Is the search button becoming obsolete

General usability guidelines states users expect a search feature to contain besides the search field, a button labeled "search". Looking at recent designs of search, the button is disappearing. These lack the search button.

  • All Apple search, i.e., Spotlight and iOS. They have a clear button. On iOS, the keyboard provides a search button.
  • Google Chrome. The address bar functions as a search and is activated by pressing Enter.

Heuristic Evaluation on an iPad app

I recently conducted a heuristic evaluation on an iPad game.

Being an Interaction Designer in the iPhone applications world

Hi all,

Favicon and Apple Bookmark Icon

My company is an interactive agency. For a few years now as a standard
procedure we've created favicons (favicon.ico) for websites we build.
Recently, we have started creating an Apple Bookmark Icon
(customIcon.png) as well.

browsing on a computer I actually use the favicon. In fact all my
browser bookmarks are simply the favicon. It allows me to have more
bookmarks without displaying any text.

Why Understanding Business Models is Important to Ix Designers

Interaction design is hard enough to do when the business model is
clear. When the designer knows exactly how making a better design will
increase the value of the company, (thereby increasing the chances
they'll get a raise if they do a good job,) it's still hard to know
what to do.

All one has to do is look to Apple to see how this works. When iTunes
6.0 came out in January of 2006, they introduced a feature called the
mini-store, which, for all practical purposes, bombed.
