AD-Binning: Leveraging Around Device Space for Storing, Browsing and Retrieving Mobile Device Content

Exploring information content on mobile devices can be tedious and time consuming. We present Around-Device Binning, or AD-Binning, a novel mobile user interface that allows users to off-load mobile content in the space around the device. We informed our implementation of ADBinning by exploring various design factors, such as the minimum around-device target size, suitable item selection methods, and techniques for placing content in off-screen space. In a task requiring exploration, we find that ADBinning improves browsing efficiency by avoiding the minute selection and flicking mechanisms needed for onscreen interaction. We conclude with design guidelines for off screen content storage and browsing.
