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).

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

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.

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.

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

I don’t know any sources targeting the mobile travel market, but here are a couple of good mobile design resources.

Pttrns covers mobile design patterns and includes screenshots from a wide variety of apps.

Capptivate focuses on mobile app animations.
