TrueHDR by Pictional was updated to version 2.2 today. For the launch of the new update, TrueHDR is on sale for a limited time for only $0.99 â€” thatâ€™s $1 off the regular price.
When it works, its subtle gradient effects and full-res output make Vignettr a good utility, especially priced at only a dollar. But it’s inconsistent handling of bright areas render it unusable for many photos.
The last monthâ€™s IPC theme was “Polarized Portrait” – any photo as long as they had the Polaroid instant border. The winner of this competition was iPhoneographer and blogger Edgar Cuevas with his great photograph â€œAir Pearlsâ€
Highlighted in this gallery are several of Nicholas Corsalini’s excellent Mugshots portraits, as well as some insight into the project from Nicholas himself.
HDR Fusion by Cogitap is a genuine HDR photo app that has been very good reviews in the App Store. It’s FREE today only — actually, for about a few hours more, so grab now and read later!
This week’s Life In LoFi’s Faved On Flickr. Incredible images shot and processed only with an iPhone.
Blog updates will resume soon — as in before the end of the flight, starting with two Faved On Flickr posts. My regular obsession with news, apps, and my random bits of iPhoneography should be back to their regular schedule within a day.

The official Flickr app from Yahoo was updated recently. The new 1.3 update has a bunch of new features and improvements. One of those “improvements” is a new photo picker, which unfortunately severely limits the photos you can upload from your iPhone.
Instagram is one of the most popular social photo apps currently available. Within a month of the release of its previous update, Instagram has been updated again. Although light on new features (as in none), the Instagram 1.0.7 update has two cool new filters and the return of an old fave removed from the app just a month ago.
While amazingly simple in many ways, Instagram can also be frustratingly limited. If you’re fairly new to Instagram and want to get more out of the app, you should check out the app Instagram Tips.
Very few apps generate as much anticipation as a Hipstamatic update. The wait is over for now. Hipstamatic 190 is available in the App Store. Although the 190 doesn’t have a new HipstaPak, this update has plenty of free new features, including a new flash for all and the addition of an excellent new film to one of the existing HipstaPaks.
