    Perhaps it's just in the circles I float in, but it's definitely become a go to for lots of people I interact with since they split the less useful check in functionality into a separate app a while back. Regardless, I have said the same thing about Yelp, which definitely has a larger user base (at least in the US). Different user tendencies in a different market seems like a fine reason to me if it's validated though - was mostly just curious if there was a specific reason for doing this.

    Certainly well designed. I can't help but think of Foursquare though, which provides the same information (if not more) with contributions from a much larger user base. Why would I use this over that?

    It would be great if we could all just agree to strike a balance that works within the context of what we're designing, and never rewrite or share this undying article topic again (unless there's truly something new to add).

    This is neat, but I dislike that it positions itself as "putting how designers worked in 2015 into perspective". There's no perspective. It's just stats without context.

    Looking backwards in time at a world history rife with the oppression and exclusion on non-white males doesn't justify a lack of diversity within any given field today - it shines a spotlight exactly the issues you're trying to say aren't issues.

    I almost want to get to a point where I can caress products. That's humane. You don't click people.

    Some quotes in that trailer definitely irked me, but this one takes the cake.

    I'm on board with their reasoning, but their solution is basically a hamburger menu (read: icon that puts the onus of understanding on the users shoulders) in a different location.

    Admittedly, I was cynical from the get go - "Re-inventing" aka "I'm about to make a small change and present it as something radical".

    It's like the design equivalent of The Room
