a simple text processor that firmly believes in making writing a pleasure once again, vindicating the close relationship between writer and paper. The more intimate the relation, the smoother the flow of inspiration.
We loved the simplicity of its vertical menu made with rounded items overlapping and the nice simple icons that are displayed on mouse over.
PS: Though Ommwriter is currently in beta (for Mac users, at least), it’s really worth trying: writing on computer we’ll be a whole new experience for everyone.
Earthy, neutral colors and a gritty texture give these buttons a strong organic appeal. This hint is intensified by the zen-like environment they levitate in.

After a long vacation (?) break, we’re back to work with our thorough review of best inspirational components on the Web.
For the first post after having switched to English, we’d like to show you Broadersheet logo, which basically consists in a thick slab serif ”b” levitating over a heap of newspapers.
Broadersheet is a supposedly useful Iphone application that keeps you informed only with news that are relevant to you, avoiding that excessive information flood which somehow is related to RSS technology.
Miro is an open source video player and podcast client: the red sheep in background reinforces the meaning of the claim Miro is different.
Nameourababy è un servizio che permette di proporre e votare i nomi per bambini: il sistema di rating (in questo caso delle bambine) è ben fatto e anche il form per aggiungere nomi (in questo caso dei bambini) è pulito e chiaro.
Una referenza indispensabile per tutte le mumbloggers.
There’s a fun detail in Feedrinse price plan, a service that allows to filter unwanted Syndicate contents. Can you tell which?
By the way, packages’ names are great.
Skitch is a tool that allows you to edit and share your images very quickly, plus keeps a history of images created and makes their online publication quick and easy.
Checkmycolours is a tool that allows you to analyze the color contrast in web pages elements. Very useful for all web designers.
Jokeyphone is an application, still in Beta, with which you can see users video-recorded jokes, create channels, participate in contest and possibly upload your own jokes.
The flash menu is funnny: iconsand the slight mouse over animation are very enjoyable.
Mindmeister’ price plan: an application to create and share mind maps online:.
I liked the differentiation of icons depending on the type of offer.
MailChimp’s mascot, the online platform for managing and tracking email marketing, rages a bit everywhere.
Searchinsidevideo is a platform that allows you to make video contents searchable.
The icons illustrating product workflow are not only decorative, but truly explanatory.
Breadcrumbs trails in registrations or, generally speaking, in wizard like this, have the important function of communicating where the user is at and how many steps are missing to the task accomplishment.
When you invite someone to start a wizard, it’s always a good practice show how many steps are required for the enrollment, the strengths of your product /serivce or the benefits derived from an inscription.
The numbered list of Scrapblog is a good example of this; besides buttons have a pleasantly unconventional form.
Pagination on Image Spark, an interesting service that allows you to create not only galleries but also moodboard, is fairly unusual drawn as tabs.
Sometimes an editorial choice may defuse the “panic” caused by an error message.
The aesthetic result is certainly not the strong point of these icons that are very understandable and clear even if they’re only 10px wide.
