In the Online mode the App works as intended, so you need no to highlight normal mode. For Offline mode consider two cases: 1. An operation doesn't depend on network connection. The App displays small non-intrusive notification, so user flow doesn't break. All the tech details, like Offline time, Number of pending records are available in the dialog, which ...

Is the offline/online status linked to the user or the app? it feels like it's more user related than app related. In this case, for the online/offline part, you can do something similar to how instant messaging apps do it. For example facebook has a green dot when a user is online and time since the user was online when s/he's offline. For the browser ...

As I get deeper into the subject, I've made a welcome discovery...the Microsoft WPF SDK does simultaneous touchscreen gestures! (Their name for them is "manipulations".) No need to implement my own gesture-detection library.

I usually order panels from an agency that recruits them for us. The first bunch was mistakenly switched with a panel of non-business people for another project. ...

One option you may try is to add an "All Features" checkbox. When the checkbox is selected the sub-features are hidden. When the user deselects the checkbox, the sub-features are displayed, and the checkboxes on the feature level are hidden.

You could use an accordion control to allow expanding the category. However, I see a couple of problems here: If some options can be hidden, you need to handle partial selection. Otherwise, the rolled-up view would be misleading if only some of the categories were selected. Partial selection will likely be difficult to implement clearly (and it might be ...

Already DasBeasto has put a good answer. I am just adding a couple of cents for the motive. The motive is clear, Money. But it not always that the sites are less popular or less used. There are certain sites which are sure of their audience. They are sure that the content they are offering has carved a niche place for them to take user for a ride. The ...

One thing to note about ads is, in general, they are worth more the bigger they are. A website can have a 200px x 200px in the sidebar and be less annoying or they can put a giant 600px x 600px ad popover on the screen and it will generate more money for the website. The second thing to consider is many ads generate revenue just on impressions, meaning the ...

You have said it in your question itself. Internet literate people use such kind of websites less. The primary motive of such websites will be money alone. Audience They don't expect much comeback rates for the particular app. Many of those sites are not designed by experts or not as a service.

Money. Publishers just want money. People who own websites and people who put ads on it are different people (and people who actually pay for ads are third). Advertising networks became very huge and pay a lot of money to "publishers". It is very tempting.

I'm fond of applying Steve Krug's maxim "Recruit loosely and grade on a curve". If you can't find your ideal users feel free to recruit other folk, but apply more weight to the feedback of people who are closer to your target group.

I'm not too familiar with affinity diagramming, but it seems it's an activity that a project team will go through, to organize their findings and knowledge about a project. Card sorting is an activity that a UX researcher will facilitate with users and knowledge experts, as a way to capture what they know about a field. The results then shape the ...

If you are using the concept of User Stories, and you have built your functionality to fulfil user stories, your usability testing could follow the same pattern. (if you are using Cucumber, then your Cucumber tests can also be derived from the user story really easily) e.g. Example user stories for Amazon.com User story: As a customer, I want to be able ...

Yes, if the cost / difficulty of gathering data from college students is low and easy but needs to be kept in check if you are still going to test the actual target audience. It also depends on how many rounds of testing you plan on doing and time management. Project creep be lurking unless user testing is done in parallel? Yes, why not so long as this is ...
