The new Landcam 1.1 update is out and includes a significant improvement, as well as adding a few new minor features. Usually, I’ll let my initial review sit for awhile, but the speed in which they are addressing both my public concerns and the private ones I’d mentioned to the developers before the app’s release deserves credit.
My review of Landcam. For an Instagram front-end app, there’s a lot that’s good here. It’s pretty to look at and easy to use, but can be limiting when you actually get your hands dirty with it. I like aspects of the app, but overall, Landcam leaves me wanting more.
The olloclip Telephoto + Circular Polarizing Lens for iPhone has been announced and is available for pre-order. It’s the follow up to the excellent original olloclip 3-in-1 Lens attachment. For a 2X telephoto, will it be worth it? I’ve got an exclusive review.
Life In LoFi’s David Bird takes a second look at overlooked, mid-level photo editor Luminance, a simple, yet powerful photo editing app that anyone can enjoy and afford without breaking their bank.
iPhone photo app PhotoNova 2 is an interesting combination of filters and selective ways to apply them. Recent updates have really stepped PhotoNova 2 up few notches. I’ve reviewed this app on the blog previously. Its recent updates of make it worth a second look.
LoFi reviews layrs, a new layer style editing app. Not a true layers editing app, but has some good, limited effects. A lot of quirks, including a sticky masking tool that’s pretty frustrating.
Funky text app Over was just updated. It’s now got a bunch of additional free fonts and artwork. What’s the catch? You have to download it before Monday, July 15.
We review Tangent, an excellent app on many levels. You can use it to easily make wonderful modern creations. In a crowd of faux-retro Instagram clones, Tangent is an exciting discovery.
We review Koloid, a good, interesting, but not essential black & white iPhone phto app that creates unique vintage effects.
I like light leak apps. They’re a great way to add analog-style lo-fi photo effects. There are several good ones available. New photo app Light Leaks by One Apps is not one of them.
The LoFi review of Mextures, a recently released texture overlay app. It lets you add grit, grain, light leaks and other “schmutz” to grunge up your photos as much as you want. Or, as little, which is part of the greatness of this app.
There are quite a few text overlay apps available. Over is one of the slicker ones in the App Store that lets you add text and other effects to your photos. I’ve got a few download codes to give away this week.
