If you enjoy using Instagram to add effects to your photos and then sharing them with your friends, you'll be delighted to know about this new native iPad app for IGers.
The minimalist user interface is simple and elegant with a menu slider to leave the pictures with the most screen real estate. The interface is very easy to pick up and use.
The grid view is the home of the app and this is the main view.

Don’t get me wrong, iPhone Life-ers. I love me some Instagram (my handle is adamcharvey. Follow me!), but sometimes I want to edit and create instead of color correct and experiment with filters. I feel like I can take my superawesome photo skills to the next level and start getting truly creative with my stuff. So, the other day I set out to find some cool photo editing apps.
With all the chatter in the blogosphere, about new products
soon to be released, and patent battles
being fought on all fronts in the courts of law, I think it's important to keep in mind the old expression: "You ain't seen nuthin' yet!" Truly, hasn't this week been a great example of that.
With the court cases bringing out details Apple would just as likely have preferred to keep private, we have been granted a rare insight into the evolution of products in the Apple iDevice chain, as well as having been given glimpses into what Apple had in mind, in prototype form
, two years ago.
That said, can you imagine what Cupertino has in store for us in say, 5 years? That's not that long. Think about it. Within 5 years, devices and functions that are now, only in prototype/patent form, may very well be seeing the light of day. It's not for nothing that Johny Ive
says that the products Apple is working on now, are some of the best, most exciting products Apple has ever invented!
The stylus is the mousepad of today. You don't really need one, and you can probably get one for free or very little money, but once you've tried a genuinely well designed one, you won't want to do without it. Such is the case with the artfully named and designed Monet stylus from The Joy Factory.
Appolicious, a great website to visit if you're trying to find good apps, recently posted its list of best free apps of 2012 (so far). These are apps that have either been released this year or have received significant updates.
In the good old days, I used to edit photos of the kids, turn them into black and white images, and restore some color in a few select areas. I probably could have made a business of it. Now, you can do it on your iPhone or iPad in a few minutes. But change is a good thing, and so is Color Splash Studio from MacPhun. MacPhun has had a popular app for the Mac for a while, so it's nice to see iOS users get some loving. I just received my new MacBook Pro with Retina display, so I thought I would celebrate by editing this photo from last week's WWDC event when I saw Apple's Phil Schiller introduce the new MacBook.
