Two UI Breakdowns of the week

This week's chosen workflows are from "Apple's Books App":

  1. Adding a note
  2. Quickly jumping to a page using a slider.

Breakdown #1

The Books app lets users access different types of files, like pdfs and epubs, all in one place. It's a great app for reading and learning. Users can easily add notes as part of their learning process, and they're easy to find later.

Breakdown #2

Jumping to a specific page can be difficult, but the Books app makes it easier with two different methods. Users can use a slider or a search function. The slider is special because it helps users quickly find bookmarks and other important parts of the text in context.
