As a professional photographer, I’m drawn to photo-inspired apps. In the case of fotobookr, even if I didn’t have a bag full of lenses, I would still want this app for its simple and intuitive interface. The fact that it displays 192 of the most current photographs from my Facebook friends in a neat, organized manner is both interesting and useful. Simplicity, in this instance, is bliss.

Sometimes uploading one picture to Facebook just isn’t enough. You have those moments where adding a group of photos would be so much better in helping tell the true story of your epic party from last night. Luckily, you don’t have to be stuck with single photos anymore as uploading a batch of photos and video to Facebook is much easier with iLoader 2, which takes the tedious uploading process and makes it fun and easier than ever.
iLoader 2 makes viewing your and your friends’ photos and videos fun and totally addicting. With options that allow you to view photos as a slideshow, trim videos before loading, and continue loading after clicking out of the app, sharing photos is enjoyable and saves you time.
Sure, digital images look impressive on the iPhone and iPad and yes I love the storage capabilities, but for me, there is nothing better than a good old fashioned print on the fridge or in an album. Helloalbums, by Conry Print, makes photo enthusiasts can share, print and ship photo alum’s directly from their iPad.
Helloalbums allows the user to share, print and ship a professionally printed photo book directly from their ipad. We love snapping pictures and using apps such as Instagram, but rarely do these photos leave our iPhones or Facebook. Helloalbums inspires the user to create fresh styled photo books with 8-10 photos. Share socially or order a professionally printed book treasuring your moments in paper.
The user can import photos from leading photography apps and create an entire album or just a few pages to share, save and print later. It also has unique features such as swiping photos in and out. Print out a few pages and hang them on the fridge, make a gift bag out of them, you could even make a hand made card by printing out only a spread. There are lots of possibilities.
The Facebook iPad app is finally here and it was worth the wait. With high-res photos, games, chat and more, the iPad app offers the best of what we all wanted and better yet, the user doesn’t have to leave their spot on the news feed.
The user can simply navigate anywhere with a tap, slide or pinch to move from one screen to another. The app also allows them to play games on the go with access to all the popular apps and games for true mobility. Other features that were integrated include tap to zoom as well as updating or messaging without leaving the screen.
The Facebook iPad App has been confirmed. I was bit puzzled when Gizmodo’s Kwame Opam inked a story at about 4:07 pm PST about Facebook-iOS 5 integration and it no longer existing. Here’s the screenshot:
But what happened to the article? It’s all over the blogosphere that former Facebook developer Jeff Verkoeyen, who finished the Facebook iPad app months ago, was so frustrated with Facebook delaying the iPad app that he punched his last clock and left for Google.
Well, a second look at Gizmodo revealed that Mashable got the scoop and its speculation was correct in that the Facebook iPad app will indeed be revealed at the iPhone 5 launch event on Oct. 4. Hooray!
I’ve been testing out Banjo, the new social discovery app, over the past week. I must say, I’m quite impressed. In a nutshell, the free iPhone app allows you to “discover what you’re missing.” For example, open Banjo and see what’s happening with your friends or others in your local area… or Paris.
The beauty of it, you can check Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and Gowalla all from one app thanks to Banjo’s CEO Damien Patton. I recently interviewed Patton and because I’d rather cut all of my boring questions out, I’ve only uploaded his answers directly to the AppyHour.tv YouTube channel.
