Usability: Why iPhone is for Admins and Managers?

In my opinion, iPhone could be the best choice for administrators and managers. Why? Because of its fantastic design!

Look: many of managers spend most of their time in meetings. imagine you have forgotten to silent your device and someone calls you and it starts to ring. OK, no problem, you can silent it just with a press of your finger! even, no need to take your hand in your pocket! you can press Silence button from over of your pants! Or you can single click on On/Off button to silent the device or double click to reject the call!

I’ve never seen this action in any other cell phone!

Or if your device is not with you and you can not silent it, the iPhone speakers are not like crazy Sony Ericson or Samsong devices which trouble people when they start to ring! iPhone speakers play in a medium tone, neither low not loud, and it is what is expected form a high-class manager.

These are really helpful, specially for me as Muslim who spends some times in Mosques with his iPhone in his pocket…

Another fantastic hidden behavior I discovered today, is this:

You can add many emails to your Mail Accounts and send email from any of them. iOS 7 monitors your behavior and intelligently learns what to do in your next email sending… for example imagine you have 2 mail accounts: x@gmail.com and y@gmail.com [one for home and another for work]

if you send an email to z@gmail.com with your y@gmail.com account, next time you type or choose z@gmail.com to send a new mail, iOS automatically chooses your y@gmail.com as the sender!! no need to choose yourself! it does that for you…

These examples are part of a hot topic called “Usability”. Your application or device should reach the users to their goal at the minimum amount of time and learn users’ behavior and put them into action...

Update: I wish Gmail add this feature to its Compose window. When we type an email in TO field, FROM field could be automatically chosen from my email accounts based upon my previous actions…
