Sort of, the word most people to use to describe text is Readability. Readability is the ease with which a written text can be understood by a reader. If a text is easy to read and comprehend it allows a user to spend less time reading it. It also allows the user to incur less cognitive load because it takes less thinking to process the text. So yes, ...

So I finally found a viable solution. It took some tinkering though. I used a Livescribe 3 pen in combination with an iPhone device. The digital pen can send the data in real time to the iPhone, but it has a closed platform so we cannot use the data straight out of the app. What I did was connecting the Livescribe iOS App to Evernote, as it will send auto ...

I highly recommend a new paper by Cockburn et al. "Supporting Novice to Expert Transitions in User Interfaces" ACM Computing Surveys, Vol. 47, No. 2, Article 31, Publication date: November 2014. It reviews a lot of research in four areas of novice-expert transition: "(1) Intramodal improvement concerns the rapidity and magnitude of performance ...

I would definitely keep the day in there as it will make it harder to absorb if it jumps from say '10' to '15'. This would also make it harder if you were looking for a specific date. When the numbers are in order - even if some are empty - it's easy to take mental shortcuts to find the relevant number. It's arguable whether it would make it easier to ...

As I see it, adding a '>' creates a feeling that you will be redirected somewhere else (another view!), you dont really expect a dropdown. I always apply the common sense in this case scenario: When collapsed: "V" When expanded: "A" these are self explanatory

I would really consider asking two different questions because full width/desktop view often has a different purpose or use case to the mobile view. For example, you might want to schedule or plan a whole serious of events on a full width/desktop view, while you might only want to view upcoming events on a mobile view where there is limited viewing space and ...

Idea Convert the current page indicator into the input field. Similar to Adobe Acrobat (see pic) Adobe Acrobat Page Navigation Then distinctively style the page number and prev/next buttons differently to this input field to make the input field stand out as such. Mockup Mockup 2 Use a style for the buttons that differentiates them even more from ...

I think this might work as a solution, not much of reinvention of the wheel must be done if you want to use original command prompts that people are used to. Although I forgot to add "last" "first" around the box I have created. that would make it even easier. Basically you are adding placeholder text to the search box so people know what to type there.

My preference would be to place the icon on the left. But if you need to have it on the right, it would also kind of work I think (but not as well as on the left). When collapsed, it should point to the right ">" When expanded it should point downwards "V" As regards expanded / collapsed state - from my (limited) testing with business users it is more ...

I think the bigger question here is, how long is the checkout experience? When I say that, I mean how long the whole process is: From loading times, to input fields, to even the perception of the process is (if the page is longer than need being, people will walk away). It doesn't matter whether you use single vs multiple pages, but what matters is how ...

You could have a look at how soundcloud allows users to add comments to music tracks. To me it seems quite intuitive and you could draw parallels between it and your problem

When you say signal I am assuming you mean something like a waveform? If that is the case then doing an interface that shows the waveform with sections highlighted that the user can hover over/click on to get more detailed information would be something that makes sense to me as a user.

Are you looking for something like a price range? (via tweakers.net) You can probably find a template or plugin of your liking online somewhere. If you need more than just a single selected range, though, you'll have to implement something more like what Stewart mentioned.

If I were you I would let the user have a little "flip-toggle" that allows them to switch between both sides of the person. In this type of application being able to show both sides may be a necessity. If the user reports an injury directly in the center how would you know if its a sternum or spinal injury? To differentiate sides (even if you dont allow ...

You can write some intriguing labels with technical words under loading screens, progress bars or success messages. This can convey the technical magic in a friendly way. For example "Advanced data parsing in progress", "Putting technology into motion", "Activating thousands lines of code". Reference picture: The Sims game used to have some funny labels ...

It'll be helpful to deconstruct the basis of a good user experience here. The application that you have designed might be your and your team's greatest achievement technically. You might be crunching more data than Facebook's servers and doing a better job at it. You might also have built a better cross-OS, cross, device, real-time synced application better ...

Please don'try to add complexity just for the sake of making the users understand how complex the backend system is. I'd suggest you redefine your goal to get more and more people signingup/using your application that itself would be indication of the successful app and eventually develops like a habit for the users (since you mention its has revolutionary ...

You don't! The point of UX is making things simple and easy for the user. If you think its too empty it's more of a visual design issue. you could add visual elements like infographics or visuals if you think it'll help Look at Google's search page. So simple yet so sophisticated.


7

Don't try to add complexity. I get that you believe the application should look and feel as smart as the backend solution, but adding elements for the sake of adding elements is not the way to go. If the app feels too simple, perhaps you should look into the real value it's bringing to the user. If they can't understand that value, maybe the problem isn't ...

I'd recommend getting rid of zebra striping. It's often considered chart junk more than it's considered helpful. If you need to group rows, do it with a visual divider line: --------------- apples 12 bananas 47 oranges 16 --------------- sausage 3 hamburger 72 --------------- ketchup 7 mustard 9 --------------- ...

You could add a simple border to the bottom of the last row in any given grouping. That way, even if the colors match between groups, there will still be a definitive marker between them.

The business of AV companies is confidence. They sell you on the idea of auto-magic security, but have no actual way to show you that it works that way. Because, of course, it doesn't. So they rely on the a set of design and interaction cues not entirely dissimilar to what a slot-machine maker would do. The overly-designed shell is just part of that ...

I would urge you to always give users the option to opt out. If a user doesn't want to read something they're not going to, forcing them to click on it will only become an annoyance. Think of it like a terms of service agreement. You're forced to read them even though most people don't care whats in it. Even though the developer put in code to make you ...

Some viruses replace AntiVirus software with fake duplicates that look the same way. That takes more effort when the AntiVirus software doesn't simply use the native skin.

Most people barely understand what the Internet is, beyond the "and then a miracle happens" level. Most people think a robot is always an automated mechanical device. Actually, it isn't clear most people get even that far, drpending on what population you're using "people" to represent. May I suggest you refine the question?


9

No. In my experience most people without technical knowledge don't know what an Internet robot is unless you specifically explain it to them. Even though Captchas have been around for years, they fail to explain why Captchas exist. They'll usually just explain that they are to prevent spam or robots, but they don't explain that things like web crawlers and ...

You could go a long way with two simple changes; 1 - reduce the whitespace in the menu area, similar to how it shrinks in the mobile version. One way to do this is to use percentage based measurements for the whitespace. 2 - make the image scale sooner. Right now the product photo starts scaling when the screen hits about 680 pixels width. at 700 pixels ...

You can give search list according to the category selected by the user but in the search field if the user types for a product name there you can suggest products of same name in different category. So the user will get an idea about the product even if they don't know the exact category of the product.

Use Search and Filter Let your main search to be available always to perform a search in all categories. Once user chooses a category from the shop by drop down. Provide him the products which you think what he is looking for according to your analytics. Now allow him to filter on the selected shop by/category. Search Let the search hang there when ever ...
