I build and maintain Diligence, a SwiftUI about screen library for macOS and iOS. While working on the macOS implementation, I looked at a lot of about screens. There's real variety out there and some truly creative designs, so I thought I'd showcase a few here.
💡 This page includes light and dark mode screenshots. Change your system settings if you're curious to see what the apps look like in both modes.
Many of Apple's apps use the standard macOS about view, as seen here in Mail and Books, but even Apple are not without variety--Music, Xcode, Simulator, and even Finder all do something a little different.
Long-time Mac developers Panic (and creators of the charming Playdate) have no shortage of personality in their about screens.
The inclusion of the two-tone Panic logo really helps bring a consistency across the apps. Even Transmit--one of their oldest apps--makes room in a standard macOS about screen for this. (I'd love to see it in Playdate Simulator too.)
The Iconfactory's apps offer some pretty great and clean about screens, but I'd love to see a little more consistent identity across the apps. Twitterrific's about screen is perhaps one of my all time favourites--truly standout with a great balance of whimsy and function.
Tapbots have always had a beautiful, and consistent robot aesthetic. This manifests in their icons meaning that, with little else, their about screens feel incredibly uniform.
