247-Friendly: Thorough usability checklist for web designers
Our friends at User Focus in London have just published a really useful set of usability guidelines for web app designers. Although many of the guidelines may now be common practice, it’s great to see them all in one package. If your company doesn’t do in-house usability, this checklist is ideal for developers to use as part of their design and feature testing.
The 247 guidelines are broken out into 9 sections:
Home page usability
Navigation and IA
Forms and data entry
Trust and credibility
Writing and content quality
Page layout and visual design
Help, feedback and error tolerance
As an added bonus, User Focus provides an option to download as an Excel doc!
