Web Excursions are select bookmarks from my travels around the interwebs, because I'm always thinking about you while discovering other people's cool stuff. You mean that much to me. You can see all of my (public) bookmarks on Pinboard, and visit the bookmarks archive for curated lists across the last few years.
Web excursions brought to you in partnership with MindMeister, the best collaborative mind mapping software out there.
- Text Case on the App Store
- A cool $1, one-trick utility for iOS that takes selected or copied text and performs case transformations: title case, URL Encoded, uppercase, lowercase, capitalized, reversed, and “Mocking Spongebob” (random capitalization). Available through a share sheet in any editor or text field.
- Katharos Tones
- A $10, 60-sound collection of ringtones combining a selection of digital and acoustic sounds. If you’re tired of unnecessarily checking your phone every time the tri-tone goes off in a TV show, you might want to check these out. I’ve been using them for a couple of weeks now and can vouch that there are some great ringtone/alert replacements in here. (Admittedly, I still use some other ringtones for per-caller customization…)
- DevTube - The best developer videos in one place
- A curated collection of the best tech videos on the web.
- Easily create a beautiful digital portfolio/résumé. Mural gives you a way to display and categorize your work, Pinterest style, and tell a story with each piece. Handy.
- Do you like Futura but want something that looks a little less… 90 years old? This pay-what-you want font — named after Futura designer Paul Renner and created by Indestructible Type — is worth trying out for your next sans-serif design need. Check out their other fonts while you’re there, they’re doing some cool stuff.
