Today I was excited I got my replacement Blackberry 8320. As I was fumbling through the Setup Wizard, I got stuck at the Application Permissions screen because of the confusing terminology. It reads, “Set the default access control settings for third party applications.” Huh? I don't understand. It wanted me to check one of the options below:
What does this mean? Luckily Barbara was sitting right next to me as I was going through the process. She explained that this screen is asking if you want the application to ask you questions before you run it, followed by the option to deny or approve.
Pretty much saying, "Hey, are you sure you want to access the Internet?" "Are you sure you want to access Gmail?"
No, I do not want these annoying questions asked every time I click to open an application so I chose "Permissive Access."
Anyway, my point is: make the terminology as easy to understand as possible. Not everyone has a mobile internet expert sitting right next to them. And then they will fail to use your service even when they try.
