Wondershare is a developer best known for releasing multiple versions of its Mac applications under different names, each focused on a specific task. Thankfully, the company shows more restraint on iOS, and judging from PowerCam, the quality of its mobile apps is much higher as well. The free PowerCam 2.0.1 for iPhone/iPod touch (also available in an “HD” iPad version) includes more than 60 Instagram-style effects like Vintage, Retro, and LomoCyan, which can be applied to existing Camera Roll files or new photos and videos as they’re being shot.

Fortunately, registered users were emailed their bookmarks for safekeeping before the service shutdown, but users were left scrambling to figure out another way to get their videos in a system to watch later.

Can anyone truly be a filmmaker? Francis Ford Coppola famously predicted such a future in the documentary Hearts of Darkness, and developer John Clem seems to agree, having created the CinePro app for this very purpose.

These days there’s no reason to confine your TV fix to the living room--or even to a TV. With your Mac you can catch full episodes of shows from broadcast and basic cable networks, usually a day after the original air date. Better yet, plenty of sites offer weird, wild, web-only material, with no restrictions except the boundaries of good taste--if that! Here are some of our favorite places to catch some online TV time.
