Here at BRINK, we specialize in mobile app design. And we know that a great app doesn’t just come falling out of a tree; designing an app people will use means an intuitive design, a touch of artfulness, and addictive features. So, with those in mind, here are some recently developed, or upgraded apps, that we thought deserved a little extra attention:
Kaleidoscope is a fashion inspiration app that keeps you updated on the latest street-style trends. Kaleidoscope couples high-quality fashion photography and links to purchase items similar to the ones you find in the app. And of course, like most good apps, it lets you share what you love in just a few taps, with Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
Stamped is a social app that lets you “stamp” your favorite things, and share them with the world. You can think of it as a Pinterest for real life, but with a local search function that lets you see nearby “stamps” made by both friends and strangers alike.
Paper is a natural fit for the iPad: a digital sketchbook done right. Optimized for the new retina display, Paper blends high-resolution graphics with a simple design that tries to mimic the natural workflow of a real sketchbook. Free to use, Paper also includes purchasable upgrades that expand its capabilities to include extra formats and brushes.
Camera Awesome takes the camera app to new heights. Tailored for a quick and easy experience, Camera Awesome has everything the iPhone photo-enthusiast might ever want, including grid-overlays, manual exposure and focus, hundreds of filters and presets (with purchase), 1-tap sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SmugMug, YouTube, Flickr, Photobucket, etc. Plus you have the option to “awesomize” photos with a slider that automatically changes color levels to make your photos look, well, awesome. Did I mention it’s Awesome?
Pintley - Pandora for Beer. Rate your beer, share your beer and get recommendations on beer! With the recent growth of the micro-brew industry, and the following astronomic rise in beer varieties that came with it - sometimes it helps to have an app to keep it all in check.
