  • Apple Updates a Ton of Apps, But iPhoto for iPad Gets Royal Treatment

    Apple's new iPad specific browsing UI.

    Apple updated its line of native apps today including iWorks, Garageband and the iLife suite. But, the most impressive update might be the addition of iPhoto on the iPad.

    The iPad iPhoto app adds a ton of basic and not-so basic photo editing tools to the mix. The overhaul includes new gestures, multi-touch editing, and sending photos directly between devices.

    Browsing

    The app appears to be incredibly smart. By double-tapping single photo the app will compare that photo to others that look similar and automatically find them. Swiping down on a photo removes them from the comparison. The Smart Browsing allows users to compare multiple photos side-by-side, and do so in portrait or landscape modes.

    Editing Features




    The app supports photos up to 19-megapixels, and the features outside of auto-enhance can be tweaked with multi-touch editing. Users can simply click on any part of the image they want to change and drag up, down, left, or right to edit. This can change exposure, contrast, saturation and more. The app even has automatic horizon detection which can straighten out crooked backgrounds. by highlighting only certain areas to be affected by changes using finger-tip brushes.



    Users also have a plethora of new effect categorized into swatches and filters (black and white, vintage, aura, gradient, tilt shift, and watercolor). However, the potential power of finger-tip brushes offer users a competitive alternative to Adobes recently released touch-based Photoshop editing program. The brushes allow users to select a brush (repair, red eye, saturate, desaturate, lighten, darken, sharpen, soften) and zoom in anywhere to apply the selected brush. It effectively turns the photo into a canvas of photo-finishing potential.




    Sharing, and Social Features




    Also, users can add notes, geotags, and captions to their photos. All of these photos can be stored in Journals. These Journals can be customized by allowing users to make photos larger, smaller, and arrange them how they see fit. They can add, maps, dates, captions and weather details, all based on information stored in the photos. In looks like a personalized Pinterest photo-board.

    Users can flag the photos they like and easily share them via email, Flickr, Twitter, and other outlets as well as share entire Journals via iCloud. The ability to beam photos directly to other iOS devices running iPhoto is a nice addtion, but is restricted to devices on shared Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connections.

    Overall iPhone appears to be a welcome addition to the iOS iLife family, and a capable alternative to other photo-sharing and editing apps currently available. Get it now for $4.99 in the App Store.

      You staff members here are becoming lazier and slower.... The people at 5 to 7 mac already stated about these topics hours ago.... anyway, because you people have not even mentioned the topic yet, I will post my question here --- Does anyone know if it is safe to update to 5.1 by OTA with a jailbreak or do I have to restore using the ipsw?

      Updating OTA while jailbroken is very bad. Do not do it.

      Doubt there will be a jailbreak for 5.1 for some time though.

      @Indyracer05, Chpwn tweeted that it is not safe to do it OTA. You should update through iTunes and lose your jailbreak anyway. But apparently updating OTA messes something up, or even worse :/.

      If you edit the info.plist in the 5.1 apps they will work on 5.01 and lower.
      I have iMovie 1.3 working on my iPad 1 and iPhone both on 5.01 jailbreaked.

      This works for iMovie 1.30 and probably iPhoto (Staying on topic, iPhoto, new apps)

      Rename iMovie130.IPA to iMovie130.ZIP or iPhoto.IPA to iPhoto.ZIP
      UNZIP
      Open info.plist and edit the following;

      <key>DTPlatformVersion</key>
      <string>5.1</string>
      to
      <key>DTPlatformVersion</key>
      <string>5.0</string>
      and
      <key>DTSDKName</key>
      <string>iphoneos5.1</string>
      to
      <key>DTSDKName</key>
      <string>iphoneos5.0</string>

      Then remove the following;
      <key>UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities</key>
      <array>
      <string>armv7</string>
      </array>
      Save, ZIP, rename to IPA install via iTunes.

      If it doesn't install you missed something so go back and re-edit the info.plist file

      It will now install on any iDevice with IOS5 and above and it works on iPad1 and iPhone4 as thats all I've got to try it on.
