Platform Differences 1/2 „An iPhone OS-based device is not a desktop or laptop computer, and an iPhone application is not the same as a desktop application.“ • The display is paramount Compact Sreen Size - 480*320 pixels (iPhone 3 and lower), 960*640 pixels (since iPhone 4), 1024*768 pixels (iPad) - since Retina even more • Device orientation can change to any time • Memory is not unlimted • Apps Respond to gestures, not clicks • One screen at a time Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

Platform Differences 2/2 „An iPhone OS-based device is not a desktop or laptop computer, and an iPhone application is not the same as a desktop application.“ • Preferences are available in settings • Apps have a more or less just on single window • Minimal User Help • Two Types of Software Run in iOS • Safari on iOS provides the Web Interface Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

What Are Your Options? „Depending on the implementation details and its intended audience, some types of software may be better suited to your needs than others.“ • An iPhone Application (available in App Store) • Web-only Content (compare http://itunes.tugraz.at): - Web Application - Optimized webpage - Compatible webpage • Hybrid Applications (access to web content) Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

3 Application Styles „... applicaton styles, based on visual and behavioral characterstics, data model, and user experience.“ • What do you expect to be the user‘s motivation for using the application? • What do you itend to be the user‘s experience while using the application? • What is the goal or focus of the application? • How does the application organize and display the information people care about? Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

Productivity Applications „ ... enables tasks that are based on the organization and manipulation of detailed information“ • Organizing the list • Adding and subcontracting • Drilling down, performing tasks on reached level Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

Utility Applications „ ... perfoms a simply task that requires a minimum of user input.“ • visually attractive • enhancement of information display • Organize of information into a flattened list of items; no hierachy Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

Immersive Applications „ ... offers a full-screen, visually rich environment that‘s focused on the content and the user‘s experience with that content“ • tends to hide much of device‘s user interface • use of nonstandards controls appropriate • information presentation in the context of game-play, story or experience Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

Choosing an App Style „When in doubt, keep it simple.“ • Pare the feature list to the minimum • To bring ideas from you desktop application to an iPhone application, apply the 80-20 rule (the largest percentage of users will use a very limited number of features) • Find the core tasks Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

Case Study: Mail „ ... when people are mobile, their needs for an email application are simpler, and they want access to core functionality quickly.“ Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014

Design the App For the Device „... you need to make sure that your app looks and feels like it was designed expressly for an iOS-based device.“ • Embrace iOS UI paradigms (controls should look tappabel, App structure should be clean, ...) • Ensure that unvirsal apps run well on both (iPhone and iPad) • Reconsider web-based designs • Tailor customization to the task • Prototype and Iterate Human Interface Guidlines for Mobile Applications - Martin Ebner 2014
