One thought on “Speaking”

  1. The new mobile app for iPhone is a drgawonde. Not all bad but a drgawonde overall for me. First, the bottom is easier to reach most of the time than the top so moving functions to the top makes it harder to use. This is magnified by the fact that almost everything is now in the sliding side menu but that is accessible now only from a top mounted button, very annoying. Much less smooth action than on the previous app where all were right at my thumb. Which app is more pleasant to move around, Facebook or Twitter? I never thought switching b/t groups was all that hard so I don’t think the side nav is an improvement. I hate the side nav in the Facebook app and I don’t like it here either. You give it less real estate b/c now you condense the horizontal axis with the portion of the sliding window that remains visible. So same amount of effort but less useful. Not cool. Apple uses bottom 4-5 button navs on most native apps for good reason, it is the natural place to put them, right by your thumbs.On the plus side I really like the new stream/feed layout. Simpler and better display IMO. Easier to see different bits and easier to distinguish unread msgs from read. Also seems faster to me. Its obviously not a deal breaker but I spend a lot of time on the app and so a small UI drgawonde makes it a lot more annoying for me. It seems like some serious design horsepower went into this redo so I am interested to hear why we are back to a side nav and all the buttons pushed as far as possible from my thumbs. Yammer, what gives?
