I work at Path doing iOS, and I love it.

I love cohesive design: showing that you care enough to design something amazing from the bottom up is a requirement to really get my attention.

I love little details: I probably sweat the details in everything I do—a true strength and weakness—more than anyone I've ever met.

I don't settle when it comes to The User Experience: users, at the end of the day, are the only ones who matter, so if I'm not unwavering in my determination to create the ultimate User Experience, then I'm not doing my job.

Other than that, I enjoy studying Japanese and whistling like a pro to my favorite songs.

comment What is an acceptable delay for the user when waiting for search results?
Yeah, I wasn't particularly concerned with the appearance of responsiveness; I'm a fanatic when it comes to keeping an app responsive at all times. I guess it was more a question of acceptable network wait.

comment Should the space between the checkbox and label be clickable?
I would simply argue that if the user is clicking in tiny areas between labels and checkboxes, they probably are meaning to interact with something. :) So I'd say, yes, for sure.

comment How to prevent registration from login page and login from registration page
I've been told that being "helpful" by prompting for a login when the user accidentally tries to register is a security issue. People could fish for login names. I couldn't care less about the implications, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

comment Is there any research indicating how users perceive certain design flaws, such as gradient banding?
I hate to be a stickler, but considering that you mention not having seen any information about negative impacts in particular, I technically don't think my original question was answered, though the information you shared was very interesting.

comment Animation on Handheld: How Much is Too Much?
I would add that it's fine to add animations even if they aren't determined to be absolutely necessary. There's nothing wrong with a touch of eye candy here and there, and long as it's fast and never gets in the way. (De facto 0.3 second fading transition is my bread and butter!)

comment What is more pleasing to the eye fade in or suddently appear
iOS utilizes implicit animations almost everywhere. The default transition time is 0.3 seconds, so I would argue that transitions of that nature have little to no negative impact on perceived UI speed. What's important is how quickly a UI change begins. I personally don't tolerate things popping in. It's hard to sometimes tell what just happened in the UI, especially if it's something subtle like a button becoming disabled. Transitional animations can and do offer important usability affordances.

I guess in my original question, I am more interested in seeing how design mistakes negatively impact UX, not just whether the presence or absence of design affects UX.

Wow interesting read. That looks answer-worthy to me. :)
