Kickstarter for iPad – App Mockup


If you’re like me and you’re constantly checking Kickstarter for new iPad accessories etc, you are patiently waiting for Kickstarter to create a native iPad app.

I decided to take matters into my own hands and make a quick mockup of what a Kickstarter iPad app could look like. Inspired by the iOS 6 App Store, this could be a refreshing way to view and back Kickstarter projects.

RT, Facebook, Blog, whatever so Kickstarter can see this and help make it happen! 😉

All designs done by me, @SimpliApple


WWDC Banner Confirms iOS 6 Announcement!

Guess what? iOS 6 is just around the corner!

Banners in the Moscone Center are being out for WWDC this week and a few keen eyes have taken snaps of an iOS 6 banner.

The icon shows a water ripple background, which teases a new default iOS background.

iOS 6 is rumored to include a revamped Maps application, Facebook integration, new silver based UI, revamped stock apps, Siri for iPad, Mountain Lion features and a new multitasking system.

We will keep you posted on the day of WWDC! 😉


Stream Video from your Mac/Time Capsule to your iPad

Downloading videos is becoming more and more common these days, and of course the best device to watch these on is the iPad. Because the iPad is not the best device for downloading, most people download these videos on a computer. They then convert these files to mp4 and sync with iTunes. This can get a bit tedious for a single 20 minute episode of a TV Show.

I store my videos on a Time Capsule and wanted to stream the avi files I download to my iPad easily and quickly. Enter Video Stream.

Video Stream is an app that allows you to stream and live convert any video on your computer or Time Capsule to your iPad with no waiting times. Just download the Video Stream app and Server for your computer and add the folders you wish to access (add a Time Capsule or other external drive as you would any other folder). You can then open the app and navigate to the video you want to watch. Tap on it and it will begin to play instantly, no matter the format! You can also store these videos for offline viewing.

I have tried a lot of these apps (Air Video is the most popular), but I find that Video Stream has a very engaging interface and is updated regularly (retina display update was important for me).

Check it out and end your converting woes! ;)

Video Stream ($2.99 US)
