Hello, I want to give some feedback regarding OGS’ UX that was difficult for my friends who I just invited over.
1. Menu is not very visible
So at the beginning the menu is collapsed, and there was a hamburger icon at top left to open it. But because of its alignment with OGS logo, my friend thought it was part of the logo, and because he doesn’t know of the hamburger icon’s meaning, after I tell him to open the menu I had to even explain “how” to open the menu.
2. Search is not intuitive
So next step is to add friend. So err I didn’t know about it before, but the “search for anything” feature is quite awesome!
But because of its relative position at the top of the menu. I thought it was just “search for a menu item”. Its awesomeness was lost to me until just now.
Maybe because it’s a “Search for anything you can think of”, it’s better to have the search on the top main navbar?
3. Challenge game setup is quite complicated
The most puzzling part was Time Control. They don’t know which is which and had to ask me.
Could it be possible to have an option for “quick play” similar to the main “Play” screen?
