Best Collection of Mobile User Interface Patterns

by on 05/10/11 at 11:30 am

There are many user interface pattern libraries for desktop. But user interface pattern libraries for mobile have taken over. After sifting through many, I’ve collected the best of them. These pattern libraries will show you how to design common interface components. There’s such a variety that you’re bound to find an approach that suits your application. Use these resources to inspire you with ideas for mobile that you never had before.

    I have a new book coming out with O’Reilly Media, Mobile Design Pattern Gallery: UI Patterns for iOS, Android and more. It has more than 400 screenshots from iOS, Android, BlackBerry, webOS, Windows and Symbian applications. Check out the site, blog, and Flickr photostream and win a copy of the book.

    Sorry I missed this by a bit, but I noticed while doing my periodic google.

    Aside from having a whole book of patterns, shared freely at the wiki, one page is a collection of every other mobile pattern library I can find, even the ones I hate.

    I found that most of these sites focus only on phones…

    I’m not sure if tablets fall under the ‘mobile’ category, but I find that patterns for tablet devices are often very different than smartphones.

    If you’re looking for tablet-specific patterns I’dd suggest adding to that list.

    These are great resources either way, thanks for putting it together!
