Stop Squishing Images

This one has been bugging designers since the dawn of computers.  Stop squishing images!

Creatively saying "NO"

As product managers, we want the best for your product. It’s important to keep things on track, on time, and keeping your product features relevant.

Daily Active Users (DAU) and how to get them

The world is full of ideas. Some work and some don’t, but what we all need to be reminded of in app development is the importance to test to see if people care about your idea.

It may take a while to figure out what holds your users' attention, but once you do, don't pass up the opportunity to take advantage of this knowledge.

Encouragement is a powerful tool and direct critique can encourage growth and light a fire to do better.
