I did a small User Testing with your icons. Chose 5 tech-savvy almost college aged kids who stay nearby and showed them the icons with the labels hidden. This is what they had to say This is the distribution for each icon Music-3 Songs-2 Movies-1 Videos-4 Search-all 5 More-all 5 But, the TV icon was ambiguous TV-3? Screen-1? Track pad-1? ...

I think this discussion is very interesting. On the ux podcast by Per Axbom and James Royal-Lawson I heard they talk about the "hamburger menus" used on mobile devices and how often this icon is pressed depending on if the button had the label "menu" next to it or not. I googled it and came across this related article. http://exisweb.net/menu-eats-hamburger ...

My response probably isn't going to answer "THE common UI component" but I thought I might share how we will solve a similar problem in my project. We are designing a responsive search interface that has regular filters on the left hand side on large screens. On mobile all these filters will collapse into a bar below the search box. Please see my animated ...

The standard iOS interaction that users have come to expect: when you "swipe to delete" an individual cell, the delete button is indeed on the right-hand side of the cell. So in that case your boss' boss is correct. This functionality is built in to UITableView back to at least iOS5, so you don't have to change any code. However, per Apple's UITableView ...

We'd prefer not to have two different calls to action/two different links for the two scenarios. So don't. Just put one link labeled Join Event! or whatever makes sense. If your question is "How can my web page determine if the user has my app installed and redirect to different sites/protocols based on that information?" you should check out this ...

I would go by asking the question... From a field scannability perspective, what's more identifiable in your data? The Labels or the Value? The left details version places more emphasis on the Values vs the right details emphasizes the Labels. For your example of "Who, When, Where", the values themselves are pretty much understandable without the labels. ...

You really need to streamline your architecture for mobile. What works on desktop does not necessarily work on mobile. Find your key features, call to actions and group content into categories that only mobile users will need. That should reduce your complexity and make the app more streamlined to key activities.

I agree with Rizwan's answer, but instead you could try a tabbed "side-bar", like in Facebook's iOS app:

Why not a combination of both. The Tab bar seems crowded so you could move Inbox and Me to the Left sidebar. The Tab bar will have the main actions the user will need for your app Scan & Pay, Restaurants and Offers. The left sidebar will include the secondary actions for Profile, InBox, Settings, Help etc. In summary: Left Sidebar: Profile, InBox, ...

You should approach this problem from the view point of users who are flipping houses. Research and identify their mental models. What are they trying to achieve? Write a user story for your app. How will they use the app?.\ Your app should support the way they do business and make it easy for them to get on with their work. Since time = money for them the ...

Being a runner I am most likely to recommend an app right after I am on some kind of streak. The streak could be as small as a week or a full training period. You could say "Great job! You have run x days in a row. If you are enjoying this app...." Here is another way to you could try: You can insert a banner in between the feed/dashboard/stats page.

As far as I know, there are no explicit guidelines for hints or placeholder text. However, placeholder text tends to be one or two words, so there should be no reason for a period anyway. For instance, a textbook for a username could have the placeholder text "Unique username". Because the user recognizes the control, there is no need to explain that they ...
