Weekly Roundup

Aaron Brethorst, March 09, 2013

Hi everyone, and welcome to our weekly roundup! In case you missed it, on Friday, we published a great guest post on iOS animations from Jayson Lane, the author of Static, which was our first-ever app of the week. Jayson wrote about the ’why’s’ and the ’how’s’ of incorporating subtle animations into your iOS app. I highly recommend checking it out! Also, we’re always looking for more guest bloggers, so please let us know if you’re interested in having something published on our blog.

All the best,
Aaron
