Design For Mobile conference, April 20-22, Early Bird ends March 7

The 2009 conference is approaching, with topics ranging from academic
to theoretical to incredibly practical, from user research to

Testing usability of mobile applications


I'm planning on usability-testing a S40 application, and would like
to hear about the ways you tend to test usability of mobile
applications. Paper prototype is always an option, however, is that
all you do, or do you test with real devices? If so, do you capture
the input some ways, possibly with a software or a camera, or do you
just watch the user use his mobile?

How to handle clients...

...that are making suggestions to the structure of a website that are bad and will screw everything up?

I'm currently working on a project for a smaller website (with a tight budget). I've done a couple of workshops and have had some discussions with the clients project group to come up with a working information structure for the site. Everything came together and we agreed on a structure.

Re: Error messaging best practices


37signals' Design Not Found archives might be helpful here. Lots of good
(and bad) contingency design examples.

For my part, I think delivery depends on the nature of the error
messages. If you're only showing one error that's easy to remember, find
and correct, then a simple dialog box is sometimes enough. Multiple
errors though (like blank required fields) are more elegantly handled by
annotations on page.
