Smartphones aren’t just useful for casual photos, but they’re adept at shooting videos too. However, unlike filters and special effects you can add while taking photos, the options have been fairly limited while recording video. A new free iOS app from Netomat called Spotliter, however, lets you apply “touch effects and filters” to your videos.Made for iPhone and iPod Touch, users can magnify a portion of a scene, freeze a part of the video, switch between front and back cameras, overlay an image on top of a video, turn an object from black and white to color, and add other effects, all by pinching, tapping, swiping, or sliding your fingers on the screen during recording. Netomat says Spotliter is the first video app of its kind.“Our goal for Spotliter was to make a video camera app that offered powerful, sophisticated effects yet was very simple and intuitive to use,” said Netomat CEO and cofounder Kris Ramanathann. “We wanted the user’s … [Read more...] about Spotliter for iPhone applies fun effects and filters to videos while recording

Manually combing photographs in an image editor to create panoramas, let alone 360-degree panoramas, can be a taxing task. Luckily, 360 Panorama from Occipital skips the time-consuming photo-stitching process: instead of taking multiple still shots and stitching them together, the app builds the image in real-time using an advanced system similar to video, resulting in a smooth final image. 360 Panorama additionally offers a stereographic display mode, allowing you to see your curved panorama laid flat (much like an inverse globe).Once you launch the app, tap the screen to start the process. Stand as still as possible and slowly pan the camera in any direction. You can pan the camera up and down or from side to side (slow, clean sweeps provide the best results), while a real-time feed with image stabilization grid on your screen keeps you aware of what the app is capturing.Tap done to preview your finished panorama. The app will tell you how long it took to record, as well as let … [Read more...] about 360 Panorama for iPhone

It's still unclear exactly what Apple has in store for its next iPhone. But T-Mobile customers on the carrier's Jump OnDemand leasing program at least know exactly what they'll pay for the next iPhone: exactly what they're paying right now for an iPhone 6.Jump OnDemand program it announced last month to lock-in the monthly leasing price for iPhone upgrades. As part of Jump OnDemand, T-Mobile introduced a $15-a-month price for the iPhone 6 with the ability to upgrade to a new phone up to three times a year. In an occasionally profane video announcement today (July 28), T-Mobile CEO John Legere said that any Jump OnDemand iPhone subscribers would be able to trade-in their iPhone 6 for the next iPhone by the end of the year and keep that same $15 monthly payment on their device.

Mobile video editing just got better. Adobe today announced a new app for iPhones and iPads called Premiere Clip, which brings a distilled version of its desktop Adobe Premier video editor to iOS users. The free app requires iOS 7 and up to run.As with most of the company's offerings, you'll need an Adobe ID to use Premiere Clip, which facilitates syncing between all Adobe programs you've signed into. The biggest benefit of this is that the changes and progress you've made on your phone or tablet will be saved in the cloud, so you can pick up where you left off when you go to the desktop version (Premiere Pro). The app currently doesn't appear to offer syncing to Premiere Elements, the cheaper consumer desktop version of Premiere.

Editor's note: This article was updated on August 15, 2017 with up-to-date app links and pricing information. Apple believes that apps are the future of television, and maybe they’re right: The Apple TV’s selection of apps and games is ever expanding, and you can tap into a wide array of streaming services and traditional network apps with ease. It makes cutting the cord seem even easier than ever, and cable and satellite subscribers see a lot of added benefits too.But at $149 for the base 32GB model, the Apple TV requires a solid upfront investment to dig into this app-centric TV vision that Apple is promoting—particularly since a lot of other devices large and small can access many of those same services. That might be worth the expense for some, but not everyone needs another way to run apps and games.What about the Chromecast, then? Google’s tiny dongle might seem like an ideal Android accessory, given its heritage, but it also works with iPhone and has … [Read more...] about Is the $35 Chromecast a viable Apple TV alternative for iPhone users?
