Summary0007334: UX Study: user fails to identify QR button
DescriptionIn the UX study today, one of the users had trouble to identify the QR button as the place to initiate interactions with QR codes.

We should discuss how we can make it easier to discover the button's functionality for first-time users.

Note: We had similar issues with the QR-Code button and URI-entry discoverability in the WebExtension.
TagsNo tags attached.

One user suggested labeling the button "Payment" (which of course is not quite correct, as it can do more). I think "scan QR code" would be good, but maybe better to show a big hint (scan Taler QR codes to pay, withdraw, ...) as long as the balance is empty and we don't have much to show anyway?

One way to address this might also be what Marc suggested: Do one of these short intro slide shows (not sure what these are called by UI/UX people) that highlights the QR code button somehow.

Possible solution on Android to make the button more prominent.

Idea: change the text to be on 2 lines and say:

Tap: scan QR code
Hold: enter URI

That'd make the 'hold' feature more discoverable as well. Just an idea.

I think that's way too verbose and big (Christian's suggestion). I like grote's new label!

To make entering URIs more discoverable, we might want to do it like a lot of banking apps do it with IBANs: Detect when they're in the copy+paste buffer when opening the app and then showing some toast (or whatever this UI element is called) offering to handle it.

I think with Grote's new label, we can consider this one resolved.
