Lessons from Usability Testing
You’ll learn a ton of things watching how people interact with your product. Chances are it’s nowhere near how you intended it to flow. Maybe they love a feature/concept, that almost didn’t make it. Maybe they are stuck and maybe they can’t figure out the navigation.
Nothing is more important than clear navigation
Findings from the Usability Tests
- Search by Cusine and Refine can be combined into one.
- Regular Registration or Sign with Facebook/Gmail was confusing to most users
There is no such thing as a finished product. Contexts and circumstances evovle. Things and people change. Your product is a living and breathing app that exists because it solves an issue. If issues or needs change, your product needs to change too. Change is constant.
