Normally application development is done behind the curtains. We never see it. Few applications have published any initial sketches, some come to light because they used Paper, and little else. We never see the whole creative process behind the applications, that’s why Jared Sinclair wants to change it.
Jared Sinclair is the developer of Uread for iPhone, the new fashionable RSS reader . He has already published on his blog the design of Unread for iPhone. Not the design itself but rather the concept and the different parts that make up the application, such as the decision not to incorporate a navigation bar and leave everything to gestures.
Sinclair nos is going to document the whole creative process on video , through his new channel on Vimeo. You can already see the first part of the video podcast series in which several concepts and the first sketches are introduced. The video lasts half an hour. It is interesting to listen to him talk about concepts acquired in other works, the creative process -from the idea to the final product-, thinking about how people interact and read news, how to transfer it to the application… Everything on paper and pen.
No doubt dedicated to those developers who want to know more about the design of an application and of course to curious people like me who enjoy this kind of material. Oh, and by the way, all this means that Unread for iPad is on its way . This will be Sinclair’s second solo development. We’re looking forward to having it in our hands to finally replace Reeder, the reader that’s falling a little behind.
