comment Walk the user through initial data entry after the first login
Thanks a lot for sharing this! Gamification of the data entry process (which is often quite boring) makes a lot of sense. I'll try to find some more resources in this area.

comment Walk the user through initial data entry after the first login
Thanks for the answer, John! I didn't even think about this issue from the viewpoint you described. Would you say these 3 approaches apply also in the situation when it's for user's own benefit to fill in the data? Again, as an example I'll mention the application where user stores his own recipes. The application is useless if there are no recipes so I'm not sure if rewarding/punishing user is really needed. I assume the user is motivated enough to enter the data since he/she is paying for the app. I'm just thinking how to guide the user to enter the data. Or am I over-analyzing this?

comment Add new field to the form as user focuses on the field
I disagree that everybody hates to fill out forms. People hate to fill forms when they are forced to (e.g. ordering from online store) but forms are used in many other ways. Think web application where user creates his/her own library of favorite movies or recipes. I slightly edited the original question and included more suitable use case example.

comment What are some good patterns for displaying large lists on the web?
Great questions, I'll try to clarify. Context: user will create a list of shopping items and categorize them (as seen on the picture). Once the list is created, user can make a shopping list by selecting items from the list. Shopping list can be printed or sent to a mobile phone. I guess this clarifies most of your questions. I haven't tried any other solutions, as this is work in progress. I'm currently just researching possible options.
