We are thrilled to announced the release of App Deals 2.2 with awesome new features requested by our users (and some of our own)! Have you ever asked yourself these questions?

Appsfire as a project started over 24 months ago. At the time, iOS was already fairly developed, but User Interfaces rarely erred outside of the recommended guidelines (also by fear of not being approved), except for games where everything goes. Apple had polished and optimized the vertical scrollable view (UITableView for our Cocoa readers), and effectively entrenched this browsing mode as the golden standard for long lists of objects, which remains, to this date, a perfect way to browse lists of strings, augmented with the occasional icon and corollary information.

This UI/UX element was fine for us back then. After all, the initial version of the Appsfire app for iOS (up to v2.0) just needed to present its users with a long list of applications to share or browse, all of which had a title name, an icon, and a category. In fact, this is also how the iTunes App […]Read more
