Shameless plug of our app, called Scrapd.
Think it's good to note that the screen on the white iPhone 6 isn't even centered properly...
As a fellow Dutch Designer, I'd like to ask...:
Would you return to The Netherlands? Why (not)?
How did you get hired by Instagram at the time? Can you tell us something about how you came in touch and the application/hiring process? I don't mean this in a bad way, but why would Instagram hire you? How did you make the difference?
How has the acquisition by Facebook influenced your work at Instagram?
I really like the content of Designer News and that's why I created a 'I feel lucky' kind of app.
No matter where you tap, you're going to get a great story. You want to know what's good and what's 'now'. Tap, awesome. Tap, awesome. Tap, awesome.
Minimalism to the max: no noise of post categories, votes, comments and titles on your home screen. All in a simple and slick iOS 8 proof design.

Currently in beta, but we plan to release this spring. And the app itself won't cost $50.
Edit: Scrapd probably won't fulfill all of your needs right now, but we plan on expanding and adding features over time. And as a bonus, here's a sneak peek: http://instagram.com/p/l4aRtXGoxl/
Yeah, same here. This is Apple starting their sales pitch for the iPhone 6.
I'm sorry, but I'm losing my sympathy for Realmac Software. They use the example of Rapidweaver outselling the Mac App Store version online. I remember the last time I tried using Rapidweaver, which was way before iWeb even existed. The tool hasn't changed that much over the years and the concept has been overtaken by way better concepts of simple web development. Why use such a tool as an example that 'online sales' work better? And I know, a 'new' version is on its way, but the people buying Rapidweaver online are probably the people stuck in that era, so they probably don't even have the Mac App Store on their computers.
Imho, Realmac software is sustaining their sales pretty well, especially with Clear. They were featured by Apple a couple of times and they even ripped me off another couple of bucks for a version of Clear that lived a short life. And if their trick is wearing off, when sales of Clear are going down, they'll publish a grand Mea Culpa, which gets the product in many peoples focus again. Did I get a refund? Nope.
And then Ember, the €45 screenshot organizing tool probably isn't selling well (due to its price presumably), so they'll just throw out a blog post to promote a 'new' way to purchase it, just to generate a couple more bucks due to free promotion as it'll be picked up by DN. And they'll throw in Rapidweaver to generate some attention to that product too.
Again, I've lost my sympathy for this company. Yes my post is a rant and I may have not formulated it in the best way, but come on Realmac, seriously.
Where the design community meets.
Designer News is a large, global community of people working or interested in design and technology.
This makes me think of a website I developed with a friend for a student festival in 2013: http://id.tudelft.nl/iof/2013/
Inspired by Time Machine ;-)
