    of the logo that we are thrilled to share with you today While we hope our work speaks for itself we wanted to share a few of the changes you might notice Reduced color intensity The hard edges in the old logo were a bit much on the eyes so we softened them up and reduced the intensity of the colors to give it a more agreeable Lisa Frank effect Better location iconography Apps that use location should always have location icons in them The old Highlight logo has none Now we have three Try forgetting that it s location based now Animation From a subtle pull to refresh icon to the playful bounce of a like button when you tap on it animations are a powerful way to make your app more fun and delightful In that spirit the Highlight logo now rotates in circles at all times You can almost feel the light breeze on your cheek as it rotates past you Audio feedback Audio is a uniquely powerful branding element Anyone who has hummed Buh duh duh duh DUH I m lovin it while biting into a Fish McBite can tell you this Now whenever you view the Highlight logo you will hear the word highlight repeated in a whispering tone to remind you that you re viewing it A cat Studies have shown that users in our target demographic love cats Juxtaposing the logo with cat imagery not only associates the product with something friendly and tactile it also gives the logo a sense that it s small to help users better understand that they can take Highlight with them in their pocket Finally to give the logo a more polished modern look we ve tried to make it as skeuomorphic as possible by adding an

    or that the girl across the room with headphones on is listening to the new Destroyer album all passively generated from the sensors in the phone Only what s relevant Over the past year the algorithms that power Highlight have gotten more sophisticated The service now understands that some connections are stronger than others For example if the person sitting next to you is from your hometown that s more interesting than if you both like the same TV show If someone shares your love for Math Rock that s better than if you both like Coldplay It also knows to act differently in different locations and at different times of day If you re traveling overseas it will scan a wider area for friend connections instead of just a block or two If your roommate is near you at home that s not very interesting but if your old roommate from Paris is in your city that s valuable information With 2 0 we ve reengineered the app the notifications service and the emails you receive to be deeply focused on finding these magic moments and letting you know about them at just the right time Only what s new When you run into someone in the real world you often ask them what s new Now Highlight works the same way When you bump into someone on the street a red badge will tell you if they ve posted new photos and updates since the last time you saw each other Just tap the badge to view them It s a great way to keep up with coworkers roommates and the people you see most in life 5X MORE BATTERY EFFICIENT With 2 0 we ve continued to optimize battery life The app is now 5x more battery
