Ends tonight: last chance to pay whatever you want for a killer bundle of iOS design lessons and assets [deals]



So you want to design apps for iOS. Good choice! Of course getting started can be tough, but today’s your lucky day: right now the iOS Designer Bundle is on sale for whatever you want to pay, but only until Midnight. It includes a slew of of lessons and tools that’ll bring you up to ninja level in no time.

Maybe you’ve got web design chops, but want to migrate your work to mobile. Udemy’s 17 lecture courses on using PhoneGap will give you all the skills you need to adapt your design skills to power apps that run on any mobile device using iOS, Android, or Windows. Also on offer is Udemy’s more than 7-hour, step-by-step course on design principles and user interfaces. Made up of 30 lectures, it’s a great way to establish a strong foundation in the fundamentals of design that make for great apps.

Of course once you’ve built your app, you’ll need it to look good. Design graphics collections by Creative VIP and Freebo combine to offer hundreds of scalable PSD files, layouts, UI elements, vectors and icons that’ll populate your app with visuals to give it the professional polish it deserves. There’s also Wixel’s collection of illustrative assets for creating things like user interface flowcharts and concept illustrations, including dozens of layout templates, icons, wireframes, vectors, that are all fully editable and watermark-free. Ninjas don’t use watermarks.


You can pay anything you’re comfortable with for all that, but if you beat the top price that’s been paid so far you’re entered onto a leader board that makes you eligible for a fully upgraded version of the bundle. And by making it to the top 5 you get to be given entry to Cult of Mac’s next giveaway special. As if that weren’t enough, 10% of your contribution will go to support Creative Commons, who are doing righteous work to keep the flow of creative work on the internet healthy and fair. Doesn’t get much better than that, but you’ve only got three days to get in on it, so check this deal out as soon as you can and get your mobile design game up to snuff. After all, the next great app isn’t going to design itself.


Daily round-ups or a weekly refresher, straight from Cult of Mac to your inbox.
