HideHere – for when you just got to blot it out

Preview-Utilities-HideHere-01

Don’t ask me what I meant, I just pounded the keyboard and a title popped up on the screen. What I do know is that developer sonson made this unique app to work extremely well with photos. So, while candiding about the city with your respectable 3GS camera, you have a backup plan in case any of your photos require discretionary measures. In Japanese, the blurring effect is called モザイク or mosaic, but in English, I cannot think of the name. Anyway, (cue the jingle) – there’s an app for that.

Encrypto in Review – Protecting your Photos from International Spies & Nosey Friends

encrypto1Ever been on a Top Secret Covert Operation behind enemy lines where you are  just moments from being captured by a brutal enemy who will stop at nothing to get photos of your wife and kids that you have strategically placed on your iPhone or iPod Touch? With so many of us having been in this position at one time or another, I believe we’ve all had the same thought cross our minds: “I wish there was an application I could use to protect those I love at this very moment.” Worry no longer. That application is here; your family and friends will always be safe thanks to Readdle.

Photo fx in Review – Photo editing at its Simplest Form

photofx1Let’s be frank here; this is another photo modifying/ enhancing application for the iPhone/ iPod Touch platform, and when one downloads this type of app there are a few certain things that one expects. These are things like changing the colours and hues of the photo, the contrast and brightness, and things like that. However, Photo fx packages the functions and enhancements for photos in a very different manner, which I think is more appropriate for mobile use.

ColorSplash in Review – Visual Emphasis + 1 Promo Code

01_colorsplash_trainSometimes photographs need a little more panache, style or dramatic emphasis but it’s not always convenient (or enjoyable) to transfer photos to a home computer for post-processing.

ColorSplash, the aptly named photographic manipulation app, gives you a bit of that Photoshop-like power in the palm of your hand. Specifically, it allows you to select the features of your images that will stand out in full color while the rest is converted to grayscale (black & white). While this single ability may sound simple, its results are anything but. Before we delve into the intricacies of the app, you need to see what I’m going on about.

A Look at Pharce – Make photos talk on your iPhone

pharce1Like iJiggles and Wobble, Pharce is the latest iPhone app that allows you to have fun with your photos. While you won’t see breasts or any body member for that matter bouncing up and down (hmm…bouncy bouncy…),  Pharce is a pretty cool app that allows you to make talking videos of any picture in your photo library. By utilizing the built in drawing tool, you are able to carve out a virtual mouth and chin area for your photos and record some crazy dialog via the built-in microphone (works with 2nd gen iPod as well). When all is said and done, your picture comes to life and lip-syncs to the recording. Very cool. Let’s have a look at some of its features.

Photogene in Review – Photoshop Mini in my Palm!!

photogene2I was a little sceptical when this category of apps debuted on the iPhone/ iPod Touch platform. The reason was because I have access to my computer every day, and when I know I have taken photos with my device, I’ll immediately sync them back with iPhoto. So I was thinking “why do photo editing on the phone when I have a 20” screen at home and iPhoto?” Well, apparently, some people don’t have access to a computer on a daily basis, or that they are always on the road, or just wish to modify the photo with friends on the spot. Whatever the reason, I decided to take a look at Photogene…

fast_tapHow many of you have wished that at the right moment, it was easier to locate that shutter button on your iPhone camera? You know, like for times when your finger’s fumbling around the screen just so you could take that self portrait.

If you’re one to have come across these situations before and/or use the iPhone camera often, then Fast Tap Camera is a must have for you.
