Experience #1: Slow Download Speed
It's no secret we don't like waiting for sites and apps to load, but did you know that users abandon a site after just a couple of seconds?
“At Google, we aim for under a half second.”
- Maile Ohye, from Google
FARK! For real??? Well, don't sweat it too much...here's how you can fix this from a UX perspective: (1) If you can't keep your site/page/app from being bulky or slow, try showing load indicators as things are loading...loading...loading... (2) Work with the design and development teams to discuss why things are slow and see where you can either optimize images or change the code (3) Try simplifying the experience by breaking things across multiple pages - users don't mind clicks if they get speed, value, and simplicity.
