View behind the mobile screen: 3D dissection of a golf app user interface.

The red warning flag is normally hidden by the frame above. If GPS reception is bad, the flag is rotated into view. 

#usability  question: 
Why is this better than a simple bar indicator used for GSM reception?

1. Because the UI is not cluttered when reception is ok.
2. And if location is not precise enough, the animation of the red flag easily catches the user's attention.

+Dani Estermann I don't think the problem is the flat/non flat design.. It's more about guidelines...
The bottom buttons looks great on iOS, but on Android, users are used to see them in the top part of the screen (no need for a full ActionBar in your case, but that's where people will look)
I also wonder what is the "power button", but I really don't know your app.

Animations looks great and the design is really well done

#WWDC 2014: Bei der offiziellen Ticketverlosung hatte ich kein Glück. Gestern Abend dann die unerwartete Wende in Form einer persönlichen Einladung. 
Einmal im Leben muss doch jeder iOS-Entwickler ins kalifornische Mekka pilgern :-)

Live Input-Validierung während der Eingabe des neuen Apple-Passworts. So macht der von BSI und Fedpol vorgeschlagene Passwortwechsel sogar halbwegs Spass ;-o

Waiting for my tigerline golf app to be reviewed since 8 days now. Is there a correlation between Apple's innovation speed and their review times??

Vergleich zwischen iOS 7, iOS 6, Android, Windows Phone und Blackberry:
http://www.pfeifferreport.com/v2/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/iOS7-User-Experience-Shootout.pdf

Etwas krass ist der Vergleich des "Cognitive Load" ausgefallen, hier fällt Android extrem ab. Ganz nach dem Motto: Mehr Features = weniger verständlich.
Dass man beim neusten iOS 7 ab und zu etwas mehr studieren muss als beim Vorgänger, deckt sich mit meiner Erfahrung. Das liegt sicher teilweise daran, dass ich mich an iOS 6 gewöhnt hatte. Aber nicht nur.

You have a carousel on your website?
Then have a look at this article: This approach promises that more users go beyond the first content page.

Sind Tutorials beim ersten Start einer App sinnvoll oder nicht? 
Ein kurzer "walk-through" kann bei neuartigen Apps helfen, die Erwartungen an die App in die richtige Richtung zu lenken. Eine Bedienungsanleitung (z.B. zum Erklären von komplizierten Gesten) sollte das aber nicht sein. Diesen Entwicklungs-Aufwand würde ich stattdessen eher in die Usability der App stecken, damit es die Anleitung gar nicht braucht!

In anderen Worten:
"Don’t make your users feel like they have to study in order to use your app.  Create an interface that is simple and usable and that doesn’t need any instruction".

Google image search now has inline previews - well done (even if others say it's copied). What I am now missing though are the links for "Similar images" and "All sizes".
