Posted by on June 2nd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Lorystripes, a photography striping utility that we had an opportunity to review late last year, has received a sizable update. The update includes three new packs with 30 new striping possibilities, new messaging and export options, and more.

According to creator Laurent Rosset, “LoryStripes set the bar high from the very beginning with regard to both technology and artistic appeal. We’re continuing that tradition with LoryStripes 1.2, propelling photo editing and enhancement into a new era of possibility. The graphic striping and ribbon components are stunning.”

Lorystripes is available for $1.99.

• Three all new packs containing 30 brand new striping possibilities
• Collapsible stripe menu for faster, simpler shape navigation
• User preferred packs remain open for easier access during editing
• Smoother, more refined image edges via higher resolution texture tools
• Faster, more accurate masking for a highly polished finish
• Automatically saves last edits, even after time lapses
• New export and sharing options, including messaging, email, copying and printing

Yeti. Sasquatch. Wendigo. The Abominable Snowman. Bigfoot. Call them whatever you want, but they’re awfully elusive creatures. At least they were. Soon you’ll be able to track these misunderstood beasts down on your own personal photo safari thanks to Bigfoot Hunter.

Bigfoot and all his fuzzy friends are all out there in the world somewhere, going about their woodsy business and being all camera shy. It’s up to you to track them down and take their picture with your iOS device. Of course it’s not quite as simple as spinning around with your iPhone and clicking the shutter at the right time. Each stage will give you three shots to snap a worthwhile photo of your target, but it has to be in a specific pose for the images to be worth anything. Bonus points are also available if you can keep things in focus and framed well (which is a lot tougher than it sounds). A swipe is included as well, for those moments where you just don’t have the room to whip the top half of your body around all the time.

Bigfoot Hunter will be declaring open season (for snapshots) soon.

Handy Clap Activation Feature Comes to Cycloramic Panorama App

Posted by on April 14th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

While there are dozens of apps that make panoramas in the App Store, Cycloramic from Egos Ventures set itself apart by being the first to be able to take these photos by spinning itself on a table using your phone’s vibration. But today, the app is getting even better in a recent update that adds clap activation.

Previously, using Cycloramic could be somewhat hard; you had to balance the phone standing up on the table and try to press a button on the screen to start the spinning photo action. Now, in version 4.9 of Cycloramic, users will be able to start the panorama-taking process with a clap or a whistle. The update also includes the usual “optimizations.”

You can get Cycloramic on the App Store for $1.99.

A little over a year ago, everything changed. My daughter, Peregrine (Pip, for short), was born, and along with the myriad recalibrations, adjustments, and joyous changes that birth brought with it, I also finally came to terms with the true value of the iPhone camera: baby pictures! Hundreds and hundreds of them (no exaggeration) were taken by me, by friends, and by family, and then scattered over hard drives, social networks, and of course iPhones. The problem then became figuring out how to organize and store them privately and securely. As a devoted Mac user it’s easy enough to keep photos stored on iPhoto, but that’s a local option only, with limited cloud storage and sharing (those 1,000 photos on iCloud? Please!), and god forbid my hard drive crashes without proper backup.

I thought all of my problems with cloud storage for photos were solved when Everpix came along. Here was a fantastic, well-designed app that also had great web-based software and a Mac-based uploader. Best of all, it could load in all of my photos from various social streams, eliminate or hide duplicates, and handle a potentially unlimited number of photos for a reasonable monthly or yearly price.

There was just one big problem though; Everpix went out of business.

Before I get to the heart of this article, there are a few lessons to learn from my Everpix experience.

One: Always keep all of your photos on a local hard drive.

Two: Backup said hard drive as often as humanly possible (something I still don’t do, so do as I say, not as I do).

Three: Never, ever assume that a site, app, or service will exist forever. It won’t; it just won’t. They will all go away at some point. Some will last five years. Some will last a year or two. Some of the very best won’t even make it that long.

So I found myself back at square one, trying to find another good (read, as close to the effortless Everpix as I could get) cloud-based storage solution for my photos. Read on for my look at nine different cloud storage services that work with iOS.
