Experiment 02 — Title-only, Magazine, and Card Views

By Edwin K

We all have different preferences when it comes to the layout of the lists of articles we skim. Some people prefer text only, some prefer large images, some prefer a mix of both. We created different views to let you personalize Feedly to what works best for you.

The purpose of Experiment 2 is to give the community the opportunity to provide feedback and help tune the designs.

Use the […] button on the top right of the Today view to customize the view and test different layouts.

Questions for the community:

Question 1. What do you think of the choice of the font and font-size? Are the lists easy to skim?

Question 2. In the new magazine view, we moved the images to the right to have a better alignment when some articles don’t have images. Does that work for you?

Question 3. Are you satisfied with the layout and density of the title-only view?

Question 4. Are you satisfied with the amount of metadata we surface in the article list? Do you have enough information to determine if an article is worth opening?

Question 5. Do you have any additional feedback on how we could make these views more useful and productive for you?

Looking forward to talking more about this in the Lab Slack channel!

What did we learn from Experiment 01 – smooth scrolling?

We want to thank the 200+ people who installed the Lab app and joined the Lab Slack. Your feedback and bug reports have been super useful.

We fixed most of the bugs as part of the new experience.

We also asked the design team to explore the two most pressing issues reported by the community: 1/ the ability to mark articles in batch and 2/ re-enforcing the feeling that the today page is not infinite. We will start sharing some design ideas on Slack shortly.
