to include mobile computing design considerations into “User Interfaces for All” [1], [2].
