Because this book will focus on interface design, we won’t dive too far into which programming DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN PLATFORMS languages are the most efficient or simplest to learn, but you should be cognizant of the technical hurdles surrounding a project. Designers typically see themselves as artists, thus becoming too focused on the creative project and not enough on the technical cogs that spin in the background. This is one of the biggest mistakes designers make, especially early in their careers.

Just six months after he defended his product’s very existence, Jobs sat on stage at the All Things Digital conference and made a now famous statement: Traditional computers are like trucks and iPads are like cars. In the early days of transportation, he pointed out, many people drove trucks merely because there was no other type of vehicle available. But as people and products evolved, the car became the preferred method of transportation and dominated the world’s roads. Jobs saw tablet computing as a digital interaction method primed to become the sedan of the information superhighway.

The success of the app store model means there are now hundreds of thousands of applications to compete against in the marketplace, but that also means there are hundreds of thousands of apps to use as inspiration. Don’t hesitate to look at other successful applications, especially the top downloads on the platform you’re designing on, for quality examples of design, implementation of special features, and use of interface components. Mobile app stores have now enjoyed five years of success and growth, so learn from the wealth of experience gained by designers and developers.
