Redesign to something nicer and more minimalistic?
I am in love with eText. I recently switched from my Macbrook pro to the powerhouse HP Envy laptop.
OSX to Windows 7 has been an "okay" experience.
One of the things that really sticks out to me is the fact that most, if not 80% of all, windows applications I enjoy using do not have aesthetically pleasing appearances.
This results in "just a little" loss of user experience (in my opinion).
eText has been the single most greatest thing I have used on a computer (pc/mac) in YEARS.
Version 2.0 introduces mouth watering features that I have so very longed for!
That being said, is there or will there be an update in this UI?
As a front end web developer and someone who works by evaluating user experience. I think it would be a great idea to redesign the eText.
This doesn't mean - make it all crazy with colors or add bloat "stuff". It simply means - creating something of a better experience.
Here are some areas,
1. Redesign the tab structure (maybe to something similar to Google chrome)
2. Drop down menus (in some cases can be converted to overlay boxes)
3. Pop up boxes can be converted to "overlays".
4. scroll bars can be invisible until hovered upon
