Pop Camera : A New Fun App for Your iPhone

Pop Camera For Your iPhone

Your iPhone will have a new fun app called the Pop Camera. This is a new fun toy camera app with which you can choose different multi-shot cameras. You can also have different film effects.

Meet The Pop Camera

Pop Camera is an app which turns your camera into an old school toy camera without buying the said camera or fussing with film. The app has been around for a few years but it is yet to be discovered. The app lets you take photos using different modes. These modes replicate effects from cheap cameras. It produces random imperfections such as light leaks, vignettes, and over saturation of photographs.

What Can The App Do

This app simulates those and lets you have a variety of shot sequences. When you take a photo, the camera comes up with dots on how many shots on the camera you have chosen. They light up to indicate how many shots were taken. Once you tap the shutter button, the camera starts taking pictures. You cannot control the shutters once you start it, whether you choose a single or multiple shot camera. You may have a variety of results because of this. The photos are produced sequentially for multiple shots. It is an offbeat way to shoot live events, or other creative shots.

Other Features

Filters and sequence shots are applied after you take the photo. So you do not know what the final image will look like when you take the photo. It will make you think of framing and other aspects before you touch the shutter button. Taking photos the traditional way is a nice contrast with the digital way of doing it or a regular camera app. You can also customize your photos with this fun app. You can add time stamps, photo frames, and buy additional film filters and cameras.

The Pop Camera is equipped with 8 different cameras. It can take up to sixteen photos, or one double exposed shot. Each camera has different funky designs, and lets you choose from fourteen different film types.
So if you want to make your image capturing a fun experience, try out this new fun app for your iPhone, the Pop Camera.

Rovio: Amazing Alex on top spot for iPhone and iPad

A day after Rovio launched its latest game, Amazing Alex notched the top spot in the top paid app category for iPhone and the iPad.

Rovio, which is also responsible for developing the popular Angry Birds franchise, is back at the pedestal after Amazing Alex became a huge success last week and it doesn’t seem to look like slumping.

Amazing Alex topped the best seller for the iPhone app in at least 35 countries, while its iPad app reigned supreme in about 50 countries.

On the other hand, the Android version of Amazing Alex climbed at the 5th spot in the top paid apps category on Google Play.

Rovio seems to have the Midas touch, as everything that they seem to touch turns into a huge success. With Amazing Alex, Rovio has once again proved that they are here to stay. The company will still be releasing new Angry Birds games in the future, so it seems like the cash inflow for the company won’t likely end sometime soon.

Amazing Alex is a chain-reaction style-game. Your job is to help Alex solve puzzles in his bedroom.

Reviews for the game weren’t good at all. But if we gauge success with the number of times it has been downloaded, then Amazing Alex surely is a very successful game.

iPhone app allows you to stalk on women gets pulled out

An iPhone app that seems to be developed to stalk women using Foursquare has been pulled out of the iTunes app store by its developer after hoards of criticisms plagued the app.

The “Girls Around Me” app uses data from the check-in service of the location based social networking service Foursquare. The app tells you where women had checked in within your area. Foursquare initially yanked banned the app from accessing their data. The developer then decided to pull it out of the app store afterwards.

Foursquare spokesperson Laura Covington said, “This is a violation of our API policy, so we’ve reached out to the developer and shut off their API access.”

The app also enables the user to view the Facebook information of those ladies that checked-in Foursquare.

Gizmodo called the “Girls Around Me” app the world’s creepiest.

According to Fairfax Media, the app was first publicized in the Cult of Mac Blog in March 30. The editor of the blog, John Brownlee said it was “as innocent as it is insidious”.

He said, “It is just as likely to be reacted to with laughter as it is with tears. It is as much of a novelty as it has the potential to be used a tool for rapists and stalkers.”

After releasing the BMW Z4: An Expression of Joy Lite, a free app that allows users to create works of art on a customizable BMW Z4 Roadster, the Bavarian automaker has launched its second app that’s unlike its useless casual brother, is actually useful.

The M Power application is an app for your iPhone or iPod Touch that measures vehicle acceleration using the device’s built-in accelerometer. When placed in a windshield mount or a cup holder or basically any place secure, the app is able to measure 0-60 mph times and can also measure forward and lateral G-forces.

If you don’t have a BMW car, don’t fret because the app isn’t picky. Although it is branded with the BMW M badge, the app works on basically any car, as long as you have an iPhone or a Touch.

Like BMW’s previous app, the M Power app is free and is available for download in the  iTunes App Store.

Flixter acquires Rotten Tomatoes

As both being movie review Web sites, it’s not that hard to imagine this two going well together.

Flixter, a user-generated movie review Web site, has acquired Rotten Tomatoes from the IGN division of News Corp. The announcement was revealed in a statement released today.

Rotten Tomatoes, also a movie review Web site, has premium contents that include professional reviews from critics, trailer videos, and news.

Although the acquisition was made official today, rumors about it have been circling the blogosphere since December when Kara Swisher

The exact terms of the acquisition was not made public but equity definitely is one reason for the acquisition as New Corp. will be receiving a minority stake in Flixter.

Flixter, besides its Web site, also offers the most popular movie app for the iPhone and apps for Android, Palm Pre and Blackberry.

Google Voice still up to battle

Apple may have famously rejected their Google Voice service, but the Web giant isn’t ready to give up the fight just yet.

The app, which allows users to manage all calls from a single number, was supposedly blocked because AT&T felt threatened on their profits on calling plans. The wireless company, however, flatly denies any involvement.

According to the New York Times article, an iPhone Web app for the Google Voice is now being developed. This Web app contains all the functionality that the iPhone app has with the difference being that this will be accessed in the mobile Safari browser. It will still behave like an iPhone app though, even allowing users to install an icon on their home screen.

So the next question could be: Will Apple still reject the Web app?

Hmmmn, that won’t probably be the best idea considering the talk it generated when they first rejected Google’s app which turned the people, not to mention the FCC’s attention, to the vagueness and inconsistency of their approval standards.

Apple did allow Google to have a Latitude Web app after it was rejected from their App store, so chances are, this is a battle Google will win – or at least draw – with Apple.
