We were pointed to http://www.mobiledesignpatterngallery.com as a source of inspiration and asked to pick out 3 relevant ideas.
|How about this for a home screen?|
- This roughly matches my idea for a home screen.
- It might be better to split search from capture in the way notification and search are split here.
- Use of colour and icons is good, even if the colours themselves are a bit insipid.
- The numbers against the icons could represent documents stored against a tag for me.
- Could be good for listing tags and the documents belonging to them
- Limited number of tags across the top but could swipe
- Scroll down documents
- We already had concepts of place and time in the original design
I thought this might do for the search results :
- Icons would be tags allowing you to filter the search
- Would anyone use it?
- Techies love search driven sites.
- Users only use Google.
- Is it better than the foursquare screen, which could be adapted to the same job
- Is the overlay too big, although what's underneath isn't what the user wants to see?
Answers on a postcard please
- Do users use the search in a mobile app? They don't use site specific search on the web.
- Is swiping and scrolling going to make users of the tabbed screen seasick?
