The KickLight is a $ 180 LED lamp for your iPhone. I hear you. “WHAT?!” you shout, in justifiable ALL CAPS. You even combine a question mark and an exclamation mark to further express your angered confusion. To which I can only say CALM DOWN. It’s actually worth the money.
The lamp has a few clever features that mark it apart from the usual smartphone [Read More...]
The iPhone has become just as much a camera as a communication device. So if you love using your iPhone and want to take advantage of its ability to take great photos then Cult of Mac has a video course for you â€“ and at the low price of only $ 19 for a limited time.

LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – The truth of the matter is that there’s just no way to have a telescopic lens phallically jutting out of the back of your iPad in a way that Jony Ive’s sense of dignity in design would approve of. Props to Polaroid, then, for not even trying, instead going a more playful route with their brand new [Read More...]
What’s in a name? If you’re Nick Cool, then it’s THE TRUTH. And Nick’s cool photo hack totally proves it.
One day, it seems that Nick was staring at his sink, perhaps in a fuzzy daze as he waited for his coffee to brew. His eyes presumably were drawn, like all kitchen detritus, towards the filthy plughole.
Most of us would see a future chore, to be added to the long list of other things we’ll put off until somebody [Read More...]
It’s about time.

Like the iPad app, 500px for iPhone sports a clean black and white user interface that lets you enjoy [Read More...]

So if youâ€™re looking to get some superior shooting, then learning how to use a DSLR camera is a must. And for those who already have a DSLR camera, [Read More...]
My scary pixel avatar, etched.
Etchings is an iPhone photography app which takes your pictures and turns them into very realistic etchings. Or fake etchings, I guess. Whatever you call them, if you pick the right source pic then you’ll end up with something that looks as if you lacquered your own metal plate, etched it, dropped it into an acid bath, washed and dried it, inked it up and ran [Read More...]
This plant was reflected in a silver book cover, rotated and then tweaked in Snapseed
One of the best things about using an iPhone to shoot your photos is the huge range of accessories you can buy to help out. But what if you’re on a budget? Or you just aren’t really into photography enough to spend more money? Or if you’re just bored today and feel like playing around?
Then you’re in [Read More...]
Newly launched at SXSW this week is Picle, a free iOS photography app with a twist: the aim is to make something that sounds like Instagram. It’s a lovely idea but the initial release suffers a few disappointing problems. Picle is so named because that’s the term given to the image+sound moments it records.
