Let the device itself help you Can your app look at the regional settings on the device, for example as described in Apple's developer library? If so, you could then: Use the appropriate unit of measure for that region. If your app has a section for user preferences, bury the ml/oz setting for occasional users who want it. Also, be sure to log the ...

If it were me I would pop up a little notification like this, stating the issue and that they should connect to the internet. This can then be dismissed and the user can view old content. Then once they dismiss that, display a little bar like Facebook's at the top of the app letting them know they are still not connected in case they try to connect but it ...

Medium have gone for the no password route and it's certainly doable despite what some might say. It's controversial but essentially what they do is shift the security focus over to the email provider and send you a link/email each time you log in so you can see something unusual.

My thought is, try implementing a way to have a swipe from the right to the left of the screen go from Basic to Advanced. It lets more advanced users know it's there without having them go into the Settings app, toggle a switch, quit out of your app, and relaunch to see the Advanced control set. Do it similar to how SnapChat's "chat" system works; in order ...

The second idea you propose makes the most sense out of the two. Since the user is warned of the udpate and asked to choose between taking action or resuming to the current task, it does not seem damaging to position directly into the new task. Don't forget that quality animation are required for the user to keep a sense of hierarchy and positioning while ...

Two websites that come to mind are Messenger.com by Facebook and Quip.com. Both of these have been designed around iOS paradigms throughout their environments. Pro: the user is already familiar how the product looks in other environments, so it's easy to get along. Con: user would be confused if you product is not mobile-first and so will have to learn ...
