I just came across 37Signals' Sortfolio (http://sortfolio.com/),
which allows users to filter through portfolios.
It reminded me a little of Google's Fast Flip
(http://fastflip.googlelabs.com/), although that interface offers
minimal filtering and meets different user needs.
I'm interested in finding similar interfaces that showcase pages and
allow extensive filtering. Can you think of any more examples? (It'd
be nice if they were as well-executed as Sortfolio, naturally.)
It was a little quirky this morning. Even though it comes from three
architects at google, how is it different?
"*Popularity is useful, but has dominated search results so heavily that it
gets harder and harder to find the page you want, especially if your search
is a complex one.
Does anyone have any examples of web apps that use "HUDs" or "Heads-Up
Displays" to give the user feedback?
I'm talking a really light HUD here - basically a little rectangle that
comes up in the middle of the screen after the user completes an action,
says something like "Your widget has been deleted", and then fades away
after a couple of seconds.
The idea is to create feedback in the user's locus of attention rather
than somewhere else on the page where they might not be looking.
