Zine App | The Middle Dot

I just built a mini zine with weekly posts of cool stuff to share with others. I wanted to explore other methods than traditional blogs, newsletters, or social media. Something that helps readers pause for a few minutes a week and consume/share in a new format. Would love any thoughts/feedback!


Very well designed app

Clean, simple, interesting! Very good flow! I read everything, just to see the Watch, Read, Play… section!
Good work!

Thanks for checking it out! Anything you’d tweak?

Nice. I’m not familiar with Zine so perhaps that make me take a little longer to understand the core concept… which if I do understand it… it’s simply a place to post a main idea of a post and tag on the extras of what you’re reading/playing/working on etc. Yes?

One suggestion that’s super easy to make… change default width to small. Or at least medium. I think that will look better with the layout you have when viewing on desktop. Settings > Appearance > Default Width. You can also adjust that locally using containers, but I think app wide would be favorable here.

I would think in the next level. User creators
Having an area for user submissions for content, having a admin area to aprove (or not) the content.

However as soon as this new level adds up… there will be a considerable higher interaction, updates, users, etc… that somehow have to be considerated in future plan.

A Zine is short for ‘magazine’, so it’s like short-form content. In print, they’re usually small … can even be folded into an 8-page version from a single sheet of paper. This is an example that inspired me years ago. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maxtemkin/maxistentialism-zine

Thanks for the awesome suggestion! I’ve known about that default width setting, but didn’t think about it for this. Great call, I just updated to Medium!
