UX and User Research


  • ongoing work on tablet UI, android widget

Users in the House! I'd love to set up a dedicated time every week (maybe Wed from 2-4pm) where we can invite consumers and developers to chat with us one on one.

We can use any of the following research techniques - in-depth interviews, diary studies, think-aloud usability tests or designing with the help of the user (also called participatory design).
