Guidelines for support documentation for apps

Hi Gurus!

I am currently starting to work on creating a pleasurable user experience for support documentation for an app. This app has versions that run on an iphone, android, mac as well as a windows OS. 

Are there any guidelines or specs for creating such documentation? 

Any light that you can shed on this will be very helpful.

Creating High Fidelity Prototypes for Desktop Applications


I'm a design student looking for recommendations for an application/software (or any other method) that would allow me to create a high fidelity desktop application prototype for the purposes of demonstration and testing. Unfortunately I can't code :(

Right now I'm using Axure but it's got it's limitations since it's best suited for web and mobile.

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!!

Your Application Looks Like Poo

I've been wrestling with this and I thought I would put it out there and gauge some opinions.

At 360|Flex I presented a session directed at application (Flex) developers aimed to inspire them to improve their application design skills.  It was part inspirational and part instructional as I went through basic design principles they should be aware of.

Fitts's law: Speed and Start values for common devices


I am in search for the average start-stop and speed values for common devices like mouse and use of fingertip.

Fitts's Law: MT = a + b log2(2A/W)

the values I am in search for are a and b in the formula. Exlanations of the Law can be find everywhere, but almost all state that a and b are device-dependent and can be determined experimentally. Instead of setting up a valid experiment straight away I would like to ask if somebody already has determined the values for common pointing devices.


Thanks in advance,

iPhone Design Metrics

Hi All,

I have been digging in on a big iPhone application project for the
past couple of months and having a blast. During this time, the
company I work for has also been working hard to develop a set of
metrics to help measure the value of UX within the organization. Last
week I was asked to contribute by researching / proposing a set of UX
metrics specific to the iPhone.

I have spent some time digging around various posts, threads and
articles this past week and there are seems to be a vast number of
approaches and opinions to UX metrics in general.
