TRÜF Creative

TRÜF Creative is a Netdiver alumni. First featured for their studio mobile version.. and now fresh wave of new projects: identity, print, interactive, mobile – they are at the vanguard of delivering well designed material that fully support (enhance?) a client’s brand.

_______

What I particularly appreciate is how well they document each projects.

Showing a few highlights.

Circles game

Circles is a memory game for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and iPad mini and if you think it easy to be defeated – brace yourself for some serious memory pushups.

Super simple interface and brightly colored.

Brydge me up

In the past couple of months I have been experimenting w/ photo apps and am now considering buy an iPad to take photo editing further. Nevermindus shooting w/ an iPad – but syncing w/ my iPhone library – would enhance tenfold w/ the larger view port – to export back to workstation in a digital pictureshow project I’m currently working on.

The only down side? Hate the inscreen keyboard. So a couple of weeks ago found the NoteBookCase for iPad 2 (3 to be released mid-May – but only available in Japan). Was pretty excited by the product until I saw this one. Ooooh!

Brydge a full-sized aerospace-grade aluminum keyboard with optional stereo speakers, connects to your iPad using a patent-pending hinge. You can pre-order on Kickstarter.

3/ 2/ 4Gs

My <3 iPhone 3Gs crashed 2x times in 5 days. Diagnostic? Expiring after almost 4 yrs of hard / intense useage. Had no choice but to get 2 new 4Gs (one for JF / me). Currently in iTunes sync hell trying to get 2 new phones to be restored w/ apps and configs.. forget about the music library.. ditched. One of my last pix taken.

It’s Spring. Time for new..

Facegram / $1B

Facebook snaps up Instagram for $1B by AP

On the surface, that’s a huge sum for a tiny startup that has a handful of employees and no way to make money. But the lack of a business model rarely dampens excitement about hot tech upshots these days. As Facebook has shown, itself without ads or revenue in its early days, money goes where the users are.

Even Better Than iPhone 5: An iPhone With The 1986 Mac OS by Mark Wilson

iOS 86, by designer Anton Repponen, is a conceptual mashup of iOS and the Mac OS of yore. And against the odds of time and technology, the old interface still looks stunning on one of the world’s most advanced smartphones.
