    Totally understand your point @Harper. Factually, those ARE first world problems. Yet that lens would mean we should qualify most UX improvement in Apps/SaaS as first world problems.

    Another way to approach this might be to use some of the underlying principles described to sharpen our eyes… so that we can collectively use more of our skills for social impact. ;)

    Thanks Adam! Very good point for the Experiences. Makes a ton of sense now that you mention it. I didn't even think of that.

    There are a few specific job-to-be-done around that area that aren't tackled. I had a few redesigns MVPs that I didn't take the time to include in this release because I wanted to keep it short, but I'll probably append them later because they really have a great opportunity there.

    As I mentioned on the Twitter thread, I feel like they are more focused on their other verticals these days (Adventures, Experiences, Animals). It's even more obvious on the home screen. Every time I see it, it feels like different product teams (one per vertical) are competing for my attention on the home screen. ;)

    I always wait before updates since the Sketch release that crashed every time I dragged an element… still eager to try this one out.

    PS: This kind of thread is a goldmine of user research for Sketch's Product team. Really hope they keep an eye out for these comments. Especially with the increasing competition between XD vs Figma vs Sketch.

    The 6,100$ ESC key! Probably worth it though, still have my 2013 and couldn't wrap my head around the idea of not having one in my next upgrade.

  • Posted to Research: 12 million images analyzed, these are the most used colors, Nov 06, 2019

    I'd be curious to see the the sampling. Seems to me like the data is heavily skewed towards skin color variations…?

    Nicely done. I believe the question that matters most is: what's the ideal audience of early adopters? We recently did a case study on Superhuman so I can't help but to ask myself if the inbox-zero-exec-power-user is the persona targeted by Juicy as well at this stage…

    Interesting! Very curious to see the app itself as I'm a slides.com power-user.
