CocoaHeads Thu Nov 12: Designing for iPhone

The Briefs framework, created by Rob Rhyne, gives you a way to quickly build working prototypes of iPhone applications. It made a big splash at C4, and has generated quite a bit of buzz with Cocoa/UI nerds. Rob has agreed to speak at CocoaHeads on Thursday, November 12 at 7pm. The meeting is in Garage 1 at Infinite Loop 4 at Apple. This is a new talk covering iPhone design techniques, using Briefs as part of the workflow.

Briefs


Here's the description from Rob:

Designing user interfaces is a lot of work. It's misunderstood and often under-valued. It's viewed as a luxury, an add-on a playground for hipsters and artists. On the iPhone, however, design is necessary to build a successful product. The catch is that the perfect design cannot be derived or solved it must be discovered! What are the right questions to ask? How do you know what works and what doesn't? What is special about designing for the iPhone?

This Thursday I'll share tips, some tricks and a simple process to follow which encourages new thinking about how your iPhone app works. The process emphasizes speed and validation by actually using your product before it's built. I'll also talk about some of the tools I use, including a toolkit I've built called Briefs.

I would recommend having the web and iphone code in the same rails app. Just use PhoneGap framework to make rails app viewable from iphone. And yes, u need separate design for the iPhone...
