I'm more relating to ease of use and friendliness of an API, where 
learners don't need to research much of how to use it, learning new 
concepts.
Basically, simply getting data from properties is easier than 
allocating extra object and getting readings to that object every time
 data is required. This makes usability somewhat less simple.
