Our favorite and highest rated (rated at 90%) VPN vendor NordVPN has just released a version 4.0 for iOS and macOS devices (approximately a month after releasing a brand new app for Android TVs). There are no new features in this update, but it brings a whole new user experience. How does it look?
NordVPN app design was always good, but never had the cool effect like Hotspot Shield or TunnelBear VPNs. Apparently, the NordVPN team is aware of that and they released a complete redesign of their apps for iOS and macOS devices.
What’s New in the App UX
Besides the facelifted look it brings a few new UX touchpoints:
- iOS Swiping up to browse servers – If you swipe up on the main map you can get to one of the four different cards (servers by country, specialty servers, search, your favorites’ list)
- iOS Country details – If you tap on the country pin on the main map you will get a country detail tab with the full server list
- macOS Sidebar with the server list – All servers (e.g. countries) are now accessible through the sidebar on the left side of the app
- macOS Search field in the top bar – Search field is always visible and accessible through the top bar of the app
Unfortunately, the new update doesn’t come with any security improvements or new features. But it already offers a lot of them including Quick Connect or Kill Switch.
