I am proud to announce that my second review for the Appstorm network has been published. For three days, I tested the mobile app Billings Touch in and out with all possible scenarios (and impossible) and thanks to the generous folks at Marketcircle — here’s a shout to Ryan Cash! — I was able to even test drive the features of the paid version of Billings Touch.
For those of you who don’t know: Billings allows you to track time and expenses for projects and even create and send out invoices to your clients. The UI is amazingly clean and simple so that even I, who doesn’t have a very intimate relationship with numbers, only needed a short time to get familiar with the app. Even though there are still some things that can be improved, Billings Touch is a very solid application and I am looking forward to use it on a regular basis.

Every designer faces a blank page or screen now or then & can’t come up with something spectacular. Instead of waiting for your muse to kick into gear, check out these sites that showcase a wide range of designs to get your creative juices flowing.
A bold statement in the title, I know. The password & software license manager as well as form filler though is one of the apps that no Mac user should lack. It not only helps to drastically improve security, it gives you peace of mind knowing that even though you might forget your password or misplace a software license, 1Password has the information stored away safely.
Taking something existing and transforming it into something new and better: it’s what every designer aspires to and the website of the fan-made podcast ‘Voices of Babylon’ provided me with that opportunity. I will take you through the re-design process and share with you the challenges we faced.
