iPhone Tip a Day

Amazed by Apple’s Designs

Posted on: July 12, 2009

Apple’s designs never cease to amaze me.

I was playing around with the new Stopwatch in iPhone OS 3.0 and realized that the “Lap” button works on a “Touch Down” event. What this means is that the lap button will be pressed if you press your finger down on the button. Usually, other button have a “Touch Up Inside” event, which means that those buttons are pressed only after you have pressed your finger down on the button and lifted your finger off the button (not off any other part of the screen).

I suppose it is because when you are running, your finger could slip off the button when you go to lift your finger off the screen, so Apple made it a bit easier for pressing the “Lap” button by making it a “Touch Down” event.

It’s a little thing but I love the small attentions to detail that are made.
