Reasons to Build Your Own App

I’m working on a very small To-Do iOS app and I’m sharing my process and my thoughts candidly through the process in a new YouTube playlist affectionately titled “Let’s Build an App“. As you already know, I’m heavily involved with my startup and that’s where 99% of my time goes, but, in the 1% I’m sloooooooooowly putting this thing together. And, for the first time ever, I have a new medium through which I can share the process which is my YouTube channel. Although I’ve been pretty candid and honest historically about these indie projects, I’ve always done it through blog posts and not through any video content. So, in that way, I’m having a good time with it and it’s a bit of a different feel, which is something that keeps it fresh for me. These are truly candid captures of my thoughts and there’s no established framework of my…

In fact, the iOS team (Jason Z, Tara, Dylan and Zach) launched the latest version last week! It’s got a sweet set of new features I’m excited to share with you.Hey!

You can quickly start a new one or swipe through previous Pings.You can also quick swipe on items in the Hey menu to mark them as read:Docs and Files List ViewThe team also added a list view for Docs & Files, with new file icons, smoother re-ordering, tap to preview images, and swipe to move and archive.https://medium.com/media/db8b86ef6deee8f9f11c7f1acb5ea7e6/hrefThese updates, along…

Mobile, Small, Portrait, Slow, Interlace, Monochrome, Coarse, Non-Hover, First

A month ago I explored the importance of relying on Interaction Media Features to identify the user’s ability to hover over elements or to detect the accuracy of their pointing device, meaning a fine pointer like a mouse or a coarse one like a finger. But it goes beyond the input devices or the ability to hover; the screen refresh rate, the color of the screen, or the orientation. Making assumptions about these factors based on the width of the viewport is not reliable and can lead to a broken interface. I’ll take you on a journey through the land of Media Query Level 4 and explore the opportunities that the W3C CSS WG has drafted to help us deal with all the device fruit salad madness. Media queries Media queries, in a nutshell, inform us about the context in which our content is being displayed, allowing us to scope…

Building a CSS Grid Overlay

Let’s take a look at what it takes to build a grid overlay with CSS. It will be responsive, easily customizable and make heavy use of CSS variables (known more accurately as “CSS custom properties”). If you aren’t familiar with custom properties, I’d highly recommend reading What is the difference between CSS variables and preprocessor variables? and watching Lea Verou’s enlighting talk on using them. This grid overlay that we’re building will consider a developer tool, as in, a tool just for us, not really our users. So, let’s not worry too much about browser support (If you do care, check out caniuse… data on custom properties). While it’s impossible to preprocess custom properties to behave exactly the same as native support, if you use them just like you would preprocessor variables, tools like the postCSS plugin cssnext can transform them into CSS compliant with older browsers. Preface A couple…

7 Exciting Adobe Photoshop Express UI Updates For Better Image Editing

Ever since its creation in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll, Adobe Photoshop has been an extremely useful tool for graphic designers and layout artists who are looking for a powerful application to generate fantastic images. These days, the power of Photoshop is now made available through a lighter version called Adobe Photoshop Express. What is Adobe Photoshop Express? Adobe Photoshop Express is a free image editing web and mobile application that enables users to edit images using practically any kind of device (running on Windows, iOS, or Android). It uses some of the basic but powerful features of the native Photoshop program, but in a lighter app (and again, it’s free!). The app interface recently got a whole design makeover after the last one back in 2014. The new interface was developed to match the increasing demand with regards to mobile photography along with today’s design standards. Adobe Photoshop…

Best Buy vs. The Apple Store

A recent shopping experience that really surprised meI was captivated when Apple opened its first set of physical retail stores in 2001. I’ve never owned a retail business, but I worked a variety of retail jobs growing up. What Apple did with retail was different.I’ve always been endlessly fascinated by retail. Watching people browse, seeing how people choose what to buy, seeing how moving stuff around in a store can have significant effects on purchasing patterns, etc. Paco Underhill’s Why We Buy is one of my favorite books of all time.When Apple finally opened one in the Chicago area over a decade ago, I rushed over there. I was in awe. What a unique retail experience. Just wonderful.And for years I enjoyed visiting the stores. Whenever I needed something Apple, I’d go there. I’d rearrange my schedule to shop at an Apple Store.But in the last few years, the stores have really…

Pure CSS Horizontal Scrolling

The following is a guest post by Pieter Biesemans. Pieter is a front-end developer at Audience where he loves styling things with SCSS. He’s going to dig into what I’d call a bonafide CSS trick. The web is a rather vertical place. You read a web site like you read a physical page: left to right, top to bottom. But sometimes, you want to step away from the verticality of it all and do something crazy: make a horizontal list. Or even crazier, a horizontal site! I’d be nice if we could do something like this: /* This isn’t real */ div { scroll-direction: horizontal; } Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. It’s not even on the roadmap for CSS. That’s too bad, as at the company I work for this would be quite useful. We do quite a few web presentations. Presentations are a very horizontal thing – usually…
