This looks... bad. But hey thanks for the heads up!
The teardown, or the product? Hopefully not the former! (if either at all)
The product. You never let me down.
Am I the only one that's annoyed by the fact that they treat input fields, buttons, headings, prompts... exactly the same way? No hierarchy or differentiation at all, just style for style sake —and it doesn't even look good.
I definitely thought it was an... interesting choice. As a user, I was confused at several points, but I guess you could also say it was memorable & distinctive.
Yet another nice teardown!
The password recovery setup process is different and takes care of some back and forth, but I have to say it seems clunky to me. Maybe because it's so out of the blue? You go from allowing push notifications straight to that email screen. Quite jolting—although I'll be honest, I have not tried YOing, myself.
I actually tried signing up twice, and the email confirmation step came at two different points -- I think it was triggered on a timer, not an action. Still weird though.
I also wonder if people with multiple addresses will have a hard time remembering which address was used if/when the time for pw recovery comes around, but at least it's less immediately intrusive than sending them out of the app completely!
Hi all! I created this teardown, so any questions or feedback are gladly accepted right here -- please fire away!
Just wanted to say this is the 3rd or 4th of these teardowns that I've come across of yours...and I love them. So useful and actionable to see and apply to our own projects.
Keep them coming!
Also, for such a simple app, I was surprised to see how confusing their signup process was. I would have thought there would be an ability to use it without an account...where you could just choose to have certain services "Yo" you.
Glad to hear it! I was surprised I had 84 slides worth of commentary on such a simple service, myself!
