This week saw some new photography-based apps for your smartphone camera capabilities expand and can do to save the backup, and sharing photos easy. We discover an older Android app that is infinitely useful if you own a Qi Wireless Power Back Cover for S3.
Dropbox is an online storage rapidly transforming into a multi-app cloud platform, and nothing makes that more evident than the fact that Dropbox acquired Loom, a popular cloud storage app for photos this week. Will loom users are offered the same amount of storage space on Dropbox, and one would assume some of its features will eventually be built into the next version of Carousel - Dropbox new cloud photo app for iOS and Android that only one was released a few days ago - which is even better than it already is.
However, the current iteration of the Carousel is already pretty elegant. Carousel, like Apple's iCloud or Google store documents that automatically backs up your photos in your Dropbox cloud account.
The free app is probably aimed at persuading Dropbox users on the free level, they are a bit more (paid) storage use, and because Carousel is so airy and graceful to use this strategy makes a lot of sense.
Carousel offers an infinite scroll view your gallery, organized by time and place. But instead of, for example, Apple's zoomed out and untidy look year-over-year view Carrousel has a convenient scroll wheel on the bottom that allows you to easily flow through decades of images that have a normal (not small) thumbnail size .
Sharing is also easy, and while Dropbox is the emphasis on network drives users with private messages, you can quickly send photos to anyone. All images are local cache while browsing, so there's no waiting for things to load from the cloud while surfing, and backups in the cloud is full resolution. You can ask for in a zip file to local storage too. Copies of all your photo / video library
Google camera is actually an updated version of Nexus Android Qi wireless charging pad for every Android device running KitKat (4.4) or later. It greatly expands the capabilities of your camera by some software tricks, and - like most "pure Android" Google software - will probably feel less cluttered, easier and more fluid than the manufacturer's camera app.
The coolest thing about Google camera (besides the fact that it is a great camera button, so many seek and exact location of the thumb is not necessary!) Is Lens Blur feature.
Traditionally smartphone camera decent pictures for daily use taken, but the finished products were always easily recognizable as a (cheap) digital camera - all in the picture is in relative focus, and nothing 'pops', whatever Instagram filter you to set up.
This is because most smartphone camera lenses are necessarily small and simple compared to SLR cameras (SLRs) or their digital counterparts (DSLR) cameras with big lenses and big and strong adjustable vents - you know, they look like "real" camera.
Google's Camera app has figured out how images look like they were created by a DSLR with a software trick that will work to do. Every Android smartphone camera This allows you, for example, take a photo with a shallow depth of field.
Finally, here is an older app that does one thing but does it well. For anyone who has an Android smartphone, but a Mac computer, you are probably very familiar with the connection problems (especially if you have a Samsung), which is built into both sides of the Apple / Android hole.
They just usually do not play nice together.
It is usually given a lousy job on Mac and Android to work at any job, but not to control iTunes on your computer from your Android smartphone thanks to reset along iTunes remote app.
Time alignment is free and refreshingly easy to set up. But make sure iTunes on your Mac in share mode on your WiFi (I keep an old connected home theater system), connect your Android and Mac together, and voila! You have a fully functional, easy to use mobile interface to your iTunes - directly on your Qi wireless charging transmitter plate or smartphone.
