I'm currently designing a Visio flow regarding a MPKG installer for Macs, and am wondering how I can make the experience more visually compelling and clearer for the user.
When I look at how to install Firefox on a Mac (http://tinyurl.com/4lt6cy), particularly the third image (http://tinyurl.com/5vp6ll), it looks really cool, simple and straightforward: drag icon 1 onto icon 2, following the instructions on the background graphics.
My installer works differently: you insert the disc, double-icon the disc icon on the desktop and open a Finder window where you find an MPKG icon (see image attached to this mail). Double-click the MPKG to start a standard Mac software installer (http://tinyurl.com/49evgv).
My question is: can I make the Finder window containing the MPKG as compelling as that Firefox drag-icon-onto-icon? I haven't found any technical info on this at the Apple.com or other sites. Does anybody accustomed to designing for the Mac have any ideas on this issue?
