Is it reasonable to expect that the button-too-close-to-screen-edge complaint can/will be solved - given the gazillion Android make/model variations that complicate the issue - or is the stylus workaround not ideal, but recommended?
One of my goals in life is to avoid expending emotional energy expecting a solution that has low odds of being effected.
Give it to us straight, design doc, we can take it.
FWIW, I notice that apps from Google tend to keep clickable buttons some pixels closer to the centerline, further from the margins, than these. Maybe not universally true, but for the ones I quickly looked at. That said, I’m not suggesting this is a showstopper but if going to a serious redesign maybe worth considering. Offered in the spirit of Austin’s invitation.
Well, I guess I said it wrong, but Google offer a number of apps with screen-based UI. It appears to me that many of them have more room between the “button” and the margin, or a wider clickable area, some don’t. But just to give an idea of the apps that are Google apps: Gmail, Contacts, Messages, the Google app, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive, Photos, Maps, Home… Not everyone likes or uses these for a variety of reasons.
In this episode, we chat about all things design with Austin Byrd & Greg Robison, who are on our Product Design team. Hear about how they are thinking about the Wyze user experience and the challenges they face in integrating multiple products and services into a cohesive experience!
I want a tablet command center: a customizable interface where I can arrange modules for my Wyze products; view multiple camera, tap to toggle power on selected plugs and bulbs, lock and unlock my door, etc. I have an old tablet that is wall-mounted and essentially dedicated to my Wyze devices. This would make it that much more useful.
I appreciate someone is spearheading this. I’m ready to chuck the wyze band due to it’s terrible accessibility on the band and the app.
Get rid of any gray text - it’s passe and is unreadable. Overall the text contrast on all screens for all products is bad either because of the size of the font and/or the thin font chosen.
Allow all screens to be enlarged/magnified. None of the pages on any section is responsive and that is a huge miss. There are no options to choose text size so we rely on you to find one that is readable to all age groups and/or vision compromised.
I have one of the largest phones on the market but still I cannot read the text on my phone easily. My glasses are current. Now allowing landscape to help enlarge the screen is a miss. Please fix it for phones as I don’t carry around a tablet at all times. Which is not to say the tablet view is better.
I’d like to see a dark mode too. Can you toss that into the mix?
Make accessibility the religion at Wyze first and foremost on everything (including this webpage - the font is way too thin and it’s gray).
Well, during the install process of the Wyze app (there isn’t one) they could include a color wheel for text and background Or, they could simply offer only two… Black on white or white on black. I happen to hate the current scheme
