4ourth Mobile is a design agency that focuses on the goals of your business and your customers.

We believe mobile is about providing relevant, useful, and ubiquitous information and communications tools to everyone, anywhere, at any time.


Steven Hoober wrote the book on mobile design patterns, and is best known for his ongoing research into how people really use touchscreen phones and tablets. He has been doing mobile and multi-channel design since 1999, designing the earliest mobile app store and the first Google mobile search for Sprint, several mobile browsers, and many mobile sites and apps. Steven maintains the 4ourth Mobile Patterns Wiki, regularly writes for UX Matters magazine, and UX Magazine, among other writing and speaking.

Brands we have worked with include AT&T, Qualcomm, Sprint, Samsung, Skyfire, Bitstream, VivoTech, TA Telecom, The Weather Channel, Thwapr, FaceDial, PillPhone, Copia, IGLTA, Lowe's, Hallmark, uClick, Bank Midwest, IBT, and U.S. Bank.
