Web Excursions for April 30, 2013

[Tweet : ADN : nvALT]

Crouching Nouns, Hidden Verbs: my search for a great iPad writing tool
An iOS text editor review (ostensibly of UX Write) from someone who actually pounds enough screen keys to make some sound judgements.
Instantly grab a high-res icon for any iOS app using LaunchBar
A version of my iOS-icon-grabbing script for LaunchBar. Who’s making the Alfred version?
End WWDC
Some great points from Daniel Jalkut.
CSS Units of Measure: Going Beyond the Pixel
Making sense of all the CSS sizing options.
heelhook/chardin.js
“Simple overlay instructions for your apps.” Handy for some larger web app projects.
bevesce/TodoFlow
Good grief. This is na on major steroids. If you work with TaskPaper-formatted todo lists (or have any desire to), this is an amazing tool with CLI, GeekTool, Alfred and Sublime Text integration.
