Capptivate.co

Capptivate.co captured fleeting transitions between app screens and delightful animated UI elements that we might otherwise have lost forever as apps and operating systems evolved. It preserved integral and tricky to communicate aspects of app design, sparked new ideas, and functioned as a kinetic pattern library for designers and developers working on iOS apps. The project was inspired by pttrns.com by Robin Raszka and Mobile Patterns by Mari Shelby.

You have probably already realized the bad news:

Capptivate.co redirects to this GitHub repository and the iOS app is no longer available in the App Store.

Here is some good news:

I’ve uploaded the videos, screenshots, and metadata from the site to this Github repository, so that anyone who relied on Capptivate.co for inspiration can still access the materials.

Thanks so much to everyone who visited Capptivate.co, it’s all yours now. I can’t wait to see what you do with it!
