Long-scrolling websites, i.e. sites that let you scroll down for an extended amount of time, have been around for years.

The reason? Users love them!

That isn’t about to change, which is why we wanted to give you some tips and best practices in this article. Because long-scrolling or infinite-scrolling alone doesn’t mean the user is going to spend a long time on your website.

Have fun reading and scrolling 😉

When building a product one often wants to provide a solution to a real problem. But that is rarely sufficient to develop an enjoyable product which users can’t stop thinking about.

Here is where user testing comes in. By involving users in the product development process, companies can incorporate feedback in every product development stage.

In this article, we want to give you an introduction on what user testing is and why it is necessary. For an in-depth exploration of the topic, please see our ebook on “How to build products users love”. Happy reading!

Even if you don’t greet each user personally: each time a user visits your website, you are communicating with them. Through the design of your website.

How this works?

Communication on your website works on different levels and ranges from text, pictures and the structure of a site to colours, titles and buttons. In this blog post I want to explain how communication on a website works and what you can do to improve it.

Let’s go!

When you’ve created a piece of software and follow the SaaS model, you will most likely be offering a free trial to your users. During this trial, your user can test the product and decide if he needs it.

And that is the hard part. You have to show the user why he or she needs your product and that its use is easy and pleasant.

That’s why I want to give you some tips about how to make a good impression and create an outstanding user onboarding experience.

Let’s go!

A few weeks ago, we published a blog post introducing different methods of on boarding. Due to the positive feedback, we decided to go back and write another blog post on this topic. A lot of users only sign up for an application but never actually end up using it.

How do you convince more users to activate the application? How do you turn sign-ups into active users?

Today we want to share 5 tips about how to create a successful user on boarding experience. Let’s go!

Today, it is no longer sufficient to design a product that just works. Products need to have an amazing user experience to stand out from the crowd, to be successful, and to have a user base, who enjoys using them. In a nutshell: products need to be more than mere functional.

The designers Don Norman and Aarron Walter are asking this question for decades: How can design evoke positive and memorable experiences?

In this post, I want to explore the topic of emotional design. I will draw on research by Norman and Walter, and will ask why we enjoy using some products and others not. Hope you enjoy reading this post!

Not long ago we published the post “Bug tracking explained in funny GIFs“. We had a lot of fun writing it and got a lot of positive reactions. Therefore, we decided to write another post about a topic that is equally relevant to us: User Acceptance Testing. Many of our customers use Usersnap for User Acceptance Testing and we have written a few serious articles about this topic.

If you are new here: User Acceptance Testing is often the last step in software development. The idea is to test if a product works for the user. If you want to read more about how to get started with UAT we have some interesting articles for you. If are just here for the fun, read on! 🙂

TED-Talks are fantastic, short introductions into new topics and perspectives. Everyone with internet access can dive into new stories and new worlds.

There is a huge variety of these talks out there, so that it can be a challenge to get an overview of what’s out there.

Therefore, we put our heads together and collected the eight different TED talks which every web developer should watch.

So, have fun watching and let us know in the comments if we any great ones are missing!

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve given you a deeper look into the world of User Acceptance Testing. And over this period of time, we have received questions on the workflows and processes behind UAT.

It’s quite a special topic for us too, since our bug tracking- & testing software is used by a variety of people and companies helping them in their User Acceptance Testing efforts.

In today’s blog post I’d like to show you what the actual workflow of UAT looks like. From planning to executing and to analyzing your UAT efforts.

Let’s get started.
