Visualforce in Salesforce1 UI/UX considerations

Salesforce1 cannot auto-magically (yes, its a word) make Visualforce

pages mobile-optimized

#forcewebinar

Visualforce UI/UX considerations

Design VF pages taking the limited real-estate in mobile into account Decide which form-factors your page has to support - phone, tablet, both Develop for the mobile context

Use device features like geolocation, camera etc. where appropriate Mobile version of the page/app does not have to support all the bells and whistles

less is more

Optimize for your most common mobile use case discovery, data entry, search etc.

Use Responsive Design principles (same as the Salesforce1 app)
