Switching through multiple "primary" phones for testing

Hi All,

I'm a User Experience Designer. While my primary phone is an iPhone 5, I'm curious to really understand the user behaviors consistent with some android devices (perhaps even extend to windows and blackberry as well). I've been able to test various apps on these devices through my company but I know to truly understand what the user goes through, I should adopt an adroid phone as my primary phone for a month and treat it as real users do.

pattern or feature inventory (as in content inventory)

I appreciate the responses so far.

Allow me to reframe this question: I am looking for a method to capture and
present interactive elements on a competitor's site.
I'm thinking of an interaction designer's version of the IA's content
inventory. I want to inventory interactive features, rather than content
and links. Any ideas?

For example, in a previous job I had TechSmith's Morae(R) which would allow
me to capture dynamic aspects of an interaction, or an entire experience. I
do not have Morae now.

better but seems more ugly interaction


"The methods for tracking employees have evolved as companies attempt
to reign in spending and increase productivity. 'The Man' never
sleeps, and pretty soon, the opportunity for the working man to
exercise his right to take unnecessary coffee breaks and congregate at
the watercooler will be gone forever."

It only makes the working enviroment less attractive than without it,
from personal view.

Goal-Directed Design and Legacy Systems

I'm interested in experiences where IxDers have employed GDD on an upgrade
of a large enterprise legacy system, where the implementation model
necessarily (because of the complexity of infrastructure and mammoth costs
to change it) dictates system rules to the user and therefore counters some
of their potential goals.

I understand that there needs to be compromise. I guess it's always going to
be a damage limitations exercise? Comment appreciated.
