comment What is the usual way to specify a GUI?
I'd kinda disagree (slightly). Communicating Design is a great book - but it's a book about deliverables/documentation. There are other ways to communicate design (e.g. when we work with other designers we don't generally produce lots of artefacts to communicate...)

comment How can I communicate linear progress through a series of states with color?
++ to @Alex's answer. Colour alone is not enough of a cue for all the reasons mentioned. Hue won't work well either. You're a designer. You're good at spotting hue differences. Most people are not.

comment using iframe in modal window good or bad?
So - why pop out? Does it matter to that particular user that they need to add an address? Is it a different flow to them? Could it be inlined into their existing process?

comment using iframe in modal window good or bad?
So the reason for the modal is that the add address sequence looks different from the flow that they're in?

comment How can I measure why users never return to a web app?
You said new users weren't coming back. If you test with users that are coming back you may not see the problem :-)

comment using iframe in modal window good or bad?
So the problem that causes you to think of a popup is that the "adding an address" UI looks different?
