Two UI Breakdowns of the week

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

  1. Change Reading Settings
  2. Sharing a Note/Highlight

Breakdown #1

Changing and customising layouts to read better is a in-depth experience on Apple Books. The choices though are found only if one has a keen eye and is interested in customising the reading experience.

See a quick audit below ‡

Breakdown #2

Sharing is available only when the user actually digs a bit deeper. This makes the Books looks like a closed off platform and does not allow for quick sharing access. Unfortunately, customisation of share options is also limited to just stock apps.
