If you can, let the user know why you're going to ask for permissions before asking. "Sharing your location will help you [better accomplish a goal]. Please accept on the next screen." Or similar. Then they are not surprised by the request and understand how it will benefit them and their use of the app. In the case mentioned above, I would not see a strong ...

Icons by themselves are often confusing. Outlook 98 was a famous example that, at first, went with icons. Microsoft quickly realized that they had to add labels as well. Android could help the situation by having a label or tool-tip appear when the user starts selecting text. This would keep the screen clean until the user begins the action. [Don't focus ...

If the App is available only in couple of cities or a few cities, considered just showing this info and asking the user to vote for his city. If all you need is just the City where the ...

It is fine to prompt them to switch on GPS, but it should be easy (i.e. you prompt them, they click "Ok" and then it is switched on for them. It isn't so nice if they have to leave the application and navigate through their settings to switch it on before returning to the application. If the above is easy, you could order the actions this way to ensure ...

There are already a decent number of tools that do this, and even show offending code with the rule(s) that it's violating. Some code can "may or may not be" violating a rule, and they allow you to flag the particular snippet as "passing" or "not passing". Using Difficult ---- Formidable ---- Easy Is fine, but not terribly descriptive. Current WCAG ...
