Carnival #253

This week's Carnival of the Mobilists is hosted by global mobile strategist and author Tomi T Ahonen at Communities Dominate Brands. I'm happy to be included again with all the other smart designers, developers and mobile thinkers. The Carnival is a now-monthly collection of the Web’s best writing on mobile and wireless, hosted and collected by a different site each week. If you are already reading our blog, or anything else mobile, you should add this collection to your subscription list as well.
Talking about tracing... Steve and Alison Hoober on their blog have a very useful guide to showing smartphone-related hand gestures in guidebooks and tutorials. They have really put some thinking into it, to make the gestures intuitive and consistent.
Well, in all fairness, the best of these gesture libraries are not ours, but a collection of many others folks'. Be sure to check out the whole list of them, as well as many other Drawing Tools & Templates at the Wiki in support of Designing Mobile Interfaces, which should come out in just the next few weeks. Next week the Carnival has no scheduled host. If you would like to host an upcoming Carnival of the Mobilists, drop Peggy Anne Salz a line.
