IWP40: UX Designer Jon Bell talks Common App Design Problems

Download

Right click “Save as…”

It's been a while since we've discussed building great user experiences for Windows Phone, so we thought we'd check in with designer Jon Bell, who works on the Windows Phone UX team. Jon's day job is designing the "communication experience."

Jon's made a lot of observations about the thousands of apps we see submitted to Windows Phone and had a lot of great points to share about what constitutes an outstanding app.

Here are a lot of other great resources to look through as you think about Windows Phone application design:

Windows Phone Official User Experience Guidelines

Jeff Wilcox's "Metro" Design Guide for Developers

Windows Phone Design Presentations

Windows Phone Design Assets

... and finally, a great piece by Will Faught on how to use the animated transitions in the Toolkit.

Questions?

  • I have a dream that one day Continuum transition will be added to the Toolkit/SDK/ROM.

    I have a dream that one day transitions in 3rd party apps will be as smooth as those in 1st party apps.

    Great discussion. Simple IS hard. It took me 6 published apps to finally "get it". Now I really LOVE making things as simple as possible.  Cool

  • @Kinnara: Yeah that is soo necessary. I hope it is on their charts!

    Larry needs to talk a lot less, please! Would really like to hear the person being interviewed speak without so many interruptions and diversions. Larry is making it very difficult for the speaker to get a point across, and very difficult to for the listener to weed out his randomizations to follow a thought!

    THANK YOU

    My thoughts exactly.

  • @luzi: Agreed.

    It's an interview, not a conversation.

    No disrespect Larry, good to hear your input, but perhaps when the interviewee has always completed his whole story.

    Watching this is actually getting annoying - the host needs to stop interrupting!
