Not just easier. Also a lot more efficient and more importantly: more effective. +1

comment Should I code my own numeric keyboard? It's bad UX?
@DA01: the layouts for phones and calculators may be different, but the one in Android phones is the same in all Android phones, the one on calculators is the same on all calculators, etc. So, there still is a "standard" layout to stick to depending on the platform you are targetting.

comment Digital association SEPA bank account (Only Europe)
I wasn't talking about the way Paypal is doing it. Paypal can check because of the information it uses in the transfer. What you want to do seems to want to use something already present in the account - without having to make a transfer. You would have no way to know whether the information they provided (the number inside the account that you talk about) was the correct one or not. Not unless it was public information and if it is public information, it doesn't say anything about ownership of or access to that account.

comment What is the difference between a Product Designer and a UX Designer?
@MattO'Keefe Product Owner is just a role that coordinates between business and developers in a software product setting. Product Manager and Product Designer indeed have a lot of overlap, although I'd say that the product manager takes care of the business aspects of deciding what features to build and takes an otherwise very high level overview of the features, whereas a product designer would get into the nitty gritty details of product design.

comment Is there a best practice for allowing support rep to login to a user's account?
GoDaddy uses a PIN number - you can enter it in your account. When I call support I have to give my PIN number (proving that I can access that account) before the support rep can access my data - ie the support system used by the reps uses the pin as its means of authorization to access my data.

And how would you check that number? If you can check it, it is publicly available and it proves nothing, certainly not ownership.

comment How to indicate that new item was created but is not visible in a list
Jira does this as well when you add a new issue that doesn't match the filter criteria for the board or search page you are on. It says something like "Created issue [link]. It is not visible because it ..."

comment Is top navigation an accepted pattern for mobile devices?
+1 Great answer. And I love the "This is probably more realistic" picture. As a user of the original Samsung Galaxy Note - my first (and only) smart phone - I never understood single handed use...

comment Replacing all interaction in a complex UI with a single input field: Do successful implementations exist?
+1 Yep, the fact that the Google search bar works is because its primary use is also basically its only use: search. The fact that you can use search to do a whole slew of other things (like starting a timer) most of these can in fact be seen as specific searches (converting currencies, translating) and augment rather than diversify the use of that input box. (Oh, btw, I am a developer/programmer and I abhor command line interfaces - OP addressed the main concern though: remembering, by auto completion/hinting)

comment Should the index page have the sign up page or login page?
+1 Though bear in mind that many users will have "remember me" turned on (I'm an exception to this on most sites), so will hardly ever run into the frustration of hunting for / navigating to a login page. That said: the less frequently you use something important, the more it needs to be obviously available.

comment Do users want to be asked about analytics collection?
No people are not fine with anonymous data collection these days. If they were there wouldn't be such an outrage every time someone disclosed that such and such was doing stuff like that - and it even was in the 200p long TOS. People don't like being spied on. Full stop. They'll suffer it if what you have to offer makes it worth their while enough.

comment Why did (ecommerce) registration rate go down at checkout when we tested social login buttons?
Have you considired that people no longer trust Facebook (and the like) as much as they did. They may be ok using those accounts for social stuff, but not for their purchases?

comment What do you call this input element where a focus will automatically be transferred to next text field after being filled?
@Graham: I used to "be with you" on this but it depends entirely on the implementation. In fact many inputs for serial numbers nowadays consist of separate boxes yet handle a paste into any of them graciously and split the string from the clipboard over the boxes. They also handle backspace etc correctly, and many handle correcting single characters - even at the "edges" graciously.
