Try Recommending instead of showing equal choices. The paradox of choice is a funny thing. You can give someone so many options that they no longer have any options at all. There are plenty of psychological studies that show how paralyzing too many choices can be. Presenting tons of options can be a barrier to entry. In order to combat such analysis ...

Both work, but it's more important to make sure that the top of the page is visually clear Let's look at what happens when the user hits the home or scroll to top button: The screen changes (either by scrolling or by jump). This is going to be cognitively disruptive for long documents, whether you scroll or jump: the user will still be confronted with a ...

This is not about fancy "cinematic effects" or decoration. The animation actually serves the purpose of telling the user, that he or she is returning to a previous section of the document, thereby counteracting attention blindness and preventing confusion, especially in the case of the user accidentally clicking the back to top button. So yes, animate.

The fact that some top level items are containers is already denoted by the collapse icon (and the plural verbal form). So having a folder icon serves as a third way of telling the same story. From a user perspective, you can argue that finding the requested item is more important than the knowledge of whether it is a container or not. What's more, with ...

So if I understand correctly, you have a website which lists places to be activities to do. Is it crowd-sourced? Is there any benefit of inviting users to contribute? Or your model considers users only as consumers? This is important because that is how you'd decide what elements should be on the front page. Let us have a look at two websites. 1. Zomato (A ...

Let's start with your options... You have heterogenous options. That means, your options are all pretty different. Because maps are very different from ratings, which are very different from search, it's not easy for users to process a lot of heterogenous options. Compare that to homogenous options where the items are of the same kind. For 8-10 ...

My opinion is to use the first pattern because it's clear and orderly. That way immediately stands out what folders and such elements. Folders then could be slightly differentiated by type, as per your design. I always prefer this choice in my porgettazione. Even from tests done in different situations, I noticed a greater speed by the user to achieve his ...

For a 2 page interaction you can use the tab approach, but make sure that selected tab is indicated better. Since the pages are not linked then the tabs should work.

I would go for the first option. Showing blog posts on a "post-it" style seems to be a better option as you can show more information on a smaller screen and the user has the access to the full information at a distance of one click (or touch). I would suggest you to also put a thumbnail or a bit transparent version of the main image or video of the post in ...

If your site is primarely about 'events' then you could help the user by 'clustering' your events and offer 'search entry points' depending on the two most relevant pieces of information probably all events have in common and the user is also aware of: time and space. This would enable users to search for events and activities in two ways, even if they had ...

I think the Google design (homepage with just a searchfield) is bold, and maybe too bold for anything besides Google. So I'd put content on the front page. What comes to my mind? frequent searches (only successful ones: some hits, user selected at least one) (shows examples of what works, including search syntax) maybe some categories (shows what is ...

Before you settle on a "Home" call to action review your task flows. If you are more than 2 levels deep and can't "cancel" or "back" out to the home screen you may have too deep a hierarchy. Try and do what you can to flatten so that you can utilize "back" or "cancel". "Home" is a non-standard action in mobile. This is a good opportunity for you to dig a ...
