Today, the trend for most professionals is to go freelance. This allows them to cherry-pick their projects and be in complete control over their work. Freelancers usually get paid by the hour, however, so logging the amount of time they spend on projects is a critical part of their lives. This is about as interesting and fun as it sounds, i.e., not at all. But the people over at Timely are here to help.
When you think about accounting in general ‘beautiful and easy design’ is not the first thing that comes to mind. I hail from a Commerce background, so I’ve spent my fair share knee deep in Tally 9.0, working with an interface that’s neither beautiful to look at nor easy to operate. This makes me genuinely excited to talk about Gaurilla — the company that wants to make Accountancy awesome again.
Realmac Software today released Ember for iOS, the companion app to their fantastic image management app on the Mac. Available as a Universal app for iPhone & iPad, Ember for iOS makes it super easy to access your Ember library on the go as it syncs all your data via iCloud. Your images, collections and tags are all available via the app, so it’s easy to locate that image you added from the Mac. The UI is clean, minimal and heavily inspired by iOS 7, yet Ember manages to maintain its own identity. The orange icons for each cell look great.
PDF Expert by Readdle has been one of the most popular PDF apps on the App Store. It has always been extremely powerful while still looking elegant. With version 5, the app has now been given an iOS 7 look and some great new features. Support for tags has been added and I love being able to drag and drop files from within the app in the new file manager. Review mode (similar to the one in Microsoft Word) is something unexpected and awesome. There’s loads to love in the new version of PDF Expert for iPad. It is sold as a separate app and you can get it on the App Store for $9.99. They even made a nice video showcasing the app. Readdle has been overhauling their apps recently and my only complaint so far lies in the icons.
FIFA app by FIFA is a gorgeous app that keeps you updated with everything Football (Soccer). The app is available for both iOS & Android, but we tested the iOS version on our devices. The app looks absolutely stunning on all iOS devices, especially the retina iPads, I cannot stress this enough. The blurs and animations used in the app are extremely fluid and the icons used within the app look amazing on iOS 7.
