Knock

05 November 2013

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, […]

10 April 2013

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.

Coda 2

21 May 2012

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 […]

23 April 2012

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
