Have you ever been angry at your computer or cell phone? Do you
sometimes wonder why it's so hard to set your watch to the
correct time, or why getting your DVR to record your favorite shows
is such a chore? Do you dream of making products that are free of
these issues and that your customers can actually figure out how to
use? This book shows you how to design applications and websites
that people will not only use but will absolutely love.
In this book for designers, developers, and product managers,
expert developer and user interface designer Lukas Mathis explains
how to make usability the cornerstone of every point in your design
process, walking you through the necessary steps to plan the design
for an application or website, test it, and get usage data after
the design is complete. He shows you how to focus your design
process on the most important thing: helping people get things
done, easily and efficiently.
The author presents a collection of valuable tips - organized in
four distinct parts, filled with clever illustrations, and
supported by fascinating psychological research. He teaches
techniques that help you plan and evaluate your user interface
design, and inspires you to look at design in a whole new way. He
tells you exactly what to look for, and what to avoid, in creating
applications and websites that people will be excited to use.
