Just Me Screen 1

Mobile messaging service Just.me has released a new update (version 1.2) to their iOS application that brings the wonderful world of selfies and Instagram-like filters to the fingertips of its users.

The move comes as the world of social networking continues to expand at a rate potentially faster than that of the universe itself, and people simply cannot just get enough of uploading pictures of themselves for friends and strangers to see. Read more…

SnappyCam Lets iPhone Users Capture 20FPS at Full Resolution

SnappyCam 3 Screen 1

Take a look at that stock camera app on your iPhone. Does a fair job, doesn’t it? Then SnappyCam Pro 3.0 lands on it and makes you realize how truly slow the stock app takes photos. For your reference, it’s about 3-to-6 images per second at full resolution (assuming you’re using an iPhone 5).

SnappyCam, on the other hand, is able to take 20 full-resolution images per second on the iPhone 5. You read that right, a whopping 20 frames per second. It’s all thanks to John Papandriopoulos (who has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering) and his frustration with what he thought to be “inadequate” camera applications (we’re looking at you, stock camera app).

Viewfinder iOS App 1

Chances are that over time you’ve accumulated a good amount of photos on that iPhone of yours, and that makes it rather difficult to find that image from that one time your auntie fell in the swimming pool after one too many cocktails.

Using the metadata attached to each of those images, though, a relatively new app called Viewfinder aims to making organizing, finding and sharing your images, well, easier.

Ziphius: The Aquatic Drone That Captures Photos While Speeding Across the Water

ziphius

There’s been a lot of talk about UAVs — as in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (aka. Drones) — lately, but what about Unmanned Acquatic Vehicles? When it comes to remote-controlled water drones that you can use to photograph underwater life, there’s far less choice in the affordable/DIY range.

The new aquatic drone Ziphius is here to change that, as it makes its way to market sporting the title of world’s first app-controlled aquatic drone. Read more…

External Flash: An iOS App that Lets You Fire Up to 16 iPhone Flashes Together

externalflash1

The flash built into your iOS device isn’t anything to write home about. If you want something more capable, the general approach is to attach something more powerful, like a Kick Light or Manfrotto’s KLYP flash. But there is another way to do it.

What if you could slave other phone’s flashes? Something like it turned up in an Apple patent a while back, but a developer beat Apple to the punch by designing a camera app that does just that. Read more…

iOS 7 Lets Developers Detect Blinking and Smiling in Photos

ios7

When a beta version of Apple’s iOS software is released, you can bet developers are sifting through the code like mad to see if any new features have been added to the mobile operating system.

It would appear as if hidden in the code for iOS 7 beta 2 are camera-oriented features for use by developers. One feature apparently detects smiling in photos, the other detects blinking. These detectors may hint at features coming to the iPhone, iPod, and iPad cameras in the future.

factune app 1

Let’s face it: sometimes when you take a picture of someone, they look downright unflattering. Maybe it’s that monster pimple on their cheek. Or perhaps the cat got angry again and left some scratches to the forehead.

Lightricks Ltd. — based out of Israel — released the application earlier this year called Facetune, and it promises to help with retouching images taken on your mobile phone while you’re on-the-go.

Tintype App Brings the Magic and History of Tintype Photography to iOS

tintypeapp

A few days ago, we told you about an app called Koloid that allowed iOS users to capture some of the look and feel of wet collodion photography using their iPhone. The $1 app let you not only take photos, but ‘develop’ them as well by tilting your phone to run chemicals over them.

The new app Tintype doesn’t go quite that far, but when it comes to authenticity, creator Michael Newton has made sure that his app brought the most accurate looking tintype processing possible to the iOS world. Read more…
