Highball is a new iPhone app from Studio Neat, prolific enjoyable guys and makers of cool issues starting from the Glif smartphone tripod mount, to the Cosmonaut stylus, to the Neat clear ice dice making set. The app is thematically in line with their most up-to-date product, together with the ice package and the Easy Syrup Package, offering a repository and sharing device for cocktail recipes so you possibly can make use of each your Neat bar accent hardware purchases to most impact.
The Highball app evokes each Passbook and an previous-faculty recipe rolodex, however has extra design allure than each. Recipes are organized by digital playing cards, which current both simply the drink identify or a small preview of the elements concerned relying on what number of you could have in your library. You’ll be able to share any recipe as a picture, full with elements and a paragraph of preparation directions, with playing cards formatted with an eye fixed on sharing.
Utilizing a static picture format means the recipes may be shared wherever you occur to need to place them, together with on Twitter and Fb, and the putting look of the playing cards themselves ought to entice individuals to truly verify them out. You possibly can then import these recipes again into Highball when you occur to see a card and have the app, utilizing the considerably sudden technique of importing shared photographs (the app reads a QR code included in every to make them editable within the app).

In case you are each a drink and a design snob, in different phrases, this app will make you very, very joyful.
Studio Neat is unabashedly utilizing the utterly free app as a promotional car to push its Ice and Easy Syrup kits, as a useful introductory slideshow tells you once you first launch the app. The app doesn’t get any pushier then that introductory notice, nevertheless, except for providing an unobtrusive method to purchase both the ice package or the syrup package, plus tip Neat with out buy, by way of Apple Pay from inside the app.
Dan Provost from Studio Neat tells me that the staff is contemplating how Highball may work on an Apple Watch, however they don’t have any concrete plans there simply but. He additionally says that whereas this app and lots of of their current merchandise give attention to drinks and mixology, the corporate continues to be devoted to doing all kinds of issues, and a few concepts unrelated to cocktails are already being bandied about between himself and Studio Neat co-conspirator Tom Gerhardt.
