comment Which is the more common term used: Preferences or Settings?
Still, if you want to compare number of usages - count everything Mac as "Preferences". iPhone icon says "Settings" though.

comment Design pattern suggestion for overriding a default calculated value
I like a common pattern when default/calculated value is a clickable element next to the label - e.g. "Dosage (1 ml): |2|ml|" - when the user clicks the "1 ml", system will restore the computed value.

comment Using a virtual joystick for a game?
Bastion for iPad has similar controls. Works totally great - solves several problems at once, like you don't need to be looking at it to use it and you don't obscure the screen with your fingers like you do when you tap directly on the playfield.
