    Would have loved to see something less linear - maybe emphasize the curvature of the U, compositionally, to suggest a change of direction without being quite so brutally straightjacketed and blocky. The humanist vibe of the photography and vector illustration clash with the heavy black box minimalism, but i agree with others here that it's a functional palate cleanser.

    This is very good advice. And OP, don't worry, this is a much more common problem than you may think! Every UX designer I know struggles with the problem of trying to justify their decisions scientifically, when it sometimes feels more like we're field medics than surgeons in an operating theater...

    For what it's worth, if that's your concern, this upgrade was only $30 for owners of the previous version. Personally, I've found these really useful!

    Most people are happy with IKEA until year 2-3 rolls around and their dresser starts falling apart. But it's maybe telling that the IKEA metaphor is pretty on-point for modern apple hardware, planned obsolescence and two-year replacement cycles and all.

    There is a lot of animation for animation's sake and it makes the whole affair feel a bit too try-hard. I second other comments about feeling claustrophobic.

    I agree that would be useful, but that would also be an entirely different post. I clicked this link expecting to roll my eyes but I actually thought it was a pretty accurate, clear, and useful set of reminders for the next time I refresh my stuff.
