I can't say whether or not this is the best solution, but here are some advantages of toasts over other interface notifications: Toasts provide a consistent location for important messages to display. Toasts are versatile and typically don't require contextual placement, as they can be displayed over any existing interface elements. Toast animations draw ...

You could have a persistant panel (e.g. either across top, across bottom, to the right of the form) that contains the status of the current saved version compared to the form being edited: For example, the two statuses could be: If a save is required - [warning icon] Changes have been made, [SAVE button (enabled)] If up to date - [tick icon] Saved form is ...

I think a proper solution here would be to display the save button inside a "floating bar" at the bottom of the screen. That bar is as wide as the page, and simply sticks/snaps to the bottom of the page.. it will scroll up/down along with any field that is in focus. Additionally, you could choose to only show this bar in case changes were made.

1. Yes. Payments are often time-sensitive and important tasks, so informing your user of one using a notification badge is good practice. As for the badge on the individual sub-menus, I like them; they let users know how many of each notification they need to deal with. However, the current design of two red corner badges is a bit redundant. You might try ...

As for myself, as soon as the image started animating I lost track of the text in your question and was barely able to finish reading it. It's also a reason I installed adblock, which I disable on most sites but as soon as I see anything animated or view obstructing on the page, I just put it on again (and if it's not an ad, I explicitly block the source ...

If you were restricted by hardware then you probably wouldn't want to do any of this but, since you're using iOS and have existing hardware, why not allow the user to record their own sound to be played 1 second before the shutter release. This could be automatically cued so that the shutter fires 1 second after the recording has finished playing. You could ...

The sound is a good idea (but it can be not enough in certain conditions, for instance in noisy environments). I'd recommend to pay attention to pattern, frequency of your sound tone — It should be easily recognised by different people, not mixing, for instance, with speech tones, or other typical application sounds. Also it is important to make the ...

Note that cameras usually come with this feature and perform beeps in the last 3/5 seconds to let the photographed user/s know when to smile, but dont hesitate to experiment because i personally think a camera flash would be a very good identifier for people that are far away from the phone,but i do wonder who takes these types of pictures these days.

Take a look at the major players like twitter facebook etc and understand when emails are informative or just annoying. As an example if my friend sends me a message (even if its the first one) i wouldnt expect to get an email to tell me about it. Also concetrate information in a daily/weekly email to make users know what they missed and not what they ...

Always give users control Our inboxes are overloaded as it is. You're right to worry. You have to provide notification for those who come and go, but you can't force on the regulars or people who end up linked to a popular discussion. Stack Exchange provides a good pattern A checkbox to activate email subscription: And in-line settings to control ...

Modal is not a good idea here, because it blocks other user actions too (or prevent them to see their data that already loaded). you can simply show small progress bar on the right side of your screen with short data about the item. after it added, hide the box and just highlight the row of new item in table (or any other container you using).
