    Still unsure with the layout. Since this should be placed within the main view, centered. While the "add repository" is placed on the upper left part of the layout. So there has to be a way to "guide" the user how to start using the app.

    A image on the center that says start by clicking there, sorta like Things.app ?

    Yes, sort of.. but after an attempt, it looks odd and unnecessarily busy because it is placed within the main view. While Things did it within separate window.

    Does the loupe show on the page? Would be tempted to remove it and have an arrow pointing directly at the button.

    @Ben it's exactly the very first mockup, but in scaled-down view it's not too obvious. That is why I went ahead with the loupe..

    Nice! Not digging the font's letter 'p' though. In your last shot and in this one too it makes me trip over the words that have a 'p' in them. Isn't there a way to change the 'p'? Overall it's a nice font.

    @Leon or Vincent yes, the "p" is bit odd, but I'm too lazy to tweak it :) Thank you.

    Haha, fair enough (it's Leon this time ;) btw). There's this app that makes it really easy though, it's called fontographer if you're interested. http://www.fontlab.com/font-editor/fontographer/

    @Fares OK. Is this a help screen or the page where you can add an issue? If it was the first screen you saw when signing up it would be good to have an arrow pointing to that plus button at the top, otherwise the loupe is fine for things like documentation.

    @Leon Thanks, been a while since last time I use Fontographer. I think it was still under Macromedia (now you know how old am I) :D

    @Ben actually this is some sort of splash screen but with guidance.

    @Ben this screen will be displayed on first launch (there is no 'sign up') and when the user removes all their repositories from the app.

    @Randy I just think it might be nicer like this (rebounded). Rough draft but you get the idea; I think "in page help" works a lot better than showing a screenshot of how to interact with an app.

    I tend to agree. I haven't had a chance to give Fares my feedback yet, but I think that makes sense. Thank you :)

    @Ben Thank you for the suggestion, very much appreciated. It's exactly what I mentioned in my earlier comment. I'm working on the next iteration.
