Linking to phones, e-mails, and maps

Mobile browser have a distinct usability advantage. If we want to link to an e-mail address, the native e-mail client will instantly pop up.

we can do the same thing with phone numbers and every device will instantly pop up an option to call that number

Maps are another speciality for mobile, since virtually all smart phones have built-in GPS software. For iOS 5 and Android, the OS will intercept click on link and bring up the location in the native maps app. For platforms other than iOS and Android, the user will be taken to the Google Maps site. This is good because Google has done amazing job of making the site usable on any device, including non-smart phones.

Google static maps

We can inject a static map from Google.

Adding Google Analytics

Every website should have analytics. If not, it's difficult to say how many people are hitting your site, if we're getting people trough our conversion funnels, or what pages are causing people to leave our site.

By using an asynchronous call to pull in Google Analytics, we are allowing the user to proceed, even if tracking is non-functional or taking a while to load. Typically, a call to a JavaScript file will pause all further asset loading and JavaScript execution until the requested script has been fully loaded and executed. We really don't want to have our otherwise well-crafted, speedy, and functioning page held up because some ad network or analytics tracking is taking a while to respond.

Long and multi-page forms

On desktops, long forms are pretty normal. We've all seen registration pages and e-commerce ordering processes. The longer the form is, the greater the tendency to try to break them up into smaller, more logical pieces.

Integrating jQuery Validate

It's always been important to the user experience to validate as much as possible on the client. HTML5 goes a long way to this end by giving far greater control over input types. As good as HTML5 input types are, we'll need more. The Validate plugin is a staple in the jQuery community.

QR Codes

The data shows that knowledge and usage of QR codes is very high according to surveys. More than two-thirds of smartphone users have scanned a code

Big-time successful traffic. A banner ad is considered successful if only two percent of people click through.

QR codes get more than 66 percent! I'd say it's a pretty good way to get people to our creations and, thus, should be of concern. But QR codes are for more than just URLs. Here we have a URL, a block of text, a phone number, and an SMS.

Linking and embedding video

Previews are a staple in the movie industry. We could simply link directly to the previews on YouTube as many do or we can keep the user on our own site, and directly embed the html5 video.

HTML5 Web Storage

Storing JSON directly to a key in Web Storage by using the JSON.stringify method.

HTML5 Audio

Just like in the video, QR Codes, Geolocation, Google Maps API, and HTML5 Video, the audio tags can support multiple sources and the browser will simply choose the first one it knows how to deal with. Older browsers won't have a clue what to do and will simply parse this like XML, which means that the only thing that will show up is the text, "Your browser is so old that you can't hear the music.

Saving to the home screen with HTML5 manifest

With great power comes great responsibility. This is a power feature. If you properly leverage the HTML5 manifest and a few other meta tags, your application will become a full-screen, chrome-less app.

Resizing elements

A popular use of growing and shrinking elements is the Fisheye menu, where elements grow when the mouse pointer hovers over them, and shrink back down when the pointer moves off them. This effect is also used by the icons on the dock in Apple's OSX.

Custom Animations

We have many custom animations from different types of galleries, exploding elements....
