Genuis Icon For Breastfeeding iOS App "Nursing Clock" By Marco Arment
This icon design for Marco Arment's Nursing Clock iOS app is border line genius. I give 10/10 for sheer brilliance as well as simplistic execution. Came to my attention via a Tweet by John Siracusa (@siracusa).
Buy it for the icon alone: itunes.apple.com/us/app/nursing…

This would also be he same Marco who is the genius behind my favourite read it later app Instapaper.
Have to say I also saw a pair of hands grasping the nipple as well as the milk bottle teat, clock hands and of course breast. Am I missing anything?
Anyone know if Marco designed the icon himself?
Nursing App by Marco Arment
So be rude not to give a few details of the app itself. Details taken from the iTunes description.
A simple, easy-to-use breastfeeding timer.
- Keeps track of which breast was last used (indicated by the white diamond)
- Stopwatch displays the duration of the current feeding
- Shows the start time of the previous feeding
- Keeps the screen on so you can always glance at the time, hands-free
- Easy to read from a distance
- Keeps time even if you leave the app
With the simple three-button interface, you don't need to learn how to use a complex app or sift through piles of screens. It's just a simple timer designed for nursing mothers.
K Buy on iTunes for 69p Nursing Clock
