@ryanboren I agree that the apps are not good, but what’s the app teams take on that? Don’t get me wrong, but from big guys like facebook and google it is mostly that they mimic the apps interface in their mobile version, rather than trying to squeeze the desktop interface into the mobile browser size. Therefore I believe ultimately the WP App needs to mimic the mobile interface, which means the app team should be considered in all responsive topics?
@sonjanyc I like your wireframes. Especially this multiselect to create a gallery. I had the same thing in mind, as currently there are unnecessary extra steps involved, where it could just be done from the main media gallery!
@kLOsk I talked to some of the apps team today. Alas, I didn't come away with anything definite. There is still uncertainty. From what I've read and heard so far, the apps will continue as they are for some time, focusing on fixing bugs and bringing feature parity. The apps will, for the foreseeable now, use the UI conventions common to their respective platforms (hamburger on Android, bottom button bar on iOS). I'll encourage some information sharing on make/mobile.
@ryanboren thanks. I understand and have to agree now that we should deliver a top notch mobile experience then. It’s a bit of a shame to be honest, that Automattic is not jumping on the app train and taking the lead here… Wouldn’t be bad for wp.com / VIP neither...
Thanks for all the research @ryanboren, looks like a mess, but great to start having a sense of the scope. I've updated my wireframes with some notes and a slightly more detailed walk through of editing some images. I also like what @sonjanyc did with the contextual actions - seems like a winner. The accordion on the right in my set is based on similar ideas.
Are we meeting on Thursday? Or Friday?
Is the meeting today?
mhm I guess not...
Friday as usual
I've added some preliminary hand drawn wireframes of the mobile process to my wire frames folder. Inspired by image editing on Android and the current process in WordPress.
Looks like a good start. The way the menu overlaps the image in the editing window is awful
Review of mobile experience
Tickets to open on trac
Creating the feature-plugin on Github
Thinking about a modal-free workflow (image editing in the editor)
Gitter changed that from 6. to 1. :(
@kLOsk hipchat isn't an option right now. We're looking into other options. Let's stick to Gitter until we have something definitive from the project
mhm in this interview scott bolinger states 80% of mobile use is done via dedicated apps :-/
@kLOsk good find! certainly useful to know.
Though I think he is giving an overall stat, not something WP specific.
@mor10@sonjanyc@PabloPerea@smckeown and anyone else who wants to sit in. When shall we go over wireframes? I am pretty booked tomorrow, but fairly open for the rest of the week. I am in PST, what's good?
I'm pretty booked Wednesday, but wide open Thursday. I'm in EST. Any time is good for me. Who else wants to participate?
I'm out all day Thursday but I don't think you guys need me there
I am available Thursday and would love to participate.
Shall we shoot for early (PST) on Thursday? I am available until 10:30a. 8a PST work for everyone else?
That would work for me (=11am EST). Where do we want to do it? Hangout?
I am available on Thursday at 11am EST (5pm in Spain).
I would like to sit in on Thursday.... is there anything I should look at on Wednesday to be better informed before Thursday?
