iPad UI Design


I am currently working on an iPad UI for a charting application. It involves various options of displaying and playing around with Charts. A good example would be:


I thought, would try collaborating with some designers who have already worked in iPad or other tablet related apps who can guide me in the right direction in terms of how to better create a user-experience on the iPad.

"Designing for User Experience" Poster

I'm a firm believer that "UX" is a verb- not a noun. It's a process, and I believe that if documented and followed correctly, it's a process that anyone can have a reasonable amount of success with. As professionals, we need to shout these solutions from the rooftops- not keep them as guarded secrets. To that end, I've outlined my personal process when designing for user experience and compiled it as a poster for your office wall.

Microsoft Products - What sucks and what rocks...

Hi all,

I haven't posted in a while, but read through posts everyday. That said.

I will have an opportunity to sit with a few of the UX and UI Designers in an interview.
Because some/many/most of you are using Windows and some/many/most of their software I would like to cast a net and see how you all feel about some/many/most of their products.

What bugs you?
What makes no sense?
What really sucks?
What's really good?

This is for any tool in their arcenal !!! Any product !!!

Brand new type of interface! The tongue!

Slashdot.org has passed along news that the University of Electro-communications has created an artificial, Internet-enabled tongue. You manipulate a control with your tongue, and a paired control somewhere else mimics your tongue's movements inside someone else's mouth.

There's also discussion of Ubuntu's new user interface, which seems to have suffered from the rush to put out the latest version of the linux-based operating system. One user claims "Ubuntu is doing a great job throwing away years of UI experience." Ouch.

language translation vs. international sites

Just wanted to get some opinions / experiences on this matter:

Our client is based in the U.S. has about 10 or so International sites in the respected domains, in addition to the .com U.S. site. On the .com site there is a fairly hefty drop down menu to change your site. Now, they also want to add a google translate bar to their U.S. site. The international sites are not mirrors of the US site, but they are specific to their world brand and events. I'm not very familiar with any international/languages best practices and was just curious on some outsider input.
