As a phone is an "smart" device I would expect that there would be a better UX than mapping a static paper/digital map into phone format. I would approach design from a goal driven point of view e.g. A fire escape plan has key information if there is fire, but this information is just ancillary. The goal is to get out of building safely and as quickly as ...

Isn't this the perfect thing you can test for? Make some wireframes and test. Make some higher fidelity prototypes and test again. This is not something you have to guess about, nor does it make sense to ask others to guess for you. On a side note - if you are testing for nude/not nude then I think you can go a lot smaller than 240x240. I just went to ...

Proximity implies relation, make sure the elements look related. If not, the meaning could be confusing, appear amateurish or like a mistake. An illustration in a banner won't have the same purpose as a 14px icon in a menu. It seems the '317Jfez.png' icons are tough to read, due to low contrast and colors might not work well for anyone with colorblindness. ...

Not really, though it depends on the icon set. Your icon set can include both round and square icons, but the first set is 3/5 round and 2/5 standard icons, while the second set is 5/5 icons (with one that just happens to be a perfectly round icon). Therefore, your second set looks more like a proper set. However, there are no specific rules that state you ...

I would separate the price of the item from the charitable donation. Make the item cost £18, then have a control that allows the user to select a donation amount. The reasons I see are: It highlights the donation more. Users will like having the amount they are donating clearly highlighted. It may encourage more generosity. This is a bit speculative ...

Our brains have evolved specifically to process movement in 3D space - being able to spot the sabre toothed tiger leaping at you would be the difference between being around to pass on your genes rather than becoming lunch. This book by Gibson is worth a read: The Ecological Approach To Visual Perception This is a book about how we see: the environment ...

Forgive me if I've missed the point of your question, it is a little confusing. Your brain is not doing matrix math to draw the world. The things you mention are components, remnants or artifacts of 3D computer graphics and the way computers use numbers to operate. I think our brains work differently in that we don't need to maintain a list of vertices that ...

I am not sure you are going to find a optimal time it would take for a person to react to a visual stimuli and find content as there are multiple factors here The attention span of the user The relative speed of the user in scanning the content to find the content he is looking for The position of the users mouse or finger or pointing or interaction ...

You're observing the tension between usability, cost, form factors, and standards. Cost dictates things like part count -- a single LED is cheaper than two, a tri-color LED is cheaper than a 7-segment display, a display screen is more expensive still. Form factor determines how big the UI can physically be, limiting space for components like memory and ...

(I'm assuming you're asking about a solely greyscale theme here as that's what you've posted.) The third one is horrible. The bold background clamors for your attention in your peripheral view. The second looks like one of the overly subtle "steel" themes that Apple imposed on us in their recent OSes where you can't tell what's selected vs. what's not. ...

Answering the question: 1) #1 is too loose definitely, no real visual difference between each section. 2) #3 gives more a sensation of "falling" visually in the middle of the page, it can be good for some people, but not for everyone. Some people could feel it a little enclosed. So, between #2 and #3, I wouldn't be 100% sure. Now, my suggestions: ...

You do need to show the title so that the user is aware of which article or book he is reading. The kindle app shows the title of the book and on tap shows additional options The ibooks app by default shows the title of the book and also the options available My suggestion would be to use the space occupied by the app name to show the title of the ...

My suggestion would be to go for the third option since it helps establish the contrast for the writing area and helps the user focus on the content he is writing. The issue I have with #1 is that the writing section is the same color as the content on the left hand side and the lack of contrast makes it hard for the user to differentiate between the ...

Maybe you can try something as illustrated, download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups Put lists as tabs Provide buttons on list items for sorting and moving

I would suggest a region that swells at the bottom of the screen upon selecting a list item. Further I would suggest combining this with Dirk's answer: In a portrait orientation on a phone or tablet, you can show one list at a time but allow the user to drag near the edges to drag objects between lists, or otherwise swipe between lists like pages. Upon ...

You can try http://www.scifiinterfaces.com/ and the book Make It So which have critiques of TV and movie interfaces from diegetic and non-diegetic stand points (usefulness to the characters versus the viewers). I've also read good interviews and critiques with the people who make the interfaces over at http://www.inventinginteractive.com/

I design interfaces like this a lot. The tried and true practice has always been to copy ones you like, and then to start being original using your 'copy' as a basis. You are trying to speak in an established vocabulary of imaginary interfaces of the future, so while you want to be original and creative, you need to 'speak' the already established language. ...

If this were me then I would follow the action plan below: Assuming you have their email, inform users via email that the feature will temporarily be going away Make sure to include a start date at minimum and an end date if possible Wherever this feature is, make sure to place a noticeable banner stating that the feature will temporarily be unavailable ...
