Our release of Felt 2.0 included powerful new spatial analysis tools along a streamlined UI. Here's a quick review of the UI upgrades we packed in for users.

At Felt, our mission is to make mapping effortless for everyone. Every part of the product is designed for ease of use, and we've been diligently refining our user interface to bring you an even more seamless and efficient mapping experience. Here are three big upgrades in the release of Felt 2.0 that will seriously impact the speed and fluidity of your workflows.

1. More room for mapping with our sleek new toolbar

The first noticeable change is the relocation and redesign of the toolbar. By moving the toolbar to the top and reducing the size of the illustrated icons, the new design optimizes space for a more expansive map view. By incorporating dropdowns, we've opened up room for essential tools to take center stage. Features like 'Upload from URL' and commenting, previously buried in menus, now sit prominently at the top level. This shift allows us to emphasize core functionalities while paving the way for future inclusions without cluttering the interface.

2. Full-screen mode for enhanced presentation

Felt is the best place to make and share maps on the web – and that includes presenting them live from your screen. To make it easier to move from editing to presenting, we introduced a full-screen mode, readily accessible at the top, enabling users to share their work on a clean, expansive map. Press the play button, or use a simple key combination (Command + .), to effortlessly switch to this unobstructed view, ensuring an immersive mapping experience whenever desired.

3. Faster and more fluid map styling interactions

Perhaps the most substantial enhancement lies in the creation of the left pane, where you now interact with your layers, legend, and list view. The new design makes selecting and manipulating layers more intuitive. The left pane offers quick access to layers and their corresponding inspector options on the right, enabling seamless navigation and real-time visual updates to your legend as you modify elements. This transformation simplifies editing, eliminating the previous 'up and down' navigation method, and provides a more fluid and efficient workflow.

These updates aren't just about relocation or visual changes; they're about enhancing your interaction with our platform. Our goal is to make your experience smoother, more intuitive, and ultimately more enjoyable. Alongside these major updates, we've implemented several minor yet crucial UX improvements. From better organization within your workspace to more discoverable features, every adjustment contributes to a more user-friendly environment.

At Felt, our commitment to continuous improvement drives us to innovate and refine, always with our users at the forefront of our minds. We're excited for you to explore these enhancements and experience the newfound ease and efficiency they bring to your mapping endeavors.

Stay tuned, or subscribe for more updates, as we continue on our journey to enhance your Felt experience!
