Apple‘s design goal is to create holistic and consistent experiences. Apple focuses exclusively on devices and services that they can control. In fact, this control actually has likely increased as Walt Mossbergwrites about WWDC 2014 on re/code.
Customers are being enticed more and more to stay within the Apple ecosystem (ideally with more iDevices down the road). However, TouchID will make this holistic experience even more convenient, stickier if you like.
We’ve teamed up with API Usability Testing to offer you usability reviews for different APIs. API Usability Testing offer remote API usability testing where tests are performed by a broad range of software developers who have different experience and qualifications.
