Daily iOS App Updates

Daily iOS App Digest – 02/07/11


Latest apps and updates to hit the iTunes store today…

TiltShift Video


Available for $1.99 on the App Store, the TiltShift Video app allows the users to process their videos with the tilt-shift effect, giving a miniature look to them. Until now, tilt-shift videos required very expensive DSLR lens or a professional video editing software to edit the videos and simulate the effect. In both cases, a good deal of patience was necessary. TiltShift Video removes all those requirements by providing the necessary tools to simulate the effect with an easy and intuitive user interface.

With just a few steps, the app allows to adjust several settings, including playback speed, image saturation, contrast, brightness, vignetting, start and end titles, fades, soundtrack… The blur adjustment controls deserve a special mention: in addition to provide the possibility of configuring the blur strength and the smoothness of the transition between blurred and non-blurred areas, the app provides multi-touch controls that offer a lot of freedom when defining the blurred sections.
