Usability Talk on April 11th: From Search to Discovery

Cambridge Usability Group is pleased to announce a free talk on April 11th (6.30pm)

Tony Russell-Rose: From Search to Discovery
Search user experience has come a long way from just a simple text input field. Faceted search interfaces have become standard on most e-commerce websites and search results help guide users to related and featured content. But how and why have search interfaces evolved so much in recent years?

Animation & Motions in Mobile User interface

I'm working on a project that has to do with Animations and motions for the mobile. I've gone thru the principles of animation by Disney and a lot of content on User Interfaces and Animation but have not really found any resources that are completely or almost completely dedicated to animations for mobile. Anyone aware of anything in this context? Would be a great help! Aditya

Junior Interaction Design MeetUp

I am a junior interface designer living here in Dallas Texas. I just recently lost my job in telemarketing for social media, in which I really didn't like, I tried reasoning with my company about interaction design but they wouldn't hear me out. I would like to start an organization that mirrors the values of ixDA's principles, yet targets the younger demographic. I would like to educate high school students about interaction design creating youth clubs and fostering an interest early. I'm hoping to get collegiate students interested as well to gain more colleagues in the industry.

Can an iPhone App control a radio tuner via a dock?

Hi everyone!

Just had a quick question regarding the capabilities of an iPhone. 

To what extent can an iPhone connected to a dock control the external device that hosts the dock with an iPhone app ? 

For example: Lets assume I have a radio which also has a dock to mount the iPhone. Will it be possible for me to create an iPhone app that can control the radios tuner?

Would be really really helpful if someone can clarify the extent to which an iPhone can control an external device through a dock!

Thank you in advance!!

Android UI Overlay Project


I'm a young graphic designer who recently made a theme for hacked Motorola Droids. While doing this I realized I didn't have nearly the creative freedom that I wanted, but also that the stock Android OS is really...really ugly and rough around the edges.

I'm curious if anyone would be interested in starting a team to make an overlay (entire new UI with set of system apps) for Android handsets and tablets. I don't code, but I know Android apps are coded in Java.

Specs for usability lab

Hi, all,

I've been tasked with getting together specs for a usability lab that one of my clients is building. I'm thinking a standard three-stage lab with a relatively large participant room for group testing, if that ever comes up. But I don't have specifics yet. Has anyone out there done this before? Any advice?

Search interface design and usability

I have to do a presentation (at very short notice for a job interview)
on improvements to a search interface for clinical data. Does anybody
know of any useful resources that focus on the design and usability
of search interfaces. Thanks
