If users are confused by more technical names, try something more contextual, like "My Business" (or, "My Gym" if it's that specific, and possible). Also, if it's really an entry point to the rest of the app, then just "home" might work and they'll learn which controls and information are available there.

For many years Microsoft has made it established usage to use "press" and "key" when speaking of the keyboard, and "click" and "button" when speaking of the mouse and the virtual buttons on the screen. The distinction has been very useful for 10 or 20 years. Rather than throw away a distinction that is still often required, we should keep those distinctive ...

I strongly disagree with some of the posts I've seen here. The term HMI is heavily used today. HMI or Human Machine Interface is commonly reserved for defining a point of control for a Human to a machine driven process. This can range from a 1-button push button station, to a 4-buttons on and enclosure with a computerized HMI device such as a Panelview ...

I would go for : e-commerce docs in "My account" (even if it already exist) with clear categories statics ones regrouped in something like "documentation" AND in each page/form/other element wich is in relation with the needed information. I mean if you talk about a certain product in a page, add the file in there.

As with much else, it's about how you frame it in a context more than anything else. No one would know what a retweet was before they knew what a tweet was. Therefore I suggest that you don't show an empty area on the front page but that you rather populate it with at least one widget that you either know or expect to be popular. Then you add the call to ...

A lot of this depends on the context: if there's a frame of reference, most would understand "Pos" for "Position". Without a frame of reference (ie the user is not expecting "location-y" information) they probably wouldn't Position: Pos Would likely be understood in a reasonable context, but be wary Coordinate: Coord/coords Would be understood in ...

Fixed names for variable circumstances is, in itself, fairly bad UX: if you can change that, I suggest you do. If it's not possible to change, however, I'd just name them after whatever goes through it: "Car" and "Pedestrian" - the user presumably knows what the app is for (opening gates) already, so just needs an identifier

In iOS 'All Photos' mean both Photos and Videos. From home screen press Camera > Image Thumb (bottom left corner) > 'All Photos' (top left corner) You will see all your Photos and Videos. You better stick with the term what iOS is currently using. So I would use 'All Photos'.

It's not a standard, but you could refer to "Camera gallery", which would be a more common term for anything that has visual content, both on and off-line. If you want a more technical term even "Camera folder" could work. If you want to make sure the user understands it's on the device they're holding, you could preface it with "My" (or "your", depending ...

Visual Media would cover both pictures and films (or photos and videos) as it is a collective term for both. However, it is a little formal. Or have a separate table for photos and videos and don't group them together in one camera roll. You may be better off just sticking to the term camera roll as even if the younger generation have never seen an actual ...

Your Photos or Photos Apple itself refers to the contents of the Photos App as "Photos" or "Your Photos". Those screen shots show how Apple asks for permissions to access the contents of the Photos App.

A clickthrough agreement or clickwrap ;)

This is the most logical name for your data layout for the reasons above, as it displays all of the features/attributes of it. I would call that a grid-based card layout. It shows attributes of a card, in that is is a small area containing text data, in a grid-based format.

I cannot reply as a comment (I miss reputation points to do that). Therefore I write an answer- let's see if it helps you. In my opinion the "card" name represents it in the best way- a single piece of data that should be viewed as a separate entity. In general, cards of various sorts are very popular on the web nowadays: ...
