    I know this is a tiny thing, but I had to stop using Airmail because their undo is soooo slow to action for snoozes etc. Apart from that I preferred it to Spark in every other way

    My needs for a font manager are very few, but I really like Typeface. Has a few really nice design considerations, like overlaying the baseline and x heights over the fonts, and having a shape/size compare for when you're tossing up options.

    Hi Jahit,

    What I've found to be one of the most useful starting points for user research, is by starting with a list of assumptions I have, then seeing what the best ways to test those assumptions are.

    This can be surface level "users will understand what this icon represents without a label", to deeper product intuitiveness "users will understand the mental model of the product on the first land". Both would have very different questions – So without knowing more what you feel are the "constraints" of your product, it's hard to give good advice on the question types you need.

    That aside, some general advice for good questions. Be very careful with language used to not lead the user to their answer "do you think this feature is great, yes or no?" and although quantitive answers are useful for trends when you ask a decent size group, open ended questions will tell you the most about user frustrations. Golden question for this is "if you could change one thing about X, what would it be?".

    Hope this helps.

    So the bottom nav is a symbol which has the icon and label as other nested symbols right? How are you selecting a nested symbol and deleting on the fly? Or is the bottom nav just a horizontal stack of 5 symbols?

    Yeah makes sense. Now very curious - what display do you have Marc? Bet you have a pretty mean setup

    This is exciting news, but curious - how many people here have a Mac Pro? I don't do video work, and think the new iMacs would suit me just fine

    I don't know any designer that updates their site as regularly as Frank, let alone does such a nice job each time.

    I'd be interested to hear about your experience getting UX work in Auckland - is the best way to reach out on your contact form?
