My flash-usability research has led me to Girlzilla’s Usability Testing Tips. Even if you couldn’t do usability testing, if you did the first four tasks you’d probably improve your product.
- Define Business Goals
- Determine the User’s Goals
- Identify Your Users
- Create Usability Tasks
If you create a list of tasks (#4) based on the user and business goals, then go through them yourself with #3, your target user, in mind you will probably quickly spot many usability problems….
Also interesting was their “Flash Usability Tips,” though the reason it interested me was that it wasn’t much different than most web usability lists. I know there must be usability challenges unique to Flash– anyone want to share a few?
