How are they wrong ? Do they have the wrong time ?JerseyMo wrote:The landing page correctly identifies my time zone yet the cities listed in the top right cornet are wrong.
Thanks for the advice but it stays as it is. I fail to see how placing them alongside instead of below makes things more intuitive. They still have to be read.JerseyMo wrote:The app should be intuitive and I do not find that to be the case. I suggest you place the instructions "Which there are more than a few" along side the clock rather than below.
I prefer them to be below for design reasons. I imagine the basic use case of the app as the user holding the device, probably a medium-sized phone, vertically, because that's how it's usually done. Then he sees the clock and the beginning of the instructions, so he knows they're there. Then he can enlarge portions of the screen and read them if he needs to. You're probably seeing it on a PC screen. Which of course is also an important way of viewing the site but the mobile view has precedence IMO. I could of course write something like "see notes below" to the right of the clock if the screen is landscape. Maybe I'll do it at some point.
Sometimes things aren't that simple and the user has to read the instructions and the help. That's what they're for. My app isn't the only program that has instructions. If you find them very complicated, well, I disagree but it's your opinion. I did the best I could to keep them simple.JerseyMo wrote:So instead of directing me to read the very complicated instructions, you should have explained to me how to change the settings.
Go Read the BOL is not what an end user wants to hear.
Anyway, did you at least read them ?
Anyway, why would you want to change the settings when you say the default time zone is right ? Do you have the right time for the cities in your time zone ? If so, you don't need to change any settings.
As I told you already, your questions are irrelevant to my app IMO. So of course I won't answer them. Unless you answer them for your preferred vintage pocket watch first . Then depending on your answer I might try to do something similar. But I don't promise anything.JerseyMo wrote:A cheeky use of the Socratic Method will not work on me. (AKA - answering a question with a question).
This way I can make the necessary changes and improvements to the program which the user sees immediately, without needing to upgrade anything. And I hope I'll never have to change the app itself any more, though of course one can never know for sure. It's basically an app in the cloud. Which has its drawbacks but IMO the benefits far outweigh them, at least in this case.
