The Fingerprints Left by iPad Apps


George Kokkinidis of Design Language News is like a modern day tracker, but instead of deciphering spoor in the wilderness, he's investigating the only fragments that remain from using touch interface: our fingerprints.

Because the primary input method of the iPad is a single piece of multitouch glass, developers have incredible flexibility to design unique user interfaces. It’s hard to appreciate the variety of UIs though, since turning the screen off removes virtually all evidence of them. To spotlight these differences, I looked at the only fragments that remain from using an app: fingerprints.

I was surprised not to see a mess of prints describing use of any program by a toddler. Because that's all I see when I turn my iPad off. :)
