What makes a good application? A new, cool interface? Ease of use? Responding to users’ needs? Why do some applications become part of the everyday life of their users, while others are downloaded and never used?
This seminar addresses these questions. In discussing the secrets of a successful iPhone, iPad, or Android app, we use data from our own ethnographic and user-research studies, and from expert reviews. This seminar complements our seminar Mobile User Experience 1, which is focused on basic mobile usability principles that are valid on all platforms. In this seminar we will use examples from existing iPhone, iPad, and Android apps and will focus on the challenges that are specific to designing native apps for touchscreen devices. Although we do discuss nonconventional app interfaces, this seminar is not intended for game developers.
