Abstract

Touchscreens utilize a menu-based interface. Menu-based interfaces are an easy and efficient practice that considers the users' physical and cognitive characteristics. However, the users' behavioral characteristics using touchscreens is quite different from that required in a typical desktop environment. Hence, in this study, an efficient menu-based interface for touchscreens was investigated. It considered different users' physical and cognitive characteristics in a touchscreen environment. A dynamic menu layout was found to be more efficient in both physical and cognitive aspects compared to static menu layouts. Additionally, the columnar structure in menus did not influence users' task-performance in touchscreen interfaces.
