Five Things That Irritate iPhone Users

Create with Context recently brought iPhone users to its Silicon Valley lab to observe them using iPhone apps. They found that poor app design can drive users crazy.

“There’s a set of guidelines [developers] can get from Apple that say here’s what icons you should use for these type of functions and here’s how you should lay them out,” says Bill Westerman, principal and CTO of Create with Context, a design and research firm. “This gets you 70 percent of the way there, but then there’s this other 30 percent that are de facto standards which have evolved over time.”

The Five Most Annoying App Design Flaws
1. Aggravating app and button inconsistencies
2. If I Tap this, what will happen?
3. I didn’t tap that damn button!
4. Where are my visual cues?
5. Ugly icons on the Home screen

Hit up the link below to read a detailed explanation of these flaws...

The most irritating thing about the iPhone is that Apple made/own it. Apple suck!! And it took owning an iTouch for me to learn that.

Im not even sure of the whole point of the article...just give me my freakin MMS. I mean no one said it was the perfect phone. I could easily give 5 things I hate about my Bold, or Hero as well.

The only one I can agree with is #5. I can't even understand what they mean with the other 4 comments. and I've used iPhone since the initial launch.
