New iPhone app: Bricasso
Another excellent LEGO-related app has turned up in the AppStore. Bricasso is similar to LEGO Digital Designer in that you can create virtual models from a wide range of parts and colours using just your finger.
What sets this apart from many similar apps both on the iPhone and other platforms is the user interface. A lot of thought has gone into it and it really is very intuitive and easy to use and you'll be building great looking models in no time at all.
This really is a very impressive piece of work and while there's a lot of functionality in this first version, future versions will undoubtably add to its feature set to make it even better. In fact the developer tells me there's an iPad version in the works which will really up the ante and make it a truly useful piece of software for virtual modelling, rather than the 'fun toy' that is it now.
It's available from the AppStore for the princely sum of $0.99 or 59p, however the developer has given me 15 promo codes that I can give out to the first 15 of you to contact me! Note that these are only good for the US iTunes so you'll need to be resident in the USA to use them. [Update: all codes have now gone]. All I ask in return is that when you've installed and played with it you leave a comment here to let us know what you think of it, and maybe also rate it in the AppStore.
