  • Looks great!

    by PajamaAstronaut

    Everything is amazing, the only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the lack of iPhone 5 support.

  • Nice app

    by The-Same

    But "Save Shot To Camera Roll" not work properly. Save several shots and "Clear Image Cache" won't help. IOS 5.1.1

  • Best Dribbble Client

    by masonjar12

    Highly recommend. I have multiple dribbble clients and this is the only one I use!

  • Some issues.

    by zhangch

    Please add way to view shot in full screen when the device auto-rotate is locked. // Back, forward button is remove from browser view in this version, please bring them back, they are useful for browse the shot. Less crashes than previous version. Still a good app for browsing dribble. Update: @BackboardApp: The back/forward buttons weren't removed from the web browser - you can now swipe left and right on the navbar.

  • Great Dribbble client!

    by Read Frost

    Very minimalistic

  • really????

    by joe mommie

    your create an app for designers and developers, AND ITS NOT UNIVERSAL??? many of us have ipads, duh....

  • A fantastic Dribbble app!

    by slugoo

    Simplicity is a wonderful concept for a Dribbble browser/discovery app. Backboard's intuitive interface and navigation makes it the best Dribbble app at any price. Easily worth all 99 pennies the developer charges! Thank you, misecia!

  • Best Dribbble App

    by joshuapekera

    This is by far the best dribbble app I have used. Well worth 99 cents. The clean uncluttered UI is fantastic compared to other dribbble apps. It let's you just look at the shots which is the point anyway. Great sharing features. I have two requests for improvements. I'm not crazy about the pagination for a list view of shots. That feels awkward to me. Should be touch based some how or just continuos scrolling. Also add Pinterest to your sharing tools. Other than letting you like and comment, which is available in Dribbble's API, I have to say this is just about perfect. Nice Job!

  • Best Dribbble app

    by Mitchell2o9

    This is, by far, the simplest and most well-designed Dribbble app available for the iPhone. It's a must-buy for Dribbble users.

  • September is long past fellas

    by Ed1111117

    The app description says it will be updated in September... Well... It's November. Is this just a lost cause?

  • Useless

    by DuranArts

    I thought the point of an app was to at least have the basic functions the dribbble site has... You cannot like, follow, or comment. Visit the site instead and save your dollar.

  • Iphone 5

    Please update your program, i have iphone 5 :(
