An update has arrived for Cocologics' photography app, ProCamera 8, adding manual controls and HDR.

Through their partnership with vividHDR, accurate three-shot HDR capture is now in the app with five different HDR styles (Natural, Vivid, Dramatic, Black and White, and Faded) available. Users can try out the new feature for free but will get watermarks on their pictures, with an in-app purchase of $1.99 required to remove these watermarks.

Meanwhile, new manual controls allow photographers using the app to adjust exposure levels thanks to new control over Exposure Compensation and the ability to manage ISO sensitivity and shutter speed. Control over color temperature and color tint has also been added, as has slow-motion playback for high frame rate videos for the videographers among you.

ProCamera 8 is available to purchase from the App Store now for $3.99, with watermark-less vividHDR available as an in-app purchase for $1.99.

Instagram, the internet's favorite photography app, has just released Hyperlapse, a time-lapse camera for your iOS device.

Hyperlapse does not require you to sign up or create an account and the app will let you save your videos to your camera roll or share directly with Instagram and Facebook.

You can download Hyperlapse for free on the App Store now.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Petcube is a WiFi camera and app combo that can let you keep your pet company while you're away. The Camera is a small cube that you place anywhere in your home that might have a good view of your pet and is still in range of your WiFi. Then, using the app, you can see what they're up to, give them some exercise with a built-in laser pointer, and share photos and updates of your furry friend.

The camera is in preorder sales right now and will be shipping October. You can buy one for $179 - which is $20 off the retail price. The Petcube app is available today for free on the app store and, while the camera is not available as of yet, you can still use the app to post adorable pic of your pets.

iblazr: Portable Flash for Smarphone Cameras from BiteMyApple.co.

Posted by Jessica Fisher on July 11th, 2014

BiteMyApple.co has announced that they will begin shipping their new iblazr today. iblazr is a synchronized flash for iPhone, iPad, and Android that allows users to take better illuminated shots.

Chris Johnson, Founder of BiteMyApple, said “Smartphones and tablets allow us to take high-quality photos anywhere, but the built-in flash isn’t enough during low-light settings. The iblazr provides users with the same illumination capabilities that a high-end camera provides. You can use the small external flash with your front or back camera so you’ll get the perfect shot or selfie every time.”

The iblazr has its own built-in, rechargeable 200mAh battery that provides more than 1,000 flashes or up to 40 minutes of constant light mode for videos. This means it won't kill your phone's battery while you take a video of your cat doing something ridiculous.

The Iblazr is available now for $49.99 on BiteMyApple.co.

148Apps 2013 wrAPP-Up - How I Used Apps to Help Me Launch and Run My Small Business

Posted by Angela LaFollette on December 30th, 2013

Writing has always been a passion of mine because it allows me to express myself. Although while writing is something that I'm passionate about, I also enjoy expressing myself through various other forms like drawing, scrapbooking, and graphic designing. Recently, one area of interest in particular has caught my eye: embroidery. Not just the process of actually embroidering items, but creating digital embroidery designs for others to stitch out with their machines.

Since I own virtually everything Apple, iOS apps have become a major part of my life. There are many apps that I use for my own personal amusement, but most of the apps that reside on the home screen on my iPhone and iPad are there to help me run my small business online. Not only have these apps helped me to get started in doing what I love, they continue to help my business to grow larger.

My main go-to app is Etsy. I set up an Etsy shop a little over a year ago, and it has helped me to achieve more than I could imagine. Most use the Etsy app to browse for unique and handmade items to buy, but there’s another side to Etsy that few know about. With Etsy, I am able to view the essentials about my shop such as orders, revenue, and views, and I can also communicate with buyers through conversations directly on my iPhone. I receive notifications instantly, which ensures that my customers are always getting quick responses. Etsy even allows me to add new items to my shop, change its appearance, and do virtually everything the website offers. My favorite feature is that the app makes a “cha-ching” sound with each sale that I make, which always brightens my day.

Camera+ Updated for iOS 7 Style and New Lab Feature

Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: CAMERA EXCELSIOR! :: Read Review »

Camera+, one of the favored camera replacement apps with over ten million copies sold has gotten a HUGE update in version 5.0. First and foremost is the new iOS 7 look and interface refinements throughout the app. Also included now are a host of photo editing features under the banner of Lab which allow quick yet robust changes to your photos. The new lab features include:


Clarity Pro
At the head of The Lab you’ll find Clarity Pro, which gives you adjustable Clarity and also adds a Vibrancy Boost adjustment which really brings out the life in your photos.

Straighten
Not only can you manually straighten your photos in The Lab… we’ve also included a slick auto-straighten feature.

Tint
Easily tone your photos whatever color you please. Go just a tad to set a subtle mood, all-out to make a bold statement, or anything in-between. And if you’re having a hard time choosing a color, simply roll the dice to get a random one… will it come up lucky seven or snake eyes??

Duotone
This takes the Tint adjustment and brings it to a whole other level. Try it. We’ll leave it at that.

Soft Focus
Give your photos a beautiful, ethereal quality with Soft Focus. This one’s addictive so promise not to overuse it, ok?

Film Grain
For the look of analog film. Fully adjustable so you can get the exact look you want.

Sharpen
This can often be the answer to a photo that came out a bit blurry.

Blur
Soften harsh pics. Or go to the extreme to make the perfect iOS 7 wallpapers. More on this later... ;)

Saturation
Take it down for a cool, faded look. Or crank it up to make your pics pop.

Temperature
Easily enables you to make your pics look “warmer” or “cooler”. It can be used for a simple compensation, or turned way up for a bold look.

Exposure
Photo overexposed? Underexposed? This is the fix.

Brightness & Contrast
Two classic photo adjustments. You’d think that not much needs to be said about these two… but we went out of our way to make them look really good.

Highlights & Shadows
Boost or cut the bright and/or dark parts of your photos. Compensate for imperfect lighting conditions, or go for an intense, artistic effect.

Vignette
Top-off the perfect set of adjustments with a stylish Vignette. Not only can you put on a traditional dark one, you can also go light for an airy feel.

Posted by Andrew Stevens on December 5th, 2013

“This new macro lens solution has particular value to the medical, dental, technology, fashion and other industries where impromptu detail shots have enormous benefit and becomes a handy tool,” said Patrick O’Neill, founder and president of olloclip. “You will be amazed by the level of definition you can now capture with your iPhone.”

Features of the olloclip Macro 3-IN-1 photo lens include:
• 7x MACRO - The lowest magnification option; revealed when you remove the 14X; provides a wider field of view with minimal bokeh.
• 14x MACRO - The default choice for medium magnification; easy to switch on and off using the lens adapter.
• 21x MACRO - Super high magnification focuses in on details and textures not easily seen with the naked eye; provides a tighter field of view and a higher degree of bokeh.
• Instafocus Hood - specially designed to diffuse the light and facilitate focusing.
