image

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.



Your iPhone Camera: Helping You Find Your Car and Other Cool Stuff

image

How often do you use your iPhone’s camera feature?

Do you save it for just taking pictures of your friends and family and maybe the occasional jackwagon parking job (and then running it through FAIL Maker to make it that much funnier), or do you use it for nontraditional purposes?

I’ve found ways to use my phone’s camera that help make life a little bit easier.

For example, have you ever thought to use your phone to take a picture of the lot number you’re parked in so you don’t lose your car every time you go to the mall?



The History of Cameras ... iPhone Style

image

The history of cameras goes back more than one hundred and fifty years. The History of Cameras App doesn't go through every aspect of it, but it does cover the highlights...in an interesting way. There are screens that show specific bits of information, such as how Richard Leach Madox perfected the dry plate. Accompanying each of these nuggets is a button that lets you see ... kind of ... how the process works. It's really a fun and very interesting App ... and it's free. If you are interested in photography, try this one for sure.



Video for the Video Idiots?

image

When it comes to making videos, I'm one of those who just can't do it. The editing software seems like it wants me to get frustrated. I rarely take any videos because I know that no one, including me, will want to see it. However, there seems to be a possibility that this might change. Enter Magisto! It seems as though the folks who made it had me in mind. It's an iPhone App that does the video editing for you. How do they do it? Who knows...and who cares? As long as it gets done, I'd be happy. I've been doing some experimenting with it and it seems to work. I'll be uploading a video in the next few days.



Hackers' corner: enhancing the iPad 2 camera

Now that iOS 5.0.1 has become hackable, I've been continuously receiving requests to make my previous, strictly iOS4-specific iPhone 3GS / 4 video camera enhancer tool (available in Cydia: see THIS) iOS 5-compliant.

Having successfully closed a major project I've been working on for months, I immediately moved to devoting my free time to updating my tool.



iPhone vs. Brownie Hawkeye

image

The Brownie Hawkeye reminds me of the current iPhone. Why? Here are some comparisons:

1. Both are (or were) ennormously popular.

2. They both are known for portability. Although you couldn't keep a Brownie in your pocket it could be easily carried around...especially if you compare it to the view cameras that it replaced.

3. They are both very simple to use. You took a picture with a Brownie by looking down into the finder and clicking a button.

4. They both became the de facto leader in the field. Apple dominates just as Kodak did.

5. Simplicity defines both cameras.



TumbleOn to the best of Tumblr photo blogs!

If you are a Tumblr fan, and looking for an app that makes it easy to follow your favorite photo blogs (or find new ones), TumbleOn might be just what you have been looking for. In similar fashion to reader apps like Pulse, TumblOn leverages the smooth side-scrolling features of the iPad touch screen to make it easy to browse your favorite feeds. The app also provides handy quick-pick services that help you drill down on the best blog content, and even reblog it on your own tumblelog site.
