Framer released an unexpected update yesterday, and it was the highlight of my day. True story.

First things first, rest in peace app switching, for real. This I believe was the the core of the update, Design & Code (prototype) in one interface. Already familiar with the code interface, I had to check out the new design interface first, afterall I’m a designer.
