The UI you have presented is not consistent either. It has visual consistency. But the interaction is not consistent. When a user adds a form, it is added below the dropdown, but when a new field is added, it is done above it. This affects consistency as well. The user has to get used to one of this pattern (either adding above or below). Otherwise, it ...

Consistency + heirarchy = mo betta There's nothing wrong with consistency among controls. I think the problem you're sensing is hierarchy. In your example, adding a field (the low-level item) is more prominent than added a form (the high-level item). The controls are identical, but the ground contrast is greater within the form edit module. With a few ...

The ideal answer is "test both" and see which works better for your users. Without testing, if you have to make a choice, clarity always trumps consistency. Focusing on your specific answer, I would suggest a different UX pattern for adding fields to make it even more different than adding a form. For example, eliminating the dropdown completely, and ...

https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/UIKitUICatalog/UIDatePicker.html http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/controls/pickers.html They are just called date pickers in iOS guidelines. Android generally terms them Pickers for both date and time. These are just customizations of already existing ...

It's known as picker or spinner. First example looks like a custom designed one, but it can be done with this tutorial, your second example is the native iOS6 picker (now it has changed to a flat look)

In my mind UX starts at the idea stage. Does this product improve the lives of potential users/customers? If so, then it's a project I'm interested in undertaking. If not, then the question very quickly becomes: If this product can be very profitable, how can I make it improve the lives of potential users/customers? Frankly the two go hand in ...

Gmail has a very nice hybrid solution for this, that adds some more powerful options: In Gmail, the checkbox itself is clickable and behaves like a normal checkbox header, and any click on the button outside the checkbox opens the dropdown menu. Even though the button isn't really aligned with the column, it still feels like its header. Probably ...

Here is one approach favored by my End Users, have an underlined option stating 'Clear' when the field already has an icon within (calendar in my example). Having an X clear button within the edit field is good, but coloring it red might mean error after the User types in a text. The common theme across apps/web is to use a lighter grey/grey colored X ...

This example tested well with all types of users It helps if you try it out yourself by clicking the above link but here are the two things that make the X more intuitive and discoverable as a clear button... Only show the X if there is something to clear Place the X inside the input instead of next to it

You'll find fields with a little "clear" button in them all over the web. Like this:

I would say it depends on the scope. For a single text field you could simply use an x such as the one provided by Font Awesome (here) If you are clearing all information from the form it'd be better to use a button that has a different color to the submission button. For instance if the submission button is the color green, a good differentiating color ...

Different website types require different interfaces, so there's no "one pattern fits all". However, it's easy enough to find resources for particular parts of a website, such as input (form), menues, navigation bars, user-generated content etc. A good place to start (though it's a bit "popular science") is: http://ui-patterns.com/ On a more scientific ...

Working on something similar, it may be more complicated than it seems to add multiple fieldsets with an auto-append way I would like to hear your opinions about the following issues: In the initial state should the user see that it is possible to add multiple fieldsets? The new line added should appear just when the user starts to type in the first field ...

Consider separating out the number entry from the units

Can I ask why you believe using tags for information storage conflicts with 'a more structured and minimalist view about information architecture'? I think there's a good discussion in that alone. Forcing a user to create tags for information storage means it will always be relevant to them and there won't be additional/excess ways of organising their data. ...

As Golden Krishna says bes tinterface is no interface. So ask the user the localisation of the meeting and ask him the time of this meeting. Take into account or ask him if it is local time. Ask from where he comes and specifies him automatically the time in two formats its real localisation and the time of the localisation meeting with a table with all ...

I have also observed that many UIs are confined to some controls to enter, edit, or select some input, plus Save. Is that bad? The General User Task I think the truth is that many user tasks involve changing a few object attributes, and that’s about it. Much of what we do with computers is basically “keeping records.” Most of our apps are literally or ...

Here's my suggestion: download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups Basically you have a list with everything and an inline label to show the movies which actually got the awards.

The style of UX you are describing is one embraced by companies like Google and Apple, and the objective is to hide complexity. Basically, the design objective is to present a calmer and clearer interface by hiding less common functions into dropdowns, so the user is presented with fewer choices. Personally I'm not a fan of this trend, especially when it ...

I like the 9gag solution when a message appears on top of the screen in case there are any new posts. You can auto scroll up and refresh the list by clicking on it. Don't know if Twitter has done that yet.

Any given twitter stream could go through pages and pages, (and hundreds of MBs) of data if a user left a twitter.com tab open. Generally when you read your twitter feed you can go a long time before you read something you've read before. So purely from a "finding new content" perspective, it's not necessary to automatically load new content.
