comment Are these $ symbols awkward for UX on Who Wants to be a Mil… parody that's titled Who Wants to be an Expert?
I think it's more awkward that the numbers are not right aligned. Whether it's money or points, it will be easier for users to see the increases in value from one to the next with adjusted alignment.

comment Does the average user understand the median?
Don't use median and call it the average - they have different definitions and you would confuse people who do know the difference. If you want to exclude outliers in a dashboard, just put a tiny subtle note somewhere on the page to indicate that.

comment Date input on mobile devices
Actually, no! Selection technology has advanced significantly in the last year :) Both Android and Mobiscroll have since updated to use a scrolling style selection method, so you can scroll the wheel until you get the number you need.

comment Android: Back Button Only vs. Extra Navigation
I think that's Samsung's Touchwiz themed Messaging app. Definitely not the native version. Facebook is using a wholly different (and increasingly popular) sort of side navigation. G+ uses the side-nav as well. There's definitely no consistency within the operation system, though, since the guidelines are just guidelines. Clearly each product team in Google has their own opinions on UI implementation.

comment What is the UI/UX term for in-view content “jumping” up/down due to changes out of view?
"annoying"? :-)

comment Why provide multiple resolutions for Android?
Important to note that multiple image options mean each display type gets the best resolution for its density. My MDPI images are tweaked to make the best use of the fewer pixels. A source image may be high resolution, but trying to cram it into fewer pixels leads to some smooooshing.

comment Denoting a tab as being “unsaved” in a web application
This!! I really hate this type of settings layout that doesn't either autosave or just have ONE save button that clearly saves all my changes (labeled 'Save All Changes', of course). I get paranoid that changes in other tabs were not saved. Alternatively, is there a reason to keep them separate? phpdev, you say that each tab can be considered independent, however, they all contain profile settings that I tend to appreciate seeing on one screen.

comment User friendly language for notifications?
Why does the list need to be rearranged weekly? Why does the user have to initiate it? Can you not just keep the time of last refresh in your settings file and automatically refresh the list when the user loads the app/screen/whatever once a certain amount of time has passed?

comment Ran out of space! Where do I position a language switch button?
If switching to a landscape orientation is a possibility, you would have space to add another button. Alternatively, with the given interface, "Help" is where I'd look for that sort of thing. Do you expect the language to be changed a lot?

comment Android: Action bar vs. Toolbar, Spinner vs. Dropdown
My assumption was always that they wanted the new terms so that specific details and functionality would be recognizable. Everyone knows what a "toolbar" is: a bunch of buttons in a row. But a "context sensitive action bar" is a distinct subset of that category with clear, defining characteristics. Same with spinner and picker. Perhaps a case of a square being a rectangle, but a rectangle not being a square...

comment When given the choice on a website; are people more likely to download the app or keep using the browser?
I'm with @BenBrocka - I never have and I probably never will. Nielsen says apps are better now and sites will be better at some magical point in the future. That's probably true when everything is equal (i.e., you already have the app downloaded). But users are on the mobile site right now and installing an app and then getting back to whatever they were looking at in the app takes time. And time can definitely cost you customers.
