As far as the buttons are concerned, I would suggest something like the attachment. I am not aware of the complete scenario though.

Short answer: No. Long answer: There are a few different ones out there (I only bothered to check 3) and some of them offer more functionality than "find me"; for example iOS also uses that button to switch rotation lock modes, Google also uses it to switch rotation lock as well as tilt angle. - It could be argued that these are different buttons and ...

You're on the right track! It's good as is, but you can make it better. About the language: check out this article on writing. It is a great idea to keep writing/language simple... And remember to ask others' opinion on the writing to see how it comes off to them. You are doing both: The language is clear/direct AND you're asking for feedback, so good job....

There is No particularly accepted icon for users current location. It's moreover depends on which map/technology user uses. I agree with @Andrew Martin, as he showed those three icons for iOS, Bing and Google. My Suggestion: 1. Considering you can target your audience Since it's hard to tell which is more Universal or easily recognized by users in that ...

Presumably it is emphasised as - if the entire interface is converted to French and you can't read any French - then it is impossible to reverse the action !

The border gives the overlay coherence of design. Putting the X on a background like the circular one here means that it will always show up. If you make it semitransparent then you maximise the amount you can see underneath, if what's underneath is important.

Apple does this in several places. Perhaps they're focused on making actions easily reversible everywhere. It doesn't seem like language selection is an exception.

The best example I can think of is Youtube. Though it's not video, but can work really well in the case of image gallery as well. The bottom bar can be used to show the current position in the gallery and allow users to click on either image or the button at bottom right corner to enlarge the image and enter the full-screen gallery view mode.

I think when you are looking at a one-off selection, the size of the button would certainly have some impact on the way a user makes the selection (think about the way home pages or landing pages on websites are designed to draw attention to certain call-to-actions). They often do this by emphasizing the size, colour or styling of these buttons, to both ...

Usually there is one question that I ask while designing such an interface. Does any user action change the state of the control that is currently disabled? If any user actions toggles the state of the control then it makes sense to have those controls visible but in disabled state. If the control will never be enabled then it makes sense to show it as a ...

It's a little strange to have that button there with all that space wasted in the most important area of the screen (close to the fingers); Having only one button will always make the user go for 2 clicks (3 clicks with the selection of a playlist) for any action and in time one of the 2 actions will get the most usage (track that) and will become ...

Next to the "Add/+" button, you can have /(downarrow) selector which could either accordian-open a drop-down menu or pop-open a modal box which would allow setting indivual on-the-fly user-action preferences. (Add/Delete Behavior Settings) Similar to how myfonts.com handles the behavior selections for viewing overview samples.: The Behavior Settings ...

You could save clicks and effort by simply removing the radio buttons. Why don't you simply let the user click on the buttons on the right (e.g. "Cliente") to open a modal? Once that is filled out you can display a little checkmark image right of the button. To indicate the opening of a modal on button click you should consider changing the text to "...

Generally speaking Apple is the opposite of Windows. The reasons for this go back a long way, and it's Windows that didn't think about it, they simply wanted to do it the opposite to the Mac. I say this because it's useful to understand that some initial thought went into the order of affirming an action, or escaping from it. Apple's designers decided we ...

This notification shows accesses that will be granted. It is security important. So I think negative action is highlighted to ensure that user makes his choise after looking at permissions. And maybe other reason is that it also could be pressed by keyboard, accidentally, with Enter key. In this case nothing wrong will happen, app with dangerous ...

It's always challenging to do navigation for mobile. I go through this little cheat sheet to freshen up for the menu navigation possibilities. Regarding your problem, the solution you've reached sounds good. But, it's one thing to describe it and an entirely different thing to see it. It makes sense as you describe it, but that's different from making ...

I personally understand the logic of this double-button and I think I would get the idea, but it all depends on the perception of every user. I see this solution as a purposeful ambiguity, which is meant to simplify the design. If it's bound to lead to confusion or not, I can't say, unless I take a look on the overall design of that page. I see two options: ...

Option A is better, but I also like the idea of being able to hover over a table cell and being able to see the 'edit' or 'delete' icons! Option A is better because you have these two buttons clustered through the law of proximity. The idea of placing them adjacently is better because they have a similar purpose (to alter) and thus reduce the users ...

Even if there was no usability relevance in it, the external on/off WiFi button falls in the realm of psychological comfort and still contributes to improving the user experience. No matter how abstract technology gets, people will always be tactile beings. We need to touch and feel the surroundings, so that they become real in our mind. Especially with ...
