10 beautiful iPhone app user interfaces

A lot goes into designing a great user experience for an app, starting with the basic functionality. Let’s face it, until you have that right, you shouldn’t even be thinking of anything else. But once you have it – once your app is usable – comes the really exciting time when you can layer it with beauty, fun, delight, and other awesome toppings.

The apps showcased in this article do just that. Although aesthetics matter, the beauty of the apps featured here is definitely more than skin deep. The bit that is often overlooked when we talk about the user experience of the interactive objects we call apps is the interactions. It is these interactions that determine the character and quality of the conversations you have with an app. And the apps in this showcase, ranked in no particular order, are delightful conversation partners indeed.
