Show some personality in your apps

A great way to be friendly to your customers is to project some personality in your apps (and hopefully it reflects your company’s true personality).  Google Doodles are pretty popular and it is a pretty good proof that you can show off stuff, even though there isn’t much in your “home page”.

I found a couple of nice examples this week that I thought I would share.

The first is from MailChimp. On May 4th, their login page had been updated to reflect “Star wars day”, aka, May the 4th be with you.

The other example I found was for the release notes for the Yelp iPhone App (And yes, you can judge me by the fact that I read release notes of the apps I use)

Both are nice examples that bring a smile to your customer’s face when they come across them. Well done. How do you make your apps have a personality?
