Cultured Code on UI design

February 04, 2008

Cultured Code writes about designing the user interface for creating repeating items in their upcoming task management application, Things:

It seemed fine in theory. But after implementing and combining it with the underlying logic, it took us only minutes to discover that it didn’t work as expected. Not that anyone was able to tell exactly why. And that’s often the case when developing user interfaces. It just didn’t feel right.

Looking at the sheer number of rejected designs, it’s no wonder why Things is my favorite task management tool at the moment.
