REFRESHING AS FAWK SO SEE
Sick tricks, bro.
Great work all the way around!
Updates look awesome. Well done!
Fuck yeah, Tim.
Tim: I'm sure you probably noticed this, but the orange notification popup still uses the heart icon... It should probably be changed to a star to match the new metaphor. But the... Baby steps. ;)
I'm thinking along the same lines as @Iain MacDonald:
• Popular (second icon) used to be a heart. In my opinion, the new star makes much more sense: It shows the "top" or "popular" photos, which aren't necessarily photos that you like (read: heart) — think old popular icon.
• Incoming or "Likes/Comments" is represented brilliantly in the fourth icon by a hybrid heart/comment bubble. I think it's a very smart execution, and those who use Instagram will have no trouble quickly understanding what it represents (aside from the obvious fact that it's still in the same place as the similarly functioning tab in the old design).
• The reason the "Profile" icon isn't represented by the notorious "silhouette" icon (like in, say, TweetBot), is because this tab encompasses more than just profile. It also includes the app settings. So the icon showing an almost contact-card like icon with extra lines indicates detail to me. I'd say its a pretty well-executed merge of a profile/settings hybrid tab.
@Jesse Gardner To reiterate, there is no "new metaphor" introduced here; the star is not indicative of "liking". Nothing has changed in regards to a heart indicating liking. For example, when you double tap a photo, you see a heart to indicate likes. The icon next to a photo's like count is a heart. The incoming likes/comment icon contains a heart. The orange popup notification shows a heart next to your likes. Hearts = likes.
The popular tab is now more sensibly indicated by a star rather than a heart. The reason this makes sense is because the popular page doesn't necessarily relate to things that you've "liked", but merely to photos that are popular (think popular in context of celebrity e.g. "star").
Hope the Android version looks this good!
Just made the update, looks great.
You're the man! Great job on the redesign.
Please don't tell me that you intend to keep some separation from the borders and the bars? I've been working on an app with that very same peculiarity, I hope yours turn quite different from what I'm doing. That being said, great update for Instagram.
Overall it's well executed and feels very fresh. I like it in the app a lot. It looks clean and crisp.
My only criticism is that having the camera button blue makes it really difficult to discern which button is selected. When I look at the popular section, it looks like both the popular and camera items are selected.
Well done, love the toolbar!
Super crisp. I really like the updates. I do miss the hierarchy of the button nav at the bottom. You know... The button that takes the picture on a camera usually has a sense of "primary action"... And while you achieve that by color difference and placement... I sort of liked how it had an overlap and was visually different from the rest of the nav bar. But whatever... It all still looks really great and I am glad to see it on my phone.
Thanks Mr Van Damme :)
Icons without a label?
Awesome update, awesome UI. Love the Share button!
Good Work Mate!
i like new UI!good job man!
Great job! Nice improvements and it feels even better to use.
What I would like is to have a nicer looking filter bar. I liked the previous solution more than this one. Hope you'll change that, too.
That's the spirit Tim! Awesome job!
