In a mobile app that I am currently developing one of the first things I do is secure a shortlist of the user's interests. This kind of input is not unusual - I recall seeing something similar in sites & apps such as Pinterest. My own experience with being made to do this has been one of impatience at being shown multiple screens. At present I have opted to squeeze everything in my, rather limited superset of choices, to one screen:
My question - is there a commonly accepted view on what provides a better UX here. The options I guess are:
- Cram everything on to one screen (as I have done here)
- Require selection from a vertical scrolling list
- Use a paged display with the superset of choices broken up into more logical categories
One of my concerns with the latter two approaches is that the user cannot see their prior selections once they have scrolled/paged. OTH with the "cram everything" approach fat fingers are liable to cause annoyance.
Or perhaps there is another entirely different way to do things?
