Interesting view. However, not quite consistent with what you see in the sample image. When writing on paper, you use the line as the base line of the text. That is, letters like jgy would sink under the line. That is not the case here, breaking the analogy with writing on paper I think.

comment Is using an accordion in a mobile footer better than a long list?
Do you have any idea if people actually use the links in the footer from a mobile device? If not, I see no problem hiding them...

comment Do material design's floating action buttons provide a bad UX?
Doesn't that depend on the screen size? I have a "small" phone (iPhone 4), that I hold and control with my right (dominant) hand. I also use an iPad, that (while on the move) I hold with my left hand and operate with my right.

@Ajedi32 As Samsung devices are by far the most common Android devices, I think that it is fair to state that chances are it will be close to the back button.

comment Adding a “none of the above” option to a list of checkboxes
I, too, think this is a good solution. Visually, I would make sure to set the NOTA option slightly apart from the other options though.

comment Adding a “none of the above” option to a list of checkboxes
I see some issues with this design, apart from the one mentioned by above. When you click the 1 or more radio button, but have not (yet) clicked any of the check boxes, you have a strange, inconsistent state. And logically, checking the None radio button should clear any checked boxes, but only with special coding will that be reversible.

comment Is there a better solution than breadcrumbs to cascading categories on mobile?
@njzk2: actually, the browser itself is a problem as well, especially the tree representation they tend to use. Consider this example: i.stack.imgur.com/5ieum.png of the tree view in the browser. How does this tell me anything? How is this easy to navigate. It doesn't even tell me where I am! Also note that my point was on the deep hierarchy itself.

@njzk2 A file browser is a good example what's wrong with deep hierarchies. They are hard to navigate, and finding back a particular file you made 2 years ago is often a problem. That's why they offer search, because navigating the hierarchy is hell.

comment Why does Balsamiq talk about mockups when it doesn't seem a mockup
Who defined the terms in the way you use them now? And why exactly do you expect Balsamiq to be bound to that exact definition?

comment Why did Microsoft make all the Office 2013 icons have such similar colours?
I fail to see how the situations is worse now than it was. Look how close the old colors for Word, Visio and Lync are. Project? (there are two P's?) is also quite close. The set Outlook, Project and whatever S represents is also quite close, as are Excel and the two P icons. The only problematic choice may be the color change for Outlook. That application is used often at the same time as other applications including Word. I'd have chosen more different colors for these. Note that the outline of the icons, especially when viewed at a larger size, is now easier to distinguish than was before.

comment Make it clear a capture was taken
We're just capturing a single image, which then needs to be reviewed and accepted or rejected (and then re-taken). After accepting, they are processed with lots of image processing (which takes a couple of seconds). The actual capture is basically instantaneous.
