Sending Ransom Notes to my friends!

image

I admit it. I've been avoiding schoolwork and spending too much time on iPhone apps. How can I concentrate on school work when I keep getting apps to review like Ransom Letters (v. 1.5).

Tubey Lite (free) is fun, but you be the judge click here to view my quick video. Now whether you want to purchase the full version Tubey ($2.99) you’ll need to weigh, but it will get rid of those watermarks.I think that this app might have some real utility for High School sports enthusiasts wanting to get images out from the latest tournament, or for Real Estate professionals wanting to get their top listings out there and shown off in a really creative and accessible way.



Do you remember the photo booths on the boardwalk?

MyPhotoBooth (v 2.0) brings back memories! Remember the days of the photo booth on the boardwalk, when you and a friend would sit in the booth all scrunched up together on a single stool, say cheese, and in a few short minutes, out would pop four photos on a strip? Now, you can create your own photo strip using your iPhone! 
 
This one offers more flexibility and it's faster. The strips can be vertical or four squares in a larger square.

Last Thursday Apple released the free Photoshop.com Mobile app, and it already has about 2,400 ratings and 675 reviews. The app lets you do basic editing such as crop, rotate, and flip photos. You can adjust exposure, saturation, and tint. Special effects include Vibrant, Pop, Border, Warm Vintage, Rainbow, and more. Most of the reviews are enthusiastic.

There are a large and growing number of apps for the iPhone targeted towards art and photography, OutColor is one of them. OutColor ($1.99) by Vizros Software is an app which allows you to do some fairly sophisticated masking of images you have on your iPhone. For the casual iPhone user masking allows you to overlay different images, colors, etc on-top of a base image, as you erase layers on top of the base image you allow what’s beneath to come through, the effects can be amazing.   Users of software like Photoshop, or Sumo Paint, etc are probably quite familiar with masking, but if you’re new to digital art th
