They have (slightly) different meanings and usage Although both icons are similar and both are popularly recognized, they do have slightly different connotations. ❤ The heart icon Is more emotive by its very nature.

I think the difference between the two isn't huge, both are frequently used for the feature you are describing. Perhaps thinking of the emotion you are trying to evoke is more important. For example, a favourite on this site is represented by a star. This makes sense, it's a 'professional' site. Whereas if I'm on a site like say AirBNB, a heart makes ...

Since the objective is to favorite a location in a mobile the recommendation would be a GEO-HEART. This is the ideal graphical representation to portray the favorite location.

Top right Most users will perceive the image and related text as a whole, then process it starting at the top left then moving downwards and across if necessary. For image+text (English/left-to-right languages) combinations, the visual flow looks like this from eye-tracking studies: Here's what that flow looks like for a Facebook image+text feed: ...

I would suggest a solution of a button instead of link as users have more familiarity with buttons rather than Descriptive Links due to usage of buttons on desktop and PC software Option 1) Swap your Continue Reading link to a BUTTON saying "Read more here" Option 2) Even if you want to use just links then try changing your link text to "Read more here" ...

You're raising an interesting point, but there may be more going on than a lack of familiarity with using the web. How did you observe the huge chunk of users in India interacting with links and what they do and don't understand? The specific content and layout of the page also may have some effect, and then it's possible that users do understand that there ...

I dont see an issue with the naming. We had a similar issue in one of our applications, the solution was to display a column after the sorting with the number of days remaining along with the actual due date. Due in X Days. Although, I believe these labels are more common: Due date soonest first Due date latest first

First of all I would suggest you to ask yourself "Do I want my user to delete a photo that easily?" Actions that cause some sort of loss should not be made that easy to reach. They should be intuitive but not easy. Deleting a photo is one of them. Also I would want my user to keep photos for as long as possible to build a sound profile. Maybe someone at ...

I would go with the dropdown or the section (option 1 or 2) depending on the frequency of use and the available space. Option 3 is too invasive and distracting. With those two you will be able to show state, for me the difference is that with the section you take more space and save 1 click (no need to expand dropdown), and with the dropdown you gain space. ...

Top right. Since most people are right handed (roughly up to 90 percent of people are right-handed) and using Fitts's law formulas it is the best option. Scott http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handedness http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitts%27s_law

If you use a rating for your locations as well, I would go for a heart as favourite icon. Stars are usually used for a rating like 3 out of 5. I've never seen this with hearts. Otherwise star and heart just have a different tone as Vincent already said.

This depends on the context of the application but i think just the iconic representation and drop down to show the accessible links of the profile is an ideal way of showing the profile information. Instead of showing the text (name) there next to the icon. Following reasons will corroborate why am calling this as an ideal method. 1) There will be ...

Lets have a look at some of the popular websites and how they do it. WordPress Foursquare Twitter Google also offers something similar. One thing is common, they have direct name at the top right corner. This is more casual, personal approach. This user name is optionally accompanied by profile picture based on the domain of your website. The drop ...

I think your design and terminology work fine: Dropdowns are a common and proven approach to sorting. Your labels are clear. Sorting future dates is not an easy concept to convey, and you've done it in a clear manner. The only additional suggestions I'd have are small ones: It's common to offset the title of the menu item from the detail, for example: ...
