comment Web App: Table in phones?
Can't you just rotate the text in the header row (45 or 90 degrees) to narrow the grid so it fits on a small display?

comment Best way to display plus/minus or pros/cons short sentences
These types of arrows typically represent a change in value since a previous period, ie, a trend and I don't think they are valid here.

comment Calendar recurrences on the last day of the month
I'm struggling to find a use case for when you would want a monthly event that only happens when there is a 31st day. How outlook handles this appears right, and adding more options seems unnecessary.

comment What are some good examples of guiding people through an infographic or interactive, but without it feeling like it's on rails?
I would agree with both of these options to add some life to something. Perhaps it's a quarterly financial or something like that -- you could definitely liven it up with Prezi or Metablob. Do take a step back as @benny skogberg suggests before you get too deep.

comment Is there any good reason why I shouldn't make some mobile app parts sticky?
Because there is no scrollbar in mobile pages, the header is often the only indicator that you are at the top of the page. In a regular desktop, you can glance at your scrollbar to judge whether you're at the top or not. This doesn't exists in mobile. For this reason alone I've been against sticky headers in mobile.

comment Does a list of checkboxes necessarily mean multiple choices?
I'm glad @Leo is reviewing usability on this site, because this is so wrong. This is the sort of thing that I would expect to see a comment for in the code that looks like this: //TODO: Fix query performance problem when multiple filter options selected. Limited to just one selection for now.

comment display reports while minimizing resolution issues
Are the report interactive -- with click events for drill down? Or can you render the report as a PDF and have their pdf reader deal with it.

comment Are live stats effective? e.g. “5 people are viewing this hotel right now”
I can only think that this helps build urgency in a users mind. "All these other people can make up their mind. What's wrong with you? Just book it already!" In my work context, we are designing this sort of activity alert in our product to help users determine best practices. ie. 15 users ran this report today, or, 32 people have this widget on their dashboard. But I'd like to read some studies when there are REAL dollars on the line if you can encourage a user to act now.
