Hi all! I'm the person who made the teardown - hit me up with questions or comments if you have 'em!
Thanks for the teardown Samuel!
It'd be interesting to see how the iPhone experience compares to the Blackberry/Android/etc experience.
I'm totally interested in that, as well. If the interest is there, definitely considering grabbing as many non-iOS/Android devices as I can find.
On that note, if anyone out there has an old Blackberry or Nokia they'd like to send screenshots via, I'm GAME.
To add: The use of the correct keyboard is a mistake I see sometimes, but whatsapp gets it right.
PS great great work on these I share them with my students all the time!
Good point! And thank you!
The onboarding is so simple, and yet if the mistakes (example being auto-cursor on some fields but not other obvious ones) were fixed it would seem even simpler. Nice teardown.
You have to wonder if they left a million or two on the table, right?
How do you onboard 450 million active users? Speed. Love it!
Design is much more than what it looks like, isn't it? I'd love to see people assess a product beyond just its appearance as the norm!
What happens if you click the "Invite!" button?
No idea. I didn't want to spam my entire contact book!
