This is a very interesting read for those who are not fully aware of the highs and lows of app development. Casey Newton of The Verge has published this very honest account of app developer, Pixite, one that we are all very familar with here at TheAppWhisperer, as they are the developers of eight photo editing apps, including Assembly, Fragment, Matter, LoryStripes and more.
If you were lucky enough to have received a promotional code from our giveaway yesterday for FSN Pro, or perhaps you purchased this brand new app for yourself, we thought we would publish a few tutorials, directly from the developer, to help you get started. You will find two tutorials in this post, one on Getting Started and the other on Importing Images. More will follow.
Last week Bobbi (our editor for this APPart column) published a brief overview of Glitché app, if you missed that please go here. She also promised a more in-depth tutorial and today has delivered. Please enjoy this (foreword by Joanne Carter).
“If you’ve ever looked at my artwork, you know that I create with extensive layering. While I’m not a fan of “push-button” art, i.e.: apply an effect and your done, I do like “specialty apps” to create images that can be layered into my work. For me, Glitché is just that kind of app. Glitché caught my eye because of it’s ability to create a sort of wireframe overlay of any given image and export the result as a high resolution image. The basic app is reasonably priced at $.99/£0.79, although to get the high-res option, you are required to make an in-app purchase of $2.99/£1.99.
Glitché has 26 presets, each with similar variations that can be applied. I could find no built-in instructions or tutorials, but its interface is pretty intuitive. Unfortunately, there is no “undo” in this app, which makes for laborious and cumbersome experimentation”.
“Provoke Camera was inspired by Japanese photographers of the late 1960’s like Daido Moriyama, Takuma Nakahira and Yutaka Takanashi…
Simple, elegant and easy to use, Provoke Camera does just one thing, produce black and white images with that gritty, grainy, blurry look reminiscent of the “Provoke” era of photography, and in two great formats; square format 126 and 35mm format 135“. It has recently been updated and we have been given some codes to share with our loyal readers.
