iPhone Facebook App Slide-to-Shrink Message Feature

by Crystal Paradis-Catanzaro

The Facebook iPhone app has a slide-to-shrink message feature.

What fun accidentally discovered features are! This one in particular seems to have no actual benefit beyond just being cool, but the user experience factor gets boosted by small “easter egg” features such as this:

Press and hold,

And slide up!

And the message box shrinks back down.

That’s it! Small UX/UI bonuses like this really make me happy!
