User interface design for iPhone apps

  • Knowledge needed: Nothing but a keen eye for detail and basic Photoshop
  • Requires: Pen, paper, Photoshop (or any graphic editor that can output .pngs)
  • Project time: 2-5 hours

Your first project in iPhone UI design normally comes about in one of two ways. Maybe your client has entrusted you with their iPhone app after completing a website for them. Or maybe you’ve been a bit cheeky and enhanced your skill set a tad because it’s an area that interests you, and you now find yourself with an app to design, wondering where to start. Either way, designing for iOS4 devices is totally different to the web and shouldn’t be launched into by simply opening Photoshop, as tempting as it may be.
