    A few words: there are a bunch of improvements and considerations to make. Factors, that weren't accounted for. For example: not every post has an icon. I left aligned the icons because I wanted to introduce the main action (in my eyes) to a tappable area, namely the right. That would be the comments section. But this leads to a gap, when there's a post with no icon (and I bet a huge percentage of posts are without an icon). Further I decided to put nearly all of the information in this main view (upvotes, time, OP, number of comments, link). This makes it very cluttered, but I felt those were necessary. That's why I decided to truncate the title at line 1. This could maybe lead to better, shorter title management to make skimming even easier. Also, I wanted to keep each post at the same height, because posts with longer titles would take away much attention from the ones with shorter titles and I didn't want to waste space there. Having 7 posts in one view with this amount of information seemed fair to me.

    Additional interactions are explained in the LayerVault presentation.

    One more thing: I'd strongly recommend everyone to test every design out on the iPhone. Only by doing so you can assure perfect delivery. I've seen some nice looking entries in the browser, but when I opened them up on my phone I couldn't read a thing. Account for screen sizes.

      Thank you for the advice. My entry is a native app, so it looks best when you build it in Xcode and deploy it on an iPhone.
