    designing pick-up-and-play applications

    I make a lot of design your own _____ applications, I spend a lot of time making them, and many people think they are awesome...after I explain to them how to use it

    It seems like right now my biggest weakness in creating these is making them in a way that a novice user who isn't computer savvy can easily use their first time.

    I am just wondering if any one has any ideas strategies for overcoming this weakness?

    Thanks!

    Perhaps you could provide them with a “plug-in toolbox” inside the application (alike to the Firefox menu customisation region), so they can select features from a category and drag and drop it into the program at the location they wish and it will generate that function.
