UI Design: Folding App

The time for a new post on UI Design has come and here it is, a fine example of a folding app design. This is a fresh idea for a cool app, which I'd love to see first hand. Check it out! This UI piece is the idea of American designer Brett Withjack. It's a mockup only for his portfolio, I'd definitely use it to check on news. It looks pretty nice with a mint design for sure. For more of Brett's design ideas check out his portfolio at Behance. Also, let us know what do you think about his folding app idea. Cheers! ;)
