Tiles can be fun...

image

Tile-R is a simple, but very interesting iPhone App. It uses your picture to make a set of tiles. You can adjust it to make as many tiles out of your picture as you want. While experimenting with it, I came across one tile of a picture of me that struck me. I know that you can crop the same thing. I think what I like about it is that I wouldn't have normally sliced the pictures the way Tile-R did it. I think it's cool. How about you? Incidentally, it's free.



Maybe I was wrong?

There are about a zillion photo apps for the iPhone, or at least it seems that way. When it first came out, I looked at Instagram and thought it was nice, but it didn't really interest me. Since then I've seen many folks use it, including Jack Dorsey. Yesterday, I saw it mentioned as the App of the Year in iTunes. Today, I saw an article about in Wired Magazine (Jan. 2012 Issue). Maybe I was wrong and it's worth another look? In the next few days, I'm going to use it...a lot. I'll get back to you with what I find. How about you? Where do you stand on Instagram? I'm interested to know.

Kogeto Dot captures the big picture

Kogeto: The name is inspired by, and reminiscent of Cogito Ergo Sum, Latin for "I think, therefore I am."  But the phrase that comes to mind when I tried Kogeto's DOT camera gizmo is "A picture is worth a thousand words."  Indeed, the Kogeto is worth more, because it lets you create panoramic views that are really interactive videos.  You can swipe your finger to pan in any direction and see the view as if a videocamera was pointed in that direction, at that time.  This is accomplished through a special lens attachment that snaps right on to your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.
