What Others Are Saying About DesignScene:

“It’s part photo browser and part RSS reader, but by virtue of being both those things it's something more than them, too: it’s the rare app that focuses on a single genre of content rather than a single model of presentation. Which is cool!”
— Gizmodo

“With great personality, DesignScene presents content in a fast and consumable format that’s perfect for getting the juices flowing.”
— MacStories

“The whole point of the app is to get design inspiration. And so they’ve gone out and found what they think are the best visual and literary places of inspiration on the web today and are piping their content into their app.”
— Shawn Blanc

“Well sh*t, now there's a legitimate reason to need an iPad. ...It was designed by a designer, for designers.”
— The Atlanta Egotist

“It’s no wonder that the app is more addictive than reading my own text-heavy Google Reader. ...It's the best way to enjoy your morning coffee I tell you!”
