9 Tips for Designing Rich Internet Applications

Bill Scoot over at Looks Good Works Well wrote a very interesting article: Nine Tips for Designing Rich Internet Applications.

Here’s a synopsis:

  1. Make it directly interactive
  2. Make it inviting
  3. Use lightweight, in-context popups instead of page transitions where possible
  4. Use real-estate creatively
  5. Cross page boundaries reluctantly
  6. Create a light footprint
  7. Think of your interactions as storyboards
  8. Communicate transitions
  9. Think in objects

Most of this we’ve heard before, but I like lists 🙂
