It all started the other day when I was trying to explain the difference between RPC & REST to colleagues. I used “dumb phone” vs. iPhone to illustrate my points, which was well received. Then with more ideas popping into my head, I decided to visualize them all and share with others.
Some statements in the slides are arguable, e.g., I love the Pianist application, truly. But I just couldn’t imagine typing on the screen all day 🙂 Anyway I deem the content should be very helpful for better understanding of REST as well as UX by changing perspectives.
BTW: I am an iPhone lover, but not iPhone user, yet. So some observations about iPhone might not be 100% correct. And I hope to touch deep into iPhone OS developer experience soon.
