YouTube - Cinematic Dark UI / UX
#UX #UI #YoutTube #Design #Interface

- Having the darker interface allows the content to come to the forefront.
- The Next video is also more prominent slightly opaque to the right of the primary video.
- Promoting the voting interface of the thumb up and down console.

Cinema View Interface
- Removes the clutter and distractions into the background.
- Enlarges the primary video to take better advantage of the screen without the - too overwhelming full screen mode.

Get started with the beta releases  - 
Hi +Zoltan Demant, love your Weight lifting app (Seriously it's Awesome) and was happy to pay for that as it's a great app.

But this new Body Tracker one which I was psyched for doesn't do much but capture info to be used in a graph which you charge the user (quite a bit at least in my currency) to see. Am I missing something? Why would it be worth the users money to pay for the pro?

I tried to get the pro unlocker doesn't seem to work for me, I bought it through the app, does that make a difference?

Anyway will continue to send any bugs I see.

Again, thanks for making such a great and user friendly App.

+Martijn Vreugde I can see it being easily misunderstood with the old naming, hopefully the new one makes perfect sense and erases any confusion around it :)

Yeah you can definitely switch between the two. Thats the beauty of it, even if it might mean less $ on my end. Im fine with that as long as it provides the most value to you using the app. The 3,59$ price tag seems correct in terms of what Im going for, perhaps youll change your mind when more and more pro features get added.

Keep doing your thing and Ill keep doing mine! Lots of great stuff in the works :)

This is a hidden gem of a place. I love walking around here on a sunny day with my SO. Unlike most parks you do have to pay to enter, R40 for adults, however you can see where that money goes. The park is very clean and impeccably looked after, you also feel much safer than you do in most free entry parks. Highly recommend you pick up some snacks from woolies and have a picnic.

Weird, cool vibe. Have a small menu but take pride in making sure what they offer is good. Seem to have live music on occasion. Parking is not too great though.
