Five Things That Irritate iPhone Users

Posted September 21, 2009 at 6:15pm by iClarified
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...

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.

Biggest irritating thing is not allowing apps to run in the background i.e. skype and notot allowing apps like skype to run over 3g Thank god for jailbreaking :)

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.

#6 : AT&T #7 : AT&T NOT allowing a 10 Year old Technology of MMS Messaging #8 : AT&T being the Only Game in Town

I do not support them doing that. I was stating a fact that a lot of companies sell exclusive phones to certain carriers. It's the very same thing apple is doing. And no, I don't think it's right. But, however, it is the way the industry work because later it causes the 'copying' to begin which brings about different phones by different companies that do similar things. Perfect example cars. One company comes out with headlights that turn when you do, that sparks others to try and make it better. Same thing happening here with the iPhone and blackberry and lg touch and all the others. What I hate is when people complain about something they knew very much about! Complaining isn't going to do any good, but it's understandable to voice one's opinion about something, it's the 'whining'(spell check please). Don't sit and act as if apple is going to give you everything you want. Or any company for that matter. It's just not going to happen. <--- and that was not directed to the person above this comment. Companies that sell phone unlocked in other countries do it because they want to. To be quite honest, maybe they saw ahead of time and thought about the amount of people that would jailbreak their phones and unlock them to use them on other networks, who knows. I just know it sucks about the AT&T thing but I use them because of rollover and coverage in my area. To each their own.

I agree, and people seem to over look what these exects are saying. Steve Jobs has said that he knows what's best for the consumer. So people won't get anything from acting like babies and then still using their product like it's an addiction.
