A podcast about bad UI & UX

We discuss the importance of user experience in technology and the world around us, and talk about great design that just works - or moan about it when it doesn't.

Podcast hosts David and Andrew sitting on a green sofa. Andrew is looking at David, who has an expression of disgust.

What is usability?

Usability is a measure of how well a specific user in a specific context can use a product/design to achieve a defined goal effectively, efficiently and satisfactorily.

What is UX?

"User experience" encompasses all aspects of the end-user's interaction with the company, its services, and its products.

- Nielsen Norman Group

Why should I care?

When your users struggle to achieve the goals the app promises efficiently, they will probably look to your competition to get what your app failed to deliver.
