Your two suggestions work: Restore Activate Other options are Undelete Undo - However I'd probably go with Reactivate Restore works well for some uses, activate implies it's the first time, but reactivate seems to fit your needs better I'd echo the comments, though, that you need to match your words to what is actually happening, some possible ...

It seems to me that the term your looking for is "Restore". That being said (ready to be proven wrong) that "Restore" revokes a "Purge" which means that the record is still there, while "Delete" completely removes an item or record. On the other hand, the term "Cancel", stops a an ongoing task or a process. With the above in mind: your cancelled items ...

I do agree with the pros of Top-aligned labes and other types of labels. However, my question is - is it rather imperative to have the type of labeling be consistent across the whole application, i.e. for the whole Internet Banking application or the best practice is rather use all types of alignment given the different types of forms?

I do agree with the pros & cons of Top-aligned labes, however, the last conclusion that Top-aligned labels are only ideal for Simple forms sounds strange to me. Should not the type of labeling be consistent across the whole application, i.e. for the whole Internet Banking application that has both simple and complex forms?

It really does depend on your users and their context using your software. Unless the concept of "being live" is well understood for the users (because they have learned what it means by using your app), I think you need to find a better way of phrasing it. I'd consider: thinking about other ways to phrase it and doing usability testing when you talk ...

The best way to "promote" anything to your users is to demonstrate its value to them. Perhaps the best way to demonstrate your Twitter account's value is to give your users a sample feed from it, and to display your twitter account and information (as you've already done). If your users are convinced that your feed is of value to them, they are much more ...

Does the use of Twitter add something useful to most of your users, or is it just something that you think would be nice? If it doesn't add anything useful for most users, then I wouldn't make it prominent. Putting it somewhere like the "About" page, is a good choice here. As it's findable by someone that is looking for it, but not in the way for every ...

If your app makes your user follow you, then you better say so explicitly. I'm not sure what the nature of your app is, and if all users necessarily will have a Twitter account or not, but I would suggest only having your button link to your account page, and allow users once there to decide whether to follow you or not. Test this out and get some feedback ...

While this device is powered on Explain the exact cause and effect. In this case, it sounds like you don't really care if the device is being used (interacted with) and mean to say the settings below will take effect anytime your device is on.

I think saying some version of "While device is in use" is clear. Just show a couple people the settings page and do a quick usability test to see if they are confused. While device in use While device is in use While using device

The guide below lists consistent terms for various actions and even shows how to spell things in American English as they value consistent spelling and capitalization across action buttons. http://www.uxmatters.com/aboutus/uxmatters-style-guide.php The verbs you use will vary greatly depending on your target audience (old, young, technical, ...

It should definitely say the "destination activity". Also, the back button should take the user one step back so that they arrive at where they came from immediately prior. To most users, back means "go back one step" not "go back 3 steps" or "go back 5 steps".

General rule: Input on the left, output on the right. People read from left to right (excluding a few cultures). This means they will need to see the input, before they progress onto the results. Therefore the form needs to be on the left-hand side, with the results appearing on the right-hand side. Example: FreshDesk help site. If you click the Support ...

I also think that it should tell you where it will take you. Depending on how much space you have, ideally you can get "Back" in there as well. e.g. "<- Back to All Groups" Just be careful when it's possible to get to that site, without coming from the previous one (like when Google sends a user directly to a subpage). In this case the "Back" can be ...

I would go with the UX solution, and this is why: The two options you considered differ on the response to clicking on the label of the item. This controversy was raised because clicking on the label does not have a clear affordance as to what it does. A user will not know what this click does until he actually clicks. Hence, I support the less ...

I would go with the UX recommendation described above. You could do a couple quick user tests and see how people expect it to behave to support your hypothesis.
