  9. 9. “Follows the path resistance” of least - Jan Massie How this trait is reflected in my UX design: Donʼt interfere unless you have to If your app can do it, do it It pisses me off to leave an app to perform a task to come back to the app How many buttons do we actually need? Thursday, July 15, 2010
  10. 10. Limitations Application Programmer Interface - APIs A programmer to a designer lesson: You’re only as good as your APIs It’s really bright when you’re trying to sleep. You have to leave the app on, to work. Can’t link to data in some native DB’s, like the Calendar would be nice. Hardware Battery - Query weather all night, or only before the earliest alert? Antenna - Out of coverage = Our fault or not, we fail the user if there is bad weather Thursday, July 15, 2010
  11. 11. UX Decision Finding the location Started as only a zip code entry field Added a GPS button next to the zip entry field Wanted to move the GPS check to the front of the app, during boot-up Compromise was to show the current zip code on boot. Final - Went to Yahoo! to grab city name from zip to display Thursday, July 15, 2010
  12. 12. UX Decision Button Layout Action v Cognitive Action On/Off at the top = Fail How many buttons do we actually need? Feedback: No sun? Always waking with an image, or not? Thursday, July 15, 2010
