Designing (and converting) for multiple mobile densities With Apple leading the movement, phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop displays are rapidly increasing in resolution. This is wonderful for everyday mobile users, as the quality of their device screens become sharper and allow them to better experience the finer details of an application. But this creates an interesting challenge — designing for multiple mobile densities. Understanding densities The sharpness of your phone or tablet’s display is referred to as density. iOS devices measure density in PPI (pixels per inch) and Android in DPI (dots per inch). As mobile hardware evolves, so does the quality of screens. View full size As illustrated above, there are five widely used densities across iOS and Android devices, which fall into four progressively larger groups: - non-retina (iOS) and mdpi (Android)- hdpi (Android)- retina (iOS)- xhdpi (Android) The lower densities will grow old over the next few years, eventually removing themselves from mobile design and build requirements.
[Case Study] Beyond engagement : the social metrics you ignore Beyond Engagement: The Social Media Metrics You Ignore [Webinar Recording] Kevin Shively Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured Yesterday, we hosted a brand new webinar Beyond Engagement: The Social Media Metrics You Ignore.

Below are both the recording and the slide deck from the webinar. If you attended the webinar, you’re aware that a technical issue caused a delay after the first couple slides.
