I am designing an iPad application that will be used in a kiosk. The user will not download the application from the Appstore but will instead walk up to the iPad with the application already running. This is what I have so far.
- Can't assume the user has learned the UI conventions that most iPad applications use.
- All UI elements should be slightly larger than a typical iPad application since it will be used at arm's length i.e. the user will not be curled up with it on a couch.
- As per almost all Kiosks I've used there is a 'Start Over' button on every screen
I'm kind of conflicted on the the start over button because the UX on the iPad is more explicit than any Kiosk I've ever used before (animations showing deeper/shallower navigation).
Are these ideas valid and are there any other considerations I should keep in mind while designing this application?
