Hi Hunters! My name is Andrey and this is a fantasy about how App Store would look like if it was launched in the far eighties. Data on apps and their ratings are taken from AppStorio. Bootstrap theme BOOTSTRA.386 is a design basis.

@tkachenko this is awesome haha!
@tkachenko I was going to ask if this was BOOTSTRA.386 well done.
@j_mcnally Yes, it’s based on cool BOOTSTRA.386 project ( https://github.com/kristopolous/... ) which implements Ncurses interface pretty well.
Looks better than today's App store!
@ourielohayon May be ;) We love power of simplicity too!
I would share this with some oldies in my professional and personal life but for the former I think Grindr being in the top spot means I shouldn't :P
@stttories We need to be more bolder =)
Woot! Maybe I'm old but I love seeing these retro design projects come back around like this. It's also become mainstream trendy, the Sacramento Kings announced all the home games would be in retro colors and uniforms for instance... A personal bias but would rather have seen it in Mac OS 6 or 7 :D Nice job!
@duanewilsonsf I also was considering the idea to base the interface on first MacOS versions. But as for me, even they looked more modern than the magic of black and blue screens of Ms DOS & Unix OS.
Reminds me of Norton Commander:)
@tribaling Yes, it looks like Ncurses text-based user interfaces library https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nc... And many applications from eighties are based on it.
@tkachenko I see, I didn't know that. Thanks for sharing
