Regarding the skeuomorphic versions of them used in mobile apps they seem to be referred to as spinners.

In aviation this is called a "trim tab" or a "trim wheel": In this context, it is used to adjust control surfaces (commonly the elevator), so that the "hands-off" pitch of the aircraft is maintained at the angle the pilot wants. Another, probably more universally familiar context, are classic hand-held transistor radios: On a hunch, I searched for ...

With angular there are lot of options. One of it is Ui Sortable Angular library https://github.com/angular-ui/ui-sortable demo @ http://codepen.io/thgreasi/pen/olDJi You could use this as the right side list

You could use a one-line textbox with suggestions, very similar to StackExchange's Tag editor: elements are separated by comma, starting to type will show a list of matches. I would add a "edit..." button that pops up a modal editor (using the majority of screen estate) for this field. This could basically be the two lists side by side, as in your ...

I understand that the user may have reasons for manually sorting a list. However, it seems that some use cases (including the one with hundreds of items) may benefit from auto-sorting options. Sort options could be on the left hand list, to use prior to choosing a subset of selected items on the right hand list, to use after choosing a subset This ...

Traditionally: |◀◀ means: Skip to the start or previous file/track. Press it once to go to the beginning of the current item, press it twice to go go the previous item. ◀◀ means: Rewind. So why the vertical bar? Back in the days on tape, both Skip and Rewind would activate the same physical mechanism (moving the tape backwards). ◀◀ would continue ...

Taking into consideration that the "Photoshop" of the common man, MS Word, uses your first example then I would highly recommend just sticking with it. There will be a far smaller learning curve. Yes, as a professional I understand that I can do everything I need with just one resize handle but I would guess that the average person is going to have a panic ...

It’s a good thing to have needed controls nearby. It’s also a good thing to have controls always in the same place. Your colleagues are probably right about the resize handle. Although mono-directional resize works well for a text edit box like the one I’m typing in now, it usually makes sense to choose which edge or corner remains unchanged – i.e. the ...

I like the out of the box thinking. But established convention is often your friend in ux. Having those handle bars in all corners can quickly become intrusive if multiple objects are selected. Toolbar still is your best bet because there is tremendous benefit in having it in one fixed place from productivity perspective. You can and should hide the ...

I'm a relatively recent Windows transplant (bought my first Mac in April). For me the Plus button translated to "Maximize" (I never worked with an app that broke that concept for me like others have mentioned). But what is Maximize, the idea is to take up a full screen. Once you've taken up the full screen, you can't readily work with other windows on the ...

As a Windows transplant I always hated the 3 buttons that OS X offers on windows. Close is pointless when it doesn't actually close the application, only the window. Minimize is fine. And the previous zoom feature was just a complete waste...who needs to make the screen grow slightly, or increase in size only vertically? That's a pain in the ass. Hell, ...

It was wise to group all of the standard OS GUI window resize buttons, although the Miniplayer button in iTunes is still on the right-hand side, but neither the traffic light color scheme (which was kept from previous versions) nor the complete replacement seem very intuitive. Full Screen mode makes sense for some applications, others should have Best Fit ...
