If you are in the business of creating kickass apps for mobile devices, this new free WordPress theme is for you! Most apps cannot depend on the very little exposure they receive within the various app stores. Apps also require a solid web presence in order to be successful.

Online file storage sites like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft’s SkyDrive are beginning to change how average site owners manage their content. Instead of having all of their content on their own servers, website owners are beginning to see the value in having some of their content, especially images and video, housed remotely on special storage sites or CDNs (Content Delivery Networks). This makes for:
Lighter sites that load faster, due to much of the content being hosted in a separate location
Cheaper sites, due to the decreased space and bandwidth requirements.
Which One Should You Use?

Today we want to look at a new tool available for WordPress designers and plugin developers whose work requires custom admin icons. WordPress admin icons are important for branding your custom plugin in the dashboard. Web and UI designer Matthias Kretschmann has created a free template and code samples for designing your own admin icons.
Custom admin icons are needed in when creating new custom post types, plugin settings and theme options pages. At the very least you will need three icons:
two 16px icons for the admin menu, one non-colored and one colored icon for the hover state
