Spacial Interfaces

July 30th, 2015

Interesting write-up on Medium by Pasquale D’Silva Creative Director at Elepath. He says this about Spotify:

One of the most spatially confusing, while popular pieces of consumer software. To describe how Spotify’s interface makes use of space, would be to describe a rat’s nest of wires. I challenge you to effectively sketch it on a piece of paper.

I agree. Same goes for Apple Music. Incredibly haphazard UX.

He calls out Facebook Paper, which I love, for being a bunch of superfluous interactions jammed into an interface on the iPhone. I get that. Perhaps I like Facebook Paper so much simply because it is far less cluttered when compared to Facebook for iOS.
