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.

comment Using radio buttons responsively
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?

Removed suggestion to contact via PM. Such functionality does not exist, and this is not a social network / forum so would be inappropriate anyway.

comment using facebook for signup on mobile / practical experience for downsides
That is the example they give. The point that you shouldn't ask questions where 'every answer is equally as valid' means that questions should only be asked where there is only one 'correct' answer.

@timpone that very page you link to states that you should not ask questions where "every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?”".

comment Where is the threshold between loading custom and browser loading buttons?
You don't get a choice to use the browser tab loading icon - that's a browser feature. You can't disable it so that you can put an in-page one in instead. I'm not really sure what it is you're asking here.

comment Phone calls tracking: is it a good idea to replace the phone number by a CTA?
Just because you may have some analytics against a phonenumber that doesn't 100% guarantee that people are using it in the way you expect. People may open the link on a PC so they can input the phonenumber on their mobile manually, or may copy-and-paste the number to store / send it to an email, or may just want to look at the number to see if it's a free one or not. Not everyone who looks at a phonenumber wants to call it there-and-then (if at all).

comment Phone calls tracking: is it a good idea to replace the phone number by a CTA?
This question reads like: "Should I hide the phonenumber that people actually come to the page to find so that I can get more accurate tracking?". I guess it depends what is more important to you - actually getting customers to use your service, or just acquiring some tracking information. Personally I would never sacrifice usability just to help the marketing team get better stats.

There are a few useful questions on this site around similar situations. Particularly naming conventions of buttons (i.e. use verbs for buttons) ux.stackexchange.com/questions/35210/… ux.stackexchange.com/questions/9946/…

comment Slider control when there is no maximum value
I like this idea (number 2) for the clear usability aspect of it. But as a result it does reduce the UX I think (It's always a balance between usability and experience!) but perhaps there is a happy medium somewhere. Some custom buttons perhaps, something that can be tried out in design rather than wireframe. I'll look into it I think.
