Silent Film Director now less silent

{EAV_BLOG_VER:c81cad4e1d55a8de}

Just a quick update, the cool old-timey movie making app for iPhone (and yes, it does run on the iPad too) just received an update that brings the number of available soundtracks up to 8.

And yeah, it’s a pretty cool app, especially if you’ve been wanting to play around with movie making on your iOS device — Silent Film Director (in the iTunes Store).

How to easily display your Instagram photos online

Instagram is a weird little iPhone app. On one hand, it makes it very easy to take and share very cool looking images with your iphone, as long as you’re sharing them with other Instagram users.

On the other hand, it’s kinda difficult to show those images to others in a simple web interface — or link to them in email, a web page, a tweet or a facebook status update.

Until now.
Instagrid.me is one of the first apps to use the new Instagram API to package  your images in a nice, clean and friendly display.

Simply hit the website, authenticate your Twitter credentials, and you have generated the gallery — here’s mine: instagrid.me/bgrier

Simple wins.

Review: Filterstorm – Ansel Adams said what?

Filterstorm 2, one of the universal image enhancement apps I’ve been watching for a while, just got a pretty good review over at MacLife:

With Filterstorm 2, universal for iPad and iPhone, you can “make” just about any photo your imagination conceives. It’s so good, in fact, that it may — for everyone but a true professional — obviate the need for desktop editing suites.

Well worth checking out.

How did National Geographic get those great shots?

I’ve always been a fan of National Geographic’s photography — and how could you not be? The National Geographic Society photographers have produced some of the best images of the last century.

And now, you can learn how National Geographic photographers get their shots with a new photo-magazine app, 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic.

Some of the more interesting features of the app include:

  • Learn the stories behind these iconic photographs from the photographers themselves, and see videos explaining how they captured their shots.
  • See the sequence of images made by the photographers in the field, and find out just how the “perfect shot” happened.
  • Share National Geographic’s 50 Greatest Photographs with your friends through email and Facebook.
  • Connect with National Geographic magazine’s community by viewing our top user-submitted photographs or submitting your best photographs.
  • National Geographic magazine attracts the world’s finest photographers. Here is your chance to learn more about them.

Well worth the addition to your iPad Darkroom library. Obviously, this app excels on the larger display of the iPad — it’s not available for iPod Touch or iPhone.
In the App Store – $4.99.
