  • Interactive Scroll Transition (iOS 17): Utilizes .scrollTransition with interactive behavior and horizontal axis to apply a dynamic scaling effect on the cards during scrolling.
  • Parallax Effect: Implements a parallax effect on card movement, adding depth and visual interest.
  • Search Bar Integration: Includes a search bar with a magnifying glass and filter icons for potential search functionality.
  • Airbnb-themed UI: Adopts an Airbnb-inspired user interface with a bold red color scheme for a visually appealing design.
