Here's the thing. This is a great book about UX and UI and usability as a whole. Most of the concepts are still relevant today. But since's it's been written quite a while ago, a lot of the examples and devices mentioned seem dated. Who's using Kindle Fire anyway?

This is a great read. I work in a software development team, so this was an interesting read for me. I just wish there was a more recent edition, so I didn't have to yawn through the parts that aren't that relevant anymore.

A primeira vez que tentei ler esse livro em 2018, eu achei chato e desisti ainda no primeiro capítulo.

É um livro bem interessante e apesar de "velho" para falar de UX/UI, ele trata fundamentos importantes a medida que os autores comentam o resultados de suas pesquisas. É possível notar a influência deles no mercado atual, porque as práticas sugeridas estão sendo aplicadas, a exemplo ter um site próprio para mobile invés de ficar adaptando, a queda do conceito de fazer "mobile first" ou only além

Da ex studente di Ergonomia Cognitiva, quando ho trovato questo manuale sugli scaffali de La Feltrinelli, mi è sembrato un sogno.

Jakob Nielsen, uno degli spiriti guida della disciplina da me studiata, ha scritto un’opera sull’usabilità dei dispositivi mobili proprio nel momento per me più favorevole (ero in procinto di scrivere una tesi sull’usabilità delle app per smartphone).

Questo libro fornisce linee guida principali per la creazione di siti web e app per telefonini mobili, tablet ed e-reade

I'm torn - the book itself is ok, but the translation into Polish is horrible. I was also very much puzzled when I read that Kindle (the ebook reader) is an earlier version of Kindle Fire (tablet)... I'm not sure if this is a matter of the terrible translation or the book itself. Either way: I wasn't swept off my feet. ...more
