Comments: An interesting book on the importance of getting the small details in Ux design right.
Top 3 Lessons:
1. When microinteractions are done well, you get to design “signature moments” – e.g. “You’ve got Mail.”
2. The more frequent the microinteraction, the more visible it should be.
3. The best, most elegant, microinteractions are often those that allow users a variety of verbs with the fewest possible nouns. E.g. users can enter any credit card and the field auto detects which one it is (versus asking users to select a credit card first).
