Bad Mobile Apps- UI design gone wrong

August 22, 2011 — 2 Comments

I recently ran a post requesting bad app submissions for a chapter I’m writing on Mobile Design Anti-Patterns. So in this context “bad” refers to non-standard, or less than elegant interface designs, not “bad” like crashes a lot or doesn’t have key features. Robi, the creator of Apptentivewas selected to win a new copy of Simple & Usable.

Here are the submissions:

I’ll pick the best from these to include in the Anti-Pattern chapter and discuss the problems with the UI and possible solutions.

Please share any more you run across, just provide a link in the comments or email me a screenshot, theresaneil at gmail.

    Thanks for uploading these. It would be really helpful for my students to look at some of these as examples of “what not to do.”

      I’ll be posting a sample chapter from the book on anti-Patterns ion the next couple of weeks. It will detail the specific problems in a number of these examples.
