I’ve been trying to decide whether an iOS «Done» button would be more suitably placed at
the top-left or top-right corner of the screen when it’s the only button in the navigation bar
and used to close the current view.
Most apps tend to place the «Done» button on the right in this situation. Popular apps such
as YouTube and Facebook, however, have also trained users to tap a «Done» button on the
left to dismiss videos or photos (although in both of these cases, they are accompanied by
another button on the right-hand side).
I think a good argument can be made for placing the «Done» button on the left when it’s
being used to dismiss a view, since in these cases it’s effectively acting as a «Back»,
«Close», or «Cancel» button.
With every great iOS applications comes a great interface that’s been

designing a beautiful, unique and functional interface for your iOS
application. Good luck and enjoy!
