Desktoply Version 2.0 Is Here: Ogle All Of Your Workspaces In One Place
I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of ogling desktops and home screens. I like to keep my desktop clutter-free — and looking its best — because I work better knowing my devices not only function well, but also look pretty. Yes, pretty. I’ve been a big fan of both homescreen.me and Desktoply for quite a while. Unfortunately, I only recently got an account on homescreen.me as it seems it’s still request only (and I think this project is on the back burner now). Desktoply used to be solely for desktops (not for home screens) and has been around for a while, but the creator, Dean Perry, has been hard at work adding new features and revamping old ones. Enter: Desktoply version 2.0. The site has been completely redesigned. Previous users of the site will have to reset their password before logging in. This is due to the log in changes they have made to the site. You can, as always, choose between devices to showcase your desktops, but now you can even add your home screens from your iDevices. From MacBook Pros to iPads to Cinema Displays and iPhones; Desktoply has you covered. I am completely sold now that I can ogle all of my device designs on a single interface. And how nice of Desktoply to even include PCs as part of the device arsenal. Support for multiple desktops and home screens has also been added as well as Facebook and Twitter log in (or you can just sign up for an account). Not to mention, you can add descriptions of your workspace to share with other users and the description is Markdown supported. This definitely makes me happy. There are a few kinks that need to be worked out (namely, a bug with home screen wallpapers showing separately from their respective devices), but overall, version 2.0 is a huge step in the right direction. We can’t wait to see what else Desktoply comes up with and how it morphs into an even better interface for us workspace design addicts. If you haven’t used Desktoply yet — what are you waiting for? It’s free! Let us know what you think in the comments below. And don’t forget to link us to your own Desktoply page. Here’s mine. [gallery]
