Throughout 2012 we’ve been focusing on e-commerce checkout usability. In 2013 we’ll be shifting focus towards mobile e-commerce usability and publish a wide range of articles based on a major research study we’re currently wrapping up. All the research findings will be published in a new usability report: M-Commerce Usability.
We’re also expanding our team with Hallie W. Barrows (editor and proofreader) and Julie S. Rasmussen (UX intern), to kick off 2013 in an even higher gear.
Thanks to all of you who read, tweet, and comment on our articles – we truly enjoy the interaction. We know a lot of you started subscribing to our articles during the year (thank you!), so below you’ll find a list of some of our most popular articles from 2012.
Have a wonderful 2013!
