A great way to make people perceive loading as "quick" is to show dummy wireframes, like placeholders. It gives the user a feeling of progress. When the dummy wireframe is loaded (which takes less than 100 milliseconds), it feels like the content will be added to that very soon. Dummy loading or loading icon? A loading icon loops and doesn't show ...

It essentially depends on the type of Application you're developing. If it's a bot that gets things done and replies from time to time according to your query, I think the Messenger app is the better platform to choose. I think the days of people using bots on a Website are over since people are mostly mobile these days. Instead of having one to open the ...

You see by taking the screenshot you already started creating the part of the story you want to express to your users So in the context of englishreview.net you want to send a notification to the user when there is a reply from the professional/expert reader. The When Since, and correct me if I am wrong, you cannot force enable notifications the first ...

The natural time to ask that seems to be when they get notifications: You just got an expert response. [ ] Don't show these notifications. Keep it in subsequent notifications too, so they can turn off the notifications after they get a few of them and get sick of them. This option probably belongs in their user account as well.

ISO9241-11 defines usability as: "The extent to which a product can be used by specified users to achieve specified goals with effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction in a specified context of use." You will note that the word simplification is not mentioned at all in this definition. Usability is about: Effectiveness - can users complete tasks, ...

One way I'm thinking is using the link icon along with a title: Linked to XYZ, and when user clicks/hovers on it; show more details of the linking in a popup, callout, or new page.

1) Learn how to anticipate the user flow by interviewing some of your target users and maybe running a card sort exercise with them. Set the key points of the journey down on individual cards and ask your target users to arrange them into an order that makes the most sense for them. 2) Start by duplicating the interface from something similar. Use any ...

When you can't think of a noun for an anchor or headline, think of a verb If you can't quite think of a name for the content on the linked page, you can instead try thinking of the action that users would do theres, just as the "registration page" may say "Register" or "Join." In this case, something like "Make connections" or "Expand your network"? ...

Why not go with something more positive such as Available. That way it wont have any unwanted connotations and users may be more interested in requesting a connection.

One thing these cultures have in common is a top-down organization of writing. When a line breaks, both cultures continue writing below what was just written. You could lean on this in your designs. The Flipboard app uses "pages" that flip up and down rather than left and right. I'd start with something along those lines. Maybe new screens slide up from ...

Generally, all ltr interactions, layouts etc. should be be mirrored in the rtl counterpart - anything that gets its position based on eye-flow should be reversed to accommodate a rtl pattern. On the other hand swipe gestures for complete/delete etc. should follow device norms - although they have a direction associated with them, it's not necessarily ...

The simplest solution would be to contact some network engineers and find out what screen sizes they are using. I imagine you'll get a wide range of answers but that a few of them will be more popular than others. Weed out the extremes and you should be able to use these results to find the (sensible) minimum screen size.

And Apple uses white background for their videos on website. While using light background colors, make sure you apply shadows to the player so the visual content stands out. Take a loot at the Video Player UX on Pinterest Here are some aspects of dark color

Well the option is not easy see it. Maybe an better approach will be have an compact menu with some simple actions, so the user could enter to an process: start action -> configure -> done.

I agree there needs to be a more visual indication of the change. Perhaps that component breaks out of the bottom bar to draw extra attention to it. Something like this: An additional improvement would be to make the transition to the active state animated, or have the yellow bar pulse. Once the changes have been applied it would return to normal.

It's small and dark. Instead, why don't you change the background colour/color of the "changes" label, that would effective hightlight it.

In your UX approach, users have to be your top priority. An Android user will have different habits to an iOS user and vice versa. You are talking about a "feel". I understand this to mean a graphic feel, and the answer is YES: keep the "graphic feel" common between platforms. If you're talking about interaction design (navigation, action buttons, ...

It depends on how the application is going to be used. The point here is to maintain a consistent experience for the user. If the user is only going to be working with one platform then you need to be consistent with the patterns generally used by that platform. I found myself working on a hybrid application the other day - part of the app was native and ...

There are some established design patterns and conventions you can refer to, but they should just be references. Ultimately, your users goals and context should dictate these decisions. Context of use is everything; the way a user approaches your system to complete their tasks will dictate where you will need to place elements on the page. Consider forming a ...

From the the limited information I have I can only provide limited advice. I am leaning towards mockup A because it requires less clicks and allows the user to remain on one screen rather than be focused into another modal window. I would recommend having an auotsave feature regardless so that if the agent has an interruption he can go back and continue his ...

Two reasons. First, Keeping the background dark allows you to focus on what's important--the video. Second, a bright background causes your eye to close down making other elements in view appear darker, thus making the video more difficult to watch and see the details; particularly in dark areas.

A very good question and I would say that you are very keen about all the small details used in design. Here is the best example I think I can give, Take the Sky as background and Moon and stars as video, Moon is sometimes visible in day but stars are not. Even though the moon is visible, it's not so pleasant as much as it's in night. I would say a video ...

Otherwise, you could just have a plain delete button, and when pressed it's internal text changes to "ARE YOU SURE?".The color could be made darker to give the idea of taking a layer off it.

Yes! The buttons have to be close to each other and vertically center aligned. And move the settings icon to header. Here's a quick edit - EDIT: Also the 'What would you like to do' text should behave as a title in the page, so, keep it above the buttons in a little large font.

To me the main function of your form is to create or update a contact. So I'd suggest renaming it to: Create / update a contact. Then move the drop-down with existing contacts and the button to create a new contact to the top, side-by-side: [ existing contacts drop-down ] [ + new contact ] This makes the purpose of the modal much clearer. Don't show the ...

A few points: 1) Make sure there is a default state so that if a user type is not manually selected it doesn't trigger a fault with the back-end, is saved into a findable default place/category/type, and the info is not lost completely. 2) What is the most vital information to capture? As this is titled "Add a contact" I suspect it's the user type and user ...

I think that weekly total sales also be different from each other. In order to show overall performance, two different interconnected bar-chart can be a good solution for your problem.

Pie charts are not good when you have to compare. Also, they have a limit of how many values to represent. I would recommend a horizontal bar chart. Comparisons are much more easy and you can have many values. Also, the names of the employees are much more easy to read. Keep the bar chart simple : Do not add grid-lines. X-axis values are not needed. Place ...

Here I attach 2 options to display the information which you want. This is my idea and this is wire-frame only so don't consider it as design. I commented necessary information so please read it carefully. I hope you will have clear idea that what I am trying to explain. Images shown below are just for the example purpose. These are the screens :

Welcome to UXSE. This is a good approch. But I have something different. Added one new feature hope you like it. Refer image:

An idea: With so many potential variables, a nice feature might be to provide "templates" for the most commonly needed rules so a user doesn't always have to start from scratch. How much of the work can you do for them ahead of time? The user could modify, duplicate these preexisting samples to more easily customize a rule to do just what they wanted. ...

I don't believe there is a specific design pattern for your exact example. But you want to combine a Tunnel with the Wizard. You might also consider the Good Defaults pattern if you feel there is need to influence the decision of the user.
