    I haven't used it yet, but it seems to be a step up to Pixelmator's game — one that's slightly more geared to photographers. So, I do think they're competing with Lightroom.

    Photoshop for better or worse is less relevant than it was a few years ago and using it for more than heavy-duty illustration and graphic design doesn't make a lot of sense, so there's no reason for Pixelmator to stay positioned as "the alternative to Photoshop".

    Overall I think it's a pretty smart move for them to invest in doing their own thing and hope it pays off the same way it paid off for Bohemian with Sketch.

    If you don't want to pay the price of admission, just don't watch it.

    Films take a ton of work to get done, and calling this one an "adocumentary" just because you don't like the company's marketing strategy is beyond offensive.

    Get a fucking grip and stop being a dick about other people's work.

    Google Analytics Academy is the way to go for all the basics. There's a Udemy course that covers the basics as well, I started doing it once and it's pretty detailed.

    Also, the Luna Metrics blog is really good for learning some advanced features and workflows, can't recommend it enough.

    I second this. Love the InVision product and how far you've reached, there's no need for this flashy landing page — just show us the product, you already got our attention.

    This kind of communication hurts more than it helps at this point.

  • Posted to Dribbble is dying. Whats next? , in reply to Martin Heidegger , Oct 09, 2017


    I feel they are taking too long to find a viable business model for Dribbble (and DN especially). I guess that's what happens when you don't have vast amounts of venture capital to expand your team. I mean, does DN has a product and development team at all?

    In any case, I'm glad they're investing in design-oriented companies and hope they succeed, even if slowly.

  • Posted to iPhone X notch devs fixes ;), in reply to Cristian Moisei , Sep 14, 2017

    Yeah, it seemed to serve no purpose whatsoever to have a couple of UI elements tucked up there.

    My best guess is that they'll try to turn the notch into a screen for the next generation iPhone, but even if that's the case... wouldn't it be easier add the black bar and ask devs to expand the screen height a few more pixels next year?

    I've heard people saying that without the notch the X is visually the same phone as the S8, so that might be a reason as well...

  • Posted to Is the DN algorithm placing too much value on time?, Sep 07, 2017

    One thing that could help was publicly showing which users upvoted posts, when, and which company they're from.

    Would make it look really bad for vote-rings and spammers, and make it much easier to detect and take down by admins.
