Simple Currency Converter

Currency 1.6 Adds A Calculator and New Themes; Goes Freemium

Currency Converters are dime a dozen, so it is very rare to come across a currency converter app that leaves a lasting impression on you. I’ve written about quite a few currency converter apps for iOS, but one that I’ve always come back to is aptly called ‘Currency — Simple Currency Converter‘.

Shotsgram 2.0 Arrives with a Visual Overhaul and a Bunch of New Features

Shotsgram is a Dribble app for iOS and Apple Watch that we wrote about back in 2015. It was intricately crafted and offered a lovely experience when browsing Dribble.

Things 3.1 — “Let’s Put a Smile back on that Face”

While all of us could, potentially, come up with a...

This redesign introduces a consistent design languages across all the platforms and also introduces a (much needed) refreshing experience to the product. Of course, just like all the previous redesigns, the changes introduced today aren’t going well with its user base. The biggest change today comes...

The Winners of Apple Design Awards 2017

In a surprising change of tradition, this year for WWDC 2017, Apple chose not to host a public ceremony for their annual Apple Design Awards. Instead, according to Rene Ritchie at iMore, Apple held a private event this year with sort of a meet-and-greet with Craig Federighi and other Apple executives. The ADAs are immensely coveted and a big deal, and having your name announced in front of a large audience and to run to the stage to claim your...
