Last year we heard about new iOS 7, which substituted IOS 6. Their new product is the biggest change to Apple’s iOS since the arrival of apps in 2008 and it comes a complete redesign of the look and feel of the user interface. We have updated our conference application to coincide with the release of iOS 7.
Flat User Interface Design is a minimalist aesthetic principle or design language currently used in various graphical user interfaces. This is a trend that favors simplified forms, pure colors and discards effects of gradient or shadow. We used flat design in the newest version of our mobile application.
Next change, which is worth mentioning, was changing fonts used in our mobile event application. Substitution regular font to light gave effect of clarity. Moreover, reducing of a font bold to regular was perfect solution and it improved the quality of using our product.
New appearance of the top of a cell
Previous version of conference application didn’t limit place for the news source. Names were long and their size was many a time too big to fit into predicted one line of a text. In the updated version of the mobile application we used special limit – no more than one line of a text can be used in the name of an event. Generally, our product profits significantly after that change.
Flow of the reading
Icons of facebook, youtube, twitter that were used by the event application were moved to the right side as a counterweight to the color bar on the left. Thanks to this, text is now in one line and the flow reading is better.
Similarity and uniformity
People usually don’t like changes. We get used to specific, similar patterns and the newness are criticized or discarded. What do you think about new look of the facebook? To follow trends, we added gesture of ejection of channel selection similar to the transition to the main navigation in our event application. What’s more, we unified the look of the check boxes in channels choosing.
The conclusion is that all introduced changes let us achieve:
- Modern look
- Compatibility with current trends
And we have extremely developed!
