I decided to check the experts (FedEx) and they eliminate the first three fields right out of the gate, but just for their rate quote. Their sign up form is more like the international form above, but with one required address filed and a second not required. Countries with a postal code especially US 9 digit codes shouldn't even need all those address ...

Everything looks click-able on a mobile device :-P What I don't understand, is your desire to drag the user into every corer of your app. As I see it, the graphs will give the (novice) user sufficient information. I'm pretty sure that more advanced users would tap the label or the graph if they wanted to read more about the details. But I'm not sure, ...

I think that hints are the worse possible solution. It's like putting "Pull" on a door handle. You have several solutions. I would recommend having the phrase "clickable graphs" or "after having clicked the graph" interspersed in the copy; or instead of titleing the graph "XXX Graph" call it the "XXX [Clickable |Interactive | appropriate wod] Graph"

Sorting left to right, then down to the next row, is typically the convention. I see two main reasons for this: Content is usually restricted by width, but it may expand down, requiring scrolling. A vertical-first sort would require repeated scrolling down and up to see the content in order. Left-to-right and then down is the way text is presented. This ...

The main problem seems to be the amount of buttons not the kind of their appearance. The goal is, that your user finds the right button fast. A visual hint would help, but if the icons ar not self-explanatory, the users would have to learn their meaning which only helps if they use this form often. Anyway, each time the user has to scan all buttons to find ...

There is no rhyme or reason as to the layout here. Consider grouping your buttons into logical groupings, perhaps emphasizing some over others based on priority of use.

It might be best to try an alternative layout for the buttons rather than icons as knowing what an icon means outside of the staple well known ones, for things like Play, Pause, Save, Delete etc. is not always easy. It might be more worthwhile spending time on a good translator and using something like i18n for internationalisation.

If all the buttons are required to be shown show them as a drop down menu with actions(like the hamburger icon and the drop down using it) and if not change the buttons contextually(which is easy with the basic JS)

You rightly call the process as user onboarding. There are many ways to do onboarding where tool-tips or balloon-tips are most common for web applications or desktop applications. In contrast, coach marks are used in Mobile devices. Whitney Hess defines it as: Onboarding is the process by which you can help users overcome the cold-start problem a >blank ...

In the article "The origins of the use of [x] in UI design" you can read: The use of [x] for close and [o] for open could come from the Japanese symbols batsu and maru. Batsu (x) is the symbol for incorrect, and can represent false, bad, wrong or attack, while maru (o) means correct, true, good, whole, or something precious. Batsu and maru are ...

By "process" I assume you mean screens/pages that require the user to fill in information? The "Getting Started" setup process for the OS itself is probably as native as you could get (I'm not sure how WP7's setup process is, as that's what you tagged, but WP8 should be what you're looking for). I don't recall it having an indicator, though. When you upgrade ...

As thousandtyone and ECM mentioned, many tag controls, like the one on this site, simply allow the adding of a new tag unless you've picked one from the suggestions. I'm particularly fond of way Jira handles it (slightly more usable than the SE way because it says '(New label)':

The answer was staring right back at you when you were typing the question and tagging it :). Did you check out the stack exchange tag question screen? It's slick because it lets you select multiple tags by typing and clicking. It also lets you add a tag without leaving the screen.

Gmail handles this in a very straight forward way. When you select a message and ask to tag it, you are presented with a list of all existing tags: If you select the "Create new" option you get a popup: But if you just start typing in a label into the search that does not exist, you get the option to create it without the popup: This last method is ...

Users are not just the (for lack of a better term) end-user of the system. There are many other users involved: developers, business, as well as end-users. Talk to end-users about the existing product, discover their pain points, needs and goals. Use this information as your leverage. Prototyping can help quickly vet ideas outside of the dev cycle. Prove ...

If you can get access to people, I'd spend an afternoon chatting to users to understand what the system is suppose to do.

First, you are not causing any problems, you're doing the best you can with what you have and asking for help shows you have a good head on your shoulders. So I won't sugar coat any of my answers otherwise I don't believe I'd be doing you any justice. First, throw out the term agile. I've been in the environment you are in and they call it agile because ...

I think the industry has reached a point where UI/UX design needs to be done in a way that is both holistic and also systematic. By this I mean that companies looking to develop new products and services in the digital channel needs to invest time and effort in a design framework or a similar structure that allows you to combine the visual, content and ...

On Agile From the various Agile-related concepts, I'd like to highlight two: It meant to combat requirements volatility (frequently evolving or changing requirements or their priority). It increases time to market. Agile, when used in the right context (and followed by the word), is nothing short of magic. The cost of changes within a properly managed ...

The first option is better because it makes very clear that there is a very clear developer option that the user can see. Furthermore, when a user activates the developer option, they most certainly want to use it. Further, with the big button to switch between the two modes, the user can effortlessly switch between the two modes without going through the ...

You should also check out the site UI Patters. You might find inspirations that would spark you with ideas of what you could do, but also (and sometimes more importantly) what not to do :) You could also check out Dribble for inspiration. Finally, you should read this post about "The Laws of Sh!&^y Dashboards" ... it's a great read Also, I don't ...

To answer your questions first: the "Add New" button needs to be immediately visible, regardless of the user's screen size or the list's length. That being said, at the top of the list seems to be the most logical (or KISS) choice. What I'd argue is equally important is to make that button really stand out (using color, size, whitespace...). As for the ...
