iPad apps and websites usability report
Have you been wondering about how millions of iPad users are using websites and apps on their shiny new devices?
In their own words, “This report is less thorough than our normal research reports and does not contain as many detailed and actionable design guidelines as we usually provide”. However, unlike their usual practice, this report has been published free of cost.
A one sentence summary of the report reads like this. “iPad apps are inconsistent and have low feature discoverability, with frequent user errors due to accidental gestures. An overly strong print metaphor and weird interaction styles cause further usability problems.”
“It looks like a giant iPhone,” is the first thing users say when asked to test an iPad. (Their second comment? “Wow, it’s heavy.”)
