As I recall, excel used that green flag to denote a cell that was calculated from a function. This might confuse the average person who's seen that before. Personally, I think the best way to denote that changes are pending on a per-field basis would be to make the text bold and/or surround the field with a more pronounced text-box look. When they submit ...

Hundreds of actions among hundreds of users isn’t that much of a load for a modern database. Therefore, that’s not a real issue. Nevertheless, focusing more on the User Experience side of things, I think you should look at what Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are doing. They all notify the number of notifications which hasn’t been viewed, but when a user ...

Sorry, but I find your idea a) not really user friendly [actually rather user un-friendly] and b) additionally I would also consider your approach risky – very risky – even if you managed to solve the visibility issue. a) While I suppose it is true that our visual memory works quite good – I fear it would be quite difficult to actually have enough ...

The "normal" HTML components appear differently from browser to browser, so if anything, Bootstrap would make a multi-devise user more comfortable than stock elements. Moreover, testing the individual UI elements of the framework would be rather pointless, since trying to grade individual elements outside of the larger context of what the screen - or the ...

The first option is better because it makes very clear that there is a very clear developer option that the user can see. Furthermore, when a user activates the developer option, they most certainly want to use it.

For example, Orbitz suggested higher price hotels to Mac users: Orbitz Worldwide Inc. has found that people who use Apple Inc.'s Mac computers spend as much as 30% more a night on hotels, so the online travel ...

Regarding your size issue: Is there a size of your tabs in which 80-90% of the labels fit? If so I would suggest using that size as your default. And for bigger tabs you could make them grow according to content. That way you will have a good solution for most of your users and still be able to accomodate those select few that have bigger names for the ...

I think reporting crimes is a sensitive subject, and you might find people unwilling to report something if their name is directly attached to it. I think having the option to add your info is a good idea, but I would make that client-side and, as best you can, let the user known what you're doing with that info (i.e., nothing; storing it on the device and ...

My solution for deleting things is a button with a trash icon which opens a little popover. I think this is a good solution because: no disturbing dialog, everyone hates confirmation dialogs! confirmation is required. no accidential clicks user has only to read two words, no annoying question red color indicates that it is really deleted, you can empasize ...

Cons for Registering Registering and logging in is a pain, so for usability purposes, don’t do it if you don’t have to. In your case, I can see a major disadvantage if a citizen has to log in to report something to the police: in the citizen’s excitement, s/he can’t get the password right, which delays or even prevents the police from getting critical ...
