Chapter 11

Maximizing Application Usability

What's in this Chapter?

  • Improving the usability of your iPad applications
  • Understanding foundational human interface principles
  • Transitioning from traditional web-based designs
  • Embracing the iOS user interface paradigm
  • Following best practices on mobile app usability
  • Key ideas from Apple's Human Interface Guidelines
