There's nothing quite like the iOS app VHS Camcorder, except for digging up some 30-year old tapes to see if they play. Thanks to Rarevision anyone with an iPhone can recreate VHS video complete with distorted audio, washed-out color and magnetic particle fallout. Developer Thomas Worth based the app on the same JVC GR-C1 camcorder used by Marty McFly in Back to the Future. This all-in-one VHS-C video camera was the first of its kind. So what does it take to record like it's 1984?
Lots of developers are updating their apps with 3D Touch features for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, but Yahoo has taken it one step further by updating their photo hosting app Flickr with what they're calling "3D Touch Extended". Flickr users can now perform Peek and Pop actions, and access a quick Home screen menu by using the 3D Touch technology found on their iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
One of the features Apple highlights on the iPhone 6s is Live Photos. While only the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus can capture Live Photos, any device running iOS 9 is capable of viewing these moving images. When it comes to the files, Live Photos are essentially a still accompanied by a short video recorded at 15 frames per second. Non-Apple devices and those running older versions of iOS will only see Live Photos as a normal still image. So what is the best way to share Live Photos and preserve their movement using iOS 9?
There are many third-party camera apps for iOS. While most users are happy with the stock iOS Camera app, developers can add many features to streamline the image capture process. Top Camera 2 from Lucky Clan revamps their long-running Top Camera app, and updates the interface for iOS 8 users. The new version integrates various shooting modes, filters, and editing functions for stills and video into one place.
Adobe has added to its list of iOS apps with yesterday's release of Photoshop Fix and Capture CC. Both are available on the App Store free of charge, giving iPhone and iPad photographers more options for creating the perfect image. When it comes to Capture CC, features found in several Adobe apps have been consolidated and the older apps will no longer be updated.
