Apple’s September announcement of the iPhone 5s and 5c brought welcome news for users wishing for new productivity applications along with their enhanced devices: free copies of the popular iWork and iLife apps. Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, are staples for any professional interfacing with Microsoft Office documents, Adobe Acrobat files, Open Office formats, and the options even include saving certain Pages documents as iBooks files. iLife includes applications like iPhoto, GarageBand, and iMovie
Today, Apple expanded the generosity in multiple ways. In addition to introducing the new iPad Air, the updated MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro computers, the company announced that iWork and iLife will now come free on any new iOS or OS X device purchased.
Just as Apple found a way to enhance the iPhone 5s camera without changing much of the packaging, the folks at Ollo have done the same with their popular Olloclip. The accessory clips on to the corner of a naked iPhone, positioning a set of lenses precisely over the built-in camera.
Back in the days of iOS 5, when the iPhone 4S was the only high-speed video recording-capable iPhone model, I didn't really recommend Better Camcorder (free with a 10-second restriction; unlock costs $1.99), because it was clearly weaker than the alternative, SloPro (free).
Now, exactly the opposite is true: The just-released version (1.7) of Better Camcorder is clearly superior to SloPro with regards to making use of the brand-new zooming-specific features of iOS 7. And the in-app purchase unlock only costs half that of SloPro.
I use my iDevice cameras all the time, literally on a daily basis, and I know I'm not alone. You can probably relate when I say that since I usually have my iPhone with me, that I find myself taking more pictures than ever, and good quality photos too! One of the first rules of photography if you want to get priceless shots, is to always have a camera with you. With the rise of the camera-enabled smartphone, virtually everyone seems to have an iPhone camera at the ready these days. To support us in our photography aspirations there are no shortage of excellent camera apps in the App Store, and over the years I've tried many of the best of them. Out of a crowded field, I've distilled a list of my top 5 iPhone camera apps, ones that I've put to continual use, and they’ve consistently performed well. Read on, some of my top picks may surprise you!
EDUMOTION's Stop Motion- Animation Pro is a remarkably easy-to-use application that puts the power of stop-motion filming in its users’ hands. With Stop Motion Animation Pro, no special equipment is necessary to create your very own stop-motion film. Stop- motion film is created by playing many still frames in quick succession, in which a scene has been subtly adjusted for each frame. This creates the illusion of smooth motion when using a series of inanimate scenes.
Jellybus, Inc. recently launched PicsPlayPro, and the popularity of this feature-filled photo-editing app for iOS devices has exploded. The reason for its fans fervor is a truly impressive list of photo-correcting features. It’s no exaggeration to say that PicsPlayPro outperforms many desktop PC photo editing programs in terms of feature set.
