error messages

Uh Oh, something went wrong!

I definitely don’t like when apps goof up that I am using, but I also don’t like when the product spits back something I can’t understand.  To that end, I thought I would share my two favorite error messages, since there are plenty of apps which give me strange strings which doesn’t often help with troubleshooting and can confuse a user.

Delta has this one which embraces lingo from their industry and doesn’t try to do any real explanation.

and here is my favorite from an iPhone app, My6Sense.

This is the type of stuff you get when you allow yourself not to take yourself too seriously when developing a product.  It also makes it fun to use the app and allows the user to go “yeah, I goof up too sometimes, I should expect this from the apps I use too”.
