Providing an out of the box mobile ux design to the users has always been the prime concern for every UI designer. The challenge of fitting in every component within 4-6 inch of the available mobile screen is huge. Since mobile UX design can really be tricky, here we shall discuss several attributes of a good UX that often lies in the mainstream and are very prominent. Display System and Task Status The users must be told on about the system operations with easy to understand system status appearing on the main screen at the certain period of time depending on the task operations. Find a Match Between the System and the real World Designers goal is to focus on the common language and concepts that users might find in the real world. Presenting your information in a logical order and carrying on to the user’s expectations obtained from their real-world scenarios will cut down the cognitive strain and produce a system that is convenient to use. User Interaction and freedom Make sure to offer users some space on your mobile UX design where you ask them to choose from move forward or go backward. This also includes doing and undoing an action. Mobile UX Design Consistency and Design Standards User Interface designer must take into the account the graphic components and the terminologies that are required to be maintained across other similar platforms. For an instance, an icon used to display certain category or concept must represent the same […]
Users of WhatsApp Web (the browser-based version of the app) were recently targeted with an image-based security threat where simply clicking an image could have hacked their accounts. A security vulnerability was present in WhatsApp Web and it was recently patched by WhatsApp. By exploiting this vulnerability, an attacker could send a malicious code (virus or malware) hidden within an image to their target. And clicking this image would let the attacker take control of the victim’s WhatsApp account and access all its data – pics, videos, chats, contact lists, everything. And by having access to the contact list, the attacker could send the same infected image to the victim’s contacts – spreading it to others and making this attack into some kind of a fission reaction – one infection leads to another and so on. The same security vulnerability was also detected in the browser-based version of another popular messaging app Telegram. Good news is, the flaw has been fixed for both of them. Points to remember: This security flaw does not affect the mobile apps of WhatsApp and Telegram. This does not mean that these apps won’t be affected in the future. Avoid clicking documents, images or links received from unknown numbers. If received from a known sender, ask them about what the content is about. Always use an updated version of mobile apps. Install a reliable mobile antivirus that can detect and block installation of fake or harmless apps.

Apple Inc.’s stock closed at an all-time high, surpassing a 2012 record as investors look ahead to new products such as bigger-screen iPhones and a wristwatch-like device that may jump-start revenue growth. Apple rose 1.4% to US$100.53, topping the split- adjusted record of US$100.30 reached on Sept. 19, 2012, just before the iPhone 5 went on sale. The shares have gained 25% this year. After rising more than sevenfold following the 2007 debut of its smartphone, Apple stock lost a third of its value in the year after the iPhone 5’s release on concerns that the company was running out of hit product ideas without co-founder Steve Jobs. The tenor has changed, with analysts estimating record sales for the next batch of iPhones, set to be released later this year. In June, people familiar with the plans said Apple planned to start mass production on two smartphones with larger screens, a response to devices from rivals such as Samsung Electronics Co. and HTC Corp. The stock’s rise shows investors are buying into the strategy outlined by Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, who has been prodded to introduce bigger iPhones, give more money back to stockholders and introduce new devices. Those shareholders are now getting what they want. In addition to the larger iPhones, Cook has vowed that Apple will enter a new product category this year. The company is said to be developing a smartwatch, and Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty has said Apple may sell as many as 60 million […]
