When researchers extend a conventional communication application to mobile devices, the communication becomes ubiquitous. We recently examined a mobile communication application from a usability perspective. We found that despite the potentially high utility of the mobile communication application, it had usability issues that required user interface redesign. This paper is an alert for mobile and ubiquitous multimedia designers that they must not ignore usability considerations when designing software and hardware solutions for ubiquitous mobility.
