The Best Book On Designing iPhone & iPad Apps EPUB
For iPhone and iPad users, mobile applications are an active part of daily life: they help us get half-priced cocktails at the neighborhood bar, find a nearby pet supply store, and keep us up to date on the score of the home team. They're being poked at and scrolled through as were rush through subway cars, cruise the grocery store, or need to pass the time while waiting for an always-tardy friend. Users who are often on the go use apps with specific objectives in mind, and are bounded by certain temporal and physical constraints.

It delves into and uncovers how to identify and design for the iOS user's specific expectations and needs. The eBook highlights successful design elements, breaks down iOS device real estate and features, and discusses how designers and developers can stay at the forefront of innovation in a quickly and consistently evolving app-centered world.
