This paper sketches the qualitative empirical research method of Usability test-ing, and applies it. It is engaged with DIN standards, laws and guidelines con-cerned with the theme »Usability in Mobile Internet«. Using a scheme based on these basic principles, three epaper Apps running on a third generation ipad were compared for their usability. The main focus of attention is the navigation: which of the tested concepts do offer the simplest logical and most intuitive solution for the end user?
