I've been working on a web app for 4 months, and did some usability testing with about 10 people today, with mixed results.
Some people said they hated my design, others had no comment about it, others had funtionality suggestions or complaints.
I am super glad that I did the tests so I can iterate quickly, but honestly, it made me feel inadequate. It's hard to get feedback from people on something you love so much and have worked so hard on, which is one of the reasons I think a lot of startups fail- (they're scared of the truth).
I'm just wondering if any of you guys out there have felt a little unsure, uneasy, unconfident, etc, after getting feedback on your product.
I have tons of faith in my app and didn't get any damning feedback by any stretch of the imagination, it's just been an emotional roller coaster.
Anyone have similar situations when they launched their mvp?
