Another definition of UX

October 22, 2012

[User experience] ‘extends the task-oriented approach of usability and goes beyond the instrumental, views emotion and affect as core qualities of an interaction, and emphasises the experiential. Furthermore, while traditional HCI was very problem-oriented, UX is a positive approach to HCI, looking for rich experiences rather than solely focusing on usability problems.’
