Usability presentation for iPhone apps and store

Usability notes from iPhone apps
I found these interesting notes on how people use the iPhone, mostly usability-oriented, focused on a couple key applications and areas. It’s useful info for anyone who is building on the iPhone platform, which has some very unique interactions that even expert users have a tough time mastering.

The presentation covers the following apps:

  • browsing
  • time/calendar/alarm
  • maps
  • youtube
  • downloaded apps: air hockey, koi pond, labyrinth
  • iphone store (including pricing, reviews, etc.)

Then there’s a nice wrap-up of best practices for iPhone app usability, which is always nice.

Here’s the full presentation – you’ll have to click through the link if you are reading this in an RSS reader:
