Our app ClickNowApp is now free

Earlier this year we launched our app, ClickNow. The app that plays a sound to attract the attention of your favorite pet, and then takes a photo. The app was Swedens most downloaded the following days, and is still doing well in the stats.

This app is now free to download – I hope you will enjoy it!

Instagram Launches a New Free Timelapse-app

If you like Time-Lapse clips and you’re using an iPhone your prairies will soon be heard. Not only will Apple update the camera-app with this feature, today Instagram launched their own version Hyperlapse, packed with some really good intelligence.

My first tests looks promising, so since it’s free, go and try it out. If you want to share your first tests, just contact me in the commenting field.

Best wishes for the evening

Do You See The Face In The Cloud?

It was quite awhile ago since I posted any photos. At the same time, I’m having a little project at my Facebook-page with “One Image a week”. So I thought about this brilliant idea to use the at both my Facebook page, and here. 🙂

This photo was taken at lunch time this Saturday. I spent the weekend in Vemdalen, a ski resort in Sweden, and the wind during these days were hard, to say the least. This is taken at the top with an iPhone 5S.

What I enjoyed with the scene was the contrast between the wind and the sunny sky, at the same time as the snow passed by, creating those small white dots that almost looked like stars.

While you’re at it; do you see the face in the clouds?

Current Best Photo Editor App for iPhone / iPad – Photo Toaster

During the time of this blog I’ve now and then written reviews about best photo apps for iPhone / iPad. Some of the apps have been about the editing part, while others have been filter apps and so on. There haven’t been one app that has it all.

        

Now we’re close to that; the new version of Photo Toaster brings together almost all of my apps into one.

The apps that I’ve used most frequent has been Photoshop Express, for reducing noise, and handling levels like exposure, temp, tint, saturation and so on. 645 Pro for B/W. Snapseed and Photo Editor for harder effects and so on. All these features are now available in one single app – Photo Toaster.

Even though I think that Photoshop Express still is better at reducing the noise, Photo Toaster is “good enough”, and I guess I can say that about all those features. The benefit of keeping all of those features into one app is higher than the workflow of using several apps.

And on the topic of workflow. I really like that shortcut to the “recent edits”. Great small feature which saves a lot of time.

The app is currently priced at $2.99 and I think that it may be your best $2.99 investment at the moment.

Since my on/off button is broken which leaves my out of an easy way to take screen dumps, I’ve just attached the app’s own preview.

Best wishes for Saturday

Free iPhone photo app review – Vintage

This is quite traditional filter-app The difference between this and most of the current filter-apps may be that there are fewer filters to use, and filters that are the opposite of subtle.

I’m not the biggest fan of using filters, but when I use them I want to use them in a way that it really shows that filter’s been used. With that said, this app contains some really nice ones, if you like to use filters.

If you download the free app you’ll have to live with some ads, but I don’t think that they are too annoying.

The test photo is a photo I took with my iPhone 5. Below it, you’ll find the same photo after the Vintage app is used, and at the bottom you’ll find two screen shots.
