Things I found on the web this week (28th September)
This week: optimise your app for the new iPhone X, learn from an entrepreneur who failed twice but then succeeded, how design thinking, lean and agile work together in perfect harmony, how to design fantastic workflows for your users.
Here are the things I found interesting on the web this week.
// DESIGN THINGS
Vivienne Kay, UX Designer at Shopify, with helpful tips on how to make your forms and workflows easier to use and a better experience for your users.
A nice roundup of the four types of buttons and links. Make sure yours are following a similar pattern so you don’t confuse your users.
In case you have been hiding in a hamam recently, Apple announced a new iphone! Here’s how to optimise your app for the beautiful new screen.
// AGILE THINGS
In case you didn’t know, Agile is the only way for a startup to deliver a successful product. If you’re not following this approach with your development team (overseas or locally based), you’re doing it wrong!
Spoiler alert! “Design Thinking is how we explore and solve problems; Lean is our framework for testing our beliefs and learning our way to the right outcomes; and Agile is how we adapt to changing conditions with software.”
// STARTUP THINGS
This is a great story of one entrepreneur’s journey from being rejected by Y Combinator (twice) to launching a successful app. Be inspired!
// RESEARCH THINGS
Consulting with experts can help you improve your user experience. This article explains the difference between consultation and user research, how to do it and why it’s so important.
// VOICE DESIGN THINGS
For anyone thinking about expanding their app to work with Amazon Alexa, Google Home.
Compiled with ❤️ in Qatar
Every week I read stuff on the web that I think would help Qatar-based tech startups design and build brilliant products. I save up all the interesting things and publish them here, and send them out via tinyletter.com/jennyellenbrown
