What do you think of this layout?

I know that the current movie and TV show layout isn’t that great in landscape mode. I think the layout in portrait mode is quite good, although it needs a few changes, but the landscape one is really in dire need of change. Tried to work a bit on it tonight and get a mock-up of what it could look like.

What do you think of the design above? The idea is to present you with the most basic information when you view a movie or show. That includes the title, description and cover art as well as the backdrop image. Then you’ll be able to swipe between the movie overview, actors, reviews and movie trailer.

I haven’t coded or tried anything out just yet, so I can’t say for certain, but I’m fairly sure that this would work very well on all kinds of devices.

  4. I like it! It would be nice if you were able to come up with something similar for the TV Show overview. Maybe switch out the trailer and review panels for an episode browser?

    • Yes, definitely. I’m pretty sure this is how the movie details view, TV show details view and movie trailer details view will be. Fitted to each type of content, naturally.

      • Maybe with the tabs in TV view, have Overview, then have the others seasons that are available instead of the current Overview, then Episodes with seasons tabs below those tabs. Looks clunky atm. Obviously with this implementation the tabs’ size would scale according to how many seasons are available. Is this possible?

  5. Looks good man. After using it on my Logitech Revue, I’d be happy with the trailer view to be on another page and not the front page cause it slows down the app and the user experience with it there ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, totally agree. The YouTube player is quite slow at the moment, which is also one of the reasons why I’m moving it. Having said that, the player is in development, so it may get faster.
