Dunk is a Dribbble browser app for the iPhone and iPod touch from Robocat. If you’ve never heard of Dribbble (with 3 Bs) before, it has nothing to do with Basketball, although the terminology is keenly derived from the sport. Dribbble an elite invite only club of highly skilled artists and web designers who post their latest projects online for commenting and voting on by other members. Dunk lets you browse all the beauty that is Dribbble on your iPhone with a user interface that could only be achieved by the folks at Robocat.
Dunk works in landscape mode only, and is divided into 5 tabs: Shots, Players, Tags, Me, and Settings as well. Shots lists Debuts, Everyone, and Following (once you enter your Dribbble username). Each have a number indicating new unread posts per group. In Shot view mode, there are 2 hidden hotspots on top and bottom of the screenshots. Tap the top area to see the name and author or the shot, the bottom to see full metadata, including the ability to read all the comments. The comments open up in a beautiful little newspaper style window with avatars/comments from fans of the shot. You swipe left or right to view previous/next shots. Tap the very top area to see the menu and jump back to the main area.
Players is where you keep a list of your favorite Dribbble users. You can view the player’s profile from here showing their mugshot, and vital stats like shots, likes, following, followers and draftees. This is also where you can filter out and see only that player’s shot stream.
Tags let you create keyword searches for your favorite shots to be filtered. I like doing a tag for iPhone and one for iPad. There are some really innovative things coming up in this space.
Me is your little space on the court. Entering your username is all you need to get your profile loaded into Dunk. Kind of a bummer that Dunk doesn’t let actually let you login to Dribbble and make changes. I doubt anyone would want to upload stuff from their iPhone into Dribbble, but that would be a nice potential feature. If the next revision adds these of features Robocat will have to rename the app to Slam Dunk.
Settings lets you change your profile and clear the cache. Overall, Dunk is a beautiful app for an equally beautiful service. If you are at all into graphic design or just love getting inspired, this is a must have app.
