Two Quick Suggestions

Hi there.

I haven’t used this app enough yet, but I’m willing to try it more (I’m really not a fan of Zinio).

There are many things that can improve the user experience, but I won’t comment there yet. It feels like this app was written by someone’s kid who knows how to write a basic iOS app but is clearly not a professional developer.

1. Use your WD logo for the app icon. What’s there now looks like a default grab that Safari makes for an icon when saving a web link to your desktop. It’s truly terrible. Why didn’t you use your logo in the first place? It’s gorgeous, instantly recognizable to anyone in the know, and it’s your brand.

2. Change the title on the icon to something that fully displays — and displays well. What we see is, “WRITER’SDIG...” The icon I have on my for a saved webpage link to my WD Tutorials subscription fully displays “WD Tutorials” without truncation. WD, WD Mag, and WD Magazine are all shorter, so each should fully display.

These two items, alone, make me question the authority of all the articles you publish on “building an author platform” and any other marketing. People really do judge a book by its cover, and I keep passing over the icon for this app when quickly scanning what I have on my iPad. This just looks like a bad, default save-to-desktop icon.

Once I use the app more, I’ll add more. There are many user experience basics missing.

This app gets the basic job done, but it truly feels like an absolute minimal effort.
