The Guardian Eyewitness App – Updated – Removal of Subscription for Premium Feature

The Guardian Eyewitness app for iPad showcases the world’s most striking and beautiful photographs, providing a daily, visual reflection of global events.

The Guardian Eyewitness has been developed to offer a customised iPad experience, bringing thought-provoking imagery direct to your device on a daily basis.

Created by the same team that developed the Guardian iPhone app and the Guardian iPad edition, the app offers:

• Rolling access to the latest 100 images from our award-winning photography series – free
• Custom designed interface built specifically to take advantage of the iPad
• ‘Pro tips’ written by our award-winning photography team to offer technical insights
• Photographic EXIF data, when available
• View collections as a slideshow and thumbnails
• Ability to save photos as favourites and share them via email, Twitter and Facebook
• Pixel-perfect retina display images for new iPads
• Optional auto-renewable subscription for extra daily photographs

This update now includes the removal of Eyewitness Premium – this was an auto-renewable subscription for $1.99/£1.49 per month which allowed the user to access over 100 additional photographs. It’s now possible to view all of these for free and of course the app is free to download as well. This update also includes the addition of a new archive feature too.

So, if you haven’t picked up this app yet, we suggest you do it today. Click here to download/update.




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.

Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
