I code stuff with my bare hands.

(Like Papa Parse, GoConvey, binding, etc...)

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

I believe choices are a fundamental part of our happiness.

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.

@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).

Definitely the most direct and thorough answer so far about the actual UX! Didn't know about some of those little features they built in related to this.

Interesting! I guess apps have to support that kind of viewport sizing then. In my opinion, though, zooming the window to full the screen would be a bigger win than not having extra whitespace. Maybe it's just a matter of preference.

@DanielGibbs BetterSnapTool. It's slightly glitchy with multiple monitors sometimes but for the most part works pretty well.
