Effektive iPhone/iPad IOS4 Grid-Apps

We designed these free grid based home screen backgrounds and decided to call them Grid-Apps (Okay we know they are not Apps but the organise your Apps so were sticking with it, okay!) available¬†for iPhone and iPad to coincide with the IOS4 software upgrade which allows you to select and image as a home screen background. These grid inspired layouts act as an organised wireframe grid structure to keep your applications in neat and tidy order on your iPhone or iPad. With numbered grid rows and a ‘D’ for Dock you simply press hold and drag and drop your icons into the specific grid spots. Please note only works on devices running IOS4 and only on 3GS or iPhone 4. More colours and styles will be available soon. Click here for free download and installation instructions. iPad Grid-Apps will be available soon.


iPhone 3G[S] Sydney Launch




I went down to this YesOptus (mobile carrier) inflatable building down at Circular Quay last week to see a couple of talks from some of the key developers of applications for the iPhone and launching iPhone 3G[s]. Pretty interesting and the inflatable building itself was pretty unique, we even got a free muffin! I’ll put some more photos on my Flickr.
