one time password (OTP) is implemented at server side via php and a third party service(in case of sending OTP via SMS). For an app, if you are using OTP for authenticating the user, it should always be manual,i.e, the authentication will be successful only after the user inputs the sent OTP. Otherwise, the whole OTP thing is useless. Consider this, I can ...

Have you considered using a single page design rather than splitting the page into tabs? Without knowing much about the content, does this sound suitable? Single page If designed respectfully with sufficient hierarchy then a user could happily scroll and skim your product page until they hit something that stands out. Then happily scroll again to the next ...

It's all in the convenience. Having everything in on place can arguably be considered more secure (Example: 1Password), but mainly, it's so you're not limited by the physical constraints of carrying everything. An extension of the Mobile Wallet are the apps that collect and store all your card numbers (like Air Miles, Grocery Points, Movie Points, etc). I ...

Speaking from experience, coachmarks are hard to implement correctly without turning away some users. Depending on how forceful you want your message to get across, either dismiss it: Only when the user selects the thing you highlighted; or When the user selects a dismiss button DO NOT set a timer to make it disappear after a duration. Users will be sure ...

My landing pages have large images, each of an individual building. I'm worried about information scent issues causing usability problems. The images have a parallax effect. Any suggestions on best usability practices in this case? Its ok to have full page background image unless its causing any performance issues. The image which you are using ...

Yes, it's totally fine (and preferred) for images to be full-width. They aren't on your site now, and it's actually unsettling because of the huge contrast between the background and photos. That's the reason full-width (or full-bleed) photos are great for landing pages (and web pages in general), less contrast against the background provides better user ...

It can be a great user experience, if it is done well. In addition to April Fool's Day jokes, Easter Eggs can fall into this category. What does "done well" mean? It is not obtrusive, and does not cause consternation (or worse!) to the user. Gmail's "Mic Drop" feature is an excellent example of how not to do this -- it was obtrusive, users ...

Yes I agree with the top rated answer here... It really depends.. But references to holidays that are outside of your users' culture can be alienating and cause confusion. The last thing you want are users feeling like they can't trust your product.

As with most jokes it comes down to how you tell it. But I can't believe that there's any UX rules around it - you'll end up like David Brent if you try and apply rules to humour. If you're users get it, then it's good UX. Even a bad joke will be accepted on April 1st. If you're users don't get it, then it's bad UX. So you'd better hope that your pointy ...

Most tablets have higher resolution screens than the average desktop and laptop screens, and are much closer to the user's eyes. So you will have to use better images, not lesser ones, to create a good impression with tablet users. The most common Tablet resolution is 2048x1536, the most common desktop resolution is probably 1920x1080. The most common ...

It's an app development company. Get both an Android device and an iOS device. And start downloading and using apps. Every single app you can find recommended for every single app usage activity. You have one month. If you download and use 10 apps per day, each for an hour per day, and note their 'on boarding' experience, the level of discoverability, ...

The answers to your questions vary greatly depending on the company you work for, their style of work and other business factors. But I’ll advise as best I can, based on my experience. 1) I would recommend basic readings of:

Put very simply: it depends. If it harms productivity or alienates your users then, no, it's not a good idea. It, on the other hand, it emphasises the personality of your product and/or fosters a more intimate relationship between your users and your product then, yes, it's a great idea. Good examples include the 'Visit Funky Town' easter egg on Google ...
