What would menus look like on iOS?

Here’s an amazing set of video demos from the developer of the Codea app about how Mac-style menus might look and behave on iOS. It’s a follow-up to another piece on the topic from yesterday:

I realised six months ago as I was using my Mac, using the menus, that I need these things — menus — in Codea. I was trying to solve a problem that has been solved for decades.

So I set out to make the best menus I could make for iOS.

The result looks good, feels good, and doesn’t feel alien on iOS. It’s an interesting data point when considering all the potential changes Apple could make to the Mac and the iPad in 2019.
