Design always has been the prevailing factor when we decide which startup to review, share and possibly have you fall in love with. The importance of design has grown leaps, but daily we still are flabbergasted by the number of startups that don’t take importance of strong UI and UX to heart when submitting their startups for review.
Beyond startups there still remains numerous popular sites that haven’t taken a chance to redesign how their content is presented. Timesify is a solution that turns embarrassing sites such as TMZ and Buzzfeed and re-outputs the content into the style of The New York Times.
While design wasn’t the real reason the browser-applet was created, rather it was to disguise the content you read so those passing-by don’t judge what you might be reading. For instance you might be at work, but want to know the latest on Miley Cyrus, to prevent the constant razzing and the year-long unimpressed looks surely to be created, Timesify hides it all with a clever set of images and headers, while leaving the content in tact so you can indulge in your pop-culture fanboy lifestyle while still appearing “intellectual current”.
Timesify was winner of the Comedy Hack Day, and can be installed by simply dragging the bookmark to your bookmark bar. Then simply click the bookmarklet to turn any embarrassing page into the appearance of a New York Times website.
