A Dad's Plea To Developers Of iPad Apps For Children

A Dad's Plea To Developers Of iPad Apps For Children | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
Through extensive observational research, I’ve discovered what works and doesn’t work for my daughter, so I’m going to shamelessly generalize my findings to all children and propose four essential guidelines for developers who work on iPad apps for children...


A no nonsense approach ...

  • Affordance Is King
  • Pagination Is A primary Action
  • The Menu Is A Distant Seconday Action
  • If You Try To Trick My Kid Into Buying Stuff, You're Dead To Me

... and a must read.

Second screen user experience. Great example!

How will this effect the people sitting behind?
Katie Chase's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:55 AM

This defeats the purpose of going to the movie theater entirely. It does not make sense to have everyone in the audience bring their tablet to the screening to be able to interact. When everyone in the theater is on a tablet, who is actually watching the film? Audience interactions are a great idea but they are not appropriate for places such as movie theaters. –Aellise Czupryna

Dancing Digitally, With The iPad As A Stage

Dancing Digitally, With The iPad As A Stage | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Kelsey Campbell-Dollaghan: "In theater, there’s a concept called the “fourth wall.” It refers to performances that involve the audience, breaking down the invisible “wall” between performer and spectator. A new project from Pentagram goes even further, breaking down the “fifth wall” between the performer and a digital audience."
