Zootool — A Beautiful Bookmarking App

A few weeks ago, I was looking for a bookmarking service that I could start using full-time and seriously. All this while, I used to stuff my bookmarks into Safari itself — very rarely organizing them because whenever I needed them, Safari just auto-completed the URLs for me. But I wanted to get over this habit and started looking for a service that’d make me want to use it. There was something about Delicious that never made me use it....

Photovine is Another Beautiful Photo Sharing App

Here’s the newest kid on a block that’s already populated by a large number of photo-sharing apps for the iPhone. The iPhone makes a great pocket camera, so it’s not surprising that many big and small companies want to put out apps that take a bite out of it. Photovine is a gorgeous new app that functions very much like Piictu. In Photovine, when you post/upload a photo for the first time, it starts a “vine” of sorts where other...

Back in Black isn’t just Yet Another Sexy Budgeting App

Unlike most other notes’ apps on the App Store, Meernotes takes a very retro approach to notes. The app features some exceptionally well designed pixels all over. It features a very skeuomorphic UI, but...

The Cocktail App — That Perfect Sip of Beautiful Pixels

A few hours ago, when I received a link to The Cocktail App website, I believe my exact reaction was, “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. Based on the cocktails poster created by Konstantin Datz, The Cocktail App is a stunning iPhone app that brings you the world’s finest cocktails and their preparatory recipes,...
