comment How to create a “non-linear wizard”?
Can you explain how the apps are inter-dependent? it seems that there isn't any dependancy between apps 2,3,4. Also, when you say: see how list perform in other apps (#2), or display list in other apps (#4), does other apps refer to one of these 4 apps? I'm not quite sure why you describe these as apps, they seem too small that I would call them functionalities/tasks rather that apps.

comment Datepicker UX showing Quantitative Data
@JayMann when I look at your first design above, I notice the darker boxes before the lighter ones, don't you? I agree, darker tones do convey higher values (I didn't suggest otherwise in my answer). When I look at your first design above I get a very clear idea of how busy my schedule is, but what I really need in order to complete the task in-hand is to see availability. It seems to me that I'm getting the opposite of what I want.

comment What is the best way to display a queue of items in a large space?
If you look at the mockup in the question, the 'up next' item is indicated with a green background and a label. Reading the question, I got a strong impression that order in important here.

comment What is the best way to display a queue of items in a large space?
@Darren they would start from the top left, but it would take some cognitive load to figure out the next item in the queue, especially if the grid was too uniform. I'm simply using scale to indicate direction and control focus to reduce cognitive load. Since this is a queue and not a normal grid of items, I think the 'up next' item does have certain importance. If I were to serve a queue of people (say in a restaurant) I would care about one person at a time: the next person in line.
