Das Image and Designspire bring art to your Windows Phone [Video]
We like art, photography and images just like a lot of you. And sometimes we just want to find a photo on the internet. So we're pleased to present two great apps that we figure you'll want to know about:
Das Image - This app has been out for awhile already and it's garnered 4.5 stars out of nearly 500 reviews. There's a reason for that: the app is buttery smooth, has a gorgeous layout, allows you to save images and search to your heart's content. The app is very Bing-centered but also brings down Flickr, 500PX and other sites with just a tap. In addition it has predefined categories to help you get your browse-on.
The best part? This app is completely free and has zero ads. So why is it not on your phone already? Go get it here in the Marketplace.
Designspire - This app is also not new but it did just go to v2.0 with Mango features. More importantly, it was completely re-written giving this app a much needed fresh start. This app is great for graphic designers our there, those who love imagery, art or just like to look at cool stuff. The app is very Metro, based on the Start screen design and features an intuitive and unique layout.
The app pulls images and articles from some of the top sites out there including Adaptive Path, Core 77, Cool Hunting , Colour Lovers, Design Critique, Frog Design’s blog, Design Shack, Dexigner, Design Observer, FFFFound, Ideo, IXDA and more. All of those sources are also pinnable which is a nice touch. Designspire goes for a modest $1.29 with a free trial and we're more than pleased with it. You can pick it up here in the Marketplace.
Overall, two outstanding apps in the Marketplace that will sure to keep your eyes and senses busy. QR codes after the break...
