[edit] Some usability guidelines for application settings and general settings

  • Settings specific to an application can be handled within the application's user interface.
  • Global settings which affects several applications or general issues within the device are collected into the general settings application.
  • If the number of setting items are large, they can be grouped into logical sections.
  • If a setting item is present in the application specific setting as well as general setting, the order of priority must be defined clearly. For example, a general predictive text setting could be overridden by an application specific setting, but a general silent mode setting within a profile should be effective regardless of any other tone settings.
  • The titles of setting items should be clear to understand.
  • User changes to the settings must be updated immediately.
