This paper is mainly about people’s experiences of using touchscreens. Information from previous writers’ reports and papers were firstly selected and then used in this thesis. Questions about whether people would like to use touchscreens, why they would or would not like to use touchscreens, the frequency of making mistakes for respondents and the time the respondents think they need to learn to use touchscreens as well as a comparison between old techniques and touchscreens were listed in the questionnaire. After getting information from previous researchers’ reports and questionnaires, we got the results that respondents of younger ages are more likely to try touchscreens as their “input mode” and show more interesting to the entertainment applications. What’s more, younger respondents are more confident in making fewer mistakes. People of older ages are more confident in spending less time in learning how to use touchscreens. Moreover, it is also interesting to get reflection that many respondents complained the difficulties in getting used to the touchscreens and typing correctly on the icons of the touchscreens a lot when participated in this survey.
