As a full-cycle software development company, Redwerk has its own in-house design team, which delivers their master skills and UI/UX insights to the customers. We create high-quality design for already existing apps, and for those which we create from the scratch. People’s creativity and a good skill set in soft development brought a lot of crackerjack apps to our lives, which make many day-to-day tasks much easier to perform. Unfortunately, numerous products that actually dignify to be top rated are getting lost in the bottom of the charts, commonly, due to the slack-baked UI/UX “ingredient”. In respect of that, Redwerk decided to apply its’ expertise in UI/UX and web-design and created a blog section dedicated to the overview of various applications concerning these matters. We proud of what we do, and if it’s relevant to you, feel free to check up our portfolio on Behance site.

Taskade, SaaS web app

Taskade is one of the most modern and beautiful task managers. It’s functional, awesome looking, fast loading, and, on top of that it has default templates. However, as practice shows, minor UI bugs can be found even behind the prettiest interfaces.

#1. No hover states on some buttons

UI Bug

Any active web interface element should change its appearance when you hover over it. In the Taskade footer there are 5 identical style buttons: 3 on the left and 2 on the right. Hover works perfectly with the left-side buttons, but the right-side buttons don’t change their color when hovered over.

#2. Incorrect alignment of icons inside buttons

UI Bug

Icons inside the buttons should be aligned not only horizontally but also vertically. Settings icon is one of those where that rule is not perfectly applied. This especially becomes noticeable when hovering over the gear icon. It starts to move inside the button.

#3. Dropdowns are not highlighted

UI Bug

Dropdowns and dialog windows should differ in color from the background, or have a noticeable shadow that allows drawing user’s attention to the appeared object. When click on the Settings button, unlike other similar buttons in the black theme, we can see an obvious merging of the dropdown with the background that should be fixed. It would be appropriate to change the color of the dropdown, e.g. to #272727, then it would look like this:

Redwerk team comments

Taskade is one of the most convenient services to manage tasks. Ease of use for both personal purposes and for multi-user work, and an attractive interface with two basic themes: light and dark – make this SaaS service one of the most convenient for everyday employment. Minor UI bugs that I encountered during the analysis of this service do not affect the performance and functionality, but show only minor frontend flaws that can easily be remedied.
