  • Content formatting

Be careful! The mobile users most of the time access the content on-the-go, and they like to see the things in a single view, in place of zooming the content or scrolling horizontally. The same applies to iPhone Application Development as well. Create the layout wherein the content should get fit in the screen of the devices and appear smoothly at once.

  • Controls size

The buttons are actually the interactive actions that you want the users to take, and if they find hassle in hitting the target, creating the controls will be of no use. Make certain that the buttons you are creating must be at least 44 points x 44 points in size so that they can be easily pressed with fingers.
