These are the things I've written that are tagged "apps"

Knock

Knock twice on your iPhone to unlock your Mac. $3.99 on the App Store, and a really nice site that commits one major sin: Hijacking the user’s scroll momentum to guide them through the sections. This is happening a lot these days. We did some demos of this at Occipital for the Structure Sensor website, […]

Panic Releases Status Board

Remember when we all lost our shit over Panic’s awesome in-house status board? Well they released it on the App Store today. $10. You can even create your own data sources by following this doc. I’m sure the docs will be available as a non-PDF soon enough.

Introducing Twitov

Twitov is a generative text bot that takes your Twitter history file and uses it to make new Tweets based on your own personality. It’s free, all you need is your Twitter history file. Twitov is an Extra Future 6-hour project that ballooned into a week-long one. Whoops. Previous ExFu 6-hour Projects include Kove (a […]

Aptus

Sounds like a good deal to me: “Aptus is a dedicated browser that lets you preview, edit and screenshot your responsive site at any size from mobile through to large desktop.” Just $2.99 of your Earth dollars.

Instapaper for Android

“Finally.” I use a fairly cheap Android phone, because I don’t want to give ATT or Verizon any of my money, and I hate cell phone contracts. Instapaper was one of the apps I use everyday that was really hampered by the lack of a native client. Looks like that’s fixed, now. The interesting thing […]

Coda 2 Released, 50% off Today Only

I’ve been using Coda 1 every day for 5 years to do my job. Coda 2 is great, already, and couldn’t be more worth the price ($49.99 today!) If you’re a fan of the alternative CSS syntax LESS, there’s already a Coda 2 syntax extension for you.

Coda 2

Panic finally announces version 2.0 of Coda. Available May 24th, 2012. I’ve been using Coda 1.x every day as my primary tool for web development since 2007. To say I’m excited about this is an understatement. As you might expect, the product website is gorgeous, innovative, and informative. Hint: Type the backslash key to make […]

PNGPress

PNGPress, my PNG image compressor for Mac OS X, is available on the Mac App Store worldwide. Good developers know that making images for the web is a constant battle between quality and file size. Great developers use PNGPress. Try it and see for yourself. Here are some promo codes: WHW94KHHE6A4 TNEMH4JKHP3M HXJEMTHHPLHW 3XFE7AWMYJMX 6ALNJWWWYJJ4

la petite url has a new home

la petite url, my custom short url plugin for WordPress, has a new homepage at http://lapetite.me. Version 2.6 is forthcoming with long-awaited support for sending short urls to the popular Twitter Tools plugin.

FDX Reader

A Final Draft file reader for iPad created by Screenwriter John August. This is one of those iOS apps that makes perfect sense for the platform. It is clever, nuanced, draws on a specific body of professional knowledge, and looks like a million bucks. It even has Dropbox integration. Now it just needs to read […]

PNGPress

PNGPress, my simple image optimization app for Mac OS X is now available on the App Store. I hope you like it. PNGPress will accept any number of PNG images dropped onto its dock icon.

Jawbone THOUGHTS

Thoughts is an iPhone application for sending audio messages to individuals or groups. It isn’t so much a replacement for voicemail or phone calls as a non-blocking way to talk to people without butting into whatever they’re already doing.

Acorn 2.5

Every update to Acorn, dubbed “The Image Editor for Humans” , has me spending less time in Photoshop.

Transmit 4

Panic releases the newest version of their FTP client, and it’s a doozy. The website is, as I’ve come to expect from Panic, completely awesome.

Rouse

Described by the creator of the project as: an attempt to create a new Mac OS X web browser that steals the best bits from OmniWeb for its user interface, adds some well-needed hooks to the interior to customize rendering and loading, and otherwise stays away from scope creep as far as possible. and I […]
