Segundo Moran (1981), interface é “parte de um
sistema computacional com a qual a pessoa entra em contato – física, perceptiva
ou conceitualmente”. Com base nessa
definição pode-se então afirmar que a interface não é somente aquilo que o

Since this place is dedicated to improving all of our skills, I think I will take the right to promote an App I have been working on because it might save a lot of time to anyone who is starting a mobile application. As most of you already know, the mobile space is growing at a fast pace and delivering top quality mockup to clients and developers is more than ever crucial.
