Do you chat naked
Everything is displayed in text bubbles that deliberately mimic i OS’s i Message interface.“It’s intuitive because it’s a format that we use everyday, as far as i Message goes, Facebook Messenger, and Slack,” Lee says.A NEW dating app dubbed "Tinder for teenagers" has been used by children to send naked snaps to each other, leading to outrage among parents.
“Snapchat is a very hard one for parents to monitor, because the pictures more or less delete themselves.He and Williams realized, after prototyping a version of the app that used a Tinder-like swiping interface for browsing through new stories, that it feels most natural to go from a notification into texting.We already do it all the time.“It feels absurd to me that we talk to our friends one way, and talk to our apps by pointing and jabbing our fingers at boxes,” says Matt Webb, a technologist who last year wrote a lengthy and thoughtful post on his blog, on the topic of conversational UIs.I ran Quartz’s new app by Webb, who also co-founded the now-shuttered design studio Berg, and he says this is absolutely where apps are headed.
“It feels like there’s a new UI paradigm emerging, and it’s based around messaging.”Quartz’s app doesn’t tailor its responses to your interests; it’s based on a flow of content created by human editors, not deep learning algorithms. (A chat-based news app poses an interesting challenge for developers who would power it with deep learning: can you train a neural network to be unbiased?
But [the app] is continuously evolving because the news is continually evolving.”Williams, Lee, and the Quartz team started working on the app in earnest about a year ago.
