I love this. I can actually see a tablet side-app for an IDE being a cool idea to make the hardware easier.
To clarify, as a designer I don't care about cryptocurrencies except in terms of abstract idealism or fears about the future in terms of what could happen to money, but as a designer I find the technology of the blockchain fascinating in its potential.
The exciting future is decentralized and secure systems for voting and other social systems that currently rely on poorly managed central systems.
I'm not sure you are going to see much interest from the broader design community until cryptocurrencies do something other than get traded in an attempt to get money.
Sure Ether is meant to run dapps, but does anyone here actually use a dapp on a regular basis for anything? If you aren't in the cryptocurrency world can you even name one?
What exquisite torture. I want Flinto adaptive handles and scrollable sections and hovering, but I want other design app's UI and plugins, and another app's ability to share prototypes easily, and another app's this and that.
Like I get that this competition pushes all of them to be better, but many times it feels like they are all just versions of the same app that specialize in slightly different tools or refinements.
The ONLY design tool that has truly broken this paradigm I feel is Webflow, but that is more appropriate for just web design than UI design outside of the web.
Prototyping is a great addition, but definitely will need some iteration to compete with Invision.
I just hooked up a simple app flow I already had in Invision, and while it was super-easy to do so (easier than Invision since you can select specific elements) the actual preview experience was poor. The in-app preview window simply failed to show anything, and the web previewer is not as intuitive for sharing with others.
For example in Invision you can tell the preview to maintain its scroll position when switching to a new page which allows for seamless prototyping of dropdowns or hover states. In Sketch preview it jumps to the top of the page every time.
Looking forward to seeing where this goes. Still not decided on which tool I'm going to use most in 2018. Maybe when I get my hands on Invision Studio...
This appears to take a slightly different approach than BST does. This adds full window dragging and min/max shortcuts based more on mouseclicks than dragging to the screen edge or keyboard shortcuts.
Curious to try it out.
Unfortunately improving the layout doesn't improve the content.
If Figma just allowed for branching and merging it would essentially be the only tool your team needed to replace that entire workflow.
I want to stick with Inbox since I far prefer it over original Gmail, but sadly they don't seem to want to update the app for iPhone X or add any more features like emailing to contact groups from Google Contacts.
Email is in a sad state today, and now I have to choose between a bunch of mostly identical looking Inbox/Mailbox clones.
Fantastic, I keep forgetting how powerful CSS 3D transforms and perspective can be.
