If you’re enjoying the design insight from the Medium blog this week, here’s a mini thread of Cassidy working through some updates to AppCenter. We have these sorts of discussions and iterations every day behind the scenes, but it’s always fun to share a peek behind the curtains!


I worked a bit on AppCenter this past week. With Flatpaks mixed into updates and app info pages, it means updates sizes will *seemingly* balloon—but that’s not actually the case. 🧵


Check out Onboarding—our new app designed to improve the first-run experience and updates on elementary OS—and learn how it fits into an upcoming major update to the OS. Plus, dive deep into the iterative design process behind the scenes.

When an app wants access to your location on elementary OS, it has to ask. We show a prompt telling which app and how precise it’s asking—and you can always revoke access later in Security & Privacy settings. Because your data belongs to you, and only you.

Thanks to our base, elementary OS 5 Juno users will now get these updated drivers too!

Something that kinda took me by surprise, there's a lot of emojis that I just don't see in Twitter on Android... But I see them all in the browser on elementary OS! Absolutely nailed emoji support.


Prepare for our Twitter to get back to normal. And by normal, we mean more responsive and definitely more GIFs.
