Should we have testimonials, from UX clients and candidates, on our website homepage?

Hello All,

At Bestica, nation's leading User Experience staffing company, we thus are in the process of revamping our website to convey our value proposition better to the UX community at large.

Thus, we were wondering if having testimonials from our clients and candidates on our websiite homepage be helpful to instill trust to the UX community in our services, or if it wouldn't really have any major affect to the viewers coming to our website.

Your kind suggestions on this matter will be highly appreciated.


Best Regards,

A Letter from the President of IxDA

Dear IxDA Members,

Thank you for your ongoing support on the IxD Discussion list in 2005
and in this quarter. You our members, have made this list one of the
best online resources for discussing issues concerning the evolving
practice of interaction design. Your interest and passion fueled our
decision in October 2005 to take the next logical step of beginning the
transformation from a simple mailing list to a full-fledged non-profit
professional organization.

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?
