User experience analysis design thinking transformation from Web to mobile applications


[editor’s note] [author] @ Liu Jin legene, with the rapid development of mobile Internet, many Web product managers and designers turned to mobile applications. Jobs that seem very relevant may yet cause them much trouble.
