comment Hamburger Menu - is it a good thing?
Facebook have since got rid of the hamburger menu in their app :) I think a better way of wording my thoughts on it are... "The hamburger menu is used as a dumping ground for things that people think the app needs". I think a lot of the time these can be removed from the app reducing its complexity and getting rid of the hamburger menu. As for complexity of the app. There are a few complex apps that Apple (and other people) have made and don't use the hamburger menu.

comment Is there such thing as “touchscreen-friendly” user interface?
Yes. For instance... The entire touch interface for Microsoft Office... Is NOT touch screen friendly. In contrast the touch interface for the iLife suite is touch friendly.

comment Would a 'Processing' indicator on pedestrian crossing controls be helpful - and if so how would it be designed?
Wish I could give another +1 for the interesting link.

comment Would a shake-to-scroll-to-the-top scroll view annoy users?
I find the same in iOS when I unintentionally shake during typing and get the "Undo typing" alert view. Happens a lot.

comment Hangman game on mobile - Qwerty or alphabetical keyboard
I was going to say exactly the same thing. For me I'd prefer a QWERTY layout. It would take me a lot longer to type using a ABC keyboard layout. However, my 7 year old sister would find ABC layout easier probably. How about a preference to set it either way?

comment Which button should get the focus at delete dialogs?
I think the rule is "The default selection is the confirmation of the user's action". i.e. if the user presses delete then the confirmation will have delete as the default. If the user tries to save over a file that already exists then "save" is the default with "delete there also". Either way it is the confirmation of the action that is default.

Thanks, I'll look into an icon over the status bar or something.

comment How to best show connectivity
Just another note on this. I was demoing the app to one of the guys at work. He asked me why it was downloading data when it didn't have a connection because the nav bar was red. The nav bar was actually green (he's red green colour blind). I definitely will be using something other than colour to display this now. :-)
