Web-based applications are different from content-based web sites because the users are involved in a transaction. In our work researching the usability of content-based sites, we focus on how users will find and react to the information. However, with web-based applications, there are many other considerations we need to account for.

In this week’s UIEtips, we reach back into the articles archives and look at some of the challenges we’ve seen users encounter in our usability tests. These are challenges to look out for when users interact with your applications. I hope you enjoy it.

Read the article, 3 Important Usability Challenges for Designing Web Apps.

At UIE, a big part of our research agenda focuses on how to create web applications that delight users. We feel it’s so important that we created a conference focusing on web applications. It’s the Web App Masters Tour.

During the 2 day conference, you’ll hear from 9 Masters on mobile design strategy, data visualization and design best practices. Get all the details on the Seattle and Minneapolis stops at http://www.UIETour.com.
