New UI in the app, what do you think?

I think I am being AB tested new UI in the app. When I tap on my session at the bottom of the home page it opens a page which has the image of a mountain as the background. It used to just open an action sheet with options to manage the session.

Did anyone else see this? How do you feel about it?

I personally think it is at odds with the design of the rest of the app and it was jarring when I saw it. I’m not sure how it is relevant to the rest of the app design?!

Part of the reason I love opal is the design of the app and the gem colours and how that influences the colour of certain elements. The app is very beautiful really and calming, and I found the image of the mountain disrupted that.

I’m a big fan of the new update! I especially love the new splash screen they added on startup. I know the intent of the app is fundamentally at odds with creating a robust user experience (after all, the goal is that I’m not using my phone as much), however, the makeover was much needed, and, in my opinion, well done!
