So earlier today I did a quick poll on twitter and app.net as me and my lovely developer were curious about the general feel of App.net and what did people (mostly other fellow designers) think about it.
As you can see from the shot we are working on a new client and it's currently built to be very flexible for the dev to switch from twitter to ADN and to Tent.io without too much work. It is a fully working prototype and we can't wait to show you more!
We are really curious to hear what you think about it and what would make your favourite ADN or Twitter client, taking in consideration we want to build something clean and beautiful, which unfortunately lacks from current clients. :)
The secondary shot is just another angle of this same view, I had some things I didn't want to show just yet :)
@fffabs & @fabs
A little mistake, the beautiful pink icon is Rogie not Juan. As if you didn't know him.

I WANT THIS NOW PLZ!
But seriously, this is something I would use every day. :)
Dude you cray.
To support @Vaibhav's comment: Please take a holiday. Let us designers all make some rad stuff. Please.
On a serious note: Them icons looks sexy. IMO, they are too big. Any particular reason for that?
@Nikh aha thanks, they look much better on the actual device. There is a reason they are bigger than other clients and it's because you interact with them :)
I'll take your word for it. For now. ;)
Who is Rogie?
@Daryl Ginn I think @Rogie is just some random dude.
@Fabio Basile @Daryl Ginn It is I, JUAN.
As I said on ADN, I want it. Just my 2 cents, but are we sure using a birdhouse for the Stream is the right way to go?
@Coard Miller ah thank you! Yes the birdhouse is actually our temporary icon, it will definitely be replaced and the icons redesigned ;)
This looks nice! I want it for twitter!
I want this. Now. :D
Yeah i was just working on a twitter client with the side menu navigation. Project died :( If you release this, I'll switch over to either other network ASAP!
I truly appreciate the simplicity in this ui tho. Nice work as usual!
@Mitchell Bernstein thank you! The side panel is still a bit experimental as we are still discussing the easiest way to use and navigate the app. Might post it later for some more feedback and see what you think :)
Most beautiful client I have seen in a long time. Where do I send my money please? :)
This is great, and I actually really like the look of the big icons. Excited to see more of this!
@Carl aha thank you!! Working hard to get the best experience on both ADN and Twitter :)
@Robbie Pearce yay thanks! The bigger images are actually quite nice when you see them on the device, you can clearly see the user.
What icons did you use for that interface?
@Martin LeBlanc it's a mixture of customised Helveticons and Inventicons :)
@Fabio Basile actually, testing is the most important part of picking between the side menu vs the bottom tabs. For an app I'm working on now, we are devoting two versions- one with the side menu, and one with the tabs. The iPhone 5's screen change makes it sorta difficult. So testing is now a must!
Looks beautiful, especially the typefaces you chose.
@Mitchell Bernstein absolutely true! Had some past experience where we had to rush a release and the bug reports came flooding after some issues encountered on old devices we'd never thought of testing. For this we are planning a closed beta list, a very small circle of testers helping us with all types of feedback.
@Ben Regali thank you Ben! We fell in love with Freight Sans and Avenir, which we are currently using throughout the app. I am not aware of any other apps using two fonts (especially Freight Sans, beside some small elements in Instagram) so it'll definitely be interesting to hear from testers :)
