I was working on an idea for a public wishlist web app that a user will be able to manage:
"New item" is an input field that gets focus by default. Right now when I enter "5th Item" and press Enter or click the green plus, the New item input cell moves down, revealing the new cell that was created. The New Item cell is thus like a "stamp" that stamps its contents and moves down. The user may later rearrange the cells to their liking.
My question is: Is it better to leave this "stamp" at the bottom of the list where it moves down when a new item is created or to put it at the top and have the list "come out of it"?
I believe the first approach would be analogous to a duck-tape dispenser while the second to an upside-down receipt printer. What's your opinion?
