Are there any basic online tips for how to approach mobile app design (for print designers who have a formal training)? Resources for how to design for different screen sizes (there are so many of them), latest trends in UI/UX, and most helpful critique/help forums for beginners would be a great help.
I am researching mobile apps similar to Airbnb and Trip Advisor--essentially popular apps that allow you to (a) search and (b) book. Any resource that critiques or breaks down how these apps work is extremely important as well. [more inside]
I'm hunting for an app (ideally on iPad) that offers you a curated, regularly-updated feed of images of great design, for a daily dose of inspiration. The content can be drawn from pretty much any source: advertising, photography, web design, home decor, whatever. DesignScene used to do a pretty good job of this a few years back, but unfortunately got discontinued. Any ideas, guys?
I have a perfectly good new iPad that is sadly underutilized. I'd like to start sketching and drawing on it, but I have no idea where to start. Help! [more inside]
Looking for recommendations for beautiful, unique, high-quality iPad apps (and/or references to sites that share lists of such apps). [more inside]
I work with a lot of teams who do concept development stuff for the web and for general interactive design. I'm always having to find visual references for our discussions and our present system of sharing is clunky and requires us to print stuff out all the time so that we can talk about stuff we like or don't like. This is pretty crazily wasteful as well as the fact that trying to convince graphic designers to get enthusiastic about a reference when they can't help fixating on the icky presentation format is getting annoying. So, is there an easy and really nice looking app or programme for the Mac that allows you to save and illustrate pictures, web pages, articles and video in a browsable way? Ideally it would be something that was ipad compatible, if only because then it will have to be easily browsable in a visually attractive way. It would also be awesome if it allowed you to collaborate, so we could all contribute to a single place that would be awesome.
I want to create a simple but dynamic Bible-reading web app from the ground up. I have very little web design and development experience. Where do I begin? [more inside]
So, basically, I've designed a web application, and it looks okay. It's not yet good enough for a public release: I want to make it look world-class before unleashing it on the world. In order to do that, I would like to peruse web app after web app, looking at various colour styles, layout tricks, etc. that other people have used and gathering ideas for my own web app. I wonder if anyone knows of say, a large online repository of screen shots of 100s of web apps, that I could flip through?

Is there a gallery like cssmania.com for web applications? Not marketing websites, web application UIs similar to this list from Jakob Nielsen? [more inside]
