This is how your favorite apps were when they came to iPhone

That's what your favorite apps were years ago, in their beginnings.

Now they may seem very rudimentary, even primitive. Its interface would now, visually, result in a catastrophe . But at that time, iOS users seemed like a real wonder.

But no matter how painful the applications are in the beginning, surely this fantastic look back to the past will provide our readers with an extraordinary glimpse of melancholy and longing. Oh ... what times those! True?

Time passes, and even the most popular applications move away from their original appearance . The changes, including the relatively new and extravagant Instagram icon , are always designed to improve the user experience of consumers.

The companies invest a lot of money in updating and improving the interface of their mobile applications, evolving little by little to a much more aesthetic, visual and / or futuristic plane. Interestingly, this evolution suggests that the vast majority of applications in the App Store tend to offer a much simpler, more concise and minimalist appearance.

But enough of a fight, let's go to what really interests us. Next, we'll show you how the user interface of the most popular and important applications of the iOS App Store looked . Maybe some of you did not see them like that, but I'm sure many will remember it with nostalgia!


The Instagram application has changed a lot since its origins in iOS. Especially after its acquisition by Facebook. Its user interface is now much more modern and minimalist. Both the upper bar and the lower bar were eliminated, and the black backgrounds became completely white.

It is worth noting the great controversy that unfolded when Instagram radically changed the style of its logo in 2016. From a retro icon that fascinated everyone, to a curious super colorful icon that did not convince anyone. At this point, we have become accustomed.

The icons of the applications ... because that's another one. Can someone explain to me how we have gone from this ...?

To this?

Fortunately, much better!


Facebook is another of the most popular iOS apps that has received the most changes. In fact, its developers even separated Facebook into two different apps: the social network and instant messaging. It is true that the app still has that distinctive blue tone , but there have been many elements, icons and menus that have been stylized since then over the years.


Twitter, like Instagram, completely renewed the design of the upper and lower bars. Before they were blue and black, respectively. Now they are completely white to give a much cleaner and minimalist appearance to the application. Yes, the application has incorporated a very elegant Night Mode. Finally, a curious fact. Did you know that the original Twitter logo was purchased for only $ 15? The designer must be pulling the hairs!

WhatsApp Messenger 

Interestingly, the WhatsApp Messenger application has not changed so much since its inception in iOS. In fact, it even retains that traditional green color of the sender's messages . Be that as it may, other details of its user interface have changed a lot, with much smaller and minimalist icons.


Did you know that YouTube was a native application in the first versions of iOS? That's right, the app was installed by default, although its icon was somewhat ... curious, to say the least. Its user interface has gone from having very dark menus to a much more visually aesthetic red and white tone . In addition, its structure has evolved in an incredible way, improving the intuitiveness and usability of the application. Probably much more than the other apps in this publication.

The original version of Snapchat had very few options, it did not have Bitmojis or filters. The company put aside the blue tones of the screen to offer much more fun and worked icons. Removing some small details, the truth is that the initial version we liked much more. But that's a matter of taste!

Which version of the applications did you like the most? Did you prefer Instagram before you bought Facebook? What improvements in the interface of these apps seem more beneficial?
