Density aims to take the pain out of being a developer or designer when it comes to calculating dimensions for screen sizes.
It used to be the case that it was all about the pixels but that changed with the advent of retina screens with designers & developers having to work out multiple sizes in different ways, for the dizzying array of screen sizes developers now have to cater for
As I always say the best apps are often the most simplist and this is exactly where the Density Pixel Calculator comes in. What you see is really what you are getting, even preferences up in the top menu bar is grayed out.
Something I’m very proud of is that this app has already improved the productivity of some Twitter and Google employees. – Pedro Vieira
One handy feature is the ability to export your calculations to a RTF file or float the program, keeping it above all windows all of the time. Nice touches to a program making it even handier.
You can file Density: A Pixel Calculator For Mac under unbelievably handy and whilst you could argue that you could setup a spreadsheet or use a calculator why would you when there’s an app like Pixel Density for $0.99
