comment Pixel Perfection in Development
Pixel perfection - especially in the web world as it is ttoday - is pretty much impossible. Different screen resolutions, different browsers, different html standards, webkit, different OSs, user zoom settings... It's impossible to get a UI to look the same on all devices. And why should it? Aim for the minimum viable product first, and then enhance it to get it closer to pixel perfection (if that is still a high priority). And besides; what is more important to be testing - functionality, speed, accuracy, validation.. or whether the headers are the right spacing from eachother?

Well in that case it's not a suitable question for the site as you're basically just asking us to give a review of the interface. That's not a question that can be solved, so you're bettter off trying somewhere like fivesecondtest.com instead.

We can't just give you a general review of your interface; we need a specific problem to solve. What is wrong with what you currently have? How do you know it isn't working? Is it a touch/drag UI or mouse operated? If you can explain your problem, tell us why this implementation isn't working (and how you know it isn't working) then we can give you an alternative that will address the issue. But without explaining what the issue is we don't have anything to solve here.

comment “Device in use” phrasing
How do you know that any of these phrases are any better than just saying 'device in use'?

comment Which gets more interactive: QR code or shorten link?
Why not use a full URL? Just set up a 'vanity' URL for the promotion. Something like www.your-company.com/superpromotion and have that as a 301 redirect to the actual full URL. The issue with short URLs and QR codes is that the user has no idea what it is they're clicking on. And that's a security risk (whether you intend it to be or not).

comment How to show remaining time?
Would there only ever be one answer to a question? Why do you need to basically 'check it out' in order to provide an answer? Thinking of another Q&A product (Stack Exchange) there is no need to check out a question to answer it because there is no restriction on the number of answers that can be left.

comment Designing for Android (with zero Android experience and no Android device)
Can you narrow this post down to one specific question? This is a question and answer site, not a questions and answers one. We need individual questions in order to give a single answer. Otherwise this post is too broad to answer.

comment Do all screens need headings?
I wouldn't say this is an HTML question though, so it is a suitable question for here. It's more about content structure and organisation that happens to refer to an HTML tag, which of a suitable topic.

How do you attach a label to each radio button though?

comment What's the deal with the “Shake to send feedback” on Google Maps for Android?
Why ask here instead of on the Google feedback forum itself? You'll get an actual answer there. Here you'll just get assumptions and opinions.

What works horizontally does not necessarily work as well vertically. Finger touch area is different for a start. Horizontally you have the whole width of the button to work with, but vertically you only have the height, and the height is smaller than the finger press size. Meaning you'll end up touching two options at once. Plus you'll be covering up options because your hand will be in the way.

I'm not sure this would work for 7 items in a row though. Not on a mobile.

This is probably valuable advice for desktop size screens too, not just mobile.

comment How do I indicate field name after multiple drag and drop on the same screen?
Yes, it's quite unclear what your UI is about. What is the text that you can click to enter? What do you mean by Image / Label? How are the images related to the text that you can enter?

Why wouldn't the whole thing (text label and button part) be selectable on desktop size too?
