UX Snippets: Avoid mismatching instructions and actions

Money Dashboard is an excellent app. Apart from when it’s telling me that I’ve gone over my monthly coffee budget.

Or when it gives instructions that don’t match what you see on screen.

'Please click OK' next to a single button which reads 'Got It'
Click what now?

It’s not a huge deal since it’s pretty obvious what the intention is, but it’s just one more little mental leap that the user has to make to do something.

And we know that we shouldn’t force users to think.
