TinType by Hipstamatic brings 100-year-old photography to the iPhone

TinType by Hipstamatic1

When I was a kid, I would dig around in my grandmother’s box of old photographs. I distinctly remember the first time I came across a tintype picture. It was so unusual. Not just because of the silly knickers the boys in the pictures wore, but because of the ornamental frame it came in with the location stamped on the backside. The strange, slivery-black high-contrast of the image also gave it a haunted look.

TinType by Hipstamatic is the next big thing in the company’s trendy photo filters. With this one-off app, you can make your selfies look they were taken in the 19th century.... Read the rest of this post here

great big war

If you’re looking for a little entertainment this weekend in the form of a new iOS game, you might check out some of Rubicon’s titles. The UK-based indie developer has discounted nearly all of its iOS library down to free for the next two days.

This includes the massively popular turn-based strategy “Great War Game” series, as well as other games like Zombies: Dead in 20, Fruit Blitz and Yachty Deluxe. They normally range in cost from $1 to $3, so we’re talking $10+ in savings here.... Read the rest of this post here

Amazon has made its Appstore for Android obsolete

Since its creation, the Amazon Appstore stood apart, banned from being offered in the official store for Android apps, Google Play, until now... sort of. When Amazon recently updated its main Android app, it got a new "Apps & Games" department that duplicates the content found in the standalone Appstore app -- effectively making it both unnecessary and obsolete. Naturally, because Amazon's still delivering apps outside the confines of Google Play, you need to change your device's security settings to accept downloads from unknown sources to install them. The change is a welcome one -- reducing app clutter's a good thing -- and the convenience factor afforded by this consolidation should have Amazon selling more apps. Still, we're pretty sure that's not enough to make up for the Fire phone's hit to the company's bottom line.

How Complete My Bundle works

WWDC 2014 (IOS 8, App Bundles slide 001)

The much-improved App Store in iOS 8 features a number of enhancements. Case in point: app bundles. App bundles make it possible for developers to bundle up to ten of their existing iPhone and iPad applications in a single purchase at a reduced price.

Borrowing cues from the “Complete My Album” feature for music that debuted on iTunes in March 2007, app bundles are great promotional vehicles to drive sales and can serve as a nice reward for loyal customers.

But for the vast majority of ordinary users, app bundles are one of the least understood new features of the App Store in iOS 8. That it’s still very unclear how the App Store’s Complete My Bundle works is Apple’s fault.

And it certainly doesn’t make its users’ lives any easier with cryptic feature descriptions and the App Store’s non-intuitive bundle pricing mechanism. But don’t sweat, here’s everything you need to know in order to understand how Complete My Bundle works.... Read the rest of this post here

Camera+ offered for free for the very first time

Camera+ 6.0 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 002)

Camera+ by Taptaptap, the award-winning iPhone photography app and one of the longest-standing camera and image editing apps in the App Store, is available free of charge for a limited time, but only through Apple’s sleek Apple Store shopping application for the iPhone and iPad. That’s a cool $2.99 saving right off the bat over the app’s regular asking price.

No matter if you’re only mildly into mobile photography or a seasoned photographer, you really shouldn’t miss out on this promotion because Camera+ has never gone free since its inception in August of 2011. Again, you can’t just follow the app’s iTunes URL to grab Camera+ for zero bucks because the offer is exclusive to users who have the Apple Store application installed on their devices.

Jump past the fold for the full instructions.... Read the rest of this post here

Facebook takes on Reddit with anonymous posting app, Rooms for iPhone

Facebook Rooms 1.0 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

Facebook on Thursday unveiled a brand new iPhone application. Called Rooms and available free of charge in the App Store, it’s a flashback of sorts to the Internet bulletin boards which used to be all the rage in the 1980s. It’s essentially that anonymous Facebook sharing app that the The New York Times reported on earlier this month.

Facebook Creative Labs project, Rooms was designed to make it easy for users to create places for the things they’re passionate about, without too much fuss.

It’s fairly straightforward: just pick your favorite topic, customize the look and feel of your room and share with others. Others can join your rooms either through private invitations or by posting a public link.

If that sounds familiar, it’s because Room is a lot like Reddit. “It’s perfect for the things you love and interests that make you unique,” said the social networking giant.... Read the rest of this post here
