Fast Camera By i4software iPhone Review

20130219-103856.jpg
Fast Camera is a very user friendly app where you can take a high number of photos very quickly. How many times have you asked someone at a restaurant to take a picture of your family only to find out the picture was terrible? You can interrupt the random photo taker again, or just delete the photo and try again next family reunion. Why don’t we just avoid the issue all together and download this fantastic camera app!

Here’s how easy it is to end up with the most memorable photos no matter the situation. When you first open Fast Camera your screen is already taking pictures for you, that way you don’t miss that crazy lightning strike or meteor shower. All you have to do is push the start button to begin taking pictures, and hit the stop button when you want to stop. At the top you have a settings button, light options, front or rear camera, and a plus+ sign for some tutorials and info. You’ll see how many pictures are being taken at the bottom left as it increases, and you can hit that or push the review button to view your compiled photos. What I love about the review page is the fact that none of the pictures taken have been saved to your camera roll until you say so. From here you can select which photos to preview, delete, or save to your iPhone. You can also save to Cinemagram, or even turn those photos into a video. You might be saying to yourself why wouldn’t I just use my normal camera app to take a video? See how long it takes with your normal camera app to take that cute picture of your dog, then switch over to video to start recording. Yeah, much easier to use Fast Camera instead.

That’s as deep as the app gets, but you also have some great setting features at your fingertips. Inside the settings options is where you can decide how your Fast Camera works. You can change the delay between pictures from a 1/10 of a second all the way up to five minutes, if your capturing the movement of a turtle. I recommend turning on folders which separates the photos taken each time you start and stop taking pictures. Along the same lines you can also set the maximum number of photos Fast Camera will take, otherwise you’ll be stuck searching through a thousand pictures. There’s a few other features, but the last one I’ll cover is the timer. It’s tough enough taking a good picture with your phone, it’s even harder to try and set a timer and run as fast as you can before your picture is taken. You have four timer options 3, 5, 10, or 30 seconds. This is a nice feature so you can stand next to your friends and take a bunch of serious and goofy pictures and be done with it. You know what I’m talking about ladies, “I don’t like the way I look, we have to do it again!”

Overall Fast Camera is one of those apps that I’ll probably keep on my iPhone for awhile as it’s useful and glitch free so far. The only thing missing is the option to zoom, but lets be honest zooming in at all kills the quality. i4software has a good amount of apps in the App Store, and they seem to appeal to iPhone users with decent ratings. Thanks for finding this app for me dad!

We would love to hear if you downloaded the app and what you thought of it, leave us a comment below!

Snapguide By Heavy Bits iPhone Review

20130116-101959.jpg

Have you ever had trouble getting ink off your skin, wanted to make an iPhone speaker, or wanted to make homemade Cheez-its? Well maybe not those things, but I’m sure there’s a lot of things you thought about making but didn’t know how or thought possible. Now you’ve been given that opportunity for free with Snapguide for your iPhone. Sure the Internet is loaded with anything you want to learn, but wouldn’t it be nice to find all the how-to’s in one place? Here’s how it works. Scroll through a beautiful list of featured, categorized, popular, or recent guides. You also have the option to search for something specific like, fix a slow iPhone home button. Once you find something interesting you can click on the guide, view the supplies tab, and swipe sideways to see step by step directions. While viewing a guide you can click the like button, or use the jump to option to select a specific step with ease. Each page can contain text directions, pictures, as well as videos. Once you reach the final step you can follow the guide creator, share on social media, or leave a comment. Comments are crucial as anyone can create a guide, so it’s good to know in advance if you’re wasting your time. The views of each step are clear and easy to read, making it real hard to mess up.

So I’ve told you how to find guides to try, what about creating your own guide to share? All you have to do is click the orange create button, type your guide name, and you’re ready to rock. Next you can add supply quantities like 2 cups of sugar and a 1/2 cup of milk. After that all you have to do is create as many steps as you need easily dropping in text, photos, and video. Once your guide is complete, add a featured image for your cover, choose a topic, and click publish. Maybe add a step between choose a topic and publish to go back and make sure everything is correct.

When the Internet first came to be, people began filling it with information for others to find. Same thing goes for Snapguide which came out in February 2012, so the more people you share this review with, the more guides will be created. There’s no doubt in my mind Snapguide will become a big hit. It’s useful, everyone is sharing, and it’s put together perfectly!
