I like to make programs and devices smarter and easier to use. I experiment with new, brilliant interface concepts, data structures, and algorithms. I'm a programmer, web developer, and a Mormon.

comment Do material design's floating action buttons provide a bad UX?
@PaulS When you press a piece of cardstock on a surface with your finger, the other sides raise up (unless the material is perfectly flat, which most aren't). That might be one way to explain the raised shadow.

comment Why the textfield in Google Material Design without box
@André Interesting; my handwriting stays above the line even when letters have a hanging base. Maybe it depends on the person's style.

comment Make people understand they can click on a button in a flat design
@VinceCgto When a cardstock piece of paper is laying on a desk, and you press on a corner of it with your finger, the other corners pop up, away from the surface.

comment Street address confirmation
@O.R.Mapper I agree. Ideally, the fields that are displayed on the form (and the order in which they are displayed) should be determined by the country that the user selects. Where multiple countries are accepted, we recommend putting the Country field first. Whether using Method A or Method B, the address still has to be formatted according to country.

comment Street address confirmation
@Crissov ZIP code does not unambiguously determine city and state in the US. However, I share your sentiment for the single, combined address field. It just requires a good address parser. (Shameless plug, SmartyStreets does this.)

comment Should subscriptions with a pre-pay model charge overage or renew early?
Typically, no, overage is extra, for example: algolia.com/pricing -- and no, let's suppose service disruption is not an option (I think I said this in the question, let me know if I am misunderstanding you or need to be clearer).
