We make on of the most popular video downloaders in the world
Software and InfoTech
We want something modern and simple in line with the Windows 8 design philosophy
Two main interfaces (desktop and mobile) and a few smaller ones such as the batch download and settings windows
As flexible as possible
Simple and clean with a lot of white space:
The product's main color is blue
Anything that doesn't match or contrast well
Simple, intuitive, fast, modern, clean, minimalistic
There have been some changes already in the latest version to clean things up a bit. Please download the beta version to see the most recent iteration of our v3 UI: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6607564/vdownloader-be...
We're looking to redesign the interface of VDownloader to more closely match the style of Windows 8 and make everything a bit cleaner and more user-friendly. In terms of application architecture we think the current system of tabs for each input method (direct download, search, feed, history, storage) is quite good though having DVD in the same list might not be the most logical since it's for output (burning converted video to DVD).
We might like to include some more functionality in the future such as recording (screen grabbing or otherwise), so this might be an additional input tab in version 4. For output we're thinking we might offer CD and iTunes for instance. We would like to have a design for these tabs although this functionality does not exist yet.
Please note that you are free to recreate the structure of the application if you can think of a more logical/intuitive way to present the functionality to our users, or even include controls or options if they make sense. You do not have to worry about any technical aspects as our developers will accommodate anything which is feasible and it's easier to take things out than it is to put things in.
