T3 Music Player

Ever feel like your iPhone needs a little more Dieter Rams in its life? Give it some with the T3 Music Player ($1). Inspired by Rams' iconic Braun radio of the same name, it sports a clean white interface with a circle in the middle for controlling playback (sounds familiar)? Not content to simply ape the T3, the music browsing interface takes after Rams' 606 shelving, and lets you sort your playlists alphabetically or by rank.

  • Simple Bracket

    Filling out NCAA basketball tournament brackets is a yearly ritual around Uncrate HQ, but this year it looks like we might have a new tool for doing so. Simple Bracket ($1 and up) aims to rethink how brackets are handled on a mobile device, by giving you smart, scrollable lists of teams for each round in lieu of the traditional bracket, which requires far too much swiping and scrolling to be efficient. In addition, the app will offer an improved scoring system that rewards players for upset picks and a Twitter-based login system that makes it easy to create pools and invite friends. Currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.

  • Rise

    In case you haven't noticed, gestures are starting to replace buttons in simple apps. Rise ($2) is a perfect example. This replacement for Apple's serviceable built-in alarm replaces the bland aesthetic of the stock app with a clean, inviting interface that has you swipe up and down to set the alarm time, swipe right to turn it on, and swipe upwards to choose things like your wakeup sound or playlist. No, it doesn't really do anything else, but that's the point — only by stripping away unnecessary features can you make an app this good looking.
