With Apple’s iOS Human Interface Guidelines now available on the iBook Store, here some important tips to keep in mind when designing an app.

  1. Don’t take space away from the content people care about.
  2. Delay a login requirement for as long as possible.
  3. When you design your app to function the way most of your users expect, you decrease the need for settings.
  4. Avoid defining new gestures unless your app is a game.
  5. Use a tone that’s informal and friendly, but not too familiar.
  6. Focus on the needs of 80% of your users.
  7. An iOS app never displays a Close or Quit option.
