Working on headers

This week I’ve been working on updating our page headers to be able to show more data. We like how clean they currently look, and don’t want that to change too much. We also knew that not all users or situations will require extra data. So we had to come up with a balance between allowing some users to quickly see extra data, and not interfering with those who didn’t need it.

For this we came up with a hidden area under the header that would slide down when you wanted to see more, and slide back up when you didn’t.

Animation showing a header panel slide down to reveal extra details.

We had previously only shown app details on the app overview screen, so we then moved these details into the new header section, allowing the information to be viewed from any screen within it. Making it much easier to find and access when you need it.

And that’s it! We will continue to add more data and features to the headers as we go along, but for now it works well and can be replicated across all sections of Kwoosh.
