iPhone App Settings

An observation on iPhone app settings usage.

Previously,for HKWarnings, when the warning language preference was in the main iPhone Settings app, only 20% of HKWarnings users chose to display the warnings in Chinese. Since the last release, you can change the language preference from within the app. Now 50% of people use the Chinese language preference.

I received a couple of curt feedback emails saying things like “Rubbish! English ONLY!”

However, since v1.1 it has has Chinese localisation – people just didn’t know.

This goes to show, from my data, that many people don’t ┬ácheck the available options in the Settings app.
