Despite decades of research and years of us all carrying a touchscreen mobile handset around, there’s a lot of myth, disinformation and half truth about how they work, and how best to design for touch.
Steven has evaluated dozens of studies and performed some of his own to find out how your users really grasp their phones, and how to make touch targets that work reliably.
In this popular talk, you will find out how humans interface with touchscreen mobile devices, and how you can start to apply this information to your designs today.
You will learn:
- How users really hold their phones. Many different ways it turns out, and varying depending on how they expect to interact.
- About reach and obfuscation, so you can put actions in the right location, and information so it will be visible.
- How touchscreens work, so you can account for limits of the technology.
- About interference, and that errors happen, so you can make plans to prevent them from being catastrophic.
- How people see, perceive and target so you can pick type and target sizes that work for your users.
