Every Free App Friday we bring you a nuanced look at some of the best and brightest free content available in the App Store. This week, however, we're going to take a look at some smaller apps you might have missed over the past few months. While these offerings may be bite-sized, we still think they're worth sinking your teeth into.
What's a holiday season without some great deals? While some of you may be gearing up to face the insane crowds of Black Friday -- seriously, why? -- we're sure to see some awesome sales online on Cyber Monday. But in the meantime, app developer MacPhun is rewarding loyal customers with a buy-two-get-one deal that seems pretty great.
If there’s one thing photographers like even more than taking pictures, it’s showing them off. Most slideshow software, however, is limited to a handful of slick templates and not much in the way of customization. Enter Boinx Software, whose FotoMagico has twice received the runner-up nod for an Apple Design Award from the folks in Cupertino. After two years in development, FotoMagico 4 is an impressive overhaul that opens up a wide range of creative possibilities for amateur and pro shutterbugs alike -- and it’s cheaper than ever, at least for new customers.
Walking around with an iOS device full of your favorite memories is pretty awesome, but sometimes you want to actually get them onto paper in the classiest way you can -- and Mosaic is here to make that a snap.
A couple days ago, we told you all about Facebook's rather weak photo-sharing app, Camera. But what if you're looking for a decidedly more local solution to share your pics? Scalado, a Swedish imaging company with its technology already available in over half-a-billion phone cameras, has just released it's first iOS app, PhotoBeamer. While you'll find no bells and whistles, it is quite possibly the easiest way to mirror image from your iOS device to a larger screen.
CameraBag 2 is an app that enables you to add retro-style filters to digital photographs. But while many similar apps are quite simple and limited, CameraBag 2 offers a huge number of options, which can be mixed and matched with relative ease. We say "relative" because the interface is rather quirky and not particularly Mac-like. But not to worry – once you’ve worked through this walkthrough, you’ll be adding soul and warmth to your digital snaps with ease.
Photographers have never had it so good. There’s no fumbling around installing new film, no saving a few shots on the roll “just in case,” and no disappointment when you get your prints back and your photos didn’t turn out like you expected. Shooting digitally gives you convenience, previews, and almost limitless shots--but it doesn’t give you warmth and character.
