An Unhealthy Lust for Design

MEEDEOR — A beautiful stream of your digital photoshares

[Last Updated: 28 November, 2011] As we’ve come to realise, there’s not all digital images are the same. Sometimes you want to share a shot just for that particular moment, other times you want to ensure it’s forever saved for posterity. There’s so many services we use, simultaneously. Flickr, Facebook, ‘twitpic’ services, Cloud app, Posterous, and some even self-host their images. Each of these gives you a different user interface, and are meant for different purposes. You wouldn’t want a...

Nlug — The Particle Accelerating Digital Clock

If there’s two kinds of wasteful apps that we still want to have, it’s digital clocks, and particle accelerators. Okay perhaps I made that line up just so I could introduce this app, which is both those things. Much like Uzu for iPad, Nlug is a particle accelerator, in that digital particles dynamically react to touch and other inputs. But it’s also a fantastic clock. Every second, a digit is broken into pixel sized pieces, and pulled back to form...

iTunes X: User Interface Concept

Seems like everyone’s disappointed with the iTunes 10 user interface. It’s neither radically different to be appreciative of new concepts, nor does it maintain its previous aesthetics. Instead of rethinking the user interface to accomodate for the different services that iTunes provides, Apple has merely shoved them into nooks and crannies, completely detatched from each other. What I’m trying to say is, Ping could have been so much more. Scott Jensen (@ScottTheRocker) has been doing some thinking, and designing, which...

365psd — Great resource for budding designers

Whether the art of design comes from within or a skill acquired, it always helps to learn how the design greats create their stunning artwork. I hadn’t heard about 365psd until today, and I can’t understand why such an awesome resource slipped past me. 365psd is a project to give these designs a second chance. Jonno Riekwel felt it was time for a change. “Why not give these files a new life by giving them away, for free?” So he...

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...
