GNOME-Shell mobile layout mockup by nsrosenqvist GNOME-Shell mobile layout mockup by nsrosenqvist
I wanted to test out some design ideas surrounding the GNOME-Shell after I've seen all the nice new updates that came with 3.10. This is in no way completely thought through, it's just a quick attempt at translating the desktop UI onto a smaller touch device (I know that there is no way of accessing the overview except through a hardware button). All comments and critiques are welcome!

# UPDATE 2013-10-06:
I decided to make a second revision of the design and this time basing it on the 1280x768 display of a LG Nexus 4, so that I get a proper reference for the position and size of elements.

Changes:
* The shape of elements adhere closer to the style of GNOME-Shell's default theme but I've kept my changes that I think improves the user experience. An example is that I've chosen a flatter look and removed borders of most elements.
* The overview now also has the search bar so that it's more accessible.
* An example of the window list overflowing has been provided.
* The pagination on the view showing all installed apps ordered by title are now placed horizontally, differing from the desktop GNOME-Shell since the swiping gesture is then more comfortable on a handheld device.
* An example of a search view has been added.
* An example for the notifications view in the overlay has been added.

p.s. Sorry #GIMP-Artists, this time I implemented the designs in Inkscape since I found it to be much easier handling "objects" like interface elements and aligning objects with it. Though this presentation of all screens has been put together in The GIMP :)

NOTE:
The search results are supposed to show a longer list with results from the web, even direct results from google/ddg, I just didn't have the time to make it more detailed.

Funny, I just made a mockup of GNOME on phones by myself and posted it on Google+ some weeks ago. Interesting that we had the same idea :)

Yeah :) I got kinda tired of only seeing cool mockups for Unity Touch, I wanted to show some love for GS as well :P

Spiceofdesign has a couple of nice mockups of both unity for desktop and mobile: spiceofdesign.deviantart.com/g…

On Ubuntu App Developers you'll see a lot of nice app designs by Lucas Romero Di Benedetto: plus.google.com/u/0/communitie…

Thanks for the links! I'm not really a fan of Ubuntu, but I'll join that community anyway :)
I agree, spiceofdesign's art is awesome.

I'm there mostly to see how the app ecosystem evolves :) what happened to your GS-mockup? I can't seem to find it in your deviantart gallery.

Oh, it was a quick GIMP edit using a few screenshots from GNOME on my laptop, nothing fancy, so I didn't post it on dA. I posted it in the Google+ GNOME community instead :)

That mockup is the proof, that Gnome-shell is suitable for any screen-size. (o:

Thanks! I've just updated the design, do think it was an improvement?
