    One thought on “Designed for Use”

    1. Excellent text that covers the whole arc of product design, from initial research to design to implementation to evaluation testing I probably wouldn t use every idea listed in the book nor need to , but there is useful content here both in terms of specific methods e.g card sorting and abstract considerations e.g features are not requirements , discoverability, and instead of interrupting, offer undo Very readable

    2. It s profoundly frustrating when products don t behave as ex expected Products with great usability on the other hand are a pleasure to use and have an easier time to create value for their customers.Designed for Use is the best book you can get about usability of web mobile applications It covers a wide range of usability concepts and research in a way that s very accessible even if your background is in so

    3. I spend most of my programming time working on the back end of systems but have been called on to contribute to user interface portions of solutions I ll admit that UX is not a passion of mine but I thought it would be wise to better understand the thinking that goes into creating a usable interface, so I picked up a copy of the book At the very least, it would allow me to better contribute in meetings when I get asked my opinion on which option I think is best.Much like the rest of the software [...]

    4. This is a very useful book I way, it s similar to Dan Saffer s Designing For Interaction albeit modern, perhaps that s why I ve skimmed through some of the chapters I m sure I ll come back to it later, though, to refresh my memory, because the topics it raises are important, and it s extremely well written.

    5. A good overview of the process of designing systems or websites in a user centered way and then testing them to uncover usability issues Chapters are short, easily digestible and mostly give a high level overview of a particular usability testing technique or design concept Experienced designers may find many of the principles and methods familiar, but it s good to be reminded of them from time to time also, the suggestions for further reading are extensive and enticing.

    6. This book is a fast read, and full of short chapters that lend themselves well to dipping into and out of.There s enough practical content here to start improving how you build products immediately, and is extremely accessible, enough pointers where to go for depth in a subject as well Great to refer to after reading through, for reference.Recommended

    7. A solid book that goes over theoretical and practical ways to improve the design of software products There s quite a bit on conducting usability studies, which I wasn t too interested in, but I m sure others will find it useful Overall, it s a quick and easy read that covers critical but often forgotten good principles.

    8. Very detailed book on how to build products that meet their users needs Loved how it is so very well organized Gives a clear idea of the meaning and need of each technique without losing losing sight of how it fits in the product development cycle.

    9. It s a good introduction to the methods used in UX It covers most of the techniques, together with tips and thoughts If you re interesting in knowing about working with UX this could be a interesting read.

    10. Very hands on So much that it even has example manuscripts for how to ask questions in usability tests Spanning basically the whole design process it covers many subjects, giving actionable advise on most Good, fresh examples with recent tech.

    11. A good book in a sense that it covers most of the people, principles and practices that you need to know It s like a UX dictionary It s pretty basic and probably won t be useful for your next project But it tells you what resources you can refer to in depth.

    12. Good insight about how to have a good design process to create a new product, mostly web based solutions.
