Mobile app research
July 6, 2015 4:23 PM   Subscribe

I am researching mobile apps similar to Airbnb and Trip Advisor--essentially popular apps that allow you to (a) search and (b) book. Any resource that critiques or breaks down how these apps work is extremely important as well.

I am also trying to look for different UI/UX design inspiration sites (could be beautiful interface designs, or even little GIFs that focus on functionality or effect aspects).

Mod note: Edited post to remove link to the design site -- if it's necessary for people to understand the question, you can link to it from your profile page instead.

What are you looking for? A list of examples of sites like Airbnb & TripAdvisor? Technical documentation of how they work? Style critique?

Response by poster: Basically, I am looking for a visual breakdown of these kinds of search and book apps.

Like, the design patterns they use? "Visual breakdown" isn't clear to me.

Response by poster: The latest trends in terms of interface design in general, and specifically for these types of apps if possible. New (visual) solutions for old interactive problems.

Best answer: Something like this site that shows teardowns of the user on boarding process in lots of apps/websites?
