This will do two things for the user: It’ll be easier to see the search box . [...]
First thing first: I really like search as a technology. Not so much because how it helps us today, but how it can help us tomorrow. Especially on the UX front, stuff moves slowly. One of the biggest issues, in my mind, is the empty search box. That’s why I tend to look for solutions [...]
Our seasonal food recipe app is getting closer to some front end hacking. Just finished making a navigation sprite where you’re supposed to swipe horizontal to change place of food foraging, and vertical to change time of year (month). It’s based on our earlier created mental model and Christine Hørven’s interpretation. When you open the web [...]
More than half the traffic for the recipe site we’re indexing comes from Ipads and Android Tablets. Because of this we’ve chosen to do pad first, mobile second and regular laptop/desktop third. So first up are Ipads and Android Tablets. Recipe App User Experience on Ipads and Androids How to sort the result set The [...]

First thing first! Let’s get rid of the bullshit bingo lingo: “Relevancy tuning” in search is a fancy description for something that’s not very magical, even if it sounds like just that. It’s about getting the right results on top of your search result. End of story. If somebody asks you a question, you should [...]
So, what’s this you ask? It’s a series of mini-hackathons some of us at Comperio are doing to achieve a small list of goals: Learn more about search, both tech and UX. Show that a nice search user experience doesn’t need a search input box. Show a search that is light weight. Generally, build something [...]

The UX designers do user interviews, create personas, user stories, concepts analysis and interaction design. The developers follow up with content analysis, installation of software, configuration, development, and a lot of relevancy tuning: “How can we ensure that the right [...]
