Adobe’s Web Platform team recently showcased a prototype demonstrating the future of digital layout on the web using content provided to us by National Geographic. Although the experience is fully responsive (meaning it adapts to screens of all sizes), we decided to push things a little further by creating an entirely new — and much more interactive — mobile version.
As you can see from the video above, the mobile version is more interactive and expressive than the version we created for the browser. Since the primary interaction model on mobile is touch, we believe devices provide an opportunity for more playful and engaging experiences.
Delivering these types of experiences on mobile devices today frequently means having to build native applications for every platform you want to target. However, as the web platform becomes more powerful, we are going to see an increasing number of these experiences implemented entirely with standard web technologies.
