Typograffit Puts a New Twist on Text

Graffit, LLC, developer of Typograffit, has dubbed its iPhone/iPod touch app a “visual communication toy," and like most toys, it's big fun. Think of one of those crime-caper movie ransom notes composed of letters cut from newspapers and magazines and you get the general idea.

ArcSoft's Panorama Maker Offers Photographers a Whole Wide World

Buy 4 Bugs on the App Store

4Bugs is a Gorgeous Photo Hunt for Experienced Players

If you're familiar with any of the variety of PC games or touchscreen bar games, then you'll know what just what to do when you pick up 4Bugs from Root9 Medialab.

iFlashReady Helps Correct Pictures in Low Lighting

As far as photography apps go, iFlashReady is pretty basic. It is designed to help enhance pictures taken without the aid of a flash, such as those taken with the iPhone camera. At first, I thought iFlashReady worked in conjunction with the iPhone camera simultaneously, but after checking it out learned it is mostly a photo editing app that changes an existing image by lightening it up.

Buy ShakeItPhoto on the App Store

Take a Trip Down Memory Lane With ShakeItPhoto

ShakeItPhoto by Nick Campbell is a pretty simple app that works just like the iPhone camera app, but simulates a Polaroid camera.

This nifty little app enables anyone to view streaming video over Web cams —yours or someone else's — over any Wi-Fi and Internet connection.

Buy Mover+ on the App Store

Mover+ Makes it Simple to Share Photos Over Wi-Fi for Free

Someone infinitely more wise and insightful than myself once said that “the best things in life are free.” That maxim didn’t resonate with me until I became an adult as I realized I found the most pleasure in simple joys and pleasures.

Buy GeoTagr ~ Versatile photo geotagging on the App Store
