If you've never heard of Dribbble (yes, it is spelt with three b's) then you need to check it out now. As a place for designers to showcase their work and for customers to find great designers, it's the leading industry site.

Dribbblr is a free, simple to use and well-designed Dribbble client for your iPad that makes browsing Dribbble a breeze.

Preview feature

The app displays four designs per screen. Upcoming designs can be previewed by pressing and holding the bar at the bottom, and you can see the comments thread and further details by tapping an image.

You don't need to have an Dribbble account to use Dribbblr but if you give it a username, you can view latest shots by designers you follow. The app is free, but you can upgrade to a Pro version via in-app purchase that removes all the ads.
