AT&T Next basically guarantees I'll upgrade my iPhone every year. I mean, why not? I wasn't _as_ excited this year as in previous years, but I was intrigued by the dual rear camera setup in the 7 Plus. So I stayed up till midnight and... didn't order an iPhone. Apple's website glitched. AT&T's website was barely usable and wouldn't complete a transaction. I told myself I'd just pick one up in a couple of weeks when the chaos died down.
For the first time ever, I preordered an iPhone on launch day. I had planned on staying up till midnight to get my order in as soon as possible, but I’m getting older, and didn’t make it till midnight. I did, however, wake up at 4am for no reason, so I ordered it then. The … Continue reading iPhone 6s Plus
I bought a WINGStand for the iPhone. It clips onto an Apple bluetooth keyboard and holds the iPhone (or other mobile device,) making it easy to type up a long document when you don't have access to your iPad or MacBook. It fits the iPhone with a shell case perfectly, but the case I have … Continue reading WINGStand for Apple Bluetooth Keyboard
Auto-upload I’ve posted before about the best ways to get photos from your iPhone to your computer if you don’t use iPhoto or Aperture. Dropbox’s auto-upload feature is still my favorite method of doing that. But what if I want to skip the computer altogether? I use the Flickr app’s auto-upload feature. Honestly, I can’t … Continue reading Flickr for iOS: Auto Upload
By Jenni BirchThe new iSight camera installed in the iPhone 5s is the same 8-megapixel camera that can be found in its predecessor. But, this time around, Apple has employed a bigger sensor to enhance its light sensitivity. The shooter is also equipped with a True Tone Flash for a more realistic image when doing night photography. … Continue reading Guest Post: How Good is The iPhone 5s Camera?
I'm not sure how I missed this one, but I just noticed that in iOS 6, I can change alert vibration patterns, and even create my own patterns. Very cool. Go to Settings > Sounds, then select one of the alerts to customize. Text Tone, for example. Scroll all the way to the top of … Continue reading TUESDAY TIPS: Custom Alert Vibrations in iOS 6
There's an iOS update for the official Flickr app in the App Store today. I had previously deleted the Flickr app from my phone in favor of FlickStackr because the Flickr app was abysmal. The new version of the Flickr app is pure awesome, though. Even the login screen is beautiful. Once you login, you're … Continue reading New Flickr for iOS is Full of WIN
Apple's Photo Stream functionality is awesome. Take pictures with your phone, and when you get back to your computer, they're automatically imported to iPhoto or Aperture via the cloud. But what if you don't use iPhoto or Aperture? I've really tried to like Aperture, but Lightroom just works better for me. Thankfully, with a little … Continue reading TUESDAY TIPS: iPhone-Lightroom Workflow
I love data almost as much as I love photography, so I want EXIF information to be retained. I've noticed recently, while browsing through my Lightroom catalog, that a lot of my iPhone photos are missing information. So I wanted to perform a highly technical and scientific test to see which iOS apps did the … Continue reading iOS Photo Editing Apps and Data
Camera+ just updated to version 3. If you've never used it before, now would be a great time to give it a shot. It's a great replacement for the built-in camera app for the iPhone. Check out all the new features, then pick it up in the App Store - Camera+.
