65 apps and products and counting.

I’ve been collecting notes on problematic, cautionary, and downright frustrating User eXperiences and User Interfaces (UX/UI) for a few years now. I’ve been annoyed as hell about them for most of my life, but in the past few years I decided to take my design sensibilities seriously and take notes on these things. My hope and intention is that this process is not only beneficial for my own design thinking, but also might be of benefit to the businesses involved; or at least, to some more UX-focused competitors.

For the moment, I’m penning this as a kind of introductory post, with my current list of software and apps that I’ve taken note of (and on the positive side, I also have some notes – usually screen captures – on examples of excellence which I’ll turn into another series of posts eventually).

With further ado, here are the websites/apps/products which have inspired (hah hah) me to take notes on what could be made better:

If you are especially curious about any of these (or if you work at any of these!) and want to hear about it sooner rather than later, throw down a comment and let me know. I’ll be happy to oblige.

And, if you are a recruiter or tech company that is hiring for UX/UI, product development/management, or front-end development – definitely drop me a line, let’s have a serious chat about what I can do for you (10X your investment in me, I guarantee).

Looking forward to your comments! (even if this post has aged by the time you see it, share your thoughts anyhow!)
