iPhone tabZone and pointed design

January 3, 2011

‘For a comfortable ergonomic experience, you should place primary tap targets in this (side of the screen opposite thumb) thumb-thumping hot zone. (…) This tap zone gives you hints about how to organize the visual hierarchy of tap targets.’
Clark 2010 p.59

Pointed design

  • Place important info at the top and sink controls to the bottom
  • Design to a 44 pixels rhythm
  • Where appropriate, create at-a-glance displays that avoid scrolling
  • Whittle onscreen elements to the bare minimum
  • Push advanced tools and controls to the background

Clark 2010 p. 73
