 Sep24 awarded Autobiographer Jun25 comment Has Fitts' Law been adapted to Touch screens? I share your thoughts. I was hoping that somebody have already done the job of calculating those A-s and B-s for such screens. Jun25 awarded Critic Jun25 comment Is there any difference in element minimal sizes on 10 and 24 inch touch screens? I must disagree with the answer. "The minimum effective size is still pretty much the same" - nope, they are not for many reasons. The distance my users would work with app is at least 1/2 a meter, and 1 meter at most. Moreover, some users would place our app on the left of them, some - on the right, and some - in front. "there's really no reason not to make the buttons physically larger" - nope, there is a reason called Designer, who have never designed anything for huge touch screens, and another reason is Project Manager, who loves the Designer. But these two are my problems, I suppose. Jun21 comment Is there any difference in element minimal sizes on 10 and 24 inch touch screens? @JonW you are correct, of course. I am looking for some numbers or calculation maybe. I believe I have to calculate all the stuff myself using Fitts' formula. Thank you. Jun21 comment Is there any difference in element minimal sizes on 10 and 24 inch touch screens? I have solved the Fitts' formula to `W = D/(2^((T-a)/b) - 1)` and got the result, that button size should be more than one meter. :) Either I am wrong, or the formula does not fit my needs.
