Simply genius: Portland’s Cohdoo offers erasable, reusable iPhone sketch pads that make wireframing more tactile

Today, so much of our work is done in a nebulous, ethereal, and intangible realm. We send electrons scurrying and bandy bytes about. Tap at the keyboard to create art. And press touch screens that provide only rudimentary semblances of real life interaction.

But so much of the creative process is enhanced by actually working with your hands. So what if you could create apps and sites with something physical? That’s the idea behind Cohdoo. Read More

Real time Web analytics service Clicky updates interface… and gets an earful

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: Portland has a whole ton of Web analytics talent here in town. Both on the consulting side of the desk and the development side.

Sweet! UI Candy for your application

UI Candy

More sticky sweet goodness from Portland-based Pixelmatrix Design—also known as local designer Josh Pyles—whose design chops have been highlighted on applications like Tweetpeek and Commuterfeed, to name a few. This time Pyles is offering you the opportunity to purchase a set of his glyphs for your application or user-interface development, through UI Candy.

The Glyph Collection is an essential tool in any Mac developer, or UI designer’s toolbox. With over 50 essential glyphs, this collection offers a great solution for any budget-conscious developer. These glyphs are fully resolution independent (vector), which means you can scale them to any size with no loss of quality. The glyph collection gives you the tools you need to make your app truly shine, for roughly the cost of a tank of gas.

For a mere $40, you could save yourself a ton of work. And pretty up your apps to boot. I’ve already bought them. No idea what I’m going to do with them. But, in my opinion, good work like this deserves support.

For more information or to purchase your set, visit UI Candy.
