They say a picture is worth a thousand words but what if you need more than a thousand words? You combine multiple photos into one, throw in a few frames, round the corners and share it with your friends. That’s what you do.
Combining photos isn’t something new. You’ve probably seen your friends doing it on Facebook and Instagram for ages but with so many different apps out there to choose from, how do you know which one is best for you? In this post we’ll take a look at three of the more well-known photo combiners (PicFrame, Diptic and Frametastic), investigating the pros and cons of each, so that you can easily see which is the best one for your needs.
Typically, you want a really powerful computer for video editing. It’s a processor-intensive task requiring significant expenses in both the software and hardware arenas. However, the iPhone is changing this paradigm. A few years ago, who would’ve thought we’d soon be shooting, managing and even editing high quality video content all on one pocket-sized device?
Today we’ll take a beginner’s look at what the iPhone offers for movie makers. We’ll start off with a brief look at the specs of the hardware and then move on to some great apps that you’ll want to check out to help you become the Spielberg of iOS.
Photography is one of my absolute favorite sections of the app store. The iPhone’s impressive combination of cameras and technology gives developers an amazing platform on which to build some wildly creative and highly functional applications.

In the past we’ve discussed at length the new fad of vintage photography via apps such as Instagram. There are plenty of outspoken haters of this trend but the rest of us are happy to enjoy the fun of bringing a little old school goodness to our high tech phones.
Some forward thinking developers have already begun looking past still photographs and bringing the same vintage trend into video. The result is a quickly growing selection of apps that make it incredibly easy to create video clips with enough retro flare to make Hipstamatic users green with envy.
One of the most useful features of the iPhone is it’s in-built camera. Despite the very limited pixel count and disputable optical quality, it still allows you to take snapshots whenever you please. But what if the photos don’t turn out exactly the way you want them to? Or maybe you want to give them just that little “extra” that makes them an eye catcher? Apple’s native camera and photo apps don’t allow for any kind of editing, but there are many apps that can.
The following article features four popular photo editing & manipulation applications for the iPhone and takes a look at what they can do on-the-fly for your photos.
