An Unhealthy Lust for Design

Plex for iOS. Beautiful Icon.

“Are you really featuring this app on BP?”, asked a friend who was peeking as I was preparing the screenshots for this post. Plex, the beautiful media center application for the Mac, has just announced their iOS extender app that… Plex mobile integrates seamlessly with the desktop version. Stop watching a movie in your living room, and continue right where you left off on your iPhone or iPad. All of your ratings, viewed status and more is kept perfectly in...

Observer — Mouth watering stats, coming right up!

It all started with a Dribble shot. “What do you think of this?”, asked Preshit, though it obviously wasn’t a question. An instant nerdgasm followed. It was but a few pixels of the fantastic site statistics application, called Observer. We’ve been using Mint stats for our sites, which is a fairly pretty app by itself. But never before have I seen stats so gorgeous, that numbers are the last thing you’re looking at. The following might be a little hard...

The Box – Stunning Podcast Presentation

I’m used to seeing podcasts being presented either as a download link, or a crude playback controller on a wordpress/tumblr blog. Sometimes the design might be tastefully done, but it’s still basic stuff. So when I heard about The Box, a new podcast by designer Tim Van Damme, I knew what to expect. Or did I?

twtmore — Finally, you can ‘long tweet’ without shame!

How many times have you been reprimanded for sending out a tweet using Twitlonger? If I’m following you, probably every time you do so.

Westin Lohne and company created a brand new...

A Collection of Simply Amazing iPhone Homescreen Wallpapers

iOS 4 has been around for a while now, and the iPhone 4 makes iOS 4 look perfect to throw a wallpaper on. Still, wallpapers have been spread out far and wide, that a lot of people stick to the default wallpapers.

Rounded up are but a few stunning iPhone 4 backgrounds (and background packs) that...

Nibbble — This is how I browse dribbble on my iPad

I just saw it, but I already know this is it. Ever since the dribbble api opened up, we’ve heard of so many clients, it’s almost the new twitter client. Well here’s nibbble, an iPad web application based around the dribbble api, created by Nial Giacomelli (@nialgiacomelli). Nial is the same designer who created the “Showtime” web app for the iPhone some time back, so he’s obviously upgraded on this one. nibbble is so fluid, you’d be wondering why you...
