This paper proposes sets of patterns useful in designing scalable mobile app user interfaces targeted at multiple mobile platforms. These sets of patterns, called mobile-UiTS patterns, are derived from mobile platform vendors' style guidelines and the common practices found in existing mobile apps. The resulting patterns provide solutions in specific contexts for the transition of mobile app UI design and interaction from one platform to the other ones, and also tackle the scaling issues that arise when moving a mobile app from small-size smart devices (phones) to large-size smart devices (tablets) and vice versa. In this work, we focus mainly on the categorization of these patterns and provide a template for writing the pattern description.
