Things 3: The Return of the Delightful To-Do App from Cultured Code

If my memory serves me correctly, Cultured Code’s Things was one of the first 3rd-party apps I’d spent serious money on. I first came across the app when Shawn Blanc — my favorite source of app recommendations back then — wrote this extensive review of Things on his blog. I was new to the whole “GTD” concept, but there was something very peculiar and attractive about how Things looked and worked. I was instantly hooked. And so were several others,...

Introducing App Icon Gallery

Over the last few months, we’ve been working on a new website — a sister site to Beautiful Pixels. Although the idea itself has been brewing in our heads for a few years now, it was only in late 2016 that we got down to working on it. And today, we’re happy to introduce the newest member of the iXyr Media network — App Icon Gallery. As you’ve probably figured out by now looking at the cool domain name, https://appicon.gallery...

Spendee — Frictionless Expense Tracking

It’s raining financial apps here on Beautiful Pixels! We recently covered the impressively comprehensive Finances 2, which makes your personal bookkeeping remarkably easy.

Well, worry no more, dear readers – Spendee, an excellent expense tracking app, has you covered. As Preshit already stated in his review, Spendee’s USP...

tlkn — The Super Simple VOIP App for iOS and Android

I have been writing about beautifully designed apps for just over eight years now. Although I started off writing about Mac apps at Smoking Apples, it was the launch of iPhone and the introduction of its App Store that essentially changed my life and brought me to where I am today — writing about beautiful pixels on Beautiful Pixels. Since I’m based in Mumbai, India, I have always been curious to find out about apps that are built (in part...

Gyroscope

Gyroscope — Your Life, Beautifully Digitized

With my recent move across continents, my life has become a bit, shall we say, ‘sedentary’. Okay, very sedentary. In Delhi, I used to get at least 15,000 steps in on a daily basis, I was at work for at least 8.5 hours a day, and ate properly. It wasn’t a glamorous lifestyle, but it was certainly a healthy one. These days, one day feels like any other, and if I were to be brutally honest with myself, my productivity...
