In addition to the touchscreen interface, other user interfaces include web interface, software interface, game interface and mobile interface. The Web interface and mobile interface can be said to be two typical representatives.
To describe the differences between the touchscreen interface and other user interfaces, compare the two typical interfaces and draw a conclusion. Web interface and Touch screen interface: First of all in user navigation. On the Web page, the user fundamentally controls the behavior of 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, the user between different sites, different designs run to run, with considerable liquidity. In general, designers must abandon full control of the Web interface, allowing users and their clients to decide on a part. In the touchscreen design, designers can control when a user can go. You don't want to let a menu item work, you can make him gray. You can throw a dialog box to abort the computer until the user answers your question. Next in the device display aspect. On the Web site, a user may visit a website through a traditional computer, or a handheld device with a pen-click, and any website design looks different on a device. And in the touchscreen design, you can control every pixel, when you make a dialog box, you can determine its actual size on the user screen, you know the final size of the display. Again, in the pointing device aspect. Traditional web interface, the user is through the mouse arrows to complete the operation, and in the touch screen interface, pointing device is no longer the mouse arrow but the human finger, this is bound to change in the button. Finally, the use of the environment is different.
Most of the use of touch screen in outdoor, such as entertainment venues ordering order system, Business Inquiry machine, automatic ticket machine, and web browsing use mostly indoors (except for occasional use of laptops in public places wireless internet). Mobile interface and touch screen interface: On the phone interface, although the final display device of the interface is varied, it is similar in size, that is, no more than an adult's palm size. So it determines how much information, font size, and so on in such a range of issues. In the touch screen 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, the size of the display screen will vary a lot, so in the layout, navigation, text and other aspects will be changed. In pointing devices, the mobile phone interface generally use text-type marking or light display or pen point, and touch screen interface pointing device is people's fingers, so in the need for the size of the button there are obvious differences.
