KitCam and PhotoForge have long been favorite apps of many iPhone photographers – sadly these apps are no longer available or at least currently available in the Apple App store as Yahoo! has acquired the developers – GhostBird.
Ever since Flickr upgraded their photo sharing site they’ve been on the look out to offer more, they were seriously lacking in the photo editing space and by picking up PhotoForge they can fill that niche very nicely. KitCam too is/was a fabulous filter app, so it looks like the entire GhostBird portfolio and their team have been gobbled up. We have requested additional information and at soon as that’s forthcoming we’ll let you know!
If you’re still running KitCam and PhotoForge on your device, bear in mind that if you delete it now, you will not be able to reload it. Also, of course, you cannot make any additional in-app purchases or receive any customer support – but we’ll keep you informed on all of this.
