Using Touch Targets

Ensure that your touch targets are large enough to meet current guidelines

Touch Targets in Stark lets you inspect your designs and ensure both that your touch target sizes are large enough for users to easily activate them and that they meet the latest width and height guidelines for web mobile, iOS, and Android. Because most software is viewed on iOS and Android applications, as well as web mobile, meeting the standard for these 3 platforms is key.

To use Touch Targets in your design tool, go to Plugins and choose Stark > Touch Targets.

Select any button or design element in your file that you would like to check. With precise pixel measurements, Stark will display the touch target, and indicate if passes. If your touch target doesn’t pass, you can rectify it by jumping into your design tool and make the necessary changes.
