5 web design tips thanks to my new phone
January 4, 2012 - Geekiness
I got a new phone with my xmas bounty (Thanks Mum & Dad!) and it’s great. A Samsung Google Nexus S it’s an android dream with a curved screen and buckets of charisma (yes OK it’s a phone). The device itself is thus far a complete success – I love it. And it was half price in carphone whorehouse so a real bargain to boot.
But … (yes, of course there’s a but) …
Looks like the phone’s going unregistered then…
The web design tips I take from this are:
- If you’re sending out a link, send out the right link.
- If you’ve got a location-based service, estimate the user’s location, and provide a “change location” link in case it’s wrong.
- Don’t make form elements compulsory unless they really have to be compulsory.
- Don’t have server errors :-)
