Design guru Tommy Lewis wants your apps to look their best. He emphasizes that attractive apps stand out from the rest, so a focus on design is a must. He describes a "visual" way of thinking, covering what to expect during the design phases of your development and what goals to work towards. Last but not least, he covers design principles that you should think about as you design your apps: authentically digital, more with less, pride in craftsmanship, fast and fluid, and win as one.
