Looking for research or commentary on what makes for a reasonable start up time for an iPad app. Obviously, it depends on the processor (iPad Air i.e. iPad5 will be much faster than an iPad2 or iPad Mini), the connection speed, and the size of the app. But say all of those factors are controlled/averaged...what is the amount of time a normal user would consider normal, reasonable, long, or rediculous to startup an iPad app?
Much of it is the expectation of what the app is giving the user, so I would love to hear how to manage that expectation as well.
We are currently working on an iPad app for pilots that will require different viewing modes for day and night. We are aware of the built-in feature that iPads have, but are curious about common practices and conventions that may exist in regards to this sort of design. Does anyone have any idea where we should be looking for information on this?
Several people who saw Keynotopia asked me if there is something similar for Axure. After doing some research, I found that most options aren't good enough. So with the help of a couple of designer friends, we created Axutopia, an awesome collection of Axure widget libraries for prototyping apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Facebook, Web and desktop.
Does anyone have suggestions for tools that could be used to moderate remote usability tests on an iPad? We have built a prototype via Axure and would like our participants to use the prototype in the context of their everyday. Most remote usability methods I've seen for iPads are pretty clunky – they require a screen share with another computer or hugging a laptop with a webcam, etc. Is there a simpler way to perform moderated, remote usability tests on an iPad?
