Have you thought about whether there is a preference for weekends / week days in the selection and highlight vs grey out the sections that are less important? Concept 1 I think just a simple Next / Previous with a hidden calendar that can expand beneath it should work. As per the comments here's a modified version, showing today: There is no other ...

Stick to conventions and consistency This is really simple: if user is charged on day 5 of the month, he should be charged on day 5 next month. Most users plan in anticipation and they know that every fifth day of the month they will be charged for a service. Otherwise, see what would happen January 5 February 4 March 5 April 4 May 4 June 3 July 3 ...

You don't need to over think this. Unless there are regulatory constraints it can be whatever you want it to be and your users will take it as corporate policy. (By the way is there existing corporate policy relating to the definition of a month in other areas? If so leverage those decisions.) If you want to be thorough, and have the time and resources, you ...

You can tell better but since you mentioned that 90% time the dates will be within next 10 days - I am assuming that the user pretty much starts off with a date in mind, rather than thinking which date to pick. So in essence he/she is clear with the date (which is approaching soon), and just needs to select what is in mind. With that assumption, check the ...

Without knowing the full context of your question, I would start off with the lowest common denominator and expand out from there to a maximum of two levels. What I mean could be expressed by the following rules or formulas: w days late (where w = 1 to 6) x weeks, w days late (where x = 1 to 3, w = 1 to 6) y months, x weeks late (where y = 1 to 11, x = 1 ...

I'm not aware of any studies for this but I would say there are a couple of possible answers. If you're displaying time in 12hour format (i.e. 10:00AM and 10:00PM) then you could easily display hours below 10 as a single digit. On the other hand, if you're displaying time in a 24hour format (i.e. 10:00 and 22:00) then you're more likely to find that a ...

Visually, it'd be more appealing to see if there is a leading zero before a single digit number. The digital numbering system 'naturally' goes with this style, and it feels like there'd be more symmetric perfection when sets of two digits are chained together (Image1) instead of a 1-2-2 pattern (Image2). Image1 Image2 Symmetry, familiarity & ...

Why not use the default/existing pattern of iOS? They are all single digit below 10; with this the user doesn't see anything different than what the system itself shows to him/her. Which also reduces user's cognitive load. On the other hand. How many iOS users change their default time settings, if at all there is an option to do that? I'm sure they will ...
