Eleks Labs has written up a really interesting look at their Tesla Apple Watch app. The walkthrough of the process and technical details is a good read for anyone interested in doing their own Apple Watch work. Both their UX decisions and workarounds due to technical limitations seem like they’re going to be valuable lessons.
Incredibly appealing design concept for the mythical iWatch by Todd Ham. Looks like a mix of a iOS 7 and an incredible screen on a Nike Fuelband form factor.
Looks fantastic but I’d probably cut another 50% of the functionality demoed and simplify even further. My guess is Apple will too. If they ever do actually release an iWatch my hunch is that it would be a phone companion device focused on health/fitness and won’t tackle tasks such as initiating calls. I also hope it would have a 10x more helpful lockscreen than just a clock.
A new update bring us linked smart objects in Photoshop CC! Finally!!
Put the same smart object in multiple files, change it once and you’ll see the change everywhere it is used. Sorta. Watch the video:
Shiny Development has created a great resource for iOS app developers by aggregating the average App Store review times based on data crowdsourced from developers on Twitter.
Awesome mobile UX idea for floating form labels from Dribbble. Example code is also up on Github.
Adobe Generator is real-time asset generation within Photoshop CC and it looks potentially really cool. Automatically creates image assets (including simultaneous 1x and 2x files) while you work based on layer naming conventions.
Should you use a carousel on your website? No. Why not? Because testing shows they don’t actually work.
This great looking Google Maps-driven bakery site was making the Twitter rounds today. Give it several minutes to load but its an extremely interesting idea. Not sure I’ve seen a site powered by Google Maps before. Cute illustration and animations too.
