After seeing that Adobe had integrated the behance network into some of its design applications I thought it would be cool to give my favourite design network @dribbble the same treatment.
I had the idea over the weekend and decided I was going to try and build this thing from scratch and ship it within 24hrs. I actually managed to do it in just over 16 hrs, so I just gave myself a high five :)
Let me introduce you to Bounce!
Bounce lets you watch the game while you design. You can log in, make comments, follow and like, all without leaving the design app your currently working in.
Bounce is totally free and my gift to the dribbble community. You can use it with Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks and In Design.
If @Dan Cederholm and the team see potential in the plugin it would be awesome to develop it further with their input.

Personally I think it will be very distracting to have access to Dribbble shots while working in photoshop.
I mean, Dribbble is addictive already and you're trying to make it always there while designing? I smell procrastination.. :)
But still, it's amazing you made it possible @Norm, and in 16h? Kudos!
Writing this comment from Bounce :) Great job @Norm
Thats freaking awesome !!
Going to make me feel like shit, as i'm designing away seeing better designs go past!
Also, space is of a premium within Photoshop, I can't be giving it away :P
@Samuel Couto @Ryan Murphy depends how you look at it. I made it so when I post something and want feedback from the community I can get it without leaving the design app. It's also handy for fast inspiration bursts.
@Norm WOW! Thats REDONCULOUS! Great job dude!
@Norm Properly loving this! what a cool idea! you the man! only question i have is, is there anyway to integrate gestures for back and forward like you would use to go back from a shot to the grid view?
@Jak Dempsey I wanted to add that, I just didn't have time as I only spent 1 day on it. Maybe I'll add that if I get a spare few hours at some point.
@Norm Super impressed with it all anyway mate! fantastic job for a day! This is now in my everyday life! Cant thank you enough! I will be telling lots of people about this!! id love for you to add the gesture support! if you do get a second i think it would really give it that extra bit of polish to an already fantastic idea!
Wow, only 1 day?! That's insane. Just installed it, looks great.
I know its probably not possible with their API but it would be awesome if you could upload the current document from Photoshop straight to Dribbble from the app.
@Jake Kwaschnefski yeah I plan to do that but ideally I'd need the @dribbble team to help me out.
Now we just need the Bohemian Coding team to add support for this kind of thing and i'll be set :D
Oh dear Norm,Are you kidding me? give me a reason to browsing dribbble in PS.
that plugin window are too small. i love your other works but i can't understand this...why? :o
i have a good idea,
how about "Twitter for Photoshop" or "Facebook for Photoshop" ?
i think that's so useful to let the boss feel you're always working with PS....Great!
The site is acting very odd in firefox. Scroll bars are having a heart attack.
Such a great idea–already using it!
Dude this is awesome! A great tool for searching for inspiration while you're in photoshop.
@Samuel Couto The world is full of distractions and I'd much rather the distraction come from a source that allows me to be inspired even further than I am by the talented folk on dribbble.
Looks like an amazing app! When I try to install it in Ps CS 5.1, it says it doesn't have a valid signature.
love the idea. reminds me of something i did a while back: http://s850.photobucket.com/user/RobotikDesigns/media/Bored.png.html?sort=3&o=53
Stoked to try this out
@Norm Great idea...! Keep Bouncing
