comment What is the best way to display an icon for removing the row in a table?
Why don't you use a checkbox + separate remove/delete button to support group action?

comment Creating an extremely detailed user Journey Map
One idea is to make the journey in the shoes with different characteristics (personas). For example the extreme planner, the "best price chaser", the impulsive buyer, etc to cover in the target group.. and try and map out how each type of user perceives each step in the purchase flow and from there formulate what design tweaks should be done to improve overall UX.

comment Why Android places the Back button on the left?
Here's a study on the subject. Figure 7 shows how button layout should be mapped for right handed use.

comment Are the majority of Mobile Users familiar with the meaning of their platforms' “share / action” icons?
Since there's no established consensus on which icon to use (each platform use their own plus switch their own icon every so often) I'd be careful using the icon solely. This of course also depends on the target group and how experienced they are.

comment Using funny error messages in Finance
Looking at the financial and banking profession it's not usually the forum for humorous elements. Coming into work with "a funny shirt" for example is not as acceptable as it would be in other professions. So I would be very careful trying to do so here.

comment What is easy to perceive? Width or height?
Looking at it from a biological point of view I'd argue that humans have a more fine tuned ability to compare sizes in a vertical orientation. And why is that? Well, we can quite easily move on a horizontal plane without difficulty, meaning that if we see food somewhere on a horizontal plane we simply have to move over there to get it, no cognitive registration what so ever. But when we see food somewhere up in a tree we have to judge whether we think we can make the climb or not. Therefore I'd assume that humans are more capable of judging vertical distances rather than horizontal.

comment Group (page) navigation: Buttons together or apart
Why have you decided to add these next/previous buttons? Are you sure they will actually bring anything to the table? Maybe they just make the control look more complicated? I think actions such as those can be justified if the content is very low and very predictable, like "Yes" "No opinion" "No", a list of different groups sound less predictable and only providing a list that a user can scan would probably be all she'll ever need.

comment How do I decide whether my app needs a landscape mode? Is landscape mode good to have as a best-practice?
So it's a communication app? I assume it is since you brought up WhatsApp as an example. Would be nice with some more context.

comment Should free text search result in a result list or in an “article”?
@Chris as far as I know it's because the framework doesn't support it, and that adding it would be too expensive. I do definitely agree though that auto suggestion would be preferable.

comment Should free text search result in a result list or in an “article”?
Yea, that's basically what I have now, a grid of items with an abstract (short introduction) of each result. My main question was whether it would be a good idea to in some instances lead a search action directly to the page for an item (like Wikipedia). But I agree that this causes inconsistency and confusion and should be used sparsely. Thanks!

So basically, you "show the actual result in the result list", the list is a list of results rather than a list with links/titles of results?
