I am very new to mobile programming...basically just starting to fiddle with it today. :)
I remember a project I did back in school that surveyed people (at a mall lol) and I asked them which text color on what background color was the most readable to them.
The clear winners were black text on white background, followed by white text on black background, and then green text on black background, etc etc.
Is there any sort of research of this kind done with mobile applications? I'm assuming the brightness and screen size have some kind of impact and I'd like to consider the options before designing.
Since I've not gotten too familiar with the mobile APIs yet, I'm looking for a more broader answer.
EDIT: I would like to consider not just text coloring, but also icon coloring, application coloring, etc.
EDIT 2: Target audience would depend on what kind of application. For gaming I'd be targeting a younger audience. For an informational application, I'd be targeting an older audience. Let's just say for argument's sake I'm developing for a younger audience (that opens up more potential for design considerations).
