Do you want to increase the user ratings and reputation of one of your Series 40 apps and, in turn, increase your downloads or sales? This webinar will present helpful design tips based on real Series 40 applications. UX expert Jan Krebber of OCT03 will identify issues with the design of user interfaces and other real-world aspects of the user experience. Then he’ll propose specific ways to resolve them. To submit the UI of a Series 40 app for evaluation and use in future UI clinics, please send the app to webinar.experts@nokia.com. If your submission is selected, the evaluation will be free of charge, and Jan will discuss the results with you privately before we examine them in the webinar. (Professional reviews such as this typically cost around 1,000 euros.) This is a great opportunity to get ideas for improving your application. We have limited resources available for these free reviews, so we’ll accept requests on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Use a square launcher icon for WebApps. 6 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux
  • Do not rely on red and green color coding. 7 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux
  • Ensure a good contrast also for non- selected items. 8 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux www.snook.ca

  • Clean sweep 2: Move buttons to a different list. 10 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux

  • Clean sweep 3: Access history setting by tapping the graphics. 12 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux
  • Instead of pop-up lists, use lists in a new view to avoid scrolling. 13 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux
  • Give Search its own view and add a “back path”. 14 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux

  • Buying and taking advantage of new ships and weapons is not clear to people. 29 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux
  • Ship navigation is difficult and sluggish. 30 © Nokia 2013 Nokia Asha UX clinic September 2013.pptx 2013-18-09 Jan Krebber @krebbixux
