If you don’t regularly visit our Appstorm sites (and why not?!), you may have missed a great post featuring some awesome marketplace stats resources. Joshua Johnson recently ran a post on iPhone.Appstorm listing 7 iPhone Apps to Check Your Envato Marketplace Stats.

Home Office Setup

Are you a minimalist? Jesper Andersson is. Either that or he had a massive clean up before these photos were taken. I love the wooden desk, the matching metal, the missing mess, and that ever-popular Logitech MX mouse.

Meet the Staff: Sean Hodge

Every week we’ll introduce you to an Envato staff member or team. This week we meet Sean Hodge, editor of Vectortuts+.

What is it like working for Envato, and what are some of the jobs you’ve had with us?

Working for Envato is awesome. There is loads of flexibility in my job and they are a company that really appreciates their employees, and are great to work for. It’s an interesting story to tell about how I was hired at Envato. I started when I was living in Venezuela where my wife is from. I was working as a freelancer and struggling to make it in a foreign country, and I slowly built up a working relationship with Collis, which grew into a full time position. Not the most usual of hiring scenarios, but more common than you’d imagine here at Envato.

It’s amazing to see how much the company has grown in the few years I’ve worked here. We’ve gone from something that felt like a startup, to a company that is emerging as a respected and trusted brand. The internal improvements we’ve made have brought loads of security and stability to working here, which is really key for someone like me that has a family to support.

It’s also awesome that we met up in Chicago recently, so I could actually hang out with the people I work with (yes that’s me dancing at the end of the video there). I found out that everyone is in fact real and not well-coded robot avatars. We have a fun corporate culture and many of us chat quite a bit on Yammer, which is our digital watercooler (it’s similar to Twitter, but for companies).

You can read more about my past role as Editor of Psdtuts+ in an interview here. I also Art Directed and Edited Creative Sessions, which was much like running a magazine on the web. That was the coolest and most challenging project I’ve done here. We’ll be bringing that site back with a new force in 2011 with more of our Tuts+ editors involved in the project.

Freebie Friday: My Favorite iPad Freebies  

by posted in Free Files
Nov 26
2010

I’ve had an iPad for a couple of months now. After a few months of thinking it wasn’t my sort of toy, experiments with my wife’s pad slowly changed my mind – especially when I think of it of being an ebook reader on steroids.

Since getting my iPad, my reading has been revitalized, but I’ve found a bunch of other uses for the device. I use it to play games and read books with my two-year-old son. I surf the web (though I still prefer a laptop for that), and explore reference apps. I play the odd game while watching TV – I’m definitely not a gamer. The little machine has found a niche in my life, and I have quite a few apps to thank for that.

So here are my favorite free iPad apps by category:
