The three dots are supposed to either signify that a string of text has been cut short and that if you would like to continue reading it you need to click the dots to precede or that there are further steps afterwards as in with 'Print...' I do see your thinking with 'Log in' but I think it's primarily used to reassure users when they think that clicking a ...

Check out the Ionic framework. It's a newer framework for hybrid apps that just hit 1.0. It's built on Angular, which means it's battle-tested in production apps, and easy to pick up if you're already familiar with the framework, as well as leveraging Cordova (PhoneGap) for cross-platform binaries. Angular has modules or components for everything you should ...

It depends on if you intend of the user reading carefully every notification. If that is a priority, then you could use fade-in/fade-out notifications that stack along the side of the screen: download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups This could include close buttons on each notification (the button could be displayed on ...

On key element to think about is that the term "Settings" refers to the software not the user. So you may find that you have two unique menu items. Profile, Account, etc. refer strictly to my information such as who I am, my username, password. Some could argue that Settings are specific to the user by saying that these are my settings that I want when I ...

Under normal circumstances I would say don't show progress bars for completed processes, especially if you are showing a list of jobs in various states of progress. It should be easy to quickly scan the list and identify the major categories of in-process: not started, in progress, completed, and if applicable also paused and failed. It is much easier to do ...

You could try using an accordion instead of tabs (here are some pros and cons), but it won't always work. Can't say that I see a good way of integrating tabs into the sidebar. As you mentioned,it doesn't look very good, and for a good reason - if all your objects have the exact same structure, it doesn't make a lot of sense to repeat it for each leaf in the ...

I think it really depends on how often you are going to have to do this, otherwise it is no point in creating a custom control for a very specific purpose that doesn't actually get used very much at all. One thing I thought of it to create a calendar-like widget that allows the user to click a start date and then an end date for the range, such that a ...

I'd probably separate this out into two separate views: Viewing the date range data, and creating/editing date ranges. The latter might use an accordion-style setup to create blocks for the dates and create some visual/logical separation: ...where the former would present the chart data with a date range selector and a link to the editor where one could ...

My rule of thumb (which pretty much merges with @DA01's comment), is "Do as much as you can, but don't do more than needed". Maybe, if you wanted to give each platform its different design guidelines to appeal everybody, you could simply make a native app (do as much as you can). They tend to be a better choice for users, rather than accessing a website, ...

Forget the "platform wars" and make the application user friendly from a touch perspective. The most important aspect you must try to achieve is to deliver a seamless experience across multiple platforms (make your app look and feel the same as much as you can on all platforms). As I see your application is not a very complicated so that shouldn't be so ...
