Spotify has given their iPad app a fresh new look, so Chris and Jonathan dive in to give it, and the iPhone app, a Design Review.
Spotify is a leader in the music listening space with millions of listeners. The app has to cover a lot of content, but that content is rich, so we dissect what they did right, and what they could have done better.
Google has launched a new email product called “Inbox”, which has a web version and mobile apps on iOS and Android. The main idea behind Inbox is a card based UI, grouping, and task management for email.
Chris and Jonathan take a look and review the design of the web and mobile versions, listen and find out what we liked, and what we didn’t and most important what we learned about design.
Wanna try Inbox for yourself? We do have some invites left, but the way it’ll work is the first listeners who are subscribed to our email list (look on the top right of the page) and tweet out the link to this episode will get one of our invites. We’ll do it for as long as we have invites left! Click here for a pre-written Tweet, or write your own and tag @DR_Podcast! Best of luck to everyone participating!
This week we cover Quad, a chat app targeted towards college students.
For this special episode we have 2 parts. First, Jonathan & Chris review the App like always, breaking down the UX and design. The second half, we invited the co-founder Mary Yang, and Design Intern Tawni Kuhn. We chat with them about the background of the app, how design functions in their company Appsurdity and how they value design.
This week, Chris and Jonathan take a look at a new photo sharing app 2by2! (iOS only).
2by2! is a unique concept in photo sharing because users can create double exposure images and share them with the app. In this episode, we go through the whole experience of using it, from onboarding to visual design, to product enhancements.
