  • Posted to Show DN: Called it! - Make social predictions and prove it when you're right, Oct 15, 2015

    Hey folks,

    My partners and I just launched Called it! for iOS and would love your thoughts.

    Called it! is a fun social app for making predictions and getting well-deserved bragging rights when you totally nail a long-shot prediction.

    • Make predictions about anything with a super slick composer. We'll send you reminders when these are due.

    • The app sends daily questions on topics you care about which serve as a quick way to make predictions on current events. Once you've chosen an answer we'll show you how your outlook compares to the crowd. We'll also automatically track these predictions for you and let you know when you get them right.

    • Every prediction lives at a unique landing page which makes sharing to other apps a breeze. This also serves as everlasting proof of your prediction.

    • Follow friends and visionaries alike to see their predictions. Start a conversation on controversial predictions or toss a "good call!" to those you agree with.

    • Get predictions right to earn points and level up.

    As a designer all I see are the rough spots, but we're already seeing big adoption in a lot of markets and things are really starting to snowball.

    Grateful for any thoughts, ideas, or feedback the community has.

  • Posted to Why Users Miss Form Buttons Placed in the Action Bar, Jun 04, 2015

    I should add that the solution I'm most fond of is to put the submit button in the top-right but to also duplicate it inline as a standard button below the form. In these cases It's critical to ensure consistency in icon & label so that users don't think these buttons perform different actions.

    So this makes a lot of sense in some cases but the article doesn't even mention the fact that the keyboard will be up while filling out a form. Is the author suggesting that we stick a persistant sticky submit button on top of the keyboard? It creates all sorts of problems.

    It's crazy how easily you can get 400+ hp out of the n54. JB4 tune, ER intercooler, intake, chargepipe, pe exhaust mod, diverter values, better oil cooler, catch can, alpina transmission tune, m3 wheel + paddles, misc. coding, carbon all the things.

    Have been drooling over the M4 but it's 100k in Canada without carbon ceramics so pretty steep. Considering a used SL65 due to the level of depreciation and sheer ridiculousness (with aftermarket warranty of course).

    Heavily modified 335 cabrio. Mileage is getting up there so considering moving to something else before the hydraulic roof or turbos explode ;)

    Really digging the level of absolute control with Origami vs other mobile prototyping apps. Can't wait to give it a whirl.
