comment Condensed UI experience using Jquery Mobile for browser-game
@ kontur Well, I don't think its ever a problem to try and stuff everything onto a page. In a worse case scenario, you list it. I'm just looking for a solution that condenses the information thats necessary into a good looking design. Right now...the upgrade button is floating in the middle of no where. Theres barracks info an unit info. They seem sparsely tied to each other...nothing really interacts or flows. I tried layering data, but in a mobile environment, you have much less space.

comment Usability assesment methods for cross-platform mobile applications
just something to keep in mind: Native apps will undoubtedly be "better." The thing you should focus on is whether the difference in quality/speed is noticeable to the user. Jquery Mobile allows for a very native feel using HTML5 / javascript and looks almost identical to xcode's libraries.

comment How to make it obvious that you can drag things that you normally can't?
i vote for the unique border. dotted lines, to me, indicate something is not 'set.' You can add an image of a small hand in a corner(along the dotted line) which appears on hover if you'd like. Alternatively. you could make the dotted lines appear when the user clicks a 'rearrange' button, which would be clearly marked.

Yes, and thanks for your help so far. For your site, after clicking a tag (i.e. google), do you display all affiliated tags on the left to allow a further drill down? I am considering a javascript(auto-complete?) that 'recommends' affiliated tags through a simple drop down. maybe it will make more sense to check out the prototype: rickymason.net/thebump

It is definitely a tagging system, and the DB is set up identically. The difference is that, unlike amazon, or any other similar site, the tags are created spontaneously via the user. Having checked out delicious, its similar, but imagine if each tag chosen could be further filtered down. Such as google >> search engine >> algorithm. This would yield a unique result...But just, 'search engine' would yield THAT result, as well as many other ones that relate to non google.

@mciarrocchi They are completely free to type in whatever they want.

The problem is that the keywords/filters/tags/whatever you want to call them are dynamically created by the user. Thus, how can you organize them hierarchically?
