    I've been working on a concept for a reminders app for the past day or so, and I thought rather than attempt to explain it, I'd try my hand at some animation and bring it to life.

    Sadly I couldn't upload the retina version as the main shot due to the file size, but I've attached it for anyone interested.

    I like this idea, would you be able to tap the colour you want to select, as well as scrolling through them or whatever? Also why the black status bar icons/text? I read a thing by @Max Rudberg about it but I wanted to know if you had the same thoughts on it. I personally am not a fan.

    @Prekesh Chavda Yep, you could tap on them too, but I thought I'd only show the most 'visually interesting' interactions with this.

    And it wasn't so much an ideological choice in going with the black status bar as it was just general experimentation, perhaps subject to change. Although I do kind of agree with @Max Rudberg that it groups system information as a separate entity from the app, but I've not totally made my mind up yet.

    @Oliver Whitehall Yeah, I agree it does that and I'm on the fence about it. To me it just brings way more attention to it because of the contrast between the status bar and the icons/type underneath. I think people already know that's the status bar, and they're not going to confuse it for something else. I don't think it needs to be grouped so obviously, especially at this point where iOS is so old and it's users already know what's up.

    @Prekesh Chavda Good point, but I think it's still worthwhile to guide users a little. They might know it's the status bar, but maybe subconsciously they don't separate it from the app in the same way when the colours make it look more integrated. I don't think it's particularly confusing either way though, it's mostly about visual contrast.

    There should be more information about what each color represents. Don't expect user can remmember all the meaning s of colors. He will be forced to switch and poke around everytime he needs a specific item.

    @Anton Kudin Still just a concept, maybe I'll add descriptive icons to each colour. The idea would be that you pick the colours you associate each list with, and users actually do have strong colour association in fact, especially in the context of organisation.
