PocketLib 1.6: Design refresh

PocketLib 1.6: Design refresh

Today we release the biggest visual update for PocketLib with a completely redesigned interface.


We modernized the entire UI of the app. Compared to the old version, the app now looks much cleaner and more mature.

We rebuilt all the small parts that make up the app, everything from icons and buttons to the navigation.

Library page

This is the new library page. You will notice that the layout is mostly similar to the old version, but now featuring our new design language.

If you open PocketLib for the first time, you will be greeted by a new welcome message, with quick actions and recommendations to find some interesting books.

Book reader

The reader was updated with a modern layout. On mobile, we implemented an entirely new bottom navigation, which you can drag up to see available actions, like displaying the table of contents or your bookmarks.

For larger screens, we updated the icons and added a new sidebar for the table of contents and bookmarks.

We moved some elements around in the PocketLib Store and removed the sidebar with the list of categories.
