Product Overview

"It's rare to find a person like Josh Clark who speaks so intently to the topic of interface design and mobile devices."?John Maeda, President of Rhode Island School of Design

"Having been completely immersed in iPhone UI design for the past 2+ years, and even writing on the subject myself, I was excited to review an early copy of Tapworthy, but didn't expect any grand revelations. Boy, was I wrong. Tapworthy not only summed up just about everything I think I know about iPhone User Interface design, but challenged me to think about the typical iPhone user in new ways. This book is an invaluable resource to ANYONE working on mobile apps."?David Barnard Founder of App Cubby

So you've got an idea for an iPhone app along with everyone else on the planet. Set your app apart with elegant design, efficient usability, and a healthy dose of personality.
