33 Mobile Interface Innovations

From Customizable Smartphone Concepts to E-Commerce Keyboard Tools

— December 21, 2016 — Tech
These mobile interface innovations range from customizable smartphone concepts to e-commerce keyboard tools. In addition to a number of budget phones that run on alternative operating systems -- Plasma Mobile's interface is customizable and Linux-based while Jolla's features a Sailfish operating system -- other standouts include apps that enhance communication and creativity.

Other examples of notable mobile interfaces include cancer-detecting smartphone sensors and even light installations that will change their shape and brightness according to specific smartphone commands.

Additional standouts like digital honeycomb keyboards and mobile-connected touchscreen tables are changing the way smartphone users communicate or present ideas within an academic or corporate settings, while interactive tablet toys let kids experience a fusion of physical and virtual play.
