Abstract

In user interface development, it is essential to find the balance between grasping and, subsequently, holding attention and providing an optimal information density both in the center and periphery of focus, refraining from information overload. This process is like balancing on a thin line: the exact amount and optimal manner of information presentation are crucial. In this paper, we provide an outline on how user interface development can be facilitated, using the program uLog, developed by Noldus IT.
