Admittedly, it’s a VERY first world problem, but a problem it is nonetheless: you hand your friend your phone to look at certain photos you took, and they go on a swiping spree. Immediately your mind goes into overdrive as you try desperately to snag the phone out of their grasp without looking too much like you’re hiding something.

We’ll call it ‘overswiping,’ and it’s even got its own meme. But you can save your ulcers, because a new app is making sure that overswiping is a thing of the past. Read more…

Characterizing a black and white camera app as ‘minimal’ feels a bit like characterizing an elephant as ‘big’… or a coffee shop in Williamsburg as ‘hipster.’ Of course it’s minimal, it only shoots black and white! But one look at the new iOS app Lenka and you’ll realize why we used that term. Read more…

When it comes to iOS as a whole, there’s one aspect the operating system that frustrates me more than any other: photo management.

As I’m sure many can empathize with, my Camera Roll is filled with a collection of images from varying sources, with minimal methods of automated separation.
