Designing an iPad Optimized Website

Web Development - September 5th, 2011

I’ve previously written about some of the technical possibilities we have to tailor a website to an iPad (part one and part two), this time I’m going to give some directions on how to design page layout and interactions for iPads and other tablets based on my experience surfing the web, using apps and reading PDF magazines for the last year. I’m using my iPad at least 1.5 hours every day (my commute is around 45 mins using public transportation) so I’ve racked up a number of hours and have had the time to reflect on my usage patterns and the design and interaction choices I believe work and which can use some improvement.
