developer apps

If Rdio and Weight Watchers can't even keep their apps updated, what good are subscriptions?

While Black Pixel usually operates quietly, behind the scenes, doing some of the best work you don't even realize you're using every day, they've also acquired and begun working on a small collection of their own apps. First out the gate is Kaleidoscope 2. Kaleidoscope, originally created by the now-Facebook owned Sofa, is a tool that lets artists, writers, designers, and developers compare versions of their work to spot subtle differences and merge best aspects to make sure they're producing the absolute best products possible.
