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.

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. :-)

If the app was my own I would agree entirely. As it is I've managed to get down to this from previously having an "offline mode" where the user has to restart the app to put it into "online mode". The spec is now that the user has to know what state the app is in all the time.
