I was browsing around my old Adobe files/folders this morning and found this PDF that I had created for the team, as an evangelism artifact, based upon an industry report trumping UX over feature creep.
In a nutshell:
â€¢ More features isn’t better, it’s worse.
â€¢ You can’t make things easier by adding to them
â€¢ Confusion is the ultimate deal breaker
â€¢ Style matters
â€¢ Only features that provide a good experience will be used
â€¢ Any feature that requires learning will only be adopted by a small fraction of users
â€¢ Unused features can slow you down and hurt ease of use
â€¢ Users don’t want to think about technology
â€¢ Forget about killer features; focus on killer experience (how it all comes together)
â€¢ Less is difficult to achieve, that’s why less is more valuable
Hope others find this to be valuable as well…
