Great-looking interface on Mover.io

The Mover add credit dialog is styled like a till receipt

While using Mover earlier this week—an online service for transferring files from one cloud storage host to another—I investigated how much it would cost to buy extra bandwidth (the first 10 GB is free).

The answer was US $1.00 per GB, after a minimum of 10 GB.

How did I know that? Check out their user interface. I love it! It’s been styled like a store till receipt: a perfect example of using a real-world example in an online environment to immediately communicate meaning.

I love their attention to detail too, right down to the crinkled paper effect in the top left corner. Good work Mover team!
