As we prepared to launch DesignScene 1.0 in late 2010, the internet was awash in stories about apps getting into legal trouble for reformatting articles from prominent publications. Wired asked, “Is Flipboard Legal?”, while All Things D reported, “Pulse iPad App Gets Steve Jobs’s Praise in Morning…Then Booted From App Store Hours Later After NYT Complains.” Since providing design-related...
Introducing DesignScene 2.0
Since the launch of our app two years ago, DesignScene has been a great learning experience for us and a labor of love. We’ve been diligently working in the background, and today proudly announce the release of version 2.0. So what’s new? Collections! We knew from the beginning that, when designers found inspiring images in DesignScene, they would want to save them for future reference....

We have fixed this bug and submitted 1.4.2 to the App Store; hopefully it...

Many sites around the web today are protesting against these two bills because of the grave potential for unintended consequences. The bills—lobbied by Hollywood special interests—are meant to curtail piracy of entertainment content such as movies, TV...
DesignScene: Now with Instapaper Love
One of the most requested features we’ve had since launching DesignScene has been Instapaper support. Instapaper, for those of you among the uninitiated (lucky you!), is a terrific service for saving web pages to read later. Sure there are other bookmarking services, but Instapaper then lets you read the page in a readability-style interface in native iPad and iPhone apps, so you can just focus on...

To everyone who has purchased the app already and have supported us, we say thank you! We are currently working on some bug fixes that we hope to release soon. We are also beginning work on a...
