Now that we have the winners of the QuickPix renaming contest, it’s time to start handing out the goods. Yes, that’s plural – winners. Special thanks to Glyn @ iphoneography.com for pointing out that not only did @oniontears inspire the name, but a blog comment from mooziqu actually nailed it.
In any case, we promised to gift out 50 of our favorite iOs apps to the winner, and we intend to do just that. Only difference is now two people will be getting the gifts instead of just one.
We had some trouble coming up with 50 favorites all on our own, so we enlisted the help of some of the most popular bloggers we know. TechNMarketing, LifeInLoFi, and AppAdvice were kind enough to provide us with a load of suggestions. Thanks so much!
We’re going to dole out the goods in batches of 5 apps each. Here are our first 5 picks:
1: ProHDR. So much better than the built-in HDR feature of the standard camera. If you find yourself in challenging light situations (strong backlight, etc), this app will make you look like an absolute pro. A must-have for iphoenographers.
2: AppAdvice. Simply the best app-discovery app anywhere. If you’re wondering what cool apps to get, or want detailed reviews from iPhone pros on just about any app, this is the app to have.
3: 360 Panorama. We love this app. Simply spin yourself around in a circle after pressing the capture button and 360 stitches together an awesome panorama. The embedded viewer takes advantage of the gyro in your phone to really make your pano come to life. No other panorama app comes close.
4: FX Photo Studio. Think of it as Photoshop Lite for your iPhone. Awesome array of effects, filters and editing tools to quickly enhance your photos before sharing them off to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or by email.
5: Fahrenheit. In case you haven’t noticed, Apple’s built-in weather app just stinks. Fahrenheit is one of the best weather apps out there, and has the really cool added bonus of showing you the current temperature right on your home screen without opening the app.
That’s it for this installment. Stay tuned for the next batch of our favorite iPhone / iOS apps we’re gifting to the winners of the QuickPix rename contest. Thanks for all your support!
