Following up on his amazing app experience “Apple Store Time Machine,” Apple Retail aficionado Michael Steeber is back with a new app for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. With a beautiful UI, Facades makes it easy to “browse, discover, and bookmark a catalog of every current and former Apple Store.”
Michael launched the free Facades app today and shared how it came to be plus all the handy features and details in a blog post.
“This is Facades, my new app for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. With Facades, you can browse, discover, and bookmark a catalog of every current and former Apple Store.
Stores are grouped into convenient categories, so you can browse by location, design style, or store feature. I’ve included lists of moved, renamed, and closed stores. Store trends and statistics are illustrated with colorful charts. There’s even a list of unassigned store rollout numbers.”
When you bookmark something in the app, it’s synced to your other devices with iCloud. And Michael has also localized the app in Chinese too.
Facades is a totally free app for iOS and Mac, if you’d like to support Michael’s great work, he’s accepting donations via Venmo.
