MobX 2013 conference will take place in Berlin, Germany on September 13, 2013. And although it is Friday the 13th, it sure promises to be fun. The topics on mobile user experience and usability will be covering pretty much every mass used smartphone OS out there – iOS, Android, Blackberry 10 and Windows 8. There will be talks about enterprise mobility, multi-device world and… designing for Google Glass.
In a cold 2012 December night yours truly got the idea of blogging about the things we all hate in a website. I tweeted asking my followers to share the things they hate the most about it. Some answered – like Bibiana Nunes (@bibinex) and Alberta Soranzo (@albertatrebla) did. Thank you, ladies! The world needs to know how awesome you are.
My former professor at b-school and principal at FatDUX, Eric Reiss (@elreiss), went further and offered to co-create the above list with me, and we so we did it together. Thank you, Eric! Your guidance and knowledge are incomparable.
“Usable Usability” has a story and stories. It is a guide through experience in combination of shared reference, something that we (the readers) understand, but not necessarily made a mental note when we encountered the same situation.
“Rocket surgery made easy” will guide you through identifying problems on you website, app or any product that is used by humans by observing the user experience
people go through while using it.
I must say that SlideShare is a great platform that offers good user experience in many aspects and in my humble opinion there only few steps that keep them away from “greatness”. I tried to highlight almost everything I saw in the document below. Please keep in mind that the screen-shots were taken before the overhaul revamping of the Sharing options design on SlideShare! However, a recent check showed that the problems I have described are still pending fixing.
