15 delicious UX micro-interactions or 'clunks' from iPhone apps

The clunk is nothing to do with being clunky.

A clunk is, as defined by Ashley Friedlein, a door clunk, a design detail within the user experience that lends a user satisfaction. It could be called a micro-interaction. The clunk is feedback, it's often skeuomorphic.

NB: I'm aware that my header image is a door closer (designed to avoid the clunk).
