iPhone Remote + iPole = cool self portraits and videos!

image

I've been using (and have written about) the iPole from FastCap, since I first picked it up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The hiking iPole model or the telescoping mini iPole both offer a tripod mount (and optional iPhone case with tripod thread) is a great way to take self portraits and include yourself in videos.  But the one downside is you have to stretch to turn on or off the recording mode.



(New) iPad (3) camera tests: unbelievable video resolution!

Back in the iPhone 4 times, I very happily reported on the phone having very good video resolution: something very-very-very-very rare in the digital stills camera / camcorder / smartphone world.

If you haven't heard of Mobli, or tried out the App (available for free in the Apple App store), now is a great time! Mobli, the new, up-and-coming social photo/video App is currently hosting a wild month of daily contests, with a brand new, New iPad as the prize, EVERY DAY! Yes indeed, you read that right! In an unprecedented move, Mobli is, for the month of May, giving away a New iPad every single day! The requirements for entering the different daily contests are quite simple, relatively speaking, considering the prize.

 



When it comes to iPhone cases, More is better.

I like to change my iPhone case frequently, depending on the situation. This weekend, I participated in a Startup Weekend (my app won Best Mobile App, by the way!) so I needed a case with a battery pack, during the 54 hour marathon session.



Save a tree, use Paper by 53

image

After a hiatus from writing, I couldn't really contain myself anymore, and wanted to share a great little app Paper by 53 (free) available from the app store.  It's hard to describe how elegant and useful this app is without giving some example of how you could use it, in my case as a journal sketching out concepts for piece of jewlery.  This app is sweet!



iDoc's Top 10 iPhone App Recommendations.

Considering how many apps are available in the Apple app store, not to mention how many are actually on my iPhone (close to 300), it's a bit daunting of a task to come up with only 10 apps to recommend here and now! There are simply so many amazing and award-winning apps out there and each is suited to an individual uniquely.



InFrame Foto: Powerful Functionality, Simple Interface, Instant Art and its Free!

It takes a great development team to put the power of iOS to work doing something useful in a third party app.  It takes a really great dev team to create something that’s not only useful, but produces superior results.  Apparently, InFrame Foto has a really, really great dev team.

InFrame Foto is a photo editing app that shines most when it comes to creating your own personal photo collages.  Rather than being an overall photo editor, InFrame Foto focuses on being the best of the best at giving you options to create great mash-ups of your pics. 



Apple sells over 1 million iPhoto apps; additional possible issues with new iPad

image

The website Macgasm recently pointed out that the new iPhoto app for iOS has been purchased over 1 million times in 10 days — and that the $5 million in revenue is likely more than RIM took in on sales of its PlayBook. This is one more bit of evidence highlighting the amazing popularity of the iPad and iPhone.

Are you bemoaning your enthusiastic but incredibly mediocre photography skills? Do you wish that there was a more accessible way for you to achieve artistic greatness? Are you looking for new and interesting ways to utilize the unique strengths and abilities of the iPad? All of these hopes and dreams can come to fruition with Colortive’s newest venture, Touchlook HD for iPad2.



Stop Motion Apps: More Fun Than I Should Be Allowed to Have

When I saw this article over at Mashable, I said to myself “I must try these immediately!”  Especially after talking about how much I use my iPhone camera in my last post! How could I not share my filmographic adventures with you, iPhone Life-ers?

So today, I have a very special treat because I have made incredibly entertaining (well, at least moderately entertaining) stop motion videos using three free apps. I had lots of fun testing these out and I’m excited to share the results with you.

I’m considering a career in animation now, just saying.
