    I tried another direction completely different for this upcoming swiss iPad app.

    What do you guys think about? Better or worse? All feedback welcome, thank you! :)

    WOW, big change in design. Hard to tell what would work better on an iPad, you might find the lighter cleaner design might work better.

    Wow, thank you very much for the feedback! I'm glad you like it. Personally I also prefer this version.

    @Tobias, yes I know that's such the problem with me, dunno how to improve that. Any thoughts?

    @zee7, thanks mate noted!

    @Jonathan agree with Tobias.
    Try "lucida grande" or "helvetica series" both are sans and awesome!

    Might I add to me previous comment, I love this design, was merely thinking out loud on my last comment.

    I think this is much more attractive than the last, but not sure if the textures really serve a purpose to the overall design besides "looking pretty." I think the other design is more functional to fit the project needs... just my $.02

    I do LOVE the highlight on the edge of the wood though. :)

    @zee7, ok will try them! Thanks :)

    @Anthony, I think you're right, but my aim is to give a pleasant experience to the user through the interface. That's why I'm using all these textures to make it "real". The other version is perhaps to much "simple" to give this kind of feeling.

    @Jonathan, understandable, but the main focus is the content and how easily it is perceived and consumed, sometimes simple is better, especially when you're dealing with a lot of content. Gotta dumb it down for the masses! lol

    The only reason I say that is because in this one I notice that your main content (the article) has a shadow being cast over it by the wood side nav... when in reality, the content is the focal point of the piece, not the wood side nav. Again, that is just the UX side of me coming out and trumping the design side...

    For the shadow it's on purpose: the user navigates through the articles by sliding them from left to right or right to left. So when the article comes to the left border it disapears behind the wood. Without this shadow I think it would make a little weird.

    But I totally understand your point, I'll see how to pop up better the content. Thanks for your feedback! :)

    This is by far the one I prefer. The darker colors and the deep tones work allot better on the eyes for an iPad app. You f*'´¨'* nail¨d it. Brilliant!

  22. The app is almost complete. I'm currently integrating the UI. I think the dark background of the last version was letting down the usability a bit.

    The panel you can see on the left is a popover. It appears over the content when the user press a button. It gives the possibility to "filter" the news sources by toggling the switches.

    And the logo is just a placeholder. Not sure about the app name yet.

    Don't hesitate to share your thoughts!

    Edit: The little switches are from Morgan Allan Knutson's Chutzpah kit.
