How critical the placement on your users' engagement? Interesting #ABtesting by #zeebox via @TheNextWeb http://ow.ly/w261r
Anthony Rose is co-founder and CTO of zeebox, the social network for TV. So, you have a mobile app where there are more pages or sections than can fit on a mobile screen at ...

I don't understand what "user engagement" means in this context. Time spent in the app doesn't directly translate to user engagement. If the "study" would say that, say, 50% of the users never opened the "Guide" section, then yes, clearly the side drawer is bad. 

And anyway, it seems to me that a user should be able to figure out how to navigate the app after an update, if the app is truly useful.

i don't trust company's and i was wondering why. i also wondering where you guy's get the strength and energy to be there. do your work. What is it? i have a deep respect for you guy's but i would turn into a monster, scare everything with my speed (i'm a damn fast thinker and i got it how to slow down to improve myself.) and i would hurt others because i'm annoyed if people claim or pretend to be stupid.

i remember a situation a employee told me she was so frustrated because i told her boss exactly the same like she did and he listen to me but he won't listen to her. And i remember my time as employed designer. i felt like the expert and one day my Creative Director told me i shouldn't use the glass for my watercolors and he was telling me how bad i am (i was drawing green androids). i have a deep respect for him as designer but i have no respect at all for him as human being. rude, freaky and selfish guy and at least very sick soul. he was sick actually.

so as freelancer i go into this meetings and i care about all: the employees, bosses etc. and i feel like a doctor. listening to all the pain they had in the past and its my job to fix it.

if i would be in your position i would burst, getting a very serious sickness in my soul or something very very bad to me. how can you manage that? Well, i'm lucky. they hire me and each minute is money so i don't have that anymore but i'm wondering how you guy's can take it to be a tiny weel in a big system which is maybe against you and is using your energy like it wouldn't matter.

I currently can feel exactly what you express in your lines. Even small companies stopped taking care of their employes. Employes are resources, not humans. That makes me frustrated enough to look around for new responsibilities...

sometimes im annoyed by people with a loth more degrees than me but they dont do good job and they earn less money. or maybe more but they work like machines. (read it again)

go to a montessorischool. you will learn one magic thing: help yourself to get done what you want. i can read this between the lines in any article about google is hiring. im not surprised.

i guess the only question at the end will be: what do you want?

i want to be where i am. i reach my goals in a good timeline and my resume is telling a colorful but succesful story without any degree. i decided working would be better than a degree because after a degree there is no garantuee for a job like this. if sometimes you dont get wat you want its just a fail. if you try it again and get it - you are good. and if its before your time is gone - excellent :)

my biggest lesson was: set a time for a goal like "2 years for rebuilding my business."
 
This was an article about a student who switched from electrical and computer engineering to a major in psychology. She said she just found the former too difficult and would focus instead on a career in public relations and human resources. “I think this student was making a mistake,” said Bock, even if it meant lower grades. “She was moving out of a major where she would have been differentiated in the labor force” and “out of classes that would have made her better qualified for other jobs because of the training.”

Sometimes the less abilities a person has the farther they make it in life. They tend to work harder and more responsibly.
In both my trades I outperform others with a degree all the time. Goals are a big factor in my success.

it will be only useful for ipad owners and my whole family got ipads so my guess is there won't be an android version.

This looks absolutely awesome !
Implementing a design can be a pain in the ass without goods specs and this looks like a very good way to generate them automatically.

Kompetente und ehrliche Beratung. Kein schnickschnack nichts aufgeschwatzt und genau hingeschaut. Mit ein paar guten tips bin ich auch nach hause gegangen. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Die Auswahl an Comics ist nicht schlecht jedoch ist alles recht überteuert. Wer weiß was er will sollte lieber selbst im Internet bestellen. Importiert wird mit saftigem Aufschlag die Freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiter ist mäßig. Ansonsten aber ganz OK man kann gut und gerne stöbern.
