A directory of minimal and useful single-purpose apps.

I found some gems for macOS in this list of little apps that only do one thing, but they do it right. My favorite so far is Muzzle. If you regularly share your screen during videoconferences, download it now! You’ll thank me later.

Component library in Sketch

At Goldstar, we’ve been developing our own design system for the last few months and I can tell you it’s been a lot of fun. A design system is a collection of reusable UI components, guided by some rules, that can be assembled together in order to build new interfaces. We use a set of component libraries for Sketch in order to create, store and reuse this system, and I’ve been involved in creating the first one of these libraries. Note: Sketch calls its reusable componentes “Symbols”.

firefox billboard

I see this billboard on my way to work every morning and it makes me think that if there’s a new browser war it’s going to be about ethics, not technical specs or performance. The happy years of don’t be evil are far away and users stopped trusting Big Tech. This might be just the beginning.

The opening titles of season 2 of Mozart in the Jungle are animations of geometric shapes inspired in classical album covers from the 40s and 50s. These are just impressive.

UX Check

UX Check is a Chrome Extension made by Chris Gallello that helps you identify usability issues through a heuristic evaluation (Nielsen’s 10 heuristics). And why do you want a Chrome extension for this? Convenience. Just click on an element and you’ll get a screenshot and a callout where you can write your notes. Once you’re done, export it as a HTML or DOCX file.

So now I'm on Pinterest

·

As a digital designer I like to store screenshots of websites, apps and other user interfaces that I use later for inspiration. I’ve been doing this for a few years and I have changed my setup a few times.

I started using Evernote to keep track of everything. Evernote was quite flexible and I liked how I could use folders and tags, and the built-in OCR was nice too, but I stopped using it because the process was just too manual and slow. I had to take a screenshot with Paparazzi, rename the file, import it in Evernote and then add all that metadata… too much work.
