It’s simple, you’re killing the onboarding experience.

Handy is a company was a fantastic value prop?—?“book top-rated professionals for all your home needs”. I use them to schedule reasonably priced deep cleans of my house once every couple of months. You can consider this a plug, I think it’s a great service. It’s a simple idea, and a powerful one, get stuff done around your house. However, when you open the app for the first time, you’ll see this: Sorry to single you out Handy, I still love you. It’s a carousel of onboarding cards for me to get to know this app, and it looks familiar because it’s what we typically see when we open apps. This is one of the most pervasive cliches in app design today and something often blindly dropped into a design without much user centered thinking. Let’s deconstruct this cliche so you can identify the telltale signs: 3–5 dots that signify cards you can swipe through Read the full article…

Thanks a lot for this awesome tutorial and kudos for taking the time to explain all the important aspects of bootstrap 4, I really appreciate it. After reading your article, I was playing around with some bootstrap 4 classes in codepen and noticed that .img-responsive is no longer used in bootstrap 4 and they have replaced it with .img-fluid. I believe, you were trying to point out .img-fluid here as the following examples reflect that. Thanks again for this amazing article Ohans, keep up the great work :) Read the full article…

This DIY Nintendo Switch can play the retro games the real one can’t

The Nintendo Switch is great for a lot of things, but when it comes to playing retro games, you’re better off looking at something like the SNES Classic than Nintendo’s current-generation console. Or, if you’re like Tim Lindquist, a hardware modder / electrical engineering student at Iowa State University, you build your own Switch-esque console, which through the power of open-source emulation software, can not only play retro Nintendo games, but basically any retro title you can imagine, via Hackaday. Image: Tim Lindquist (YouTube) Lindquist’s device — cleverly called the “Nintimdo RP” — goes beyond being a simple Raspberry Pi emulator, though. Rather, like the actual Switch itself, its a full-fledged portable… Read the full article…

How The Darkness and Quake Helped Shape Wolfenstein II

Jens Matthies has made a name for himself by showing the gaming world his spin on IPs that may not be his own, but that have been forever changed as a result. Today, Matthies is the creative director at MachineGames, and is about to release Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Before his work on Wolfenstein: The New Order and its sequel The New Colossus, Matthies worked at Starbreeze Studios. In its infancy, Swedish studio Starbreeze cuts its teeth on original IPs The Outforce, Enclave, and Knights of the Temple: Infernal Crusade. For its fourth title, Matthies and the rest of Starbreeze worked on an unoriginal IP, which had some cult-classic street cred, at least for movie fans. Writer/director David Twohy’s sci-fi action-horror Pitch Black was about to have a cinematic sequel, and Starbreeze was in charge of creating a game prequel that would tie in to the universe – The Read the full article…

PUBG Creator Talks About Xbox and the Future

We caught up with Brendan Greene, better known as PlayerUnknown, during TwitchCon and spoke with him about the future of his runaway hit. Greene sees the future of PUBG as a service, where you buy the game and it evolves with time, rather than working toward a sequel. “We still want to polish and refine, add more maps, add more assets,” he said. Greene told us even when the game was still a mod, he imagined it would make a great eSport someday, saying the TwitchCon PUBG Omen Challenge was the sort of spectacle he hoped to one day see. For the upcoming Xbox One version of the PC megahit, Greene told us he believes the community will drive the “competitive edge” of the game. Read the full article…

Knox Storage: Facebook has extended its custom hardware development to include storage, which wasn’t included in the first round of Open Compute releases in April 2011. Its new storage prototype, known as Knox, houses up to 15 disks in trays that slide in and out of the rack for easy maintenance. Knox features a hinge that allows each tray of disks to hang at an angle vertically, after it slides out of the rack, making it easier for staff to replace disks in the upper area of the storage rack.

7 insane tech sneaks from Adobe Max 2017

One highlight from Adobe Max 2017 was the event’s Sneaks session. Here, attendees have a unique opportunity to preview radical innovations from the company’s research teams that might – or might not – make it into the products.  Get Adobe Creative Cloud We already showed you Project Lincoln, a new set of data-driven drawing tools that enable designers to make stunning infographics, graphs and charts without having to resort to templates or coding. Instead of using data as the starting point for an infographic, users start with the creative design and bind the data to it.  The graphics automatically adjust based on the data, shaving hours  potentially days  off the creative process. If you haven’t seen the video of Lincoln in action, and you make graphics like this regularly, you need to watch it now.  But that wasn’t all we saw at Max Sneaks. Here are seven additional highlights from Read the full article…

Life Is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 2 Review

By the end of the second episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, titled Brave New World, I found myself filled with a hope that everything will turn out okay for these characters – even though I know it won’t. I’m primed to care more than I thought possible, given that anyone who’s played the original Life is Strange already know their ultimate fates. Insight into Chloe and her relationships with the other residents of Arcadia Bay has been the strongest element in the series so far, and despite the same awkward dialogue and some dull fetch quests, Brave New World does well by cementing what matters in this story. Chloe Price’s world continues to crumble around her, with the shining light of Rachel Amber as her only reprieve. School and home life are both thrown into question as Chloe faces expulsion and her mother’s ridiculously antagonistic boyfriend, David, Read the full article…

The case for single-purpose devices

We are so caught up in our daily lives with various digital distractions that we don’t realize it. Email, Slack, WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, Twitter, you name it. The average person checks their phone 150 times a day. 150 times. That’s not good. And, some of us, touch, swipe or tap our phone 2,617 times a day. That’s insane. I have a Kindle. I read books in there. I don’t want it to read emails, watch videos, browse the Internet, or do anything else other than allowing me to read a book. In fact, it should feel and look like a book. With no backlight, and a papery feeling. I think there is a case to be made for single purpose devices. In an era of interconnected, always-connected lives, we need to know when it’s time to step off the digital treadmill. This should be hardly surprising though. We, with our smartphones, are a Read the full article…

The Greatest Print Campaigns of All Time: Volkswagen Think Small

You’re a web designer living large in the 21st century. Your job is defined by screens and software. What in the world could you possibly learn about design from a bunch of old dusty print ads? The answer of course, is “a ton.” Today we’re examining one of the most famous print ad campaigns of all time. The Volkswagen “Think Small” campaign. How did a funny looking car that was named after a bug, known for being slow and manufactured in factories built by Nazis ever become iconic to a generation of post-war Americans? Great design and fantastic marketing. Think Small Cars were fashion statements, testosterone boosters, muscles on wheels. As the 1950s came to a close, Doyle Dane Bernbach (DDB) and Volkswagen decided to completely destroy the status quo for automobile ads with the “Think Small” campaign. The 50s and 60s were a time when cars weren’t just a Read the full article…
