I would like to share with you the idea for
page I had in mind when I first heard of the new change prior 3.8.
I think this aproach UX and UI wise is more clear and simple.
By putting the icons from "Manage apps"
page in the tiles and changing the button to lead to "Arrange apps"
page instead, we would also remove unnecessary step and menu item. In this way everything that has to do with apps would be contained in one place.
While doing the quick mockup I realized that there isnt anywhere any descriptions of what the apps do. I think a description should be mandatory for all apps otherwise its hard to people to know what they actually are. For example we assume people know what "ActivityPub"
is. While coming up with explanations for the mockup I realized that myself I am not 100% sure what "Articles"
really does and I couldn't find any info about it anywhere either. I assume what it does, but that's just my guess.
What do you guys think about this?
