Same as touch screen interface, other user interfaces include web interface, software interface, game interface and mobile phone interface. Among them webpage interface and mobile phone interface can be said to be two typical representatives. To describe the differences between the touch screen interface and other user interfaces, it is necessary to compare them with two typical interface representatives, and then draw a conclusion.
Web interface and touch screen interface:
first of all, in user navigation. On a web page, the user fundamentally controls the behavior of his own use of the page. The user can take a path without any influence from the designer: for example, the user can enter the site directly from the search engine, without having to go through the front page, and the user can run between different sites, different designs, Have considerable liquidity. In general, designers must give up full control of the web interface and let users and their clients decide part. In a touch screen design, designers can control when and where users can go. You don't want a menu item to work, you can make it gray. You can throw a dialog box to abort the computer until the user answers your question.
Second, in the device display. On the website side, the user may visit the website through a traditional computer, or it may be a hand-held device with a pen click, and any website design will look very different from one device to another. In a touch screen design, you can control every pixel, and when you make a dialog, you can determine the actual size of the screen, and you know how big the display is. Again, in the direction of equipment. In the traditional web interface, the user completes the operation through the mouse arrow, but on the touch screen interface, the pointing device is no longer the mouse arrow but the human finger, which is bound to produce the change in the button aspect.
Finally, the use of the environment is different. The use of touch screens is mostly outdoor, such as entertainment ordering systems, business enquiry machines, ticket vending machines, etc., while web browsing is mostly done indoors (except occasionally using laptops to access wireless Internet in public places).
Phone interface and touch screen interface:
on the phone interface, although the final display device is diverse, but in the same size, that is, no more than the size of an adult palm. So the decision in such a range, how much information, font size and other related issues. On the touch screen interface, the size of the final screen is also predictable, but the size is generally larger than the phone screen, and for different devices, different operations, the display screen size will vary greatly, so in the layout, navigation, Words and other aspects will change. In the pointing device, the mobile phone interface usually uses the text type mark or the bright display or the pen dot, but the touch screen interface's pointing device is the person's finger, therefore has the obvious difference in the need button size aspect.
