Time Picker Changes Coming to Informant 5 for iOS
If you have followed the posts here you may recall that we released a new date picker and time picker with Informant 5.00. While both were very innovative and had some great thought behind their design; both were met with resistance and, at the time, we decided to go back to the 30 day date picker and the default Apple time picker. The new date picker has been well received, although the time picker still needed some work. (We really don’t like the scrolling wheels either. )
We have been working on some new U/I designs for a new time picker:
Here are 2 of the options we are working through.
Option A: “Dial Pad”
This is a quick just type in the numbers and your time is set.
Dial Pad Variation (A-2)
Option B: Clock Face
Advantages of this style is the simple 2 tap to set time. Tap 1 = Set Hours, Tap 2= Set Minutes.
This screenshot shows the state after selecting the Hour, then you would select the minutes.
Option C: Quick Input (2 Taps to Input Time)
Option D: Linear Time Select
Each of these designs are currently being kicked around, revised and may make their way into internal or external betas. We are curious to hear your thoughts and opinions on each of them. Please comment below:
