RE: [IxDA] Is there a formal UCD process?

Hi Alice,

Last year I published a paper titled "User-Centered Design, Activity-Centered Design, and Goal-Directed Design: A Review of Three Methods for Designing Web Applications."

The paper gives an overview of each method's foundations, processes, and key deliverables.

I'd be glad to send you a copy.

UI Library for Web Apps for Touch Devices

Hello All,

My team was researching on UI libraries for designing a Web app for touch devices specifically the iPAD, iPhone and the Android.

One product we landed upon was the Sencha Touch that provides the look and feel which makes web apps look native on the Apple iOS and the Android touchscreen devices.


I was wondering if anyone has any experience using this framework and if you can share the pros and cons of using it?

Designing for iPad

Hello everyone.

I'm designing my first application for ipad and if anyone has got any interesting articles on 'designing for ipad' kindly share it with me here. I would also be very happy if you would share what kind of tools (for both Windows & Mac) you use for preparing wireframes and mockups, specially when you are designing for iPhone or iPad.

I like the job postings, even though I'm not looking for a job. Makes me feel wanted.

Re: [IxDA] New rule for posting jobs

Re: [IxDA] New rule for posting jobs


Still, as an eager participant, I find the overall dialog useful – if not inspiring - but the job postings are as annoying as they are misplaced.

People looking for jobs know where to go.

So, I ‘d have a two strikes rule.

People know what they are doing.

A hybrid prototype — the holy grail of wireframing

After reading through Zaki Warfel's Prototyping, I hoped it would shed light on the most effective techniques.

Bulleted lists for web page content: readability

Has anyone out there done any research on the readability of web page content that is formatted mainly with bulleted lists?

I thought I had seen some research studies on this (which I can't find now for some reason), and I know there was a move a few years back which recommended using bulleted content for quick scanability. I personally find the content more difficult to understand with all those bullets, and if it is not in a normal paragraph format.

What are your thoughts? Thanks!
