Overexposure

That’s what I think of this state of the Tell a Friend form on this Taster’s Choice Flash wheel o’fun:

My God, it's full of drop-down lists!

As a reminder, your Flash applications do not sport the same basic usability behaviors that you get out of Web sites rendered in browsers or in applications built with robust development languages.

Instead, it’s going to let you expose all of your drop-down lists at the same time.  Which makes no sense, since the user can only act on one and the others clutter up the interface and obscure the text of the message.

It’s a lack of attention and a lack of QA.  Don’t let it happen to you.  Test the basic behavior of your Flash applications to make sure it conforms to what other applications do.
