Mobile Business Apps bear a huge potential to increase employee productivity, working comfort, and even sales if they are of high quality. Thereby, usability and user experience are seen as the key quality attributes. This paper shortly describes a constructive user centered method (mConcAppt) for UI and interaction design that is closely interwoven with all other activities in the software engineering lifecycle. Ensuring a high quality product by construction, the method clearly defines those interfaces to other activities. Thus, mConcAppt serves as a driver for information exchange and communication within mobile app engineering teams. Experiences from various applications in practice are shown that describe those communication needs and interfaces in detail.
