I'm implementing an option in one of my iPhone apps that would put one of my existing controllers into a new mode of operation. Instead of tapping on icons to add events within the app, the controller would now edit the icons themselves, so the user can change their border colors and titles.
This is an optional feature that I would like to explain to the user. I plan on doing the following:
- Making the icons shake, like iPhone home screen
- Displaying a "Would you like to continue" dialog each time the user returns to the screen, until the user cancels.
I'm thinking of how I can word this dialog to make it clearer to the user that the app is still in edit mode and am wandering what should I do with the button titles of the alert dialog. I'm struggling with:
- the wording of the dialog title
- last sentence in the attached screenshot
- Button titles that respond to the question
I can ask a question in the form of "Would you like to stop editing now?" and have YES/NO answers
Or I can keep the dialog in the form of Would you like to [Action verb] with options of [Action Verb]/Cancel
Which approach is more user friendly and is better/quicker understood by iPhone users?
What should the title say for a dialog like this one?
Thank you for your input!
