Who set this type?
by singling out "your" and "you", it's WAY more user-centric. /troll
Worse, who let this horrible copy through? This is 2016 lol it can just be "Take your playlists with you"
BUT THAT IS MARGINALIZING CREATORS
I love what happens when you take one of the two "and" statements out:
Create your playlists with you!
Maybe next we can get a search bar on every screen? Having to tap back to the home nav to search is the most frustrating part of the app.
I've been anticipating this for months. Many of my coworkers continue to see variations of menu options in the hamburger, mine have only continued to reduce over time.
I'm so excited for this.
You can swipe on the navigation bar to reveal the menu no matter how deep you're into the navigation stack.
Better than tapping back to the root view. I hope they'll release the tab bar soon.
I think if you think Circular is overused you are in a bubble.
I love this.
This is fantastic!
In my opinion, business/heaviness in the UI is the biggest issue with Spotify's UI, and the typeface change really helps to alleviate this density.
Same font as Airbnb. So hipster.
grotesques are very in at the moment. i generally find them a little goofy, but I'll take anything over proxima nova at this point.
We use Proxima Nova here and it has awful numbers that make me want to cry.
We use Proxima Nova in an analytics tool, I feel your pain.
I'm kind of actually surprised they made such a big deal of this on the iTunes description. This is not something that typically matters to the average user (at least from a "check out this font" perspective).
This is the type of descriptive update that I'd like to see in every single app. I feel sorry for those apps that use Minor improvements for speed and reliability as an update description... It's not something that bother me, but I would like to know what I'm updating.
Or something along the lines of "We update every 2 weeks for your own good. Ok thanks byeee."
Oh yeah, also that! That just makes me feel that they don't really care about those who are using the app. My question is; how can they expect users to know what's new into an app? Black magic? Even if they are user testing the app, that's not the right place to do it. That's cheap user testing for me. But who cares?, that's just my opinion. :)
Oh, absolutely agree. I'm just saying that from a marketing standpoint... it's rare to see the space used for pumping up a new typeface. For designers, it's exciting. For my wife and just about everyone else not in the industry... wouldn't care at all. To be fair though, those people also probably don't read the update descriptions... so the message is probably going to the intended audience in the end! Heh.
dunno, a lot of regular folks definitely noticed their slight change of green.
That's almost certainly because it got a lot of attention in the press when the design community lost its collective shit over what I still think was a great decision. That awful color they used to use looked like baby shit. No idea why everyone was so vocal about a change that only added more energy to the branding.
People hate change.
It's surprising but I guess it makes sense, they received so much noise about changing their green a while back.
Interesting, they've been using it in their playlist covers and marketing collateral for ages, I've never seen it used as a UI font before though.
 The character in Circular feels a bit at odds with the darkness of a lot their UI, but that's just my opinion.
Beautiful typeface, but so overused at this point.
They were one of the firsts though. They adopted it a while ago and finally rolled it out to the app.
Of course it is. I mean I love Circular (that 't', mmmmm), but I'm worried it's reaching Gotham/Proxima Nova levels of saturation.
Barely noticeable change except to me it's a little harder to read. From my memory, it's a little heavier than whatever they were using before and needs a little more space (tracking) when it's white-on-black.
If you put them side-by-side, the font update makes everything appear smaller. It's a nice font choice, but the size difference makes everything feel less readable.
Is the full font name Lineto Circular?
come on... this looks great!
Looking at the app on my iPhone 6, I feel like they should have gone with a lighter weight variation of the font for the hamburger menu. I don't know why but it just bothers me for some reason. Other than that, I approve.
Not sure it's a step forward... much harder to read imo.
I wish they'd sharpen up their logo. It's a pixelated mess.
