KickStarter – Pictar Pro | DSLR Your Smartphone

Share

We’re always interested to learn about innovative mobile photography projects and this one from Miggo sounds particuarly interesting. They’ve developed a product, called the Pictar Pro that bridges the gap between a phone’s power and camera’s usability with a wide set of physical controls and software features. The cherry on top is the phenomenal user experience: a pleasure-to-touch polished metal grip and an unmatched front-loaded intuitive user interface.

There’s a feature that particularly interests me, that’s the Pictar Pro Viewfinder. If you’re used to looking through camera viewfinders, or just find your smartphone screen too hard to see in bright light, then this could offer a great solution.

The Picture Pro has been designed to work with all smartphones, both Apple and Android, it’s an interesting concept. Their initial goal on Kickstarter was £19,074 but they have by far exceeded that with £142,135 pledged (at the time of writing) and with 36 days still to go.

You can learn more about this project here.

OnePlus moves into the mainstream with new carrier and retailer partnerships ahead of the launch of the OnePlus 6T

Share

Today, OnePlus announces new partnerships with some of the UK’s most trusted networks and biggest retailers ahead of the OnePlus 6T launch on 30th October. Mobile operators EE and Vodafone will join our current successful partner, O2, in offering OnePlus devices, while retailers John Lewis and Carphone Warehouse will also be stocking the highly anticipated OnePlus 6T, alongside mobile distributor DataSelect.

Pete Lau, CEO and Founder of OnePlus said: “Our dream is to give people a burdenless experience –  intuitive and powerful, combining style and versatility. The OnePlus experience begins long before someone uses our device – it’s in our community and through our partners. We’re constantly working to give people more options to enjoy OnePlus products, so we’re excited by our new partners in the UK.”

A Counterpoint research report highlighted how OnePlus has grown to be a Top 4 premium smartphone brand in the UK, and across Western Europe. OnePlus has a strong community in the UK, where there are over 1.5 million active forum members, making the UK forums the 3rd largest globally. The OnePlus 6 launch and pop-up events in London saw over 1,000 people queue up to see the device unveiled live.

Earlier this year OnePlus launched OnePlus 6, its fastest selling device ever, with over 1 million devices sold in just 22 days. This follows a revenue growth in 2017 that was double that of 2016 and recently the brand was identified as one of the top four premium smartphone brands in the UK.

OnePlus will launch its next device, the OnePlus 6T, on 30th October in New York.

Mobile Photography / Art – Saturday Poetry – “The Mothering Blackness” Maya Angelou with @findflorentine

Share

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘The Mothering Blackness’ by Maya Angelou. With a firm root in African American history, many of Angelou’s poems, such as this one, can be traced to the work songs slaves sang. The repeating lines give the sense of a refrain, and varying line lengths and numbers of syllables give an improvised feel. Songs passed down orally, such as work songs, are often narratives: this poem tells the story of a girl running back to “the mothering blackness.” The regularly indented lines also give the impression that at least two voices are speaking, which would have been the case in work songs that were almost always sung by a collective.

I have matched art work entitled ‘4 ma friends‘ by @findflorentine – yefri with this poem. You can view and follow her on Instagram here.

If you would like to be featured in our Saturday Poetry section, please ensure you include the hashtag #theappwhisperer to any images posted to Instagram. This will mean we will be able to consider it.
