The UX Recipe app is still on a steady, but ascending path. Of course things eventually had to calm down from all that launch buzz, but I'm glad to see that visits and downloads are still rolling each day. While tinkering the next updates (and the long-promised Android MVP) with help from Mihai and Tzury, I want to present you some stats and cool insights I discovered so far.
I've been a fan of Smashing Magazine since I've discovered them back in 2007. From that day until now I've kept a close eye on their progress and enjoyed every resource they made available. I even tried little by little to contribute to their mission: designed calendar wallpapers, contributed to the Smashing Community poster, expressed my opinions for the Smashing Usability Panel and many more. But the one thing I appreciate the most is the fact that the SM team knows how to give back to the community that supports them. Entering the stage is the Smashing Book - a collection of ideas, opinions and practices tailored to make us embrace design and remind us why we do the things we do. Smashing Book #4 was launched, I bought it and now... I'm going to review it.
