Thanks for taking the time to check it out.
What Hone does is it lets developers plant values to objects into a project, say an app, you are working on and then allows designers change these with a Mac app.
Alarm is an iOS app that is created to showcase that. Download Alarm, and run it in the same wifi with Hone and you can see what is possible.
In case you join with Hone Beta, you can access full functionality and try it out with your own projects.
WOW. This is really cool! After playing with the Demo in Developer Mode, I'm super impressed. It's pretty incredible to be able to customize values (and colors) and watch the changes take place immediately.
Would be very cool if this were also available for regular consumers to re-theme apps (at least to a certain extent).
Signed up for the beta! Let me in!
Thanks, Daniel. We’ll get back to you shortly. :)
I might just be an idiot, but I don't get what either of these do. Can someone explain it to a simpleton?
Seconded. As both a developer and a designer, I'm still confused on what exactly hone does and why I should be interested.

Indeed. My reply above, with more detailed explanation, should have been to this thread, but I am not sure how to change that now.
