Since iOS 10 launched two weeks ago, Iconfactory Sticker packs have been some of the most popular and well received on the App Store. Now we’re giving you even more reasons to download and share.
Select Iconfactory Sticker packs now include iPhone wallpapers! Tap the pack’s title art and then select “Save Wallpaper…” to enjoy Sticker related goodness right on your lock screen. The following packs have been updated:
In addition to wallpapers, Mahalo, Pixel World, and Stickypoo have been expanded with all-new Stickers for you to enjoy. The Pixel World update contains over twenty all-new retro graphics including lots of new food items, retro technology (mini pocket computer anyone?), space stuff and clothing.
Speaking of clothing, thanks to the fine folks at Cotton Bureau, one of our favorite packs has made the leap from Sticker to screen printed goodness. “When s#!t hits the fan, only Deadpoo can take care of business.” The T-shirts and hoodies come in a variety of colors and fabrics, and the sale only lasts a few days so don’t sit around, get moving and order Deadpoo today!
Finally, October is coming and with it our favorite holiday – Halloween! Stay tuned for the spookiest Stickers you’ll ever find on the App Store. We think you’ll enjoy sending spine-chilling treats in the coming weeks. Boo!
We’ll admit it, we’re addicted to the new mobile game which seems to have the entire world caught in its tantalizing glow – Pokémon GO. We’ve been waiting patiently for Nintendo to get into the App Store for years hoping that when they did, they’d make a splash – what we got was a tsunami!
Now, thanks to a new mobile wallpaper from Ged, you can ride that wave all the way to your local Poke Stop and show off your lock screen to all those new friends you’ve made out in the real world.
Pokéwall is available for the iPhone 5, 6 and 6 Plus as well as the iPad. Head on over to gedblog.com to catch them all (yeah, yeah we know!). Have fun and stay safe!
There’s no denying that emoji are all the rage these days. That’s why we were excited when the producers behind Food Network’s hit reality baking competition, Cake Wars, invited us to fly to LA to help judge a special emoji-themed episode which airs nationally in the United States next week.
It’s the most expressive episode of Cake Wars ever, as four talented cake artists compete to take their cake creation to a party celebrating everyone’s favorite little icons, Emoji. Who will earn a smiley-face, and who will earn a frowny-face? Judges Ron Ben-Israel and Waylynn Lucas, along with guest judge Gedeon Maheux, co-founder of Iconfactory, will decide which baker will take home $10,000.
Ged had the time of his life participating in Cake Wars and we can’t wait to see how the competition heats up and turns out. Be sure to set your DVR’s for Cake Wars’ emoji episode premiering Monday, July 11th at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network!
The folks over at The Apple Google interviewed me about BitCam, how the app came about and what went into bringing it to the App Store. There’s some fun insights in the discussion that are worth checking out like the specific challenges we faced when developing the retro camera for your “mini pocket computer”:
One challenge was the nature of today’s hardware with retina displays. Pixels are so small these days that they can’t be seen by the naked eye and so to make an app like BitCam where everything was pixellated and chunky took some planning and additional time. Also, today’s hardware is so fast that animation transitions can be nearly instantaneous, but obviously this wasn’t the case back in the day so we intentionally built in “slowness” into some portions of the app like the Super-Res view. When you pan your camera around, the display doesn’t update at 60fps, it does so in a “chunky” manner to help convey what it might have been like to have such a pocket camera back then.
BitCam has been receiving lots of great reviews from users and we couldn’t be happier with its reception. You can check out the entire interview over at The Apple Google, learn more about the app over on the BitCam home page or download it for free from the App Store.
