Pocket Lists

Pocket Lists is an iOS and web planning application to get your life in order. Attractive design, easy-to-navigate interface, and a real-life background of making up must-dos lists are behind this app. Simple as that it makes you more organized and progress in everything in your life.

#1. No possibility of quick registration and authorization

UX Bug

In recent years, entering and registering via social networks for SaaS services makes it much easier for users to get in touch with the product. Logging in via Fb, Twitter would make the registration process and logging in easier and faster.

#2. Duplicate search query

UX Improvement tip

Duplication while typing in the search box. As a result, while searching a word the user focuses on the right-side search results because of the larger size of the letters, although in fact, the desirable search results may appear on the left side.

It is obvious why it was decided to come up with such a decision since this search is universal and searches not only by the names of the lists but also by their content.
This is convenient and it allows you not to discretely duplicate the search feature several times for different entities.

We would suggest expanding the search box for the entire width of the second and third blocks and add two additional plates: “Results by List Name” and “Results by List Items”

#3. It’s not clear what features a user gets for the Premium pack price

UX Bug

It would be more logical first to show the benefits and then below the list announce the price and the button to buy. At present, the price for what we pay and functions are split by other content.

#4. Incorrect vertical alignment of icons to the near elements

UI Bug

It’a pity for the user on trying to make action do not receive any reaction back from the interface.

#5. Errors in context menus alignment

UI Bug

The space between the icons and links is concertinaed. In order to improve this context menu, we suggest assigning left-alignment to all links.

#6. If erase the name of the list and then move aside, there is no way back to editing or deleting of the unnamed list

UX Bug

At some point, it seemed to me that my task list was corrupted, and I would have to make a new account since it was completely impossible to go to the list category to change its name or delete it. Fortunately, this can be fixed by creating a new list category; then going to the list without a name is successful. However, the problem comes across quite often; hence, this decision is not entirely logical.

#7. Errors in the service are not clear

UI Bug

Error messages should provide as much info as possible and disclose not only the reason of the error, but the solution as well. In this case, error notification contains no relevant info on what happened. It is not clear what was the error’s impact and how to prevent similar flaws in future.

Current look

#8. No space between Meeting date and time

UI Bug

After clicking on the Contact link the whole page gets white and only reload helps to solve the issue.

Current look

#9. Accelerate interaction with list items

UI Bug

At present, in order to open the details of a list’s item, you need to click on it once, and then when the overflow menu icon appears click again. In this case, it makes sense to minimize user clicks and make it possible to see the overflow menu icon when you hover over any menu item without additional clicks.

Current look

#10. We think a step ahead for the user

UX bug

It is enough to add the Copy Link button so that the user does not have to select the link manually and copy it through the right mouse button or keyboard shortcut.

Redwerk team comments

Pocket Lists is one of the best iOS apps to organize your task list. Its usability is ensured by simplistic, smooth and vivid design. Web version is an integral part of this service ecosystem. Unfortunately it has a number of flaws, that can be improved from both UI and UX perspective.
