    It's definitely missing a 'ding'.

  • Posted to Is using Sketch just a trend?, May 25, 2014

    Whilst watching some of Brandon Jacoby's redesign screencast (where, surprise surprise, Sketch is used), I stumbled across the following comment:


    Whilst true (and Brandon knows this, but opted to use Sketch), what happened to your suggestion of "keep using what you're using if it suits your needs", Cosmin?

    It seems like you're developing a somewhat unhealthy obsession of Sketch bashing. I'd love to know the root of that.

    This was my first foray into iOS design and I'm eager to do (and learn) more.

    In terms of my submission, there's nothing particularly groundbreaking, but the emphasis is on a clean and concise home screen view, as per the web version. I've had many an idea as to interactions I would implement and how other screens would look.

    Another hand raised here. Go for it.

    I may be wrong, but I get the impression that something's going on over at Bohemian Coding.

    They've not updated the beta for over a month (seemed like it was every 3-5 days previously) and they've also discarded their support forum.

    I hope they've got their heads down working on new features/bug fixes and they're not about to be acquired.

    It's somewhat similar to their recent refresh of the Analytics landing page.

    Whilst both Gmail and Analytics attract different types of user, I'd like to see greater cohesion here. Small things, such as Analytics having a full width hero image and Gmail having fixed width upwards of 1270px (although both are responsive). Gmail utilises padding perfectly, whereas Analytics looks far too squashed.

    It's almost unreadable given the line height of the body text.

    It's awful purdy.
