Shift – New iPhone Photography App Now Available! We Have Codes To Giveaway!

Shift by Pixite apps, developers of popular photo apps including Tangent, Fragment and Union is now available in the Apple App Store.  Shift is all about filters and lets you create your own personal photo filters with one tap of a button.  Start by loading a photo and pressing the Shuffle button. Shift intelligently combines textures, colors, and blends to produce stylish effects like vintage colors, grit and grunge, light leaks, and high contrast black and whites. Each shuffle is a unique mixture of effects that you can customize to your liking.

Adjust the color or intensity of the effect using the slider controls. Drag or pinch the screen to position and resize the entire filter.  For fine-grained control, drag the three touch points to different positions on the screen to explore a more spread out or focused combination of effects. When you are finished fine-tuning your filter, tap the Star to save it to your filter library for future use.

Shift retails for $0.99/£0.69 and you can download it here but we have been given a few codes to share with our loyal readers. If you would like to be in with a chance to win a promo code for Shift, all we ask is for you to reply to this post telling us what you love most about (we know how hard it is to narrow it down to one thing and also retweet or FB this post). That’s it, we’ll enter your details into our magic hat and if you’re a winner, a code will soon be sitting in your inbox.

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. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.
