At the time, the app was very much in the ‘alpha’ stages, but it seems Adobe is finally primed to release the first version judging by the product references that accidentally appeared on the company’s site earlier this week. Read more…

Lenstag Unveils All New Mobile Apps, One Step Closer to Ending Camera & Lens Theft

lenstagapp1

Lenstag‘s stated goal is to put a stop to camera and lens theft, and for that reason alone photographers love them. The service is basically an online registry where you can securely document all of the gear you own and, in the event the unthinkable happens, report it as stolen and make it much more difficult for the thieves to sell that piece of gear.

But Lenstag creator Trevor Sehrer wasn’t done when he debuted the website — which you can learn a lot more about here. Last week Lenstag took another step towards the company goal when it released brand new iOS and Android apps. Read more…

Triggertrap Introduces New Flash Adapter and Speedy App Update

triggertrap1

You may remember Triggertrap from our coverage of it a little over a year ago. The iOS app, which has since made its way to Android as well, acted as a “jack of all trades” camera trigger that offered more than 12 different triggering options.

Several of those options — such as the sound and motion triggers — were geared towards high-speed photography, and a new update and flash adapter from the Triggertrap team are primed to take the app’s high-speed photo capabilities to the next level. Read more…

Photo Sharing App Color to Relaunch with Deep Facebook Integration

Color — the much-hyped but largely ignored photo sharing app — is back, and this time it’s built entirely around Facebook. One of the main reasons for the app’s failure the first time around was the fact that the photo sharing relied on proximity, a huge problem for new users when no one around is using it. Now, founder Bill Nguyen is trying to avoid the “ghost town” problem by harnessing the power of Facebook’s social graph.

Instagram Unleashes Version 2.0, Biggest Overhaul of App to Date

Today Instagram released version 2.0 of its wildly popular iPhone app, which will soon see its 10 millionth user. The base technology has been completely overhauled to bring speed to the app — filters now apply 200x faster, tilt-shift applies 100x faster, and both can be viewed live while shooting. Four new filters have been introduced (seen above), and borders on filters are now optional. Finally, the resolution of photos saved to the iPhone 4 has been increased from 612×612 to 1936×1936 (the size of photos uploaded to Instagram remains unchanged).

Noticeably absent from today’s announcement was an Android version of the app, though with this major release you can bet that they’re working harder than ever on getting it released.
