No, it hasn't. The National Democratic Institute (NDI) did a bit of less than proper formal usability testing: https://www.nditech.org/blog/2014/08/testing-one-two-three with details of process at https://nditech.org/blog/2014/07/test. Their focus was on their staff using it for their specific purposes, so the results were skewed, and led more to tailoring ...

I've always used Adminimal. I think it makes the Drupal backend as a whole much easier to use, and it's always worked well for me with the Civi backend too.

Bright and clean: I use Seven (ships with Drupal 7 Core - so well supported) as CiviCRM Administration theme - for nearly all of our projects. Easy to subtheme as well - making it a MySeven - if/when required.

The main factor is probably the resolution of the tablet rather than its size, but the UI is in general meant to be used with a keyboard and a mouse (or very very pointy fingers ;) For the mobiles, they have been several projects to provide a subset of CiviCRM features available. One is cividroid, an android application from the latest google summer of ...

John - There's an existing pattern for simply add the markup to the template for cases like this, and I think it's fine for this situation. So in Register.tpl, just add this markup after the label: <span class="crm-marker" title="{ts}This field is required.{/ts}">*</span> Note that there was evidently some spots where this technique was used / ...

Personally I often like https://www.drupal.org/project/liquid_coolness Simple, clean theme, that is still pleasing to see. Has liquid width, so if you have a big screen you can make use of it for CiviCRM screens. Not really maintained though.

There is also a CiviBartik theme that I use often: https://www.drupal.org/project/civi_bartik

I haven't seen one. Usually in cases like this I just make changes to the theme myself to account for things like this. Themes often times only take Drupal, its core modules, and some of the major add-ons into consideration for its theme. So when you use something else, like CiviCRM, you have to make changes yourself for usability.

CiviMobile received formal usability testing, but was never really completed as a project. It's referenced in passing here: https://civicrm.org/blogs/petermcandrew/civimobile-where-we-go-here. He gave an overview of the user testing process (which included eye-tracking hardware) at a presentation during the 2011 CiviCon North America sprint.

More usable forms/profiles is a major goal of CiviCRM 5.0. Creating a form creator that's flexible enough to meet the varied needs of many constituencies is a lot of work. Unfortunately, while CiviCRM is free to use, it's not free to write. Most of the folks who complain aren't willing to fund (or do) the work. Using Webform is certainly a crutch, but ...
