A preview of Consume 2, showing graphs and the scrubber.
Previous versions of Consume used page indicators and swiping left and right to navigate between accounts. As we added more providers, customers were able to use app for more and more things. Swiping left and right to change the view was fine for less than four accounts, but not good enough when there was more.
Our solution was to maintain the left and right swiping ability, but to replace the page indicators at the bottom of the screen with a scrubber. This has lots of advantages: You can tap anywhere along the scrubber to jump directly to an account, or you can grab the handle and slide it around to move between accounts, and see a preview while doing so.
We’ll be submitting Consume 2 to the App Store in the next few days. Consume 2 is a free update for Consume 1 owners.

Awesome! looking forward to it :)
Tremendous work on the graphs. You really nailed the colours and layout there. Looking forward to the update. :)
Looks great mate - do you develop the apps yourself?
Cory, Matt and Russ: Thanks :)
Callum: Nope, I don't write any of the code. Bjango is a few people, not just me.
Beautiful polish Marc
Looks amazing... just curious how can it be a free update for v1 owners if it is a separate app?
Awesome work. Don't like the cog icon though.
Something about the size of the swipey thingy/knoby thingy and the shadow it's "casting" doesn't sit with me. Seems like the shadow is a bit too heavy making me think it's pretty high above the bar. The dimples on the far left and far right also seem too close to the left/right edges. Like, if you were to center the knob over them it would stick over the edge just a tiny bit. If you want that piece to be something that actually hangs over the edge, cool, but it doesn't make sense to me
Also, the fact that the section above the "scrubber" is angled and the "scrubber" isn't angled messes with my head. Seems to defy physics a bit…
@Crowded Road: It's not a separate app. It's just an update to the existing app. Luckily we were able to do it that way (we weren’t sure in the beginning, due to some of the changes required).
@Prakash Ghodke, AndyTheJoker, Made By Thomas: Thank you :)
@Eduardo Santos: What don't you like about it? We actually use this glyph in all our apps. I prefer it to the way a lot of other settings cogs are drawn—ours would work in the real world (hexagon inner and outer teeth that could mesh properly with other cogs). I’m all for changing it if there’s something that needs fixing.
Like, if you were to center the knob over them it would stick over the edge just a tiny bit.
It aligns perfectly when on the far left and right positions and is centred exactly over the notch (I definitely care about details like that).
Also, the fact that the section above the "scrubber" is angled and the "scrubber" isn't angled messes with my head.
That's a fair call and we almost removed the depth effect from all the UI. Still, the scrubber's depth would just be hidden underneath the screen's bezel. Certainly possible from a real-world object point of view.
Thanks for the feedback.
Love the scrubber. Actually, love it all. Very cool design solution in the scrubber/page indicator.
Great job Marc!
Lovely, Mark. You really managed to give Bjango apps a coherent style but without being boring or repetitive.
1. The shiny metal appearance of the UI doesn't fit very weel with the opacity of the knob imho: love the noise effect but it looks a little blurry if compared to the precision of the other elements.
2. The angle of the main view doesn't feel natural if compared to the scrubber, which I feel like am looking from the top.
3. Maybe I would give the update text a slightly darker color to make it just a little bit more visible.
Jonathan Lochhead, Jeremy Olson: Cheers :)
1. I agree. I've fixed the release version. The handle's edge is crisper.
2. Fair point.
3. The colour is unchanged from version 1. On the device it seems very readable. There can be a lot of data on the screen, so playing down some of the elements felt like the right choice.
I really like the "refresh" icon. The rest of the UI looks awesome too!
