Sleipnir 3 for Mac action panel

The main concept of the new Sleipnir is “Advanced linking between smartphone and desktop”. The thing that makes this advanced linking possible is the “Action Panel”. It is located at the top-left of Sleipnir.

My heart was moved by the design of the main actions “Share”, “Read Later”, “Save”. Because I was so moved by it, I went to ask the designer in charge about the design used.

1. Share

This looks like a memo with a paper-clip attached. It seems that this originally had the feeling of “Add a few words to this clipped page…”

Below that the list of authenticated services are aligned in an easy to understand way.

2. Read Later

As you probably can see, the above shows “a book and bookmark”. The simple ribbon-like bookmark also closes like in real life.

3. Save

I was personally taken in by this one. This cute label. However, even though I thought it was cute, I couldn’t quite understand why a label.

When I asked, “rather than saving, I imagined a parcel for the “Send” to cloud service action, and so attached a parcel tag”. I was further impressed after hearing this.

What were your impressions? I am not in charge of designing so I am just introducing this as a fan at the company. It may feel a little like self-glorification but I wanted to share the same feeling with everybody out there too.

If you were impressed and want to check it out for yourself, then please go to product page below to check out for further information and download it.
