Don’t be put off by the free price of Camera Awesome. Even in its base configuration, it’s a premier all-in-one camera replacement and one of the best camera replacement apps available. If they charged for the base app, I wouldn’t complain — it’s that good.
“glitch app” Decim8 has just released a major update. Version 3.0 is out and has several new filters, a new interface, a new icon and a few caveats to go with this update.

There are a lot of fauxlaroid apps and photo apps with instant camera effects. Some of them emulate instant photos better than others. New photo app PolarCam tries to, but just misses the mark for me in capturing that visceral magic of classic instant cameras.
The first iPhone Photo Show event will take place in Naples from Friday, February 24 to Sunday, February 26, 2012. It features 34 artists selected from the more than 1000 artists in the WiAM movement, the Worldwide iPhoneography Art Movement.

Here’s the February 19, 2012 edition of our weekly iPhone photography showcase, Faved On Flickr. It’s a weekly selection of some of the outstanding iPhoneography submitted to Life In LoFi’s Flickr group.
