A Feedback state is shown when the UI informs the user about what's happening in the app.
- Feedback state: A moment when the UI informs the user about what's happening in the app.
Now let's learn about the feedback state. 0:00 A feedback state is shown when the UI informs 0:03 the user about what's happening in the app. 0:07 Let's imagine that my app syncs with my photo albums in Google Photos. 0:11 Once users give permission for the app to sync with their Google Photos account, 0:17 they can select a Google photo album and associate it with a trip. 0:22 That way, the photos can easily appear in the travel app. 0:27 With this added functionality, we can show an image in the card, but 0:31 we also need to prepare for a case when an image is not available. 0:36 Perhaps there is a syncing error. 0:40 I can display an alert to communicate that to the user so 0:43 that they can try reauthorizing the app to sync. 0:46 There are system errors that are outside of the user's control. 0:50 Perhaps the server is down. 0:53 You'll want to design for that scenario to keep the user informed as well. 0:55 Let's take a look at the Fitbit website for another example. 1:00 Fitbit helps people track their health and fitness. 1:04 Perhaps in order to see data charted on a dashboard, 1:08 the user needs to connect their device. 1:12 In this example, you can see it's been a while since I synced my Fitbit. 1:15 There's an alert banner to prompt me to sync my device, so 1:20 I can see the activities charted in my account. 1:23 This is specific and actionable. 1:26 Those are just a couple of examples to illustrate the feedback state. 1:29 Up next, we'll take a look at partial states. 1:34
