According to The Verge, “Each Block is interactive, delivering live information from your text message history on the Messaging app, or appointments for the Calendar app. Machalani has also created a ‘swiping and consulting zone’ inside each Block that lets you swipe across horizontally to see more information, and tapping on an icon in the lower-left corner of each Block will take you directly into the app. It’s really designed to let iPhone and iPad users see the information contained within apps at a glance. ‘This would only be the first step to really push iOS forward, but a crucial one to really offer a better solution than opening and closing every single application,’ says Machalani.”
