reproduction of essential graphic design and measurement references for anyone working in print design. measure lengths, gauge type height and leading, and determine line weights and bullet sizes. seems like it would be quite useful in a pinch if you did not have your kit with you on the go.
a part novelty part useful app to calculate how much money you have to throw down for a night out for sushi. inspired by the audacious sushi joint that uses colored plates and loud robotic sound effects while you dine. probably could work elsewhere too if they use the same colors.
famed architect and product design consultant Reed Kram and his company K/W have designed a simple isometric LCD world clock. looks like they got some inspiration from the Prada retail environment project they were working on recently. I dig the simplicity.
can you spot the difference between Arial and Helvetica? scores on speed and accuracy based on how well you can distinguish between the two faces. compete with your designy friends and prove you the sharpest typographical eye.
image-capture app using the slit-scan technique like a scanner. it generates unique effects over time. moving objects or scenes will produce amazing results. this is automated so you can set up your time intervals, line weights (aka slits) and form factor of image capture. just stunning results!
a unique take on simon says, in this your finger redraws animated sequences of lines on screen in same order direction as they appeared. not as easy as it sounds. sparse visuals, sophisticated sounds and smooth flow make it an addictive challenge.
illustrates the time in words, even cooler is that you can fully customize the type, color combo, language, etc. the screenshot doesn't do it justice!
a shopping list with a different approach. instead of specifying the amount of an item you want at one single occasion, you specify the container size of your items. use plus and minus buttons to multiply according to how many you need each time. this could be for anything, groceries, house party even an arduino project!
not only a nicely designed clock app but it has a twist, you can use any sound (clapping) or your voice to turn it off rather than having to grope for the iphone at some ungodly hour of the morning. also has a neat "call any other phone number when the alarm goes off" feature too!
