what we learned MADE WITH LOVE IN SEATTLE BY‣ iPad users are incredibly sophisticated ‣ Users have an expectation of the “Apple Aesthetic” when it comes to interaction and user experience. Pixel perfection is important.‣ Users prefer Need-driven over Marketing-driven Design ‣ Users are in control of their iPad experience, and will remove, close, delete or leave anything they perceive as marketing or advertising activity.‣ Less is more ‣ This is true when talking about animations or content on each screen. Users have an expectation of interactions but are impatient with too much animation.‣ Gestures Matter ‣ Web metaphors, like scrolling are considered “cheap” or “lower quality.” Users prefer “native” metaphors like swiping.
