freshly squeezed // new apps

I collect iPhone apps like some people might collect shoes or handbags. You can never have too many apps [until your device is full, of course].

I’ve just ticked over 300 apps on my phone. Yes, 300, that’s not an extra zero by mistake. Most are photo and video related. Sure I don’t use them all but you never know. What can I say, I’m a hoarder.

Anyway, I’ve bookmarked a few new and new-to-me ones recently that I thought you might like to try, too.

Now these are iOS links but I’ve included Android notes where appropriate.

  1. New this week is Bokeh. There’s a great write-up of it here. I love being an early adopter because I got to snag my name. [Plans for Android in works]
  2. You might have already seen this one around, or even already used it, but Flipagram is a bit of fun, allowing you to bring your photos to life in a short video. Read more here. [Similar to another one of my favourites Everlapse] Also available in Android.
  3. One thing the Mr [who is also a bit iPhoneography addicted, completely my fault] have always wanted was a decent long exposure setting on the iPhone. Then I spotted this post on the Instagram blog and download Slow Shutter Cam. Can’t wait to try this out. [iOS only]
  4. Another one for low light, Average Cam Pro takes several shots at once, analyses them and normalises the result to get the best-lit shot.
  5. OKDOTHIS is an app with prompts for photo ideas as well as a network to share their ideas. While I don’t really need another network, I love the prompt idea. Via here. [iOS only]

I haven’t downloaded this one but it looks cool. FaceCrypt allows you to unlock your phone with a selfie.

Snapshots // October 13 ~ fly away

I look back on this week and the photographer in me is a happy gal. This is a great snapshot of my week and I’m managing to keep up with the photo-a-day challenge.

Snapshots // October 13 ~ limoncello and coconut ice-cream cake

Of course, any week is a little sweeter with some yummy dessert leftovers ~ and there were a few treks to the freezer this week to grab another slice of this delectable limoncello and coconut ice-cream cake made from a donna hay recipe. This is simple and scrumptious!

Snapshots // October 13 ~ market flowers

Some bright blooms are bringing the spring colour inside.

Snapshots // October 13 ~ off to the races

A few hours enjoying the spring sunshine and some socialising trackside.

Snapshots // October 13 ~ lunchtime companions

And it wouldn’t be bee week without snapping some of my buzzy friends who were busy in the garden during a lunchtime outing.

Snapshots // October 13 ~ photo a day wrap

And this week in a photo a day: 8 o’clock, what you saw today, corner, pink, hands, m is for … and below.

Spring is such a great time to be out snapping!

  3. I look forward to the Monday menu board at m-dashing

What have you bookmarked to read, try or do this week?
