I just started using a similar app: Qapital. Uses simple "round-up" rules to build some savings. We'll see how it works out. Digit looks interesting, thanks for the tip.
Awesome. Downloaded the album for when imgur runs out of cash. Super helpful Marc!
Not everything is rainbows and magic and happy pat on the back. Should you directly hurt someone's feelings? No. Should you be able to take a scathing review? Yes. That's how it works.
On one end of the critique spectrum we have the overly positive, centimeter deep, meager little comments on sites like dribbble. Nothing is actually said. Ego stroking is rampant. Look at any of the top shots. It's not design as much as it is art appreciation in a lot of cases. (also we're all guilty of this, ily dribbble)
On the other end: harsh, sharp, angry critique. Just take a look at the comments in any given BrandNew article. What did that poor little pattern ever do to you? Did that logotype murder your pet? How did the color yellow become hitler all of a sudden? Honestly? (also guilty)
Though, I wonder how much of it is even a "problem" as much as it just is the nature of the industry.
We have all been cultivating acute senses of taste and preference for years and years. Some of us lifetimes. The result is a bunch of deeply opinionated people. I'd even say INSANELY optionated at times.
Something something opinions are like assholes. You put two or more together and it gets pretty pungent In a hurry.
Agreed. Scrolljacking is a bit over the top. But nice animations and overall presentation.
Edit: Oh right, you mean the scrolling. Yeah. No bueno.
Man, you said it but you shouldn't worry.
The type pairings are phenomenal, colors are spot on, photos and imagery are remarkable. Craft looks like fun.
Through and through very well done. Crack a beer!
Ah. Yep. I'm sure some of those comments are incoming.
While "brutalist design" is definitely the trend now, I think that hating on it is just as trendy.
I appreciated the huge, unconventional type in this design and the interesting work layered through it. Sure it's not a UX wet dream, but it's different and memorable. Agreed on the hamburger button.
Same boat. "Whoa flexbox is magic. WHOA CSS GRID IS MAGIC."
I'll have to dig into it again. Wouldn't be surprised if it was that simple of a fix. Thanks for the tip!
