Twitter is testing a new interface for its mobile applications on iOS and Android, which involves rounded profile images, buttons and other features. It’s unclear what advantage going “round” would bring, as the style’s adoption among app makers and designers tends to be more of a trend that ebbs and flows over time, rather than a format that’s proven to have a significant advantage over the classic and familiar square/rectangular style. One argument for introducing rounded icons could be that it makes it easier to differentiate an app’s users from the content — like the photos or albums being posted to the service, for example. (You can see an example of this here on Quora where a Facebook designer showed how this worked in Instagram’s activity feed to differentiate the people from the photos they had liked.) However, for a service like Twitter that’s constantly tweaking its user interface and even how its core feature … [Read more...] about Twitter tests rounded buttons and thumbnails…because that’s the problem?
The opening scene of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV — a feature-length computer-animated film set in the same universe as the upcoming game — features Princess Luna, played by Lena Hedley, describing a world home to powerful crystals where an evil empire wages war against a kingdom protected by their leader’s magical power. It sounds a bit like a dramatic reading of the Final Fantasy XV wiki, as performed by Cersei Lannister. For all their success in video games, the creators of Final Fantasy have struggled to translate the franchise into the world of film. First there was the box office bomb Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within in 2001, which was followed by Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, a sequel to the most popular game in the series. Both movies shared the same problems: some of the most beautiful computer-generated visuals of their time, coupled with impenetrable stories leaden with shallow plot turns, forgettable characters, and barrels … [Read more...] about The Final Fantasy XV movie is a confusing, beautiful mess
As the cream of Europe’s entrepreneurs filed into the beautifully lit room at a European tech conference late in 2012, picking up their champagne as they went, a VC leaned over to Welsey Chan of Google Ventures and asked: “Why on earth are you guys sponsoring these drinks? You don’t have any investments in Europe, do you?”. Turning to his interrogator, Chan replied: “Not yet.” Thus it was that rumours started circulating around what Google Ventures might be planning in Europe. Fast forward to March this year, and amid the Caribbean-themed annual birthday party for Google’s Campus London — the co-working space created in the heart of East London’s ‘Tech City’ area — two figures wandered amongst the crowd, brushing shoulders with the likes of the Duke of York and other dignitaries. GV General Partners Bill Maris and Rich Miner weren’t just over for drinks. They had come to figure out GV’s next moves. Over … [Read more...] about Hire Someone Already!

In an effort to better cater to newcomers, Twitter once again is redesigning its app across mobile, desktop and the web. The revamp isn’t a radical departure from its prior look-and-feel or user experience – unlike when it introduced its own stories-like feature called Moments, for example, or when began reordering the tweets in your timeline. Instead, the update involves a series of smaller tweaks to things like where your settings are located, the typography used, the shape of its icons, and more. However, for iOS power users, there will still be a bit of muscle memory loss that’s likely to follow this update – just as there was when it relocated the revamped “Explore” section to sit where your “Notifications” tab used to be. The same will now hold true for Settings on iOS. Instead of tapping over to your profile, then to the gear icon, everything Settings-related has been moved over to a new left-side navigation menu. That means … [Read more...] about Twitter tweaks its design again in an attempt to woo newcomers
