UIETips: Designing Intuitive Microinteractions

In this week’s UIEtips, I talk about designing better microinteractions.

“Wait! What did you just do there?”

In this case, I had just unlocked my iPhone by sliding over a notification’s icon.

The person I was standing next to had never seen anyone unlock their phone that way. They’d had an iPhone since the very first days and had no idea you could do this.
