Best practice on iPad user interface design

Thanks to Colin Hancox, who pointed me to this article on the QlikView Blog by Chris Mabardy, Director of Product Marketing at QlikView.

The new mobile platform coming out in QV10 SR2 is new to all of us so it is great to have good guidance on building apps.

In general, all your old applications will work on the mobile platform.  The main considerations for iPad are screen real-estate (1024x768) and gestures instead of mouse.  If you expect that users will want access to right-mouse features, you need to turn on the new "Menu" icon in the caption.

After that, you just follow good design principals for screen layout.  If you haven't already come across it, I recommend Stephen Few's and any of Stephen's books.
