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

    Apple's new iPad specific browsing UI.

    Apple updated it’s 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 Adobe’s 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.

      First of all, your assumption that everyone that frequents this site frequents the other site is wrong. Secondly, even if it wasn't wrong, your comment is way over the top. Third, your question about jailbreaking has nothing whatsoever to do with this post's topic.

      That worked! Thank you. I tried changing the version number before but didn't change the build version and I forgot to restart. This worked though. Thank you. Is there any risk associated with this?

      I spoke too soon! It will install but it still won't run.

      I tried changing the IPA to ZIP, editing the plist file.

      But once I ZIP again and change back to IPA, when i try to upload to iTunes, it says Not a valid IPA.

      Anyone?

      I had no trouble switching it back to an IPA but the plist looked weird for me.

      Do you know if the build version you mentioned above will work with the iPad 2?

      Yes, they are same, this method can't make iphoto work, other apps (like new version of imovie) that require ios 5.1 will work

      This and your other post would be considered off topic and rude. SHE (not he, username is Toothfairy ) was not referring to your post anyway. She was more than likely referring to the first comment on this article.

      Not the place for this. Venting any frustrations about the site should be posted in the site suggestions section. We will be happy to address any issues you have there.
      As for your question, also not the place. A little effort and searching could have allowed you to find the answer to that question. If unable to find it start a new thread in the appropriate section asking that question.
