Aweditorium — The name says it all

You’ve probably heard of the sixty one by now. It’s a web application where you discover great music from new indie artists. The site’s audio engine however has been Flash driven, so it didn’t work on iOS. Well, they’ve now brought it to the iPad, in a beautiful app worthy of the name. The sixty one has always been about the artists, the entire window filled with imagery. Aweditorium maintains the look and feel throughout, with a gorgeous grid for...

A stunning implementation of word count on the iPad (and iPhone). If you don’t select any text, it’ll show you the word count of the entire document.

The result is you’re not looking at a website anymore, but a live catalog that’s super easy to navigate, very clear and uncluttered, while still retaining the depth of the parent website. You can...

Highly Visual is Highly Gorgeous

A brand new news reader on for the iPad, and it takes a whole new approach to the concept. Instead of lists and articles, all you see is a grid of images. The app does away with all standard UI, transforming itself into a flag greyscale wireframe that holds all your content — vibrant imagery. Using the app is totally different from seeing that screenshot above. It’s feels so futuristic. My only issue is the info view which haphazardly puts...

Victoria’s Secret: Beautiful on many levels

You’ve probably already downloaded the app — it’s #1 free app right now — and played around with it. The app doesn’t just feature gorgeous content, its presentation is quite stunning, too. Smooth transitions, beautiful animations, and a multi-layered background, but all that fades from vision as you focus on what’s most important. Truly an app that’s beautiful on all fronts.
