    My Pro 3 does have this, but it's under the kickstand along with any other legally required logos.

    The more recent surfaces have even less info under there.

    It's not just the keyboard commands and the scrolljacking (although that is annoying) - it's more to do with the fact I don't want to have to learn what is essentially a whole new OS just to read a few articles.

    I didn't even get the instructional popup when I first visited the site (I don't know if you turned it off?) but when I did find it by pressing space (accidentally, space usually scrolls...) I was overwhelmed with the overview page. Hard to read vertical text that's truncated due to a short viewport height and thumbnails that are too small to actually read the content inside them.

    Plus the scrolling seems all over the place with the scrolljacking in all directions. Please don't try to fix what isn't broken. You don't know better than the tried-and-true method. You just don't.

    I don't really understand what happened with your UI. Looking at the designs showcased here show a much simpler design that looks easier to navigate and more suited to your content.

    Overall I think you need to go back to the drawing board with some aspects of the site. It looks like you have some nice ideas, but the actual execution is confusing and distracting from the content.

    Only just saw this reply, sorry. Whatever is changing the scrolling on the page (smoothscroll.js most likely) blocks the 2 finger horizontal swipe to go back in Chrome for mac.

    That landing page scroll jacking is so goddamn awful. It's messing with my trackpad gestures.

    The app looks good though but damn it's a bad first impression.

    Disappointing news, but understandable if you really want to focus on getting it out there first!

    I hope you bring it to Windows soon though, then I can see our team desperate to get at it.

    This looks super great and I'm really excited to see more of this going forward.

    One question that's really sticking in my head right now though, is this a Mac only app? We have designers that use Windows too and it's a real shame that all of the big players (Sketch, Affinity, etc) only have Mac applications available. (Don't get me wrong, I completely understand why!)

    If you have a windows app that would really give you a leg up on the competition ;)

    Soo... What's slack? Like dropbox email?

    Looking at this from the perspective someone who doesn't already know what slack is, this ad doesn't tell you very much about how it works. I wouldn't even be aware it was an IM client.

    You are the NaN person alive on the planet.

    Welp. I'm a ghost.

    Ugh. All I wanted to do was read the page. I rest my fingers on the trackpad a second too long and suddenly I'm at the bottom. Looks fancy but it gets a 0 for usability.
