Beginning today, I will be publishing a UI/UX Design Resource every month that will not only feature a design, but also link to a website that I find helpful for patterns or a tool or app that has caught my attention.

Here’s introducing this month’s featured UI/UX resource – Mobbin.design

About Mobbin:

Mobbin is a hand-picked collection of the latest mobile design patterns from apps that reflect the best in design. Jiho lim, the founder, has hand-picked over 100 apps and 5,000 patterns (screenshots from iPhone X) from app stores of different countries, not just the US.

First Impression:

I just love the clean and minimalistic approach of the website. It’s a simple 3-column website. The best part about of Mobbin is that the designs shown here are from real live apps.

The column on the left is the main navigation, header and footer area. The center column is the main content area focusing on browsing apps, patterns, categories and search. The column on the right is dedicated to the job board.

An interesting thing about Mobbin is that you can customize the layout by hiding the job board but for that you would need to upgrade to a pro account. The pro account would allow you to:

  • Create Libraries
  • Export Patterns
  • Full Screen/Hide Side Job Board
  • Version Travel (coming soon)

I am not sure I would be upgrading to pro anytime soon, but what does interest me is the Version Travel feature. I wonder if it’s got to do with seeing how the current apps evolved to their current designs? Will have to wait and watch I guess!

Basic Free Plan Features:

As a free member, you can still do a lot, for example, browse mobile designs by apps or patterns and search for apps or patterns. You can also filter apps by categories like business, education, food & drink, etc., or filter patterns by components like calendar, list, etc.

The website also has a job board for designers and developers, pretty neat for sure!

Overall Impression

I am quite impressed with the website and already using it as my source of inspiration for patterns and trends that are live in the wild. Don’t forget to check it out yourself, bookmark it and let me know your thoughts.

Have a website, app or pattern inspiration link to share?
