      Awesome, thanks Chris! And you’re welcome! I’m just paying it forward, everything I’ve learned has come from the amazing industry folks who came before me. I feel that sharing knowledge with the community is incredibly important for the future of the field! Thanks again for taking the time to comment! 🙂

  2. I love your last paragraph in this Bio, EXACTLY how I feel. Great minds and all that 🙂

  3. […] Oops we did, we aren’t alone, and we want better results!  I’m in total agreement with Jennifer Aldrichs’ assessment of the current state of usability testing tools. Check her “Mobile Usability […]

  4. wonderful read. Great tips for someone who is himself at a prelaunch and crowdfunding stage at building his app. One of the things which I feel really works is if one can articulate the benefit to the user. In my case I am really focussed on the benefits to the user of the app in that they can make their smartphone their moneymaker! I can share some inside story if you are interested to share with your readers. Cheers

    Hi Jennifer,
    I found your site through this article: http://blog.invisionapp.com/how-to-rock-your-app-launch/, and I’d love to know how your friend (the mom) found resources to build her app (ie. designers, developers, etc.). I would love to exchange some experiences with you! Please shoot me an email for the response.

    Thanks a ton,
    Albert

      Hi Albert! She started following industry folks on Twitter and reached out to them directly, in addition to building her network and tweeting questions to her followers. It’s amazing how many people are willing to give advice via Twitter if you just ask. Twitter is a great forum because questions and answers have to be short and to the point, without massive time investment or tricky scheduling on the part of either party.

    Hey, I am not a newbie, and have presented many designs to stakeholders and got great and sometimes horrific feedback. This past week I just felt so uninspired showing off high-def designs, on a project that I worked on from its infancy, through user research, stories, storyboarding, user testing while creating personas in parallel. At the end I opted to save time and money and do the 13 screens (each) for mobile and desktop in hi-def and even slapped it inside of Invisionapp (which is awesome) only at the end to receive an underwhelming response. We quarrelled over UX design which we already discussed in the prototyping stages.

    After reading your article on Invisions Blog “An open letter to newbie designer” I was lifted. Literally frown turned upside down, its reminded me, that criticism comes, how we handle it is up to us, how we progress after is what makes us designers.

    Thanks alot 🙂
