If you’re looking to develop a new application or a website, you may not have given much thought to making it look and feel trustworthy to your potential users.

But trust me (pun intended) it’s important.

A well-trusted, well-reviewed website or app will draw new, repeat users and boost your online presence, business, and reputation.

So how can developers and designers create and design trust?

This article focuses on elements and techniques which will enable you and your website or app to gain the trust of your users.

More than 3,5 years ago Usersnap started out as a simple feedback widget which can be embedded on any website or application. Over the time we’ve added our beloved project dashboard, browser extensions, and other benefits which are now used and loved by our community.

Today, I’d like to show you features which are particularly beneficial for large corporations.

More and more SaaS businesses are taking off the ground today. And it’s great.

The SaaS business is a super-fast growing industry attracting more and more people and companies. These organizations are more and more floating applications in the cloud. Scaling in the cloud has some essential benefits and risks as well.

In this article we are going to show you how to start building a cloud-based SaaS architecture, dealing with issues of scalability and what this means for your SaaS application.

In a recent Offscreen magazine issue, Eric Meyer, a famous consultant, author, and web designer explains why he stopped calling himself a “web designer” and prefers the title “experience designer” instead.

In the realm of the design world today, the term “web design” has become something of an understatement, especially when we look at where web design has come from compared to 20 years ago.

The traditional idea of web design has evolved tremendously, especially in the last couple of years. The web is all around us, no matter if we think about smart bubbles, glasses, or other IoT devices. I guess the pioneers of the web, would be surprised in which devices web design can be found nowadays.

WordPress is a great tool. In fact, about 50% of all websites out there use WordPress. So, it’s no wonder that when you’re thinking of starting a blog for your company or simply develop a new website, WordPress is one of the first things that comes to mind.

But it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows and sometimes, you’re better off looking elsewhere. At least you should consider other alternatives to WordPress before getting starting without losing even a thought.

I’m super happy to work with a company that puts a lot of energy into the quality assurance part of every single software development project.

Quality assurance is a discipline that’s overlooked and under-appreciated. We produce software, share it with the team, test it, collect feedback, ask beta testers and then do it over again. Share, test, collect, ask, repeat. Yup, that’s pretty much it.

Yet people treat quality assurance as something superficial – a few tests here, a few user feedback there, and with one big eye staring at the release button.
