With the introduction of Apple’s iOS7, the world of mobile has finally, and irreversibly, gone totally 2-dimensional — we’re talking flat design, flat colors, and flat buttons.
In the early years of computer interfaces, skeuomorphism — a design approach that imitates the 3D physicality of the real world using shadows and surface gradients — was a necessary approach to help people better understand how to use computers. But those visual tricks came at a price: greater GPU load, slower responsiveness, and a ton of wasted visual space (something that’s a premium on today’s tiny mobile devices).
Our apps’ new modern, flat design abandons skeuomorphism in favor of increased responsiveness and outright sexiness. But there’s more to these apps than just a slick new paint job ― the tibbr5 mobile app also has a lot of improvements under the hood.
What’s new in tibbr5 Mobile:
- Redesigned flat User Interface
- Revamped profile page
- New posting interface — post with location, links, and/or photos
- Enhanced photo rendering — upload multiple photos in a single post.
