comment Where to place call to action on the iOS mobile form?
(also: can you customize the button on the keyboard? I wasn't aware that you could.)

comment Where to place call to action on the iOS mobile form?
I don't know that I'd use the term 'call to action' for that. The action is the page itself...fill out the form. The 'call' to action should have happened before the user gets to this page.

comment Preparing Positioning Specs for iOS Developers
You can't. If the developers don't have an eye for detail, no amount of documentation will fix it. Try to adopt a more agile process with plenty of feedback loops so you have the opportunity to review multiple times before going live.

My answer isn't about visuals--but rather about content. I can't judge the quality of the comments on your web site. That'd be up to you.

comment Do password fields on registration forms need to be masked?
@Bohemian thanks for migrating this! I intended to post here to begin with and didn't even realize I posted on SO.

I don't think tristanlabbe's answer contradicts per se. I think tristanlabbe is talking more about visual relations between them, where I'm talking a bit more about quality of content.

comment What kind of design do users like the most at the time of this question, 'Flat' or 'Skeuomorphic'?
'flat design' does not negate shadows, gradients or textures.

Again, Skeuomorphism isn't the opposite of flat design. They can work in parallel. Early GUIs were were both flat (aesthetics) and skeumorphic (visuals and interaction)

comment How to deal with extra space
While I agree that borders are usually superfluous (Chart Junk) I think we're looking at wireframes rather than visual comps. Wireframes tend to be boxy by design.

If I understand your update, I think it's a responsive layout...which makes perfect sense to me.

comment Would it be relevant to learn/understand how manipulation works as UX Designers?
I'm not entirely clear of the question here. are you asking if it's OK to manipulate users into doing something? From a sales standpoint? Maybe. From a UX standpoint, I can't think of a time it'd ever be OK. I think it'd usually fall into the dark patterns concept: darkpatterns.org

comment In the UXD process who owns the body copy?
This is, sadly, true and all-to-common. UX ends up writing because the organization hasn't actually invested in content writing talent. Granted, that's the next best thing but, ideally, more orgs would invest in actual writers.

comment Do password fields on registration forms need to be masked?
re: first paragraph, I think that's a good point, but not really applicable to registration. Rarely would you be registering on a web site while letting people watch your screen. re: second paragraph...that's an interesting point!

comment Must identical divs have the same height and aquantity of text
Is there a UX question here, or are you asking about implementation? If the latter, you should ask this on StackOverflow.

comment Should special characters or punctuation be included in hyperlink text?
It depends on context. Are the brackets important? If not, get rid of them altogether.

comment Should special characters or punctuation be included in hyperlink text?
Technically, it doesn't matter. It's more of a style-guide issue. Be consistent. That said, to accommodate screen readers, you may wan to consider omitting the brackets.

comment Native vs. Browser Based Sign in for Mobile Apps
I'd suggest option 3. If done well (ie, good responsive solution) it shouldn't be too drastic of a departure from the app itself and not a big deal. Also, lots of apps do this these days (link off to web sites to handle some functionality) so isn't an out-of-the-ordinary experience, either.

comment Do password fields on registration forms need to be masked?
@RossTajvar I think that's an interesting point too (though perhaps we're digressing...). The reason I don't like masked fields is that I do use complex passwords and need to write them down in something like 1Password.

comment Do password fields on registration forms need to be masked?
@RossTajvar I think RagingCelt has a good point. Is a masked field a security plus (people can't see it) or minus (because people can't see it, they type in simpler passwords)?
