UX/User Experience: is the process of enhancing user satisfaction (Meeting/Surpassing user expectation) with a product by improving the usability(product being able or fit to be used), accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction with the product.
UI/User Interface: The means by which the user and a computer system interact, in particular the use of input devices and software.
UX and UI has been around for decades two professions that are very efficient in the tech industry and has also been defined by the following industry as UI and UX Design.
UX design is the process by which a pain point or need is identified this means that the UX design identifies the flaws in a product and make sure it is improved for user satisfaction, which then a rough prototype is formed which is to be validated later on. This means it creates test builds in order for the flaws of the product to get critiqued through testing. Now when the business model is created and the value proportion is validated then the product is produced.
Representation of how UI looks: User Interface Design = Visual Design + Interaction Design.
UI Design Issues
- Flagging/Reporting(The user wants to mark content that it isn’t helpful)
- This UI pattern lets the user play the role of being a content cop enabling them to monitor content however this leads to some users reporting content that doesn’t fit
- This lets the user organise content by adding appropriate keywords to help categorise it. Furthermore this benefits the user by allowing it to organise their own content and also makes it easier for other users to find similar content that has been tagged.
- Inline(Controversial) Forms
- Input Hints
- Action Context
- Keyboard Shortcuts
