There is a method to making an app. Iterative ceremony. Successive refinement not unlike in other crafts. App making as pottery? Place each button atop your bench wheel, sling your mud, refine the reactions on screen to touch, to sound, refine the movement of text, the size of text, the placement of text, typography macro and micro, to hyphenate or not (and if not, why, dear god, why), consider the images, to full-bleed or not to full-bleed, how to dismiss the images?—?a swipe or a tap or a dreadful [×]. Remove curves. Add curves. Gradients, the gradients. All of this surface and function is iterated about again and again. WUT you say? Yes, Yo, this is how apps are made.
