Fast software, the best software

I love fast software. That is, software speedy both in function and interface. Software with minimal to no lag between wanting to activate or manipulate something and the thing happening. Lightness.


Akkurat sånn føles det å jobbe med et program som er raskt (og intuitivt). Jeg har sittet Photoshop som har hatt et sekunds lag mellom hvert menyvalg, eller Word som sliter med justere fonter. Tror jeg får høyt blodtrykk da. Så er det apper som er så fantastisk kodet og designet at man bruker dem med glede. Men det skriver Craig Mod best;

let’s end with an example of a piece of iOS software that is pure craft: Things. Things on iPad and iPhone is one of the most tactile, fast-as-you-can-move apps around. Each animation is purposeful. Mainly, it is fun. It’s a fun app to be in. To put stuff into, to rearrange. It is old. Things has been around for over ten years. I was glad to open it ten years ago, and I am glad to open it today.5

Designer, koder og skriver. Tar oppvasken for å vaske opp.
