UX and User Research


  • see dev meeting notes for detailed breakdown
  • had meeting about readability; Matt drafting spec, madhava and stuart to follow up with platform


Android Sidebar Study Usability testing with new animations - using Samsung Galaxy S - talked to 3 non-smartphone, college-aged users at the Stanford Mall. Everyone found bookmarks and tabs, although two took about 6 minutes to find the sidebars. Everyone looked in the menu button, or the site button, so we have a UI fix that we're going to test next week which shows tabs and bookmarks in the menu view.


Summary below, full update here
