goldenRATIO - The tool for every designer and developer.

By Michael Göbel

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


goldenRATIO is a nifty little App providing an easy way to design websites, interfaces, layouts etc. according to the golden ratio - also know as the divine proportion.

This 'golden' ratio has been used by mankind for centuries. Its use may have started as early as with the Egyptians in the design of the pyramids - or at least they were the first passing on a measurable proof.

It also appears in the physical proportions of the human body, movements in the stock market and many other aspects of life, love and the universe…

goldenRATIO features a built-in calculator with visual feedback, favorites to store screen position and settings (so you don't have to rearrange goldenRATIO for every repeating task) and a 'Click-thru' mode which means you can use it as an overlay (for example in Photoshop) and still can work on the canvas…

A little hard to use at first

I would appreciate a tutorial video. It was a bit hard to understand how to get out of the Golden Ratio/Click Through mode. Figured it out eventually. It seems like you can resize using the De Devina Proportina screen but can’t quite figure it out yet. I would give five stars if there was a video tutorial. Need some way to understand the best ways to use this. Especially on iPhone 5 screens. Thanks!

Needs improvement :/

I agree, a tutorial video would be helpful. It could be a better tool if we knew how to make the best use of it. I think it would be more useful as a plugin for Illustrator or Photoshop, instead of jumping from the app to your working file.

Needs inprovment

Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty…..
The cats are eating good @ $2.99 for this….No flexability for sizing..

You can't even fit it on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper in a word processor evenly..
Needs a lot of improvment.

Your on the right track!
