Best new Android and iPhone apps (June 30th - July 6th)
So, we've got some interesting apps for the two most popular platforms this week and, surprisingly, very few of them have anything to do with photo editing. Delve in and let us know which ones you liked!
New for iOS
Amazon Cloud Drive
An app that connects your iPhone and iPad to the Amazon cloud service, in case you are – or are planning to – use it. With the product being online since 2011, we'd say that such an app has been a long time coming.
This little app lets you turn web articles into .pdf files, which you can store, share, manipulate, and print. The app supports a large number of various size standards, among which A1, A2, A3, A4, B0, B1, B2, B3, B4, C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, Japanese B0, Japanese B1, Japanese B2.
Pic Ninja is a photo editing app, which gives the user a wide variety of filters and masks to choose from, and a generous amount of adjustment sliders to tinker with. It should definitely make its way to the phones of those that consider themselves serious about mobile photography, if only just for a test. The current price is $0.99, though, the developer claims that this is a special launch price, so if you are eyeing this app – make your move soon.
There are plenty of social media services out there for you to share your pictures on. Not all of them accept photos that are not a perfect square, though. Sure, sometimes, you can crop a square off of your picture, but at other times – you do not wish to cut anything off. Square Size will add empty spaces at both sides of the photo you are working on, turning it into a 1:1 block. There you go – Instagram-ready!
For those of you who aspire to get better at taking photos, but are still a bit hazy on where to start – Capturing Landscapes is an interactive manual, which will give you detailed photo information and guide you to taking great landscape shots.
New for Android
Solid Explorer is a pretty powerful app, drawn in beautiful material design. It offers deep customization, for what it is, and aggregates all of your clouds in one place. From this app, you can have access to your phone's internal storage, SD card, your Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, and MediaFire accounts. You can try it for free for 14 days, after which a paid unlock ($1.99) is required.
Inputting+ seeks to put Undo, Redo, Find and Replace functions closer to your fingertips. The app places a floating bubble on-screen when the user starts typing. Tap on that bubble and a transparent menu opens. It is in this menu that one can access the Undo, Redo, and Search.
The app is still a bit rough around the edges, as it's in beta, though, if you do a lot of typing on an Android phone or tablet, we'd say you should keep an eye on it.
Swappa is a service, which helps users buy and sell 2nd hand smartphones. Installing this app on your handset will let you know how much your model is currently going for, possibly helping you plan a sale, if you have decided to switch. It's worth a look.
