Discover an enjoyable User Experience beyond the GUI

“It is not just about being useful, but it needs to be usable and ultimately enjoyable.” That was the slide that was up on the screen as I walked into the DT3804 session - How to build great Mobile Apps by Traci Terterian and Oded Klimer at HP Discover. Terterian was talking about building great mobile apps, based on a design that is centered around the new Nucleus of IT—the user. In the true spirit of having fun in the Race to the New Style of IT, the Mobile App must be an enjoyable experience for the user—an app  the user should want to use rather than have to use. Therein lies the fundamentals of “an enjoyable user experience,” much more than the basic functional value the Graphical User Interface (GUI) used to deliver. Useful doesn’t cut it anymore.
