In this installment of Design Snippets, we look at visual design elements in a transit-planning app called Circuit, and particularly how contrast, a clear visual language, subtle motion, and use of keylines make the app feel simple and easy to use.

It's really nice to see these kind of videos, but one of the main features of this app, that light blue navigation line, is almost the same colour as the sea. At a glance (to me at least) it looks like a river or a canal. Thanks for sharing though.

Farbklex that's exactly why we built it. Quick and easy access. I can't imagine living life without those shortcuts now.

OMG, yes. When I saw him activate the grid and layout boundaries mode through the quick option it blew my mind. Why didn't I think earlier if there is an app which can save me so many clicks.

Wonderful. It's one of those apps that I wish I have a real use case for so I can interact with it a lot. ✨

He said to use "sentence case" but on the app he is using on his phone it seems to be Title case… focus on 1:30 🤔 Btw it is an amazing video and I hope to see more videos like this!!

Its great to have a consistent GUI, but with the slow update adoption(come on most Android phones are still in Lollipop!!) we will never achieve a consistent interface across the OS and its apps within Android.
