Learning objectives


  • The student must gain knowledge about the development of mobile applications, and experience with the use of tools in the development of a specific mobile application for a specific case. One possible tool could be Xcode and iOS SDK, for developing iOS based applications


  • establish and configure a tool for mobile application
  • development use the tool to develop a concrete prototype application
  • use the tool for implementing advanced mobile interaction design with e.g. Multi-Touch and accelerometer support
  • use advanced options in the tool's SDK
  • use the tool for testing and debugging program code
  • use the tool for iterative assessment of interaction design
  • apply the tool's human interface guidelines
  • transfer and run the application on a mobile device


After completing the course module, the student must be able to develop a specific mobile application at prototype level, including

  • identify and exploit relevant technical possibilities in a mobile SDK in connection with a specific case
  • develop, test and debug program code
  • develop a mobile interaction design
