Netflix, a few weeks ago, finally introduced Drag and Drop on their Queue page. I have already used it a bunch of times. Bravo, Netflix. It works very well for what it does. It has a nice transparency when a row is in motion. Plus several visual cues to know what is happening. However, it is a little limited. You can not drag a whole block of movies. This is important when you have something like 24-Season 6 (5 disc series). You can only move those one at a time. I know it’s hard, but they should be able to either select multiple rows for dragging or automatically move a block of a series as one.
Additionally, the checkbox on the right (for deletion) is much harder to click now that the row is draggable. I missed the button several times. You need very fine motor control to get it. My suggestion would be to implement a replacement checkbox made out of images that are larger with a better target.
It’s their first try at Drag and Drop, so I don’t want to be too critical. It’s a good start. I hope they follow it up with enhancements. Getting a product right takes alot of versions and alot of work, but in the end, your customers will love you for it. I don’t know how the UI looks for Blockbuster. Anyone have that?
