comment Usability of a mobile navigation consisting mostly of accordions?
Define 'too much scrolling'. On mobile, scrolling is arguably the easiest interaction to use.

comment Is there a reason for drawing Material Design flat buttons like plain text?
As for Google being a akin to a totalitarian state...uh...that's probably a topic for some entirely different web site.

@JoeBlow "Advertising Firm" means something rather specific in this industry (graphic design)--namely they are the firms that create and buy the ads. Google does neither. I agree that they generate most of their revenue from advertising.

@AditGupta they're useful. But people just need to realize they are often sans a lot of context.

@JoeBlow Google isn't a advertising firm, however. They are absolutely a product design firm. They generate revenue from hosting advertising. The bigger issue is that Google is an engineer-heavy organization. UX and UI--while certainly important to Google--is often at odds with the much larger desires of the engineering side of things.

comment Wording: 0% or NO?
I'd argue those mean different things. %s could go into the negative if you actually gained weight, whereas 'no weight loss' wouldn't.

comment What are the core tools and processes an organization should have in place to test web application accessibility
This is a pretty broad question. What your org needs specifically is impossible for us to say. If you have the ability to hire staff, though, hire someone that specializes in this. They will then help you figure out the rest of your needs for you.

comment Is iOS's spell checker good UX?
@Majo0od actually, that's often how things did end up the way they ended up at Apple: Steve Jobs wanted it that way (which, at Apple was a valid reason. :)

comment What are the “spinning dots” in Windows supposed to represent, and why do they stop?
It's because the designer designed it that way.

comment Why are the “Undo” and “Redo” arrow icons commonly round?
In the context of your user's request, it actually doesn't matter why they're curved. Rather it matters that they are curved in nearly every other context. So for your buttons to have the same meaning, you likely want to match the accepted norm.

comment Hiding vs. disabling actions and show a message on mobile
I actually find the apple example a good example of why you SHOULDN'T disable at all. Apple has become less and less consistent with things like these over the years and that's not helping things either. That said, this is maybe a forgivable situation. And potentially one remedied through learning. But I'd still advocate that that ADD should be active and if you haven't filled in the correct fields, it tells you that when you try to tap it.

The catch is that disabling a control doesn't explain to the user why it's disabled.

comment Hiding vs. disabling actions and show a message on mobile
@castorda I don't know if there was general consensus formed on the answer you linked to. I would agree that in application menus it'd be acceptable as its become the norm, but in general I still want to see a good argument as to how disabling a control is better than leaving it active (but with a message) or just hiding it.

This question is pretty broad. What would be most effective for your needs would depend mostly on the specific needs of your users and the specifics of the UI that's being built.
