Interesting question. According to Jacob Nielsen: “The Back button is the lifeline of the Web user and the second-most used navigation feature (after following hypertext links). Users happily know that they can try anything on the Web and always be saved by a click or two on Back to return them to familiar territory.” But that was 1999 and ...

The often misquoted '5 users' is because Neilsen is describing 'iterative' testing of the same website. *You want to run multiple tests because the real goal of usability engineering is to improve the design and not just to document its weaknesses. After the first study with 5 users has found 85% of the usability problems, you will want to fix these ...

The term Sign In can be used for both actions. It's also a good term if you're providing additional Sign In options like Facebook, Twitter or OpenId, as "Sign in using Facebook" doesn't imply the burden of a (possibly lenghty) registration process.

The answer is progressive engagement. You delay the sign-up until the user needs to (e.g. save selected items, use shopping cart etc.). The initial sign-up must require information that is absolutely necessary (no credit card). Only when the user is ready to buy ask for a credit card. The following article by Joshua Porter explains it in more detail : ...

We are confronted with the same issue here at work. We implement a new responsive design to our SaaS and use Select2 for select boxes. We will change the behavior that way that when entering a select on an XS view (Bootstrap), the select will take the whole available screen. I expect that on a tiny interface, no user actually cares about what is going on ...

Have you tried combining the collapsable accordion along with a detail view? It gives a nice fluid feeling, especially when the expand/collapse animations are done properly:

I found this particularly insightful : http://www.colormatters.com/color-symbolism/global-color-survey. After taking the survey, the results were as follows. Over 130,000 people from all points on the globe took the survey. Here are the results: Happy - Yellow Pure - White Good Luck - Green Good-tasting - Red (tomato) Dignity - Dark Blue High Technology ...

When clients say they want to transmit something, I normally ask them for examples of what products, logos or slogans they have in mind at that time. My idea of luxurous may not be exactly the same of my client, so through examples and exploring more of their public I can have more of those informations. Maybe people from one country think golden colors ...

You could use a scrolllist for the FAQ questions instead of a accordion. If you press e.g. on "Question 3" the detail view for question 3 is moving smoothly from right to left. If you press on "< Back" the FAQ list is moving from left to right. In addition you can offer buttons to switch to next or previous question in the detail views. download ...

If we're talking iPhones 40px on a non-retina screen is the same height as 40px on a retina screen. The device doubles the height accordingly as needed on retina to make sure it's physically the same size.

Decreasing the height of auto suggest and applying scroll may help. It would be more user friendly if you show number of results found somewhere on right side of auto suggest, this may help user to decide scroll it or not.

Since your goal in the research is summative, you do not necessarily need to test multiple devices. You can choose what you are measuring, and be clear that this is what you are measuring. If you do choose to measure a single type of device, you can either do it based on data (if you have it) about the types of devices that students currently use to ...

You need to prioritize your requirements and place appropriate buttons on the map. You can place the buttons near any of the four corners(with some margin ofcourse) An example would be: Place the 'my-location' button on the map. this is so that the user can quickly return to his current location. For me, even though it takes some space, it is something ...

A haptic feedback is used to strengthen the feedback for a normal user, post visual implication of the action taking place, so it should always be used to make the user a repeat feedback other than visual and audio that should make him more conscious amongst the audio/visual biases.
