Mobile first design vs. desktop first design : A comparison of a prototype and a website from a usability perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete har haft till syfte att åskådliggöra eventuella skillnader och/eller likheter i den upplevda användbarheten vid användandet av en webbplats skapad via mobile first design och desktop first design. Målsättningen med examensarbetet har varit att ta fram en hifi-prototyp, skapad utifrån mobile first design, som visualiserade ett designförslag för flygfotoföretaget HimlaFotos startsida. Jämförelsen har utgått ifrån en egendefinierad version av begreppet användbarhet baserad på ISO:s definition, där användbarhet består av tre faktorer; kraftfullhet, effektivitet och tillfredställelse. För att samla in data om den upplevda användbarheten har användartester genomförts. Flera likheter har identifierats gällande användbarhetsmåtten kraftfullhet och effektivitet, medan skillnader har funnits vid måttet för tillfredställelse. Bland nyckelfynden fanns att innehållsprioriteringen, som är en viktig del av mobile first design, kan vara ett användbart verktyg vid skapandet av tekniska artefakter till mobila enheter. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to explore if there is any similarities and/or differences in usability characteristics of a website created with mobile first design versus desktop first design. A design suggestion of the aerial photo company HimlaFoto’s homepage, visualized by a hifi-prototype using mobile first design, has been the goal of the study. Based on ISO:s definition of usability, a  definition by the author has been used in the study where usability consists of three factors; efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction. To gather data about the usability when using both the hifi-prototyp and HimlaFotos default website, usability testing has taken place. For efficiency and effectiveness several similarities has been found, while some differences was identified with the usability factor satisfaction. Among the key findings was that the content prioritization, a key principle of mobile first design, could be a useful tool when developing technical artefacts for mobile devices.
