ShoeBox, an app that represents 1000memories' first foray into the Play Store, is an awesome digital photo organizer, "turning your Android device into a mobile photo scanner," and allowing for sophisticated organization, storage, and sharing of your treasured paper photos.
For those that can't exactly hold their device with machine precision when scanning old photos, ShoeBox offers edge detection and perspective correction, ensuring that your newly-digitized photos won't be distorted or misshapen.
ShoeBox also allows users to add tags, dates, and locations to photos and organize them into separate collections. While users can instantly share photos with services like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and others, the app also offers "private shoeboxes," which will stay separate from shareable images.
I want to start this post by saying, in no uncertain terms, I am just as sick and tired of the Galaxy S III rumors as everyone else - it really is getting out of hand. So, you can rest assured that I wouldn't be bringing this newest "leak" to your attention if I didn't think it had some merit. Here are the photos:
Now, we're pretty sure that the Galaxy S III is going to be model i9300. Given that Samsung's Kies software shows that model number, it's a fairly safe bet. If we take that as true, we're probably looking at a prototype / dummy shell for the international version of the Galaxy S III.
The extremely popular photo-sharing app Instagram, just days after hitting the Play Store, has received another update, this time bringing some pretty awesome changes.
Perhaps the most significant change the app's update to version 1.0.3 brings is compatibility for tablets and Wi-Fi handsets, meaning users can now share photos from all their Android devices with ease.
Besides the added compatibility, Instagram's latest update allows users to install the app to their SD card, thereby freeing up a little internal storage.
If you're one of the scads of new Android-using Instagram fans, or if you've been waiting to use the app on your Android-powered tablet, just hit the widget below and grab the update.
When it comes to rumors, the day before the press conference announcing a device often turns out to be the most reliable. Just such a rumor has landed today, in the form of a purported "press photo" of Sprint's EVO One (at least, that's the rumored name).
Now, I don't want to be a Debbie-downer here, but there are a few things that make this "press photo" look like less than the real McCoy (though I'm not outright calling it a fake - so read on).
First, there are the images flanking the supposed EVO One. These stock photos of the AT&T and T-Mobile One X and One S, respectively, have been available for over a month now.
In a tweet earlier today, Instagram linked to a new signup page which promises to put interested Android users at the front of the line when the popular photo app becomes available (which should be relatively soon).
Following the controversy surrounding a potentially leaked image of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy SIII, many were left (still) wondering just what Sammy's flagship would actually look like. Thickening the plot significantly, a Redditor has stepped up and posted what is claimed to be a real photo of the actual Galaxy SIII, provided by an employee of Samsung.
Just under an hour ago, the Redditor (using a throwaway or one-off account), posted the photo, claiming that the Samsung employee provided not only a photo, but some juicy details as well.
According to the source, the SIII currently has "two optional launchers," meaning users can choose to work with Samsung's TouchWiz overlay, or a stock ICS launcher.
Today's suspected Galaxy SIII leak caused quite a stir in the Android community, of course sparking concerns over validity, likelihood that Samsung would choose such a form factor for the upcoming flagship, and just when we may see the real thing up close. A great summary of the leak on Reddit, and the subsequent comment thread got me thinking, though: just how likely is it that the leak is real? In short the answer is a resounding "not very."
At first blush, the leak seems convincing - for starters, the shot in question has all the moire-patterning of a digital photo hurriedly snapped of a computer monitor, implying that whoever leaked the image didn't have time to save the file and risk being caught.
Building on the success of their cloud storage aggregator ZeroPC Cloud Navigator, ZeroDesktop introduced ZeroPC Photo Connect to Google's Play Store today. The app works on the same premise as its forebear, Photo Connect pulls together all your photos from popular storage services, ranging from Picasa to Facebook to Dropbox, Evernote, and Photobucket.
Besides offering access to your various photo storage services, Photo Connect brings photos together into a tiled "timeline" interface, allowing users to browse through photos from all sources at once, according to when they were uploaded. The app also automatically syncs with each service (if you allow it to), ensuring an up-to-date collection.
There's no shortage of camera apps in Google's Play Store, but every once in a while a new one hits that really wows us. That's the case with Photo 360° - a super sleek new app that lets you capture a full 360 degree view of your surroundings, items, yourself (using the front-facing camera on your device), or almost anything else you can imagine. Here's a quick look at how it works:
Pretty sick, no? Not only does the app allow you to catch some really rad photos, but it also includes the ability to capture sound along with the picture, as well.
