UX App Review - Superhero Coloring Book

I've always love apps that has a good user experience but user experience varies a lot from culture (lot of white space vs condense information, portal like, which is famous in china) but there are things that are common like top-left down visibility and others that makes a website/app really good for users.

Part of why i revive this blog is so that i could review apps but not from the perspective of how good they are or you should download them but from the view of how good the user experience is. The posts would probably be short and there will be a lot of images :)
Here is the first view app, this was submitted at Android Apps community at G+.

Superhero Coloring Book
Main Screen
In the main screen, you could swipe or click the arrows for the next/previous page, which is good. However the icons are miss leading, the lower left is actually an icon to rate the app not an IM feature. The lower right is to my saved pictures, the icon is fine. I wish the sound icon was here which was in the coloring screen

Colouring Screen
The top most left is the sound icon which should have not been in the colouring screen as it doesnt involve anything about that screen, the icon placements are a bit off but its not that bad. There seems to be no indication if you're using the bucket or the pencil or the eraser. There's a colour buckets and a color picker and they are quite far from each other. If i colour something and hit back, it wont ask me if i want to save the image. When you click clear the page, you could still colour from behind.

Saved Images Screen
No indication that you have no saved images.


Those were the screens and i hope the develop improves his app :)

Unlockd Android Auto Open

Now that Unlockd has reached its doomed. Here is a script where i just downloaded android tools and automatically have my phone open, I believe you can use this for games that requires constant tapping of the screen (as long as it's not one of the fast tap one as adb has a delay). for i in `seq 1 50`; do # open the phone adb shell input keyevent 26 # keep the phone open for 8 seconds sleep 8 # close the phone adb shell input keyevent 26 # randomised sleep to make it look real sleep $[ ( $RANDOM % 10 ) + 1 ]s done if your phone has passcode for i in `seq 1 50`; do adb shell input keyevent 26 sleep 1 # swipe from bottom to up adb shell input touchscreen swipe 530 1280 1030 480 # enter your passcode adb shell input text <Your passcode> # check button adb shell input keyevent 66 sleep 8 adb shell input keyevent 26 sl…

How to disable textfield on AS3

This took me 2 hours to find out how to disable textfield on AS3, its not the perfect solution but it seems to be the only solution.

private var txtField:Textfield;
...
this.txtField = this.getChildByName("txtField");
this.txtField.mouseEnabled = false;
this.txtField.tabEnabled = false;

and to turn it enable again:
this.txtField.mouseEnabled = true;
this.txtField.tabEnabled = true;

You could also do this
//disable input
myTextField.selectable = false;
myTextField.type = TextFieldType.DYNAMIC;

//enable input
myTextField.selectable = true;
myTextField.type = TextFieldType.INPUT;


While this sound cheap coz you have to disable the mouse and the tab of that component and not the component itself, it seems to be the only solution. Thanks Adobe!!!!!!!!
