At his funeral, the great German poet
Holderlin sums up his
achievements with undisguised reverence:
"He freed mankind from the hot lunch. We owe him so much."
Woody Allen, “History of sandwich”
The British are people of contrasts. With obvious pleasure they can play the slowest and most boring game in the world - cricket. Or instead of working drink tea with friends during two hours in the afternoon. Or quite legally drive on the opposite side of the road.
One would think who can possibly be more fuckabulous and less practical than an Englishman? In any case, it was an Englishman who invented a sandwich.
The application SandwichMe is just as simple and brilliant as a sandwich is. Even before to make one never were required any special skills and right now you can entrust this job even to your junior cat, so to speak. The app works similarly to the principle of “Photo Robot” software.
Good developers know that the most important thing is the icon. A popular scenario - the icon is just fucking awesome while the app itself is a piece of shit. The opposite scenario occurs much less frequently, but still can be found.
Learn: if the icon is shitty, the app is probably shitty as well.
What a good icon should be?
One Second Before Awakening From A Dream
In 1943, in Salvador Dali's mind a circus playbill with tigers collided with the studies of dreams by his beloved Freud. The painting depicts a dream a moment before awakening caused by the process of awakening itself. Something similar to waking up because your cat licks your face, right after seeing in your dream an epic story about saving a princess who kisses you at the end. And, all of a sudden, you see your cat. Don't tell me such thing has never happened to you.
And in April 2012, the guys from http://www.augmentedminds.com/ released WaveAlarm. It doesn’t differ from the standard alarm clock app, but it has one zest – you can turn it off by waving your hand above an iPhone.
