A new online publication, Design Explosions — the brainchild of UX Launchpad — kicks off a series of “design lessons” with an in-depth look at how current Google and Apple iOS mapping interfaces work and why. Design Explosions assumes that product building teams are smart and talented, and that there are well-considered reasons that underlie why the products look and work as they do. Its in-depth analysis of Apple Maps and Google Maps on iOS makes for a fascinating and informative read, and provides a welcome respite from the usual “We Look at Two Interfaces and Tell You Who Won” type of critique.follow link
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
