Usability testing on the cheap- Silverback, ?

Hey all, I'm doing some research on different tiers of usability testing,
and I love the new Silverback app that Clear Left just put out (
http://www.silverbackapp.com/) as a potential lower-end solution (we already
have partnerships in place for the high-end services). Are there any other
apps like Silverback out there? What do you guys use?

Usability testing at a user conference

Our Marketing dep't wants me to do "usability testing" at an upcoming user conference -- a gathering of our software users. The conference's purpose: for users to improve their software skills and to learn about upcoming product advancements.

I proposed a card sort, because it's low-tech, relatively quick, and needs little setup. This meets y needs (I have something I need sorted), but does not meet the conference goals; it won't help users improve their skills or learn about upcoming product advancements. So it got lots of thumbs down.

creating temporary one-way mirror?

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone ever turned a regular clear glass window into a one-way mirror?

I'm hoping to change a big window between two conference rooms into a
one-way mirror (for use during usability testing). It doesn't have to be
perfect, just mostly functional.

The catch is that I only have approval to do this temporarily.

related information) is really appreciated:

- What are some of the companies you might recommend that are
selling these devices?

- What is the average cost?

- How easy or difficult is it to set up and use the device?

Thank you,

Finding fabulous fares is fun.

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?
