Apple has posted its iPhone Human Interface Guidelines (HIG), a document meant to help developers create usable applications for the device. The iPhone HIG offers developers in-depth information on the iPhone’s user interface, the concepts behind it, and how to design for it.
Of particular interest to some may be a note from the HIG which leaves room for possible future native third-party iPhone applications. It states, “Currently, developers create web applications for iPhone, not native applications.
Therefore, this document focuses solely on the presentation of web applications and other web content on iPhone.” The document is available for viewing online or as a PDF download. [via Daring Fireball].
