SXSW iPhone App interface disasterby Mark on 23/03/2010
Rouge Ameoba (Mac software workshop) has a great write-up about the usability of the my.SXSW iPhone App.
I was baffled by this particular interface controller:
At first it looks like a radio button, resuscitator but it doesn’t make sense becuase there is no other choice. You might even fear tapping it, as there is no way to uncheck a radio button unless there is a second option. The perfect Catch-22 situation.
But if you tap it, it reveals it’s actually a checkbox which modifies its label! Just imagine being part of the support staff: I know it sounds stupid, but if you want to attend an event, tap on ‘No’..
