    Thank you for the constructive comment! I've updated the story title.

    Click-bait titles are an issue on many sites. Ironically, the solution is better UI design which communicates titles should not be click-bait. ;)

    "We have failed" was the title of the linked story. How would you have titled this post?

    I'm not usually one for posting yet-another-Medium article, but I found this one compelling. My initial reaction was "this guy got up on the wrong side of the bed" until I read his examples and realised how poor the design was despite them coming from major tech companies.

    It's so easy for designers and, generally, people who work in tech, not to look outside their bubble and talk to real users. The takeaway for me: if you're not watching people use your design and asking them questions along the way, you have no idea how easy/difficult it is to use.

    So short-sighted.

    I think you mean Intercom?

    +1 Magic Trackpad completely eliminated my wrist pain. I also find it much more efficient for navigating design work. (It basically takes everything Apple learned from iOS gestures and applies it to the Mac.)

    1) This is awesome. 2) I can't believe it's 2017 and we're only just getting features like this in a true UI design app. I'm so glad it's finally happening.

    Seriously folks, don't upgrade until at least a week or two after a release when bug fixes can be addressed. Sketch releases almost always have bugs, and BC unfortunately hasn't done much about it. Always, always wait.

    I'm surprised you're actually surprised by this. The core app icons have been inconsistent for a long time. Also, what Gracjan said.
