1. The similarities between the touchscreen interface and the general interface In addition to the touchscreen interface, other user interfaces include web interface, software interface, game interface and mobile phone interface. Touch screen interfaces and they have a lot in common: the most basic point is that they are all interactive systems, all of which fall into the category of software design rather than physical design. Second, whether it is the touchscreen interface or Web interface, they are part of the graphical user interface design, that is, they have a graphical user interface common properties, such as windows, icons, menus, pointing devices. It is only in some special cases that these constituent elements will change accordingly.
Again, touch screen interfaces and other interface designs involve almost the same knowledge in both color psychology and graphic design.
Finally, touch screen interface and other interface design concept is consistent, is "people-oriented", so that users in the first contact with this interface feel at a glance, do not need much training can be easily used, so that users first operation to obtain a happy feeling.
2. Differences between the touchscreen interface and the general interface In addition to the touchscreen interface, other user interfaces include web interface, software interface, game interface and mobile phone interface. One of the Web interface and mobile phone interface can be said to be two typical representatives.
To describe the differences between the touchscreen interface and other user interfaces, compare them separately with two typical interface representatives, and then draw a conclusion. Web interface and touchscreen interface: first reflected in user navigation. On the Web page, the user fundamentally controls his own use of the Web page. Users can copy the path without any influence from the designer: for example, users can go directly from the search engine to the inside of the site, without having to go through the home page, users in different sites, between different designs running around, with considerable fluidity. In general, designers must give up full control of the Web interface so that users and their clients can decide part of it. In a touchscreen design, designers can control when a user can go. You don't want a menu item to work, you can make him gray. You can throw out a dialog box to abort the operation of your computer until the user answers your question. Second, in terms of device display. When it comes to websites, users may visit websites through a traditional computer, or they may be handheld devices with pen clicks, and any website design looks very different on a variety of devices. And in the touchscreen design, you can control every pixel, and when you make a dialog box, you can determine its true size on the user's screen, and you know how big the final display is. Again, when it comes to pointing devices. Traditional web interface, the user is through the mouse arrow to complete the operation, and in the touchscreen interface, the pointing device is no longer the mouse arrow but the human finger, so it is bound to change in the button. Finally, it is different to use the environment.
Touch screen use is mostly outdoors, such as entertainment venues ordering system, business query machine, automatic ticket machine, and the use of Web pages are mostly carried out indoors (in addition to the occasional use of laptops in public places wireless internet access). Mobile interface and touchscreen interface: In the mobile interface, although the interface of the final display devices are diverse, but in size is much the same, that is, no more than an adult's palm size. So it determines how much information, font size and other related issues are arranged in such a range. In the touchscreen interface, the final display size is also fixed can be predicted, but the size is generally larger than the phone screen, and for different devices, different operations, display screen size will be a lot apart, so in the layout, navigation, text and other aspects will change.
In the pointing device, the mobile phone interface generally uses text-type marking or bright display or pen points, and the touch screen interface of the pointing device is people's fingers, so there is a clear difference in the size of the button required.
