We have a lot of visual art going on and a little bit of gaming and a huge game sale as well. So if you came here for anything other than fun, like to learn Catalan or for that one productivity app that's going to finally teach you how to GTD, well, you're outta luck. Let the games begin!
Designed to mimic the effect of a classic photo booth (albeit without the exorbitant fees), Boothsy looks the part, including turning out the photos in strips -- customizable up to four, a nice touch. Thanks to a simple interface and some cool built-in features, the iPad app helps you relive the memories of squashing into a cramped space with your mates to get some snapshots. Facial recognition is arguably the standout feature here, and with it enabled, the app won’t take the set number of pictures unless there’s a face actually in shot.
Tons of app sales are starting and wow has your App Store app updates been as crazy as ours? We can't pick up our iPhones or iPads without seeing that famiiar red badge letting us know there are yet more updates pushed down the pike. Here are a few of the latest discounts we've seen to give you something to play with on your new handset when you get it.
Before Adobe Photoshop Touch appeared on iOS, ArtStudio was considered the go-to image editing app, with the best selection of editing tools available on the iPad, including some decent artistic paint brushes. In its most recent revision, ArtStudio has undergone a radical interface overhaul, ultimately looking a lot like a desktop graphics tool, and making critical controls -- such as the extensive layer options, including blend modes and layer masks (the latter missing in PS Touch) -- more accessible. The result is a slick, smooth program that proves worthwhile to vets of Photoshop or any other full-featured image editor.
Well, it's a big gamer weekend for price drops we're seeing. So if you've got rain where you're at, it's a perfect weekend to stay indoors and give your thumbs a workout. If you're getting ready to go back to school, we've got a couple other apps for you too.
We write a lot about Instagram because it's pretty amazing. It's a fast and easy way to share great looking photos from our iPhones. We've written about how to order prints and a number of other things using your Instagram photos, but they aren't always cheap. And, worst of all, they aren't very instant. There's nothing worse than having to wait for all those photos to show up at your door. So, here's the easiest way to put the "insta" back into your Instagrams and print your own photos at home.
We're choosing to make 4" x 4" prints in this guide because they're easy to frame and because you can fit four prints to a regular sized page, getting you the most bang for your buck.
It's a shame that more app developers don't code with the iPad's big screen in mind, especially when the app in question revolves around photographs. Instagram has been around for nearly two years now and there's still no native iPad or universal form of the app. With all that screen real estate, it's a shame to have to run the iPhone version embiggened, trapped in portrait mode, just to see pictures of our friends' adorable offspring or recent meals.
Luckily, a bevy of third-party apps are available that offer a bit of a twist on the old iPhone photo sharing app. Here's a look at several such apps that are all grown up for the big screen.
Nearly lost among the excitement over a new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, Apple optimized all of its Mac apps for the amazing new screen. But one of them, Aperture, got a whole lot more than just Retina Display support this week.
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.
Adobe Systems is having a big week, shipping Creative Suite 6 on Monday and Creative Cloud expected on Friday, but in-between they’ve quietly slipped Photoshop Lightroom 4 into the Mac App Store, marking their fourth title to land on Apple’s virtual store shelves.
