KitCam – Updated With New Lenses, New Films and More…

KitCam from the developers of Photoforge has really hit the ground running and has been snapped up by many, it orginially knocked Camera+ from it’s top stop in the US Photography app store but it’s not sitting very comfortably at second place.

KitCam has received a great new update with tons of stuff for Christmas. You’ll find two new lenses (Accent & Kurt). The Accent lens is a more subtle alternative to the other two vignette lenses. The vignette itself is soft even at its most intense and adds a subtle soft light accent to the centre. As with the other vignettes, pinch the screen to control its intensity.
 The Kurt lens is all about grunge and creates photos with grungy, grimy edges. Twist the screen with two fingers to cycle through all the variations.

There’s also two new films (Walker & Walker Alternative) – These two frames are described as ‘Ansel’ frames but with sharp inner corners and no edge shadow. Perfect simplicity in black & white.

There’s a host of other new additions including Send to KitCam, auto lens, film & frame tags. Ability to show the zoom control and lots of other bug fixes, tweaks and speed improvements.

This is a free update, if you have previously downloaded this app. If not, you can download it here. It retails for $1.99/£1.49.




Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
