Big Lens is FREE for a limited time. It’s normally $0.99 and well worth a dollar. It’s more than another fake focus or tiltshift app. It’s an excellent faux depth of field app. The end result is a more precise, more versatile, more realistic focus.

Swipe is a new app allows you to add beautiful typography to your images with a simple swipe of your finger. Select from over 100 fonts, adjust size, color, transparency, rotation, and alignment. I had a chance to work with the app. I’ve also got some promo codes to give away this weekend.
The classic Vint B&W got a new update this week. It sports a new interface, tools, icon, and name. It’s now called Vint B&W MII. The update is bound to make a lot of old iPhoneographers happy in a nostalgic sort of way.
Classic iPhoneography app ClearCam is updated and back in the App Store. I recommend ClearCam if you are interested in taking supersized iPhone photos. The image quality you will get in-camera is unparalleled. If you own an iPad or iPod Touch, this is an essential purchase.
