While interactions magazine is charged with exploring the art of design from every perch, sometimes that perspective is as basic - and often complex - as examining the influences that make us human. Editor-in-chief Jon Kolko explains that designers frequently find themselves reflecting on the nuances of human natures-that is, matters of cognitive psychology, social interaction, "and the desire for emotional resonance." The cover story reflects on the qualities of affinity, described by Matthew Jordan as the "emotional connection someone feels for a product or service as driven by these notions of beauty and identity." Jordan contends that along with usefulness and usability, affinity is the third influencer on a design’s success. Also in this issue: Don Norman and Jakob Nielsen on the usability of gestural interfaces. Jodi Forlizzi compares experience and service design. Ben McAllister on why "the conversation" isn’t always a conversation. Liz Danzico contends the design of [...]

Introduction to touch and multi-touch interfaces Touch-screens are device screens that provide interaction interface to various operating systems by using touch. Nowadays touch-screens are being used in a wide variety of devices and particularly in mobile computing with include laptops, smartphones, handhelds and lately tablet PCs. Touch-screen usage is approved to be straightforward, as touch-screen interaction is designed to be intuitive and quick to learn compared to other pointing devices ((Benko, H., Wilson, A. D., & Baudisch, P. (2006). Precise selection techniques for multi-touch screens. Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human Factors in computing systems (pp. 1263-1272). ACM.)), ((Ichikawa, H., Homma, M., & Umemura, M. (1999). An experimental evaluation of input devices for pointing work. International Journal of Production Economics, 60-61, 235-240. doi:10.1016/S0925-5273,98,00162-5.)). Touch-screens are used for interacting with many different types of applications in many different contexts and often replace traditional pointing devices such as the mouse and [...]
