Backlinks are a huge part of my workflow in other apps, but haven’t clicked with me in Kinopio. I don’t know why, but my guess is because they feel hidden away at the bottom in the button.
I don’t really have a great answer to how I’d like it handled…
My first thought is just moving “Links” to the top right corner, kinda like the image below.
However, I think the biggest thing for me would be having a way for the Links to be “On”. So if I click the Links button the list shows and stays while I interact with the Space and even if I move to another space (two ways to handle this: either “On” reflects across all spaces, or “On” is the state for just that space when I return). I’d have to click “Links” again to close the box.
This might not be the expected or desired experience for most people and maybe hard to implement, which I get.
The reasoning behind this, for me, is I don’t use backlinks so much as in “I need to return to a space that linked here,” but in the sense that they remind me what has linked to the space and thus prompt me to return to a space that linked here. With that being said, reminders are useless if I have to remember to click a button.
Edit: the top right positioning would also be better for having the “Links” stay “On” because it wouldn’t block any other buttons and would be at the edge of the screen, off to the side.
