D-Macs: Building Multi-Device User Interfaces by Demonstrating, Sharing and Replaying Design Actions

By Jan Meskens, Kris Luyten and Karin Coninx


Multi-device user interface design mostly implies creating a suitable interface for each targeted device, using a diverse set of design tools and toolkits. This is a time consuming activity, concerning a lot of repetitive design actions without support for reusing this effort in later designs. In this paper, we propose D-Macs: a design tool that allows designers to record their design actions across devices, to share these actions with other designers and to replay their own design actions and those of others. D-Macs lowers the burden in multi-device user interface design and can reduce the necessity for manually repeating design actions. ACM Classification: H5.2 [Information interfaces and presentation]
