There is no denial of importance of design in iPhone application development, same as Web Design, which plays a vital role in success of any website. Apple iPhone is a sophisticated device that combines the revolutionary multi-touch interface with powerful features, such as email and instant-messaging capability, a full-featured web browser, and a mobile phone. Huge and ever growing popularity of Apple iPhone has given rise to the trend of iPhone application development.
Good design is fundamental to a good iPhone application. Although the main purpose of an application is to enable a task, the importance of an application’s appearance and aesthetics should not be underestimated, same is the case with iPhone application development. Appearance has a strong impact on functionality: an application that appears cluttered or illogical is hard to understand and use.
Good application design does not solely involve how beautiful your application is. It is a measure of how well the appearance of your application integrates with its function. Just to take an example, a productivity application should keep decorative elements subtle and in the background, while focusing more on highlighting the task by providing standard controls and behaviors.
