Appcollector: Favourite apps by Designcollector

Posted by Arseny Vesnin on 22 06 2012 12:15 · in Mobile Applications (Appcollector), STAFF PICKS

Today I will speak for myself in Friday’s “Appcollector Favourites”. Here is a list of creative applications I use daily to keep Designcollector and myself in a good shape.

1. iFound

As a visual hunter I can’t spend a day without sticking for an hour on FFFFOUND imagery solaris. Their brand new iPhone app works fast and crisp with all that amount of data, and I like the way related images are organized so I can go deeper and deeper until I get obscene girls images on screen. App can glitch sometimes due to caching.

2. Google Currents (Google Медиа)

Earlier this year Google has an attempt to shake up the online blogs and magazines scene with Google Currents publishing tool and mobile application. The tool allows blogs owners to create branded mobile Google magazines fetching data from RSS, Picasa, Youtube likes and Google Plus all together. We could not make that works together but released Designcollector on Google Currents, feel free to subscribe. In overall this is a very strong application for news reading (bonus: optional offline sync!). Most of favourite blogs and media publish their Google Currents Magazines but you can easily subscribe to plain RSS channels you like.

3. Gabi

My latest finding, thanks to Mashable. Gabi is a new way to visualize and interact with the world’s largest social network. Yes it is a sort of smart visual interface for Facebook, working smoothly with popular/unpopular content from your newsfeed, friends and yourself. It is not the application to chat with your friends and shower likes on the walls, it is more about getting the most interest content

4. Reeder

When I am getting tired from Google Currents I switch to the ultimate Google Reader mobile interface – Reeder app. It is good, has a clean UI, easy flow and a lot of sharing options. The only thing I am worrying about is offline image caching, that works randomly on a huge list of channels like mine.


Svpply is a hand-selected collection of the world’s best products from all across the world. The application has awesome interface without notorious skeuomorphism and interacts easily with a fun. Follow us on SVPPLY

Bonus: Manifest

According to Manifest app with Russian roots, things divides to “Cool” and “Dumb”. Connect your friends, take a snaps with your camera and rate them together.
