Jason Fried's TED talk "Why work doesn't happen at work" is a nice compliment to this post. http://www.ted.com/talks/jason_fried_why_work_doesn_t_happen_at_work.html

Some things I've found useful in create more usable apps (if you can meet with your users): -Ask the user to draw a UI on a piece of paper (simple - spend a few minutes) and have them explain how they want to use the application; design the UI with the user instead of just presenting them with one to test. -Show the UI design to the user before it is connected to the back end; if you need too, hard code some sample data so they get the idea of what it might look like and how it would work. You will probably change part of the design at this point, and that's a good thing.
