It's hard to analyze the full interaction because the clip doesn't show how the selector showed up (did it slide in? load with the page? appear after user clicked on the dropdown control at the top?) Based on the very limited clip: The page locks in the user's attention. The user is focused on the top where you have the Please select control and ...

This isn't necessarily your responsibility. This is Jony Ive's responsibility now. You're using a native element and we can really only assume that the person is somewhat familiar with the device they are using. Do you know if the person performing the task regularly uses an iPhone? Were they testing on an actual iPhone or an emulator? About the only ...

Based off of the clip, I would suggest closing the selector if it is open and the user clicks again. In doing this, it would give your users some kind of visual feedback. This would lead them to explore and see what changes, which would then help them notice the iOS selector at the bottom of the screen.

I will go for something like this: Where navigation is on a top level navigation (to either exit or go to notifications) and a bottom level for item-related actions (like, play, share, hide). If the Notifications are related to an especific item, i will suggest to just post it below the the item description.

Side bar with a home option. Reason: when user goes through hierarchical menus he knows what he's doing and he would need to go back in most cases. So having home button anywhere on screen all the time is bad idea as it occupies some unnecessary space. Only when he finds himself wrong he needs a home which he can open the side bar and tap the option.

Overall, it seems that it was a design choice by Jony Ive and his design team, however it does seem to be a very hot button topic and a confusing one at that. As you can see below, they do provide some kind of feedback, however it blends in with the other keys making it hard to understand what is happening. The folks over at Future Workshops did a quick ...

I would say that Apple was going for consistency across all languages with this change by making active keys black with white background which has the highest contrast (true if you hold the backspace down as well though it's hard to see because your finger is on it) The more user friendly solution is simple. Show lowercase letters on the keys when the ...

I checked every app on my phone and didn't see anything other than dropdowns. I think you're on the right track with sliders, actually. I put an idea together that I thought could work. I'm sure something like this exists “out there” somewhere, but I haven't seen it. I think the goal is one finger gesture for “went to sleep”, one for “woke up” and one to ...

Consider yourself to be a very rich man. So rich that there's a fridge attendant in your house whose only role is to open and close the fridge: You come home one day and approach the fridge, saying loudly "Oh, I'm starving". The attendant picks the cue and opens the fridge. At this point you may pick something from inside. Regardless, you perform an ...

In most cases, dismissing the modal keyboard on a non-modal (or "click outside") tap provides a better user experience. Here's why: Slide-in keyboards are very intrusive. They occupy an enormous amount of the screen, even on tablets, and even if the form isn't occluded by the keyboard, user perceive a physical sense of intrusion when the keyboard shows ...
