Instagram for Android Now Available

I’m sorry, but I cannot resist starting this article with “It’s finally here!“. Instagram, arguably the most popular photo app on iOS with over 30 million registered users and with users uploading over 5 million photos every day, has finally landed for Android devices.

Cocktail Flow — Picking Your Drink Was Never This Beautiful

Here’s another beautiful cocktail recipe app that has me thirsty and craving for some spirits. Back in August, we took a look at The Cocktail App — a stunning and beautifully designed iPhone app that had me go, “Holy mother of Arkham Asylum Batman, I’ve got to put this up on Beautiful Pixels. There are so many deliciously yummy pixels put together in this app, that it’s not even funny.” Today, I came across another app of the same kind...

Square Card Case

Imagine a world where you’d never have to carry a physical wallet — where all the payment modes you need were right in your smartphone.
