Testing the Bare Bones

Craig: We don’t do this with every application, but Twitterrific was complex enough that we started by putting together an interaction prototype. It was ugly. It used only standard buttons, no customized look or design. It just showed fake tweets, and it didn’t show any real data, but we could find out how the app would feel. One of the things that’s important for me in designing an iPhone app is how my fingers interact with the interface, and you can’t really get that from a Photoshop mockup. There’s a lot to be said for watching the transitions while you actually tap through the app. You have to experience the app enough so that you can base your designs on what you’re feeling.
