the invite only and exclusive photo bookmarking site has released an iphone app to tap into ones saved ffffound photostream. minimal and clean design, but, i still don't get why they are charging $2.99 (£0.00) for it?

more simple

a well designed (based on a 16x16 grid) but also challenging typographic game similar to tetris but with type specimens. precisely place a falling word in line with its missing letter. i have to say that its pretty fontastic!
