Usability September 3, 2006

At the end of the day, if your web application isn’t usable it ain’t gonna be used. I’ve taken some time again today to try and make a few things more accessible to the average user (and a few bugfixes to boot).

In addition to adding some basic validation for registration & space names, I’ve reworked the “Show a friend!” link to allow you to E-Mail a friend containing the URL necessary to view your online coloring. This is much easier than trying to explain to people “No, just Right-click, copy shortcut & then paste this in an email or IM session”. Don’t worry – for those of you who’ve already figured this out I’ve kept a “(direct link)” available!

The new feature – email yourself a snapshot of the current colorSpace (it was half-done in the code, and I figured why not throw the user a bone and give ’em something they might like to have).

Forthcoming: delete space confirmation, and editing space names – stay tuned!
