Camera+ Gets Even More Awsome!

If you take photos on your iPhone or iPad, you owe it to yourself to buy Camera+(.99 on sale now) by tap tap tap. This has been my go to photo app for a couple of years. I love how it allows me to have both a focal point and exposure setting at the tap of a finger. It has a stabilizer that helps me take perfect photos even when I shake. It has editing tools and filters that rival many of the most popular photo apps you may already be using.

One feature I like is that it stores photos taken with Camera+ in a folder called Lightbox and not in my photostream. That prevents my photos from automatically being uploaded to all my devices. I can choose which photos to be moved individually.

New Features

They just updated their app and added some really nice features. My favorites are: - a flash for the front facing camera. How they do this is flash a white screen as the camera takes your picture. - a horizon marker so that you can adjust camera tilt in real time. - a live exposure setting that displays the iso, shutter speed and more discreetly on the screen so you can see it change in real time to get the best photo possible.

The developers have put Camera+ on sale in celebration of the update. So now there is no reason to not have the best photo app on your device.

You Can Capture Anything You See

Have you ever wanted to take a picture of something on your computer screen? Just yesterday I was looking at an ad
that was sent to me in a format that wouldn't print correctly. I needed to send it by mail to a client, so was in a jam.
Jing came to my rescue. All I did was click on Jing, outline the area I wanted to print, click save and then print. Total, 15 seconds.

That's a good enough reason to download it right now, but wait for it......it also does video. With the free version you can
record full motion video from your screen along with audio so you can record a how to or instructional clip. With the paid
version ($14.95/yr) you can add video from your webcam as well as load directly to YouTube. here is an example of an image capture of Jing's homepage. Now the other amazing thing that you can do is annotate the screen
captures to help explain or highlight important ideas.

The uses for this are endless. You could pull up photos and mark them up to send to friends, show your mom how to use craigslist,
take a picture of just a portion of a website, or even mark up a document while you are on the beach and everyone thinks you're working.

All this for free or go pro for the ridiculously low price of $14.95/yr.
