Overview

It s the little things that turn a good digital product into a great one. With this full color practical book, you ll learn how to design effective microinteractions: the small details that exist inside and around features. How can users change a setting? How do they turn on mute, or know they have a new email message?

Through vivid, real-world examples from today s devices and applications, author Dan Saffer walks you through a microinteraction s essential parts, then shows you how to use them in a mobile app, a web widget, and an appliance. You ll quickly discover how microinteractions can change a product from one that s tolerated into one that s treasured.

  • Explore a microinteraction s structure: triggers, rules, feedback, modes, and loops
  • Learn the types of triggers that initiate a microinteraction
  • Create simple rules that define how your microinteraction can be used
  • Help users understand the rules with feedback, using graphics, sounds, and vibrations
  • Use modes to let users set preferences or modify a microinteraction
  • Extend a microinteraction s life with loops, such as Get data every 30 seconds
