Pushing AirTable data to a web wrapper front-end and packaging it on the app store is not what I would define as a "real" app. I would categorize this as a way to create very realistic test prototypes (which in and of itself isn't without merit).
lol at the shills, registered 7 months ago the first time this was announced just to post and upvote it, nice nice nice nice nice cool cool cool
He's saying that (same as almost every other post in this wasteland) there are two comments on this post, and both are from accounts that were created just to upvote this site the first time it was posted 7 months ago.
It's not subtle, but DN is dead and this is the content we deserve now.
Why do you think DN died? I feel like Dribbble suffered a similar fate. People use the platform, but finding interesting topics or receiving good feedback within the community has always been elusive. I wonder this all the time. fwiw, I'm still here—not sure what that says about me, though.
I would argue Dribbble is a much better and thriving community because it's about people actually making things. UX researchers and product people tend to throw a ton of shade at it, but in order to post you gotta throw up a shot.
Not so with other aspects of design. So generally the discussion tracts towards a bunch of arguing product designers or self promotion. None of which are that compelling.
The solution, of course, is to post useful or interesting professional topics and share articles that are legit interesting but no one does that. So here we are.
The other "DESIGN NEWS" reddit died a stillbirth for this reason too.
Awesome! This is a game-changer!
