BJJ is an amazing "lifestyle". Don't believe me, check out this great video from +Crazy Monkey Defense Australia 
 
CMD's Monkey Jits program is more than just self protection. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu  is "A lifestyle".

I'm not one to post about games, but here's an exception. +Sam Ritchie developed an engaging and challenging spelling game called "Bird Nerd". You should check it out and learn a few new words. Best of all, it's Free!
Get Bird Nerd on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.

Building a better Bakeshop, Part II

iOS7 calls all developers to bring three things to mind when updating their applications: Deference, Clarity, & Depth.

When updating the settings page I focused heavily on clarity; making sure options were clear to the app user as to what happens when they make a particular action.

The ingredient view has offered me the time to not only continue on the path of clarity but also deference. I've spent a lot of time thinking about what it is you should see when you tapping on an ingredient. In the old Bakeshop, you would see the setup information, i.e. Name, description, ratio, etc. While this information is important, it is not most likely what you are tapping on an ingredient for.

An app user is tapping on an ingredient to do something with it or find out more information, and this is what happens in Bakeshop now. When you tap on an ingredient you see the information that is most useful to you. You instantly see scaling information which was hidden away before or not easily configured through other views.

This is deference in action. The overly complicate UI is gone and you are left with the content you need, when you need it.

Nothing like a little boxing with +James Woodfield-Jones +Crazy Monkey Defense Australia to start the day! But watch out though, James is pulling out his noodle and toys.

Hard at work on another big update to Bakeshop. Follow along!
 
Building a better Bakeshop

iOS 7 has changed the game. As a developer, it is always a challenge to keep up with changing design styles and keep your apps looking fresh and unique. Now that we've spent years layering in textures and making (sometimes) confusing interface decisions, we have the opportunity to strip it all away back to its core.

I figured a good place to start was with the settings page in Bakeshop. Gone are the lengthy messages and cryptic links. Here is a concise view that is instantly clear as to what the user is being asked to do.

The next version of Bakeshop will be taking the same approach set out here; clear and concise design. Offering you the information you want to see when you need it. Keep an eye out for future posts as development continues.
