Blog for iOS

Late 2013

To help our users manage their blogs when they're out and about, we released a native iOS app, later accompanied by an Android app.

Blogging has always been close to my heart, so I was happy to help scope the project and oversee it to completion. I worked closely with my esteemed colleague Stephen Parker to finesse the style of the interface, which was quite different from the existing platform at the time. Our work on this app laid the foundation for our thinking around the Squarespace 7 interface language.

Since LayoutEngine was an integral part of our blog posts, I lead the efforts around updating it for touch input, making sure the native code and the webview worked together flawlessly and figuring out which components had to be which.

A very fun project all-in-all, which we're all still proud of.
