BirdLaunch — A Great Way to Break-Up on Twitter

Thu, 21 Mar 2013 20:01:58 +0000

On Twitter, just because you follow someone, it doesn’t mean they have to follow you—and that’s one of its best attributes. You can explore and follow new people, and it’s no big deal if it doesn’t work out. Don’t enjoy reading their tweets? You can unfollow them with ease. And while there are some apps [...]

Glimpse — A quicker way to get your web fix

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 23:30:23 +0000

The web is a wonderful place. We have instant access to more information than any other time in history. But sometimes it’s too much information. When all you want to do is grab a quick bit of info, like the weather or sports scores, it’s easy to get lost on sites that try to hook [...]

It Depends — A dependency management app

Fri, 08 Mar 2013 20:29:36 +0000

How often have you had a software deploy that broke something else you didn’t know depended on the system being upgraded? Or took a server down that you didn’t realize another system was using? Or had a production issue and realized that literally the only person who knew anything about that system was out on [...]

EFBE — The Easiest Form Builder Ever

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 19:39:27 +0000

Sometimes you need to collect information — fast. Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of options for doing just that, but none of them were quick or easy enough for us. So we made The Easiest Form Builder Ever, and it does what it says on the tin. Creating a Form Creating a form with [...]

Marksy — Your new markup sidekick

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 18:46:26 +0000

There are a lot of markup languages floating around out there. Wikipedia and a whole slew of other wikis use MediaWiki. Here at Arc90 we often use Jira for tracking issues, and they require ConfluenceWiki. Markdown is a favorite of many, but in the case of GitHub, they went and tweaked it to suit their [...]

Contemporaries — Putting history in context

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 18:47:06 +0000

Did you know that the Crusades took place around the same time the moai were constructed on Easter Island? Or that Homer wrote The Iliad and The Odyssey not long after the creation of the Phoenician alphabet? When studying and thinking about history, it’s easy to feel disconnected from events that occurred thousands of years ago. It’s also easy to disconnect [...]

JSON Lint Pro — Format and edit valid JSON with ease

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 19:14:32 +0000

If you’re a developer, it’s likely you’ve worked with JSON. And in this age of platforms and Open APIs, with data flying in every direction, formatting valid JSON is more important than ever. We’ve offered JSONLint, a tool that helps you do just that, for a while now. We thought we could make it more [...]

Must Read — Share and discover must-read articles

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 18:53:18 +0000

The realtime nature of social media has connected people to the world around them—and each other—like never before. But it never stops, and the truly great stuff people share often gets lost in the shuffle. Enter Must Read. Must Read slows things down and raises the bar for posting, making it easy to find awesome [...]

Team Colors — Your team’s colors in handy HEX codes

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 20:34:25 +0000

Any sports fan worth their salt knows their team’s iconography inside and out, whether we’re talking logos, jerseys, or team colors. But even the most diehard fans, who’ve decked everything they own in their team’s colors, probably don’t know one thing: their corresponding HEX codes. Most designers don’t either. But now, with Team Colors, they [...]

Hackathon 2012

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 16:33:02 +0000

A showcase of the nine projects from our December 2012 two-day hackathon.


Tue, 18 Sep 2012 14:00:56 +0000

Sass is awesome. At Arc90, our designers are all about making their CSS clean, manageable and fun. We’ve found the color functions for lightness, hue and saturation to be especially useful. But there’s a problem. Using those functions requires you to recompile and preview your work every time you want to tweak a color. And often, you [...]

Arc90: The Game

Thu, 23 Aug 2012 18:45:06 +0000

We had a fantastic group of summer interns this year. Our design intern, Robert Vinluan, was inspired to create a video game for one of his projects. Today we’re happy to release Arc90: The Game in the Lab. A little backstory: here at the Arc90 office in midtown Manhattan, we have an ongoing problem with [...]

Readlists takes a group of links — articles, recipes, course materials, anything on the web — and bundles them into an e-book that can be read later on a Kindle, iPad or iPhone. A collaboration between the Arc90 Lab and Readability, Readlists is a fast flexible service for creating an e-book from any content you [...]

git-sweep is a command-line tool that helps you clean up Git branches that have been merged into master. One of the best features of Git is cheap branches. There are existing branching models like GitHub Flow and Vincent Driessen’s git-flow that describe methods for using this feature. The problem Your master branch is typically where [...]

[UPDATE: Visit the Donahue site or see Donahue presentations.] Donahue is a web app co-designed and built by Arc90 and Behavior Design. The original idea for Donahue was born out of frustration with the state of (in)attention paid to presenters at conferences. As the project evolved, the tool shifted to one that attempts to break [...]
