comment Which text is more effective to encourage users to leave review for Android App
I agree with @MichaelKohne. Don't pop up the dialog. You will always interrupt the flow of the user, and they will always hate you for it. If this leads to more reviews, they'll be bad ones. You have to be more subtle about it. Find the point in your app's flow when the user feels good. When there's a break in their planning. Ie. choose a moment when they've finished something and feel positive. Then you can show a message. You still shouldn't pop it up, though. You could, for instance, find a nice neutral space in the home screen.

It's a Firefox feature for selecting table cells. Astonishingly, StackExchange uses table-based layouts. They should have an "optimized for netscape 8.0" button as well.

comment How do I best explain 3 ways to divide a volume?
@jgthms It's about what to do with the left-over space, I assume. The number of tanks is the same in both cases, but in the last case, the last tank isn't full. In the second case, this empty space is distributed over all tanks so that they all contain the same amount. So in both cases there would be 7 tanks.

comment Do users object to homepages which contain a full section consisting of a contact form?
Damn, I missed that part of your question. Well, most of these points don't apply to the full design, but I'll leave them up for whatever they're worth.

comment Screen size to start designing in Android?
@Rob This question is about where to start designing. You start with what the user sees in front of them. If you "design" your text size to be 18px, it'll look massive on my crappy phone, and unreadably tiny on a retina screen. You design how it should look, which is the physical size, and you figure out the technical details later.

You're absolutely right. I removed the last paragraph. The rest still holds whether you're making a site or an app, I think.

comment How to source the initial requirements for an app?
@MarjanVenema Thanks :) It's a lot like the way people use "moeten", you're right. Locking things down, instead of expressing desires. Very frustrating.

comment How to source the initial requirements for an app?
@Inlin Maybe you should create a new question where you give that as context. I'd say the document should reflect the kind of work you'd like to do (and expect to be able to do). If you want to work in Agile environments, I'd focus on doing lightweight user studies (informal, hallway testing, etc.) and creating a quick, living prototype rather than a dead document. If you want to work in more formal projects, you may want to focus on other, more strict methodologies, but most UX people tend to favor the Agile side of things.

comment How to source the initial requirements for an app?
@MarjanVenema Maybe it is a bit kneejerk of me, but requirements is a laden term. It does kind of imply locking things down, to me. I mean, if it's required, then we have to make it once it's in the requirements. And if we have to make it, it needs to be specified exactly, otherwise you can't require it of us. Anyway, you're absolutely right that I'm leaping to conclusions in assuming that's what's going on here. Please consider this as one possible answer among many (even if nobody else is answering).

comment How to source the initial requirements for an app?
@Inlin in that case there's probably some thought behind your assignment. Maybe your professor (or whatever) wants you to do waterfall-style requirements analysis. There are plenty of people who still believe in it, especially in universities. In that case, you should do as you're told to get the credit. And it may make for great project management. But I don't think it makes for good UX.
