BEAKER by Thix

“BEAKER turns your iPhone into a real beaker to experiment with hundreds of chemicals. You can hold it, shake it, heat it up, cap it, add in chemicals, pour out, and even pour between devices.”


Guerilla Filmmaker

“Guerrilla Filmmaker combines the power of a fully manual HD video recorder with the touch gesture interface of the iPhone to create a full featured camera app with quick and easy controls.”


CARROT Weather

“CARROT Weather is an eerily accurate weather app that delivers hilariously twisted forecasts. There are secret locations to unlock. A time machine. And also evil penguins.”


Adobe Color CC

“Sample colors around you to create themes you can use in Adobe desktop apps like Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.”


Multi Measures

“Multi Measures is a set of handy and elegant measuring tools kit. It turns your smart device into a swiss-army-knife that measures everything you will ever need.”
