SEE WHAT’S COOKING
The lab is the space where we build tools to help our community. It’s where we have the freedom to be brilliant.
TRYOUTS
A new way to say “Here’s the new release!”
Tryouts was our pet project for a while. We wanted developers to have a lightweight, simple distribution platform for iOS & Android beta releases. None of what’s out there made the cut for us, so we made our own. Enjoy!
SCRIBE
Mac-to-iOS copy/paste tool. Because who doesn’t need that?
Scribe started out as a weekend project, and turned out to take weeks of designing for perfect simplicity. An idea born out of the release of the BLE technology and continuous connection, Scribe connects your mac to your iOS device, then allows you to send copied text, images, or files to your iOS device with a keyboard shortcut from your Mac. Because you don’t want to type that phone number or open iTunes to put that photo in your phone, right?
PRISM
Your web images. Resized. On the cloud. Keeping your servers clean. Yes.
Another project born out of our own need. Storing images on Amazon S3 and resizing them was really draining on our app servers and affecting performance.

We designed Prism to take the weight off our servers, resizing images asynchronously and serving them up as they come. Check it out and let us know how you like it!
OPEN SOURCE
OPEN SOURCE
We hate re-inventing the wheel, so when we can't find an existing library or utility to solve common problems, we extract a solution ourselves and release it as an open source software project.
