Abstract:

Computer science algorithms can be used to improve user interfaces. Using data structures as a source of design ideas, a new interface was constructed for a cellular telephone handset. Once implemented, a user experiment was conducted which showed that predicted improvements in usability were confirmed with real users doing realistic tasks.

Key words: Cellular handset interaction – Menu design
