An Unhealthy Lust for Design

Movies Now. Buy movie tickets in lickalicious pixels.

[tweetmeme] Very few apps manage to deviate from user interface standards and still manage to look so good. Movies Now by Kodu features the most visibly gorgeous tab-bar, that pretty much defines this app. But they didn’t stop there. Everything from the controls, to the background, to the way the thumbnails are laid out is ultimate perfection. Their latest pixel goodness is in the form of a pop up that allows you to add a movie to your wishlist. What...

Artist Profile: Marcelo Marfil

[tweetmeme] The characteristic user interfaces in the Apple community start off with the icon. It shows the attention to detail a production has gone through, to make the product as comfortable for the end user as possible. The icon is the first thing the user see’s of an app, practically judging the app by what it represents. We’ve had our greats in the icon department on the Mac, but now with the app store’s boom, there’s a whole lot of...

Ballpark app: Pixel Perfect Estimates and Invoicing

[tweetmeme] If one day, I’m walking down a dark lonely alley and out of nowhere, a shady dude with a hoodie appears in front of me with a Mateba pointed at my head, asking me to disclose my favorite interface design company, it wouldn’t take me long before I blurt out, “MetaLab“.

It’s pretty much like a notebook on your screen really. You’re not bound by nitty gritty details like time or priority. As simple as the view may look, it’s...

Outside app – Perhaps even prettier than the real outside

[tweetmeme] I have absolutely no interest in knowing the weather conditions—add to that our weather department is bogus— but I can’t wait to get my hands on Outside. Created by Will Wu of Robocat Apps, Outside is a beautiful weather app, with delicious pixels cooked by the Michael Flarup of PixelResort.com. The ‘candy’ UI does away with standard controls, but you look at it and it feels right at home on the iPhone. What you can’t see in the screenshots,...

2Do – A beautiful execution of task lists on the iPhone

There may be thousands of apps on the App Store, but only one kind make it to my iPhone—the beautiful ones. A few turds do slip in a way, but for most part I appreciate sensible design along with some visual flair. That’s why I had to check out 2Do, a task list manager with a stupendously beautiful UI. As I later found out, it’s also got some serious features that earns it a good review. 2Do’s primary screen is...
