2013 was a pretty good year for us here at Spotless. The team grew over the past year as we took on exciting and challenging new projects. Over the last couple of months we conducted user testing of the Disney website with children across mobile and tablet, and several rounds of user research for Sony Network Entertainment in France, Germany and Spain, to name just a couple.   Of course, spending our Christmas ‘do in Paris wasn’t too shabby either…     We look forward to exciting times ahead in 2014. It’s already looking good with some user testing for…

International company MovingKit.com has announced a newly redesigned website with vastly improved usability and enhanced functions. Their lead designer explained the aim and issues behind the firm’s UX overhaul: “If the end user cannot figure out how to navigate our website that is content that cannot be uncovered.

The overall effect is a cleaner appearance, however less information is immediately apparent compared to the previous UI. Theverge.com tested the new Spotify app, and have said that the…

Those who’ve been reluctant about using their Android device with their Netflix account if they share it with others need never worry again – thanks to a recent update, queues and recommendations will now remain separate and private. While the Netflix feature released earlier this year which allows subscribers to easily share their accounts was a welcome enhancement, it caused trouble in that if one account is shared by a family, the queues and recommendations of individuals with different viewing habits were thrown into chaos. This nuisance is now a thing of the past – today the Netflix Android app…

So this year we discussed a whole bunch of different ideas about what to do for our 2013 Christmas do, and in the end the outright winner was a trip to Paris.  We are quite fortunate to have two French speakers in the office, and this meant planning the day was a lot easier, as we could chat through what was possible to see and do in the time. Given that we do like our food here at Spotless, we thought it was important to ensure we boarded the Eurostar in style, so a great deal of thought was given…

As a supplier of data recovery tools for a broad range of popular mainstream applications and file formats, Open File Tool users will agree that their latest major update of the PowerPoint program has impressively enhanced performance along with the intuitive UI that people know and love. The PPTX Opener is based on a brand-new recovery core, now enabling the program to restore data from PowerPoint files that are seemingly irrecoverable using other software of this kind. It uses a combination of advanced proprietary algorithms to identify and extract as much data as possible. In terms of the user interface,…
