comment Is it good UX to allow the user to browse a mobile app as a guest until they want to make a payment?
My take on it is that, as soon as you introduce a barrier to entry (and it could be as simple as a tickbox to proceed, up to a full personal data entry form) then not everyone is going to proceed past that barrier. The more complex the barrier the greater the drop-off rate.

I'm not sure why it's a dilemma. What would your rationalisation be for forcing users to sign up and provide their payment details before they've even been able to look at anything? If you go to a shoe shop does someone on the door take your details and credit card information before they'll let you through the door or even look in the window?

comment How important is the Q.S for cars for drivers?
I've no idea what Q.S. is here, but anyway it sounds like your best bet is to do some actual user research here, not just post on a Q&A site. You need to understand your actual audience - find out what they are actually after. We can only guess and make assumptions.

comment Whats the Best A/B Testing Module, or Other Workflow, for Drupal 7?
This isn't really a UX question, it's a request for drupal module recommendations. We can help you out with what sort of areas of a site to AB test, or whether or not an AB test is more appropriate than a multivariate test in a certain situation, but how you actually run the test isn't really in scope for this site.

comment What is the difference between a customer journey and a user journey
In order to have a Use Case you need to have your user journeys completed though. You can't create a use-case on its own without having something to base it on.

comment What is the difference between a customer journey and a user journey
User Stories are a separate, specific term ('as a X I want to do Y so that I can Z'). However, personally I would treat Customer and User Journeys as the same thing. Although everyone is a User but not everyone is a Customer, so it might depend on the situation.

comment Carousel - To have or not to have images on slides
I mean why do you say that text alone may convey they message more clearly? I'm just asking you to provide a bit more detail and reasoning. It's OK to have an opinion when answering questions, but really your opinion should be supported with the reasoning. "I think that X is the best option because..."
