    "Everything counts". Perhaps, but how much you consume stuff doesn't count for much imo. Life is more about things like the strength of your relationships and what you give to humanity as a whole — much harder to measure with an app, but much more worth focussing on.

    The visual design of the app does look nice though. And I like the ethos of "Digital products are tools, not a center of someone's life. The app is visible when you need it, and keeps silence if not."

    It makes sense that they'd be exploring ways to visually group bits of information, as their results increasingly go beyond a simple list of links. "Cards" are a known and usually pretty effective pattern for this, so it's a bit of a no-brainer for them to try it. I'll reserve judgement until I can try it directly myself (going incognito doesn't work for me).

    Hey thanks for the feedback about pricing. We review our pricing periodically, and take into account what the audience for the product is saying about it, so the feedback is useful.

    Not yet, but we are planning one. What would you want it to do?

    Hey thanks for the suggestion, we're definitely planning to build one, but every bit of feedback like this helps us prioritise it against other things – so, noted! :)

    Today we’ve added a new type of element in Atomic called a Container. Containers let you create scrollable regions and masked elements in your prototypes, and can be set to scroll horizontally, vertically or both. You can create multiple scrollable regions on a page, and even nest one inside another.

    Containers can also be used to mask any element, or set of elements. Container masks can be animated to hide and reveal elements during page transitions, and can be used with static images, animated gifs and any other elements in your design.

    Give the new Containers feature a spin, I'd love to hear what you think. If you've already got an account but your trial has expired, just DM me your email address and I'll hook you up.

    No real hacks at the moment for that. We see real benefits to designers designing each state in a page first, then being able to wire those things together. Means that each state is surfaced visually in the tool and can be reviewed & commented on if needed. In saying that, as I mentioned before, we are looking at ways of supporting other types of in-page interactions.

    If you're having specific issues with blurriness, that might be something we can fix or find a workaround for. Please contact us through the feedback mechanism in the app or email support@atomic.io and we'll look into it.
