Say yes to these 2 IPhone Apps

I had a few minutes last night so I played with 2 new iPhone Apps and really enjoyed playing with them ... I ran the photo through Popsicolor first. That was where I spent the most time. There was so many cool choices as I tried to find the choice I liked best. After I decided I did some color & texture changing in DistressedFX.

These were really fun apps to play with and I highly recommend them. I also recently bought icolorama but haven't played with it yet. Maybe later.

What's still possible ....

... Taking indoor photos with my iPad.

I downloaded an app called "NightCap" to try to use my iPad for photos taken inside. It worked better than other camera apps that I tried.

A window into a new phase ....

I discovered an iPad app journal from Happy Tapper that I would like to play with for awhile ..... Gratitude for iPad.

(Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has—as opposed to, say, a consumer-oriented emphasis on what one wants or needs.)

It is pretty easy to use and is straight forward. I simply jot down my blessings of the day and add a few photos as a visual reminder of the day if I wish. Kinda fun for now and won't take too many minutes to update each day. There is the possibility of emailing your page or exporting as a .pdf. Worth a second look if you believe positive memories make positive attitudes.

Daring Myself

Today is day 1 of blogging about iPad/iPhone apps, photography and all things related. It should be an interesting adventure .... One that I look forward to undertaking. To start I plan to jot a few notes here a couple of times a week. To start I offer 2 random plays with photos and iPad apps.
