Two options Detect tap/touch/click outside the input box and search results (if you wanna avoid x button) Go with traditional x button But users might not know how to close if only option 1 is implemented, until they try.

From my comment above. One way of implementing this is to add a little gray 'x' symbol at the end of the input area, that when clicked will clear both the input area and the dropdown results. This system is fairly widespread so users are likely to understand it (for example, Windows Explorer's search box uses this). However, you can always add a caption ...

Google hangout has the same requirement as your application. You cannot do two hangouts at the same time. Yet Google does not shock the user by disconnecting the first call when a second call is attempted. Instead, you see an error message in the second call's window. Why don't you try the same approach?

On any site is is not ideal to break a user's expectations. As a user expects to be able to navigate the internet with tabs in their browser, you shouldn't break it.

You're looking at the problem from the wrong angle. A user could also open a different browser, or use a second device, which means you can't rely on the idea of opening tabs(and preventing it), nor on IP address. Your solution needs to be server-side. Signing them out would just annoy them. Either make it so your website show them the same game no matter ...

You can make fake links in JavaScript. Example: http://jsfiddle.net/Dkxj4/ These fake links will only execute the JS code you assign to them, and there is no "Open in new tab" option possible. So if there are only your fake links on the page you have complete control over what they will do. (You might also want to check the IP address to disallow someone ...

I won't use remote testing for mobile apps, because: Hardware need to be good enough to handle simultaneously one consuming app (screen grabbing and video saving) and your test app. Streaming isn't possible or only in WiFi conditions. You need enough disk space / SD space. That narrows your testable smartphones down to premium phones with mostly huge ...

personally i prefer guerrilla usability testing aka cafe testing, where you approach people in cafes (when they aren't busy) and offer them a coffee in exchange for their time.

Personally, I would implement a 3rd party tool like PhotoSwipe. iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry 6 and Desktop all supported. Take a look at their video demo. What is it? PhotoSwipe is a FREE HTML/CSS/JavaScript based image gallery specifically targeting mobile devices. Who is it for? Developers and designers requiring an interactive image ...

Maybe something like one full-width image below which put thumbnails, say, in the grid 3 images per row. Default display first one, change displayed image as user picks other thumb. However, it depends on a context. What's been written above is good for images of hotel rooms or images of users.

How about a simple "Employees - tap to edit" header and table items that instantly go into edit mode when clicked ? The reasoning is the following : this is explicit it keeps short and will not result in overcrowding the interface and UI trends are such that most displayed elements now offer some sort of interactivity so it is likely that users will try ...

I'd go for: Option 3: Use a vertical ellipses to the right of the Call button that opens a flyout menu with two options: Edit and Delete. Mainly because this option is the one least likely to result in accidental deletes or unintentional entry to edit mode, but also because these are less common secondary actions but which still need to be ...

The easiest thing for the user is probably a textfield - that'll make it easy to delete any bits of the text they don't want. Something like this perhaps? I've left out the 'exact match' option: it makes it simpler for the user, and I suspect that there are very few cases where the user needs to do an exact match where a substring match wouldn't work.

Are you always selecting complete words as triggers? If so, you could use completion: User types "B", system proposes "Belfast" and "Belfast account", user selects second one. Or, the user taps trigger words to include in rule. Esp. the last idea depends heavily on the task familiarity and training - it sounds you have a rather specialized task which is ...

Apart from what has been said. If your web site is more of an application rather than a typical information site, you could additionally try to encourage your users to make a shortcut on the springboard. You can even provide a custom icon then and the app will run full screen. Although only in Safari. Besides that Benjamin is right. Don't underestimate your ...

I think you'd be surprised how smart users are, most of them are able to quickly distinguish native controls from web controls. That being said, as long as you don't deliberately try to make your controls look like part of the browser you should be ok (this is an anti-pattern that malware often uses to imitate system controls). In the Facebook and BBC ...
