Next-generation gPodder user interface mockups
Back in December 2010, Andrew started with the first mock-ups based on the screenshots from meego.com. After that, we decided to go a step further and make it look even more futuristic (this was partly inspired by Metro - two months before #feb11). Most of the title bar and podcast list design have been kept (although evolved) in the current design. This is also the first time that Andrew integrated the playback feature into the mock-ups - a player "widget" that can be pulled down. In the current version, it's still a widget that can be brought in with a tab, but it's placed on the bottom.
It's worth looking to see how differently the same functionality can be presented to the user.
