UI and the use of colour
Hi all. I love the smart remote and have been impressed with support and responsiveness to answer my queries.
I respect the consistency and usability of the user interface, and in particular the uncluttered and minimal graphic elements.
As the display on the remote is colour, though, I do think the product could be improved with some subtle use of colour. My suggestions are:
Colour could be used to differentiate the different devices. Perhaps give the user the option to select a different colour for each device. This colour could extend as far as either the device icon at the top, the device name, or both. I'm not proposing that the controls below change from white as I don't think that would be tasteful.
If the customisation route isn't one you follow, then perhaps you could consider adding some colour elements to the icons or button graphics, as long as it's done with restraint, but I trust your designers to do this.
The effect, when done right, would be to lend the device a further air of class, as when I pick up the remote, it looks like it has a greyscale display almost all of the time.
Hi Paul Harrison ,
Thanks for your feedback.
I agree with you we need to add more colors throughout interfaces. We recently released colored icons and added subtle colors on some UI elements.
I know we still have some progress to do but you can be sure it will be improved in future versions, we are working toward this direction.
Please let us know if you have any other feedback that could help us improve your experience.
