4-rules-for-intuitive-ux

This is my advice on improving the UX of your designs WITHOUT hours of user research sessions, paper prototyping playtime, or any other trendy UX buzzwords.

(Seriously, search “design thinking”. 0 results. Nailed it!)

Who’s this article for? I’m looking at you:

  • Developers. You created your own app, but every time someone downloads it, they struggle to use it. And you know if they’re telling you this, then it’s really bad.
  • Graphic designers. Looking to make the transition into digital, but trying to learn UX by reading articles online is… a very painful way to die ?
  • PMs. Your job is already like 25% UX designer. Would be nice to level up those skills.
  • And the hustlers. Anyone working on digital side projects nights/weekends. This one’s for you too ?

If you’re already a UX designer, I don’t expect this article to go over super well with you. I’m basically skipping over entire chunks of our field in favor of focusing entirely on the single most lacking skill in aspiring UX designers (or UX-adjacent folks who find themselves designing screens).

I call it “speaking interface”.

When I started as a professional UX designer, I was shocked how many times my clients would hand me the initial wireframes (or the living, breathing, in-browser MVP) and there’d be completely obvious UX mistakes all over them. I’m not talking about things you need hours of research and A/B testing to discover. I’m talking, like, dead simple mistakes.

For lack of a better example:

Now my clients weren’t this bad, but look - you don’t need to be Bret Victor to understand that if you can only select ONE thing from a list, you need RADIO BUTTONS, not checkboxes. To understand that, you just need to be able to speak interface. And that’s the craziest thing to me. Interface fluency is something anyone can achieve. You don’t need college, you don’t need Lambda school, yadda yadda.

Frankly, you just need the presence of mind to (A) pause every single time you’re confused or frustrated by some app, (B) verbalize what about the interface makes you confused/frustrated/etc., and then (C) figure out how you could avoid that specific snafu that in your own designs.

Rinse and repeat that non-stop and you’ll be a pro in no time.

What I want to talk about today is four little rules that will help eliminate these pain points in your own designs. They’re the heuristics that are a level or two deeper than “use radio buttons if the user can only select one thing”. But, if you can remember to obey the things in this checklist, you’ll be that much closer to creating designs that your users can use easily right off the bat, freeing up your time for other, more important things.

(That’s when the other UX designers can lecture you on the newest academic user research methodologies!)

Here’s what we’ll be covering:

  1. Obey the Law of Locality
  2. ABD: Anything But Dropdowns
  3. Pass the Squint Test
  4. Teach by example

Any questions? Let’s dive right in.

1. Obey the Law of Locality

Put interface elements where they affect change.

All else being equal, you should put the elements in your interface near where they affect change. This is because, when a user wants to make a change to the system, they will unwittingly glance at where that change will happen.

So, let’s say you have a list of things. Where do you put the “ADD A NEW THING” button?

law of locality in playlist illustration

Q: Well, where does the change happen?

A: At the end of the list.

Great, put the button at the end of the list.

WAIT. You’d think this would be pretty simple. But there’s a temptation.

The temptation is to just put it where we have space for it.

For instance, if you have a menu, maybe you’d think “We have a menu! Why not just put it in the menu!?”

the law of locality violated in a music UI

The answer is, of course, because users won’t look for it there.

(And the ultimate answer is that having a place where “we just put things” will ultimately render your app an unusable mess that people will abandon the first chance they see a half-viable alternative)

Don’t think I’m joking. Have you ever noted this interface?

the law of locality violated in evernote's interface

An equally-bad/common alternative is to just take a solution that you’ve seen applied by A Respected Tech Company without any thought as to if it makes sense for you. “We need an ‘Add’ button? I’ve seen one of those. Hold my beer!”

the law of locality violated with a floating action button

Look. Another button in a place users will never look for it. To compound things, users will suspect this button actually adds a new whatever-is-currently-displayed-on-the-big-blank-white-space. Because that’s where the control is.

Your users want you to follow the Law of Locality.

So, now that we know it, let’s use it.

the law of locality in a list of music playlists

Bam.

But maybe you’re a born UX designer and you always visualize what happens when there’s 1000 items instead of 5 and you realize: there’s still an issue here. If the user creates a TON of playlists, this button will disappear hundreds of pixels offscreen!

So maybe you could anchor the button near the bottom of the list, but have it always be visible, no matter how many hundreds of playlists the user has created.

the law of locality in Spotify's UI
For bonus points, (1) use the inline button UNTIL it’s about to go offscreen, and at that point switch to the anchored solution and (2) make it more visible than Spotify’s button, which took me months to notice while I haplessly right-clicked individual songs to add them to my playlists!

Brilliant! And this is what Spotify has done.

Another possibility is to say “Hey, we can’t reliably and consistently show the button at the bottom of the list. Where’s the nearest logical place to put it?”

And the answer is, (I think pretty obviously) the top of the list.

the law of locality obeyed in Spotify's UI
I wish.

Sacrebleu! This is actually just what Spotify-competitor Rdio did, before they were acqui-shut-down by Pandora.

Reconstructed from memory (like all reality, if you think about it)

The lesson here is clear. Never sell your company, and always always obey the Law of Locality.

(There are actually 3 laws of locality, and “Put UI elements where they affect change” is only the first. If you’re interested, read more here)

Next!

2. ABD: Anything but Dropdowns

Any time you feel tempted to use a dropdown, ask yourself if one of these 12 controls is better instead.

One non-obvious lesson of UX design is that dropdowns are pretty much the worst control.

3 dropdowns to specify one simple date
Welcome to hell!

They’re not always bad, but you’re working against the following:

  • Dropdowns take too many clicks/taps. One to open, a few more to scroll around to the right option (on mobile), another to select the right option, and (on mobile) another to close. (Compare to the single click use-cases of many of the options listed below)
  • Dropdowns don’t show you the options! You have to click into them to see the possible values, and on mobile, you can often only see a couple at a time.
  • Long dropdowns are ridiculous to navigate. A country dropdown for an app used worldwide could have 195 countries. At some point, almost any other method of asking a user their country would be quicker than having them scroll through a dropdown (“Smoke signals?” AGCKKHKGH).

This is pretty straightforward, so let’s just cover some examples for the various major cases of dropdown replacement.

If you’re choosing between 2 options…

We already have some fantastic options for allowing users to choose 1 of 2 things, all of which (A) show the options right away and (B) require fewer taps/clicks.

For questions to which there is no “default” answer, and either might be picked with roughly equal frequency, try a segmented button.

segmented button instead of dropdown control

If there is a “default state” that corresponds to “Off”, try a checkbox. A checkbox is also good for settings that don’t affect change until the user presses Save or Submit.

checkbox instead of dropdown control

Similar to the checkbox is the switch, which is good for changes that should apply immediately.

switch instead of dropdown control

Checkboxes and switches only make sense when there are two options. However, the following controls make sense for 2 to roughly 5 options, so you might try some of the following instead.

If you’re choosing between 2–5 options…

We covered segmented buttons above (and they apply here too) but it’s worth mentioning that when there are more options, vertical segmented buttons allow even more flexibility of answer length.

vertical segmented button instead of dropdown control

Radio buttons are similar, but particularly useful if you need to display a couple sub-elements for each choice.

radio button instead of dropdown control

For detailed displays of just a few choices, cards are where it’s at.

cards instead of dropdown control

One trick I like is displaying visual options literally.

visual options instead of dropdown control
Tesla likes it too, apparently.

If you’re choosing between many options…

When there are enough options that scrolling through them is annoying, consider a typeahead control. It’s like a search bar that shows top matching results as you type.

typeahead control instead of dropdown control

If you’re choosing a date…

Picking a date from dropdowns is the worst. If I ever do this, then I’ve really failed as a UX designer.

don't use dropdown controls for choosing dates

But what do you use instead? Well, it depends. First question: what type of date are you picking?

  1. Poisson dates. Dates most likely to be in the near future, tapering off as you go farther into the future (or nearer to the present), e.g. date of an appointment you’re scheduling, date of a flight you’re purchasing
  2. High-variability dates. Dates that have a similar probability of being anywhere in a wide range of time, e.g. date of birth, day-and-month of your birthday

(Yes, I named “Poisson dates” after the mathematical distribution ?)

For different types of date-picking, you should use different controls.

chart of poisson vs. wide-range dates

For Poisson dates, you want to make it DEAD SIMPLE to pick dates in the most common range (e.g. for scheduling an appointment, it might be the next, say, 14 days). It’s perfectly OK if picking dates outside of that range is a little tougher.

A calendar control fits the bill rather well for Poisson dates. If you know the date to-be-picked is most likely in the next 2–4 weeks, you’re golden.

calendar control instead of dropdown control

Rather creatively, Google Flights defaults to you selecting a flight roughly 2 weeks in the future, which is perhaps an opportunity for confusion (“I didn’t choose this!”), but probably a better date to default to, and closer to the hump in the Poisson curve.

Google Flights defaults to hump in Poisson distribution fo flight dates

Date text inputs are probably the best option for high-variability dates, where (A) there’s no reason to favor any date over another, meaning (B) all options will be equally difficult to select.

date text input instead of dropdown control
Remember, input[type=date] is your friend… on desktop, at least

If you’re choosing a number…

Numbers come in all kinds of flavors, but you’re most likely to be tempted to use dropdowns when you’re dealing with counts - e.g. the number of tickets, the number of people, the number of rooms, etc.

How often do you need 1 ticket? Plenty.

How often do you need 10 tickets? Not so much.

How often do you need 10,000 tickets? Is this some kind of cruel joke?

For counts of things, you’re also dealing with Poisson distributions, and should use a control that biases towards lower numbers - like a stepper.

stepper control instead of dropdown control

For wide-range numbers (like, say, SSNs), you weren’t going to use a dropdown anyways… I hope.

So can I ever use a dropdown?

Sure.

Remember, they work OK when…

  • Users rarely need to change the default value
  • There are very few options - e.g. only 3 will be visible on the default iOS control
  • The user is not on mobile (whereby many of these problems are mitigated)

The particularly observant among you may have noticed that the Google Flights interface I lauded above actually has three prominent dropdowns!

dropdown controls on google flights
Brilliant detail: on mobile, the ‘Economy’ dropdown is removed.

They actually do a great job with this. The potential usability issues are swiftly mitigated with:

  • Custom controls that show all options on tap (including on mobile) – and replace 4 dropdowns (for Adults, Children, and Seated Infants and Lap Infants) with 4 steppers in a single dropdown.
  • Removing the “Economy” dropdown on mobile
  • Few options and smart defaults for each control

If you want to print this section out and stick it on your wall, I’ve created a printable cheatsheet of dropdown replacements.

Anyhow. Let’s move on.

3. Pass the Squint Test

If you squint your eyes, the Most Important Thing should catch your eye first - and the least important elements should catch your eye last.

Pop quiz: what does a user need to do to use this page?

(NB: I’ve blurred it out so you have to go by gut instinct, but it’s a data entry form, to give you a hint)

blurred out version of a train ticketing ui

My best guess is two things:

  1. Check any applicable checkboxes (??) in the yellow area
  2. Press the blue “Submit” button

Did you guess the same?

Wrong and wrong.

train ticketing ui violates squint test
  1. The “checkboxes” are actually very small numerical text inputs. (If you already read Anything But Dropdowns, you know Poisson numbers should be steppers)
  2. The Most Important Thing (“Find Options” – which is a very confusing way to say “Submit”, by the way) is gray and unnoticeable. A much less important thing (“Help”) is immediately next it, but bigger and more visible.

The Squint Test says the Most Important Thing must be the most visible thing. What’s the MIT? The ticket textbox (or stepper ?) controls and “Submit” button.

If you make it past this page, the next page is even worse.

blurred out version of a train ticketing ui

What will you click: gray button the left, or identical gray button on the right?

Hope you chose left!

train ticketing ui violating the squint test
In rushing through this form, I actually clicked ‘help’ first. Oops. My second time on this page, I clicked ‘Go Back’, having processed there was an ‘Add’ and ‘Go Back’ button, and in the other 99.999% of (left-to-right language) websites, ‘Go Back’ is always on the left.

Again, when I squint my eyes and look at the design, I can’t tell what’s important.

Like the Law of Locality and Anything But Dropdowns, the Squint Test is a fairly simple law to enforce. Here’s like a 30-second wireframey redesign.

wireframe redesign of a train ticketing ui to pass the squint test
In a real redesign, I’d also want to consider allowing the user to specify number of tickets ON THIS PAGE. But that’s another law for another time.

Does it work?

blurred out version of a train ticketing ui wireframe reddesign to pass the squint test

You tell me. Four radios and a button. And a tiny little link below it.

I’m not trying to pick on AlaskaTrain.com. You see this kind of stuff all over.

Here’s the signup screen for my beloved recommendation-based social network, Foursquare (blurred, of course).

blurred out foursquare ui

How do you actually submit the required data? (i.e. the Most Important Thing)

Hint: it’s hidden in plain text in the upper-right corner.

foursquare ui redesigned to pass squint test

But Foursquare is just following Apple’s design standards here. Unfortunately, violating the Squint Test is a tradition even among industry leaders.

ios calendar app failing the squint test

One way to find the Most Important Thing is to consider what percentage of pageviews will involve a certain action. Here’s flashcard/memorization software Anki analyzed in this way.

action frequency analysis of Anki UI

For every 100 flashcards I view, I will then go on to…

  • Show the answer (approx. 95 times)
  • Navigate back to the list of decks (twice)
  • Start adding cards (twice)
  • Use some other feature (very rarely)

This sort of analysis really hints at what kind of interface would work better here.

  • Emphasize the most-commonly used functionality (at first approximation, “most used” equals “most important”)
  • Deemphasize, hide, or remove the less commonly used functionality
wireframe redesign of Anki UI to pass the squint test

Now this is just a start (I’d want to see if users understood that the unlabelled plus button added cards, for instance). But with just a couple simple heuristics, we’ve reduced a cluttered, confusing interface of 10 UI elements down to just 5. A reduction of… check my math here… 50%.

For more on the Squint Test, check out my YouTube video redesign of the Timezon.es web app. Or, if you don’t have 10 minutes, here’s a scannable, illustrated blog post with the same step-by-step redesign.

4. Teach by example

If you’re introducing users to new concepts, a few examples can be worth 1000 words - which your users wouldn’t read, anyways.

We have a weird tendency to try and explain things in words when examples would be much clearer.

Consider the new startup Teeming.ai, who recently reached out to me to ask about their homepage design. Headlines on the page read:

  • “Teeming takes the isolation out of remote work
  • “Teeming helps with remote team building” as well as “learning, problem solving, having fun, and motivating each other
  • “Teeming and video for synchronous [communication]
  • “Works with all your favorite video platforms

But here’s my question for you. What does Teeming actually do?

teeming.ai UI doesn't teach by example

It’s tough to tell. I know it has something to do with… good vibes for remote workers? But I have no concrete idea how it would help me, so I wouldn’t otherwise try it, recommend it, etc.

(Sorry Teeming, you know I ❤️ you)

Next, let’s look at IFTTT. Maybe you already know what they do - in which case, pretend you don’t, and try to figure it out from these headlines on their homepage:

  • Automatically light the way for the pizza delivery guy (Dominoes Hue)
  • Post your photo anywhere and see it everywhere (Instagram twitter)
  • Make your voice assistant more personal (Google Assistant iOS Calendar)
IFTTT UI teaches by example
IFTTT UI teaches by example
IFTTT UI teaches by example

You don’t have to list too many examples to paint a decently clear picture: IFTTT hooks apps together to do things they couldn’t do alone.

The crazy part is, if you visit their homepage, they first explain it in text:

IFTTT helps your apps and devices work together in new ways. IFTTT is the free way to get all your apps and devices talking to each other. Not everything on the internet plays nice, so we’re on a mission to build a more connected world.

YAAAAWN.

My question: which gives you a better idea of the app? The examples, or the description? ?

I think it’s the examples. The description only resonates once I see a few examples of how it can help me.

The description of your complex new app/feature only resonates once I see a few examples of how it can help me.

But examples aren’t just for landing pages. Here’s what you see when you first sign into project management tool Basecamp.

Basecamp UI teaches by example

Rather than seeing a totally blank page, you see two obviously pre-fabricated example projects that teach you, by example, how the whole app works (and also gives you an idea of what the tool will look and feel like when you’ve been using it a while).

Seriously, I can browse through fake chat logs by fake users discussing fake file uploads and fake to-do items.

Basecamp UI teaches by example

There’s even a friendly… mountain?… telling me I can watch a 2-minute explanatory video about this sample project.

And thank you, Mr. Mountain, for the lead-in: providing videos showing usage is another way of teaching by example! Not only does the sample project model teach by example what my projects will look/feel like, but the video teaches by example what it looks like to use the software.

Brilliant.

If your app allows users to create something, a showcase is a great way to teach by example just what’s possible.

The beloved painting app Procreate won an Apple Design Award, the App Store Editor’s Choice, the App Store Essential awards, and John Gruber called it “groundbreaking”, etc. – and yet none of this is as viscerally exciting as seeing what you can create with it.

Procreate gallery UI teaches by example
This ain’t no ordinary painting app.

Whoa.

That’s no MS Paint.

The showcase is a powerful tool for making it clear just what’s possible with your app.

So: if your app does something new and unfamiliar – or relies on new and unfamiliar concepts – you should get acquainted with the ways of teaching by example. The moment you realize that you’re introducing users won’t have seen before, you should start thinking: how can I give an example to make this clearer?

The moment you realize that you’re introducing users won’t have seen before, you should start thinking: how can I give an example to make this clearer?

In review, my favorite ways of doing this:

  1. On any page that tries to get the user to use a feature/app/etc., show examples of what they can do with your tool
  2. Use the “first load” experience to provide sample data, showing by example what the properly-working app will look like
  3. Strategically inject help content (like articles, videos, or tooltips) inline with the feature that show how to use it
  4. Does your app allow users to create something? Include a user-submitted gallery of examples to spur imaginations

Make sense? Let’s call it a day.


Alright, that wraps things up.

    like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you can do with some percent to
    force the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  10. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a
    quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

  11. Hey! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same
    niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on. You
    have done a marvellous job!

  12. Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your web site,
    how can i subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped
    me a acceptable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear concept

  13. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed!
    Extremely helpful info particularly the last part 🙂 I care for such info a
    lot. I was seeking this particular information for a very long time.
    Thank you and best of luck.

  14. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you should publish more
    about this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t speak about these subjects.
    To the next! Cheers!!

  15. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but
    I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

  16. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

  17. Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the other person’s webpage
    link on your page at appropriate place and
    other person will also do same in support of you.

  18. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  19. This is the right website for everyone who would like to
    understand this topic. You understand so much its almost tough to
    argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).

    You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject which has been discussed for years.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!

  20. What i do not realize is if truth be told how you’re now not really much
    more smartly-favored than you might be now. You’re so intelligent.
    You realize thus considerably in terms of this subject, produced me personally
    believe it from so many various angles. Its like
    women and men aren’t interested until it is something to accomplish with Girl gaga!

    Your own stuffs nice. All the time take care of it up!

  21. Good way of telling, and fastidious article to get
    information concerning my presentation focus, which i am
    going to deliver in institution of higher education.

  22. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  23. Great goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely fantastic.
    I really like what you have acquired here, certainly like what
    you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you
    still care for to keep it sensible. I can not wait to
    read much more from you. This is actually a terrific web site.

  24. Awesome site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
    same topics talked about here? I’d really like
    to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other
    knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

  25. Thanks for ones marvelous posting! I seriously enjoyed reading it,
    you might be a great author. I will be sure to bookmark your blog
    and will come back later on. I want to encourage
    one to continue your great writing, have a nice day!

  26. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get
    listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never
    seem to get there! Cheers

  27. always i used to read smaller articles or reviews which
    as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this post which I am reading here.

  28. Just want to say your article is as amazing. The clearness in your post is simply excellent
    and i could think you are a professional in this subject.
    Fine along with your permission allow me to snatch your RSS feed to
    stay up to date with impending post. Thank you 1,000,
    000 and please continue the gratifying work.

  29. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m
    having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  30. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  31. Hi! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate
    it!

  32. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of
