The Small Things That Make the Difference

The Small Things That Make the Difference: "

I’m visiting a mix on SoundCloud (this one if you care).

The top of the page looks like this:


Then I start playing the mix, and look what happens to my tab:


Spot it? If not let me make it clear…


SoundCloud have always been very good at attention to UX detail and this might seem like just a tiny little thing. But it’s actually really very good. It means that you can spot in a multitude of tabs which one is playing. Love it a lot.

  1. Yep, SoundCloud have really got the edge on everyone else when it comes to UX loveliness. It is that, in fact, that makes me forgive their godawful MP3 encoder. I can deal with properly encoded 128kbps MP3 but whatever encoder they are using server-side is utter junk. However - as you point out - their UI is so good, I forgive them permanently (on the understanding that someone will eventually pull their finger out on the encoder end).
