Ask DN: Thoughts?

almost 7 years ago from , COO at Phaistos Networks

Here’s an axiom: “Everything is improvable”.

Millions of people use apps everyday to perform all sorts of tasks. Unfortunately, all of those apps (one way or another) have UI flaws.

Those flaws have collectively caused much pain and frustration.

What if there’s was a way for Designers to provide their take on those UI flaws?

What if designers would attach a (one) specific UI flaw (in popular apps) every week?

I am sure this, in the long run, would prove helpful, both for the vendors of those apps, but also for us using them.

Does such an undertake sound interesting to you, or is it just me daydreaming? :)

    How would you define "design flaws"?

    Is it something that irks you, or something that doesn't fit with the OS design guidelines (for mobile)?

    How would you go about implementing these fixes? There are tons of designers that redesign applications, but those changes are rarely implemented as there are tons of legal issues around using work of non-employees.

      I fundamentally believe all thins can be improved.

      With that said, you can translate flaws as implementations worthy of spending time to improve them.

      What I am suggesting, is a way for designers to suggest and submit their takes on popular UIs.

      If those will be accepted by the vendors, that's another story.
