Backlog officially releases new UI

As we previously announced, the Backlog team has been working on a complete overhaul of the application’s UI to modernize its usability features and design.

We’re proud to announce that the new UI has been officially released and, as of April 7th, is now the official design of the Backlog app.

What’s new in Backlog?

Some aspects of the new UI will feel familiar, while others may take some getting used to.

Here’s what you’ll notice:

It focuses on what matters most.

We’ve simplified our navigation, placed items of greatest importance where you’re most likely to see and use them, and taken a more minimalist approach design.

Operations are quicker and easier to use.

We’ve consolidated screen transitions and reduced the effort it takes to complete an action. You’ll spend less time putting information into Backlog, and more time doing your actual work.

It has a fresh look and feel.

Simply designed, clear pages with beautiful graphics give you the modern experience you expect from a powerful application like Backlog. Looks may not be everything, but they sure make work more fun!
