ALWAYS DESIGN FOR THE USER, A RESPONSIVE SITE IS
USELESS IF IT ISN’T APPROPRIATE FOR THE AUDIENCE
IT’S EASY TO LOSE SIGHT OF THIS AND CAN BE COSTLY
THE BBC IPLAYERWEBSITE PROVIDES A SIMPLE AND
INTUITIVE INTERFACE FOR USERS
Article from and attributed to www.webdesignermag.co.uk
There are quite a few user experience
mistakes during the building phase for
a range of devices. These are mainly
due to still thinking from a desktop point
of view, when information can easily be
related and arranged to guide users
through the online experience, or it’s
because the design and build has
become too focused on what is
technically possible and lost sight of what
would be best for the user.
It goes without saying that the navigation
of a website is vital and problems here are
normally caused by the navigation being
The BBC iPlayer website has undergone substantial development over the
past year. This seems to been more of an evolution than a rebuild, and this
approach has led to a very well-considered solution.
The navigation is separated into two, one for global BBC
sites and one for navigatingwithin the iPlayer. This approach
enables users to switch between a range of BBC sites
seamlessly and reduces the amount of navigation items
required within the iPlayer navigation itself. Instead of
showing everything in a collapsible menu as the screen gets
smaller, the iPlayer navigation keeps the key items
immediately available, and even on small screens the
channel menu remains.
The slider section is available on larger screen sizes
including some tablets, it uses draggable touch interactions
as well as hover interactions when using a mouse. This is an
excellent example of the UI that considers specific input and
method support of the device or browser being used.
New interface, new experience complicated on desktop layout, and in
turn being extremely difficult to support
on smaller screens.
It is standard practice to switch the
main navigation to a collapsible menu,
but it is a good idea to keep the most
popular top-level links visible for as long
as possible. If the website has multiple
levels of navigation, a slide-in menu works
well and you can leverage swipe
interactions to make it easy to use.
Make sure that a navigation menu
containing lots of images that takes up
more than the screen area is avoided.
This ensures that users can always exit
the navigation easily. Additionally it is
important to keep any navigation icons
aligned with best practice symbols as
much as possible for user familiarity.
It can be infuriating for users when there
is an interactive element such as a slider
that isn’t draggable on a touch screen.
Instead of relying on button controls to
move information around within the UI,
make sure touch interactions are used on
the UI elements themselves.
This is much more intuitive for users and is always the
first thing they will try.
Any elements that have click events
bound to them should use a touch event
when available (for example touchend).
When a click event is triggered on a touch
screen the following events are fired in
order: touchstart, touchmove, touchend
and click. The time diff erence between
touchend and click can be as much as
300ms – this may seem small, but within
a UI it makes a huge difference in how
responsive the UI feels when using it.
When using a desktop computer, a form
with many fields is easy to digest due to
the space permitted by the screen size.
As screens get smaller, forms can get
unwieldy and difficult. This will impact
conversion rates of your forms, which are
core business drivers of websites.
To alleviate these problems forms
should be broken down into smaller,
logical sections and the progress through
the form indicated to set the expectation
with the user. Additional enhancements,
such as field prompting and location
lookups, can make the process easier.

  4. Le nom débile choisi pour l’agence par son fondateur, le voleur Ambroise Touvet est à l’image de son propre système perfide : Oblique, (se dit d’un regard qui ne fixe pas l’interlocuteur et laisse supposer un manque de franchise ndlr, pour ceux qui avaient des doutes).
    Sous un air jovial qui n’est la que pour masquer son incompétence, il vous promettra monts et merveilles. Mais, menteur par essence, voleur de nature, il n’a qu’un intérêt: se servir de vous, de votre travail, pour briller devant son groupe de petits enculés qui lui sert de public.
    Son agence de “photographes”, composées des reliquat de ce que les écoles d’art n’ont même pas voulus; tous adulés à leur maitre, comme des chiens puants, n’ayant dans leur portfolio que des photos ou vidéos téléchargées, volées au grés d’internet pour tenter un jour d’être au niveau d’Amboise, le roi de l’enculade. Aucune facture, aucune déclaration au fisc, tout au black, Ambroise l’escroc ose, comme il aime le dire, et parfois, réussi à gagner la confiance d’un fournisseur. Bien mal lui en a pris, ce dernier se retrouvera bientôt avec son travaille utilisé par ces connards de l’agence Oblique, même publié sur les réseaux sociaux en leur nom. Vous mais vous ne verrez jamais l’argent des promesses et contrats non honorés, il prendra un malin plaisir à vous demander d’attendre, arguant même que vous n’est pas bien tolérant, puis un an plus tard, bloquera toute communication, comme une autruche, se couvrant la tète, espérant que ca ira mieux ainsi. Désolé, Ambroise le pourri, ca n’est que le début.
    En lisant ce blog, Ambroise le truand se demande bien d’ou cela peut venir, tant il a de personnes qui le déteste, tant de personne qu’il a volées.
    J’espère sincèrement que cela vous fera réfléchir si vous devez un jour choisir un fournisseur et vous évitera de faire mon erreur de croire en Ambroise Touvet la crapule, ou a l’un de ses partenaires malhonnêtes; Fuyiez ce voyou, ne vous associez pas ce déchet,

  9. long form birth certificate should be able to resolve all of that. It contains the birth location of the child. AND the birth location of the parents.I agree, if one or both of the parents was born outside of the US (which has never occured before Obama), the the candidate should be required to show proof that both parts became naturalized US citizens before the child's birth.

  11. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive learn anything like this before. So nice to seek out someone with some original thoughts on this subject. realy thanks for beginning this up. this website is one thing that’s needed on the internet, somebody with a bit of originality. helpful job for bringing one thing new to the web!

  12. Just wish to say your article is as astonishing. The clarity in your post is simply great and i can assume you are an expert on this subject. Well with your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the enjoyable work.

  13. / Port regal is in near puerto mico, take the purple windlane to the next skyway. Be warned though…you will have to unlock the area through the main quest line and you will spend a good bit of time there. If you have to ask where it is you probably won’t have access to it yet :\\.

  14. Ativan…This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want�HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great st…

  15. I think there is some fat prejudice, though I think it is part of a wider body image/sexuality issue in our particular culture. I don't see that as being about privilege in the same way as your other examples. In my writing I want to avoid stereotypes about how women or men should look but I'd be loath to suggest that being dangerously thin or clinically obese is not a problem. As a Mum I am acutely conscious of the crazy messages we are sending our girls and, increasingly, our boys about body weight.

Our son’s board, shaped by Ryan Engle, fell off the wall with part of the surfboard rack just as we were leaving in Oct.

  17. Het ging mij om bloggen als een – sorry voor deze ‘koude term’ – vorm van distributie. Tegenover krant, tijdschrift, boek, cd, dvd, MP3, etc. Ofwel: wordt het blog in de toekomst dé norm van elke creatief of professional? Of zal het blog een vreemde tussenfase blijken naar geprefabriceerde sociale netwerken als Hyves, Facebook en LinkedIn? Dáár ligt mijn interesse…!

  18. Hi Debbie,These are the same type of questions I ask myself, especially when I'm going through something I'd prefer not to. What is God showing me/teaching me in this?Is this preparing me for something in the future?And of course, is this a consequence of my own choices?What a different and important perspective this last question gives me. And then to be able to see God's love and comfort despite what I've brought on myself.God bless,Laura

  19. Thanks for the good luck wishes. I think I may need them.Two chapters in, and already this is much harder work than any academic piece of writing I’ve ever done. And, oh, the challenges to the self-confidence! I think the Demon of Low Self Esteem is gonna have a field day with me on this one

  22. Yup. We've created an ever growing constituency who are always for more spending because someone pays for them to have more.here seems a notion that those of us paying taxes are losers since those not paying taxes also get benefits. Try this: you don't (let's say) drive a car, and yet you pay for the roads. You don't have kids in school and yet your neighbor has 4 and you pay taxes for the school system in your town…etc etc so what?

  23. I love seeing pics of the doggies, they’re so cute. Personally, I’d go with the cacaphony colorway, I think the brown makes it a neutral which would go with more things. I’ve been on a sweater kick, I finished my fair isle cardigan (except for putting in the zipper) and started a Tubey.

  24. Minnesota has a verbal agreement for a four year, $20 million deal with Darko Milicic! Very bad deal. According to the chart, Darko should have to pay Minnesota to play. This supports the theory that high draft picks get higher salaries and more minutes throughout their career, despite bad results.

  25. I precisely needed to appreciate you again. I do not know what I would have carried out without the entire tips shown by you over such a subject. It was actually an absolute depressing dilemma for me, but being able to view this well-written form you processed it took me to weep with gladness. Extremely happier for the advice and as well , believe you know what a great job you are always doing training most people all through your webpage. I am certain you have never come across any of us.

  26. Anonymous 10:05 to MaxDrei: it may well be undesirable that a patent can issue on the basis of a technical effect not perceived by the applicant. But equally I would like an opponent to be able to have a patent revoked for obviousness on the basis of a technical effect not perceived by the applicant. It is this latter point that concerns me more.

  28. Thanks Sean! I’m a new nurse and in my 11month of nursing and 3rd week of acute care/ general medicine. I am in over my head and keep getting told that more things are my responsibility. But then also told to delegate more. Between meds, assessments, changing patient conditions, palliative patients and families, I’m not sure what the very first thing I should do is. My team is the only way I get through it all. If ICU nurses and nurse assistants did not come to my rescue, I don’t think this ship would stay afloat. Thanks for your perspective!

  29. I am too upset to accurately express my deep thoughts about this absurd outcome.The racist disdain for black femalehood is highly prevalent and showing it's ugly head.Furthermore, I'm going to sit back and count how much support this black female will or won't receive from readers on this blog, especially some black folks.

  30. Needed to compose you that very little remark to thank you very much over again for your personal pleasing opinions you have provided on this website. It’s so surprisingly open-handed of you to provide without restraint all that a lot of folks would have supplied as an ebook in order to make some cash for their own end, chiefly now that you might have done it in the event you considered necessary. These creative ideas as well served as a great way to comprehend many people have the identical desire the same as my very own to learn somewhat more with reference to this matter. I think there are many more pleasurable moments in the future for those who looked over your blog.

  31. 潜俊儒2012 年 10 月 9 日梦宝谷版幻想精灵 区服:精灵之森 id号:90813 角色名:风林火山 我的想法:抓捕率似乎是今天更新又调低的.我在别的论坛也看到了.抓捕我觉得可以分阶级.普通怪高抓捕率.银冠金冠精英稍低.稀有低抓捕率.这样不至于玩游戏时天天在在空扔球.很容易疲劳而流失玩家.玩到40级不到就不玩的玩家可以说是一片一片的.不能其中有些是疲劳而放弃的另外现在3V3的战斗中.给自己方加群体BUFF太不稳定.有时候甚至放了一个技能,一个BUFF都没加上.(亲测魔布偶的顺风)建议调整成固定的比如2只精灵受益.虽然NPC也存在这个现象.但是毕竟我们是自己配的技能.而且跟NPC那无敌高的伤害也不能比.BUFF本来也是战斗的一环.群体控制技能也是.本来命中率就低.人品差起来的时候.显示是命中了.其实一个都没睡着.(亲测魔布偶的群睡)另外NPC现在伤害高的太离谱了.虽然有属性相克可以让我们去练相应的宠去对付.但是不花RMB去搞的话.练起来实在太费劲了.建议稍微调低NPC的伤害或者生存能力.

  34. I had no idea that memory isuses are not necessarily a normal part of aging whoa!My parents and my in-laws are, shall we say, pre-elderly (I’m sure they would just love hearing this!) and are capable, independent people.

Thank you.

Did any of you REALLY expect Palin to sit at home pulling her hair out while the Iowa straw poll was being conducted, Rick Perry prepared to launch his campaign, and Mercede Johnston was stealing her limelight by showing what a real Alaskan beauty looks like?Well then you must be new here, welcome to the crazy world of Sarah "Me, Me, Me, it's all about Me!"Palin.

  40. , I have no reservations with the “feel” of the shoe/peddle combination, but the numbness still has not subsided, or maybe a little with the passage of time. It’s interesting to note, that when I do wear them to commute, the sensation of numbness is reduced while I am wearing them, but comes back after taking them off. Go figure. I still am weary of wearing them for any extended period, and at this point I will revert to regular pedals with straps. I will miss that locked in feeling though.Thanks for your input. I appreciate your time.Sincerely: WWR

  43. Is it just me, or is every third feminist bookstore called “A Room of One’s Own”.I’ll never understand why Wicca is considered so much more feminist friendly than atheism. A lot of that goddess stuff is very gender essentialist, especially when put in actual historical context.Also, you can order a pretty wide selection of English books from amazon.fr; the shipping is just 5 euros to Switzerland and you don’t have to pay TVA.

That way we get our 2 weeks in the sun (abroad) plus we get a few long weekends away per year which helps pass the time until our next sunny holiday;-)As for the peeing in the night question…take a bucket to keep in the tent, saves the night time trips to the toilets and saves on using the washing up bowl!

  49. As always Chuck, you are spot on. It is unfortunate that the moral fabric of our country is being shredded from the upper echelons of government down to our homes and families. As Christians we can only ppray for a spiritual awakening and repentance to sweep through our land. Don’t stop speaking the truth. God bless.

  50. I have to show my thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this particular situation. Right after exploring throughout the internet and finding principles which are not beneficial, I was thinking my life was well over. Living minus the approaches to the difficulties you have resolved as a result of your main review is a critical case, and ones which could have in a wrong way damaged my career if I had not encountered your web page. Your knowledge and kindness in taking care of all the things was useful. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the specialized and result oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to recommend your blog post to anyone who requires direction on this situation.
