Designers still often create a specific user interface for ev- ery target platform they wish to support, which is time- consuming and error-prone. The need for a multi-platform user interface design approach that designers feel comfort- able with increases as people expect their applications and data to go where they go. We present Gummy, a multi- platform graphical user interface builder that can generate an initial design for a new platform by adapting and combin- ing features of existing user interfaces created for the same application. Our approach makes it easy to target new plat- forms and keep all user interfaces consistent without requir- ing designers to considerably change their work practice.
