Photoshop Touch comes to the iPhone (and Android)

So, Adobe brings Photoshop to the iPhone and Android at last. Cool.

It’s priced at $4.99. Just thought I’d mention it.

Pollisynth, first thoughts

I posted about Pollisynth when it arrived on the app store. It’s a simple idea for an app, and one that’s been done before with varying degrees of success. However, this app is really quite well designed. It does what many others do and gives you a tiny tutorial when you first open it, but then it is really straightforward to use, and the results, well, you’re not going to use them in your next symphony (I might of course), but they’re not awful.

I should perhaps preface these comments with the fact that I’ve only spent a matter of minutes with this so far. I probably will spend more time with this app and see what it can really produce. I’ll report back when I’ve done more research.

If you’re interested in this sort of thing, then also try Barcodas, which makes little tunes from bar codes.

World of Tab meets photographer Fatsarazzi

A bit of an advert I know, but interesting to see an ad video like this that isn’t about someone talking about the iPad.

Instagramers set up their own exhibition

I like instagram, it’s fun and easy to use, but these instagramers have gone one (or perhaps many) steps further by taking their instagram work and turning it into a real world exhibition.

I think it’s a great idea, and one I might even follow up on myself as they’re London based.

Photo Stats for iPhone

Whilst photo stats doesn’t do anything with your photos it will tell you a lot about the photos you’ve taken on your iPhone and make some really cool looking infographics with them.

I saw this at Creative Applications and thought it might be of interest to quite a few people. It looks like a really different approach to video.

Mute Synth on Blurb

I tried out the Blurb mobile app with some of the pictures I took at Short Circuit at the Roundhouse last week. I think it isn’t a bad way to share ‘stories’.

You can see them results here.
