  1. So the correct answer is the third one. So you might have been

  2. tempted to chose the first one here, because it's the shortest. Because you're
  3. trying to respect the fact that Debbie is on the go, and she's
  4. busy, and doesn't have a lot of time to engage with your application. But
  5. actually she'll have to spend more time if you use a notification like
  6. this. She actually has to press the notification, and go into the app to
  7. see what book is overdue and for how long. It actually doesn't really
  8. tell her anything. So in the end this is actually a really bad choice.
  9. The second one might look tempting because it does give her some
  10. more information. But she still has to either launch a navigation app,
  11. if she doesn't know where the library is. She might be really
  12. far away. Or if she wants to extend the books, let's say that
  13. your application allows her to do that, she still has to go
  14. into the app. And that's not really respecting her limited time and
  15. her split attention in with the real world. So the best one,
  16. is the third option. Because in
  17. one glanceable notification, she can completely engage
  18. with your application, and not actually have to enter it. And she has these nice
  19. contextual actions where she can extend the book
  20. or navigate there with just one button press.
  21. >> That was awesome. I did notice one thing,
  22. Debbie is holding her phone with a single hand.
  23. >> yes, that brings us into our next mobile constraint, which is handedness.
