For any select list of over a couple dozen options, free-text search with autocomplete support is the only sane option. This is a common pattern seen on real estate sites (Zillow, Redfin, etc) and travel sites (AirBnb, Kayak, any airline, etc.) Kayak shown below. Fred Meyer (big-box retailer) has a 'Select Store' search box to solve this - requesting you ...

This is a pretty simple interface so I only see three options: Leave it as is Move the difficulty to a second screen that appears after the start button is clicked Put the difficulty under the settings menu you have on the footer. Not #2 First of all I want to say I would rule #2 out because there is no need to make the user select their difficulty ...

As per Material Guidelines on bidirectionality it should look something like this: download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups The guiding principle for RTL interfaces is that time moves from right to left. Forward points to the left, backwards points to the right. You should also notice that if you have representation ...

the question is IMO fairly broad, so my answer will probably reflect this First of all, separate applications per platform are not déclassé, they live side by side and the choice for one or the other really is about the purpose & needs of the application + the performance that you want to get, full native app vs. web app will have a huuugeee difference ...

A very common method of displaying numeric results is a number inside of a circle. You will have seen this with iOS notifications and other web applications. A quick mockup of what it could look like: download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups Something like this is effective at conveying your meaning because it builds ...

The first thing that came to mind was the phrase "the lesser of two evils". In developing an application with a UX mindset, it's almost always best to reduce the friction between the user and the interface. In this case, using the link "Get Coupon Here" to link to another page that actually provides the link to the user is introducing this friction, causing ...

As mentioned in the answer linked by @DasBeasto, a good solution might be an auto-completing text field. The user only needs to start typing the name of the location, and the text box will start filtering it down. However, this really only works for users who already happen to know where this location is exactly located. If the user is searching for a ...

It's a fuzzy world we live in People seem to take a boolean stance on this problem, where like mostly in UX there aren't hard and fast rules - optimal design depends on context. Hide vs disable Just to bring all to par, the recommendation is to hide a control unless another user action can enable it - no point having something disabled if it will always ...

What's the argument for disabling? Typically disabled controls are confusing as one then has to figure out why they are disabled in the first place. I'd argue disabled controls should be avoided in general regardless of the device.

I like 5 sec tests but You can't get so much from 5 second test. it is more get OK test type and can be named as guerrilla kind of test. Trustworthy , company domain, service type can be questioned within 5 sec test. Brand engagement and recalling name can also part of this test. It can be also used when you choose an image, logo or icon. 5 sec test can ...

In android there's always the long-press gesture, the swipe in android is mostly used as a direct delete function. Perhaps you should read the guidelines for each platform first as this will explain the expected behaviour a user would have on said platform :-)

Going by the limited information we have, I assume that we are talking about something along the lines of a "planned transaction" form, where there are three actions: Primary Action 1: Authorize will actually cause the transaction to happen Primary Action 2: Reject will prevent the transaction from happening Secondary Action: Cancel will NOT have an ...

An option that I like is "Text to myself". On desktop, offer a form to let the user text the link to their own mobile device. (This form would be hidden on mobile, of course.) I've seen this option used effectively on store locator pages, and I think it could work for your scenario, too.

0. TL;DR Yes, the media queries are matching your purpose. Although I think it would be safer if you wrote the first media query as max-width: 900px and the other one as min-width: 901px. 1. Different devices You will surely need more breakpoints (media queries) in order to accommodate the most part of the mobile/tablet market share. The best way to ...

I like the current layout. But I would probably ask the user to select the difficulty every time they press a start button

One more comment: users with motor impairments will find challenging to tap small targets in your app. It has been shown that if you place buttons next to the bezel area (border) it is easier for them to access. Also, try to provide an alternative to pinch gesture (like buttons for zooming in and out), as it is the most difficult thing to do for someone ...

We always think "Mr" or Mrs" average is using an App. Suppose you were asked to apply accessibility standards to your app based on a few more users that has cognitive challenges or impaired vision...that creates another user Persona that would have to accommodate those demographics and alter potential security risks (when increased time is modified to suit ...
