PostalPix Now Available for Android

PostalPix, the app that lets you order prints from your phone’s camera roll, is now available for Android. I reviewed PostalPix for the iPhone last month and found it to be an excellent and affordable way to get quality prints from your phone.

The print and shipping prices are more than fair, and the print quality is great. Now all you Android users have no excuse to miss out on physical prints for all your great instagram shots.

You can find PostalPix here on the Google Play Store.

Earlier this week, I shared a new app from Perfectly Clear that uses a De-Purple filter to effectively desaturate the purple flare and haze encountered on the iPhone 5.  Fotodiox has a hardware solution, the camHoodie, which is a lens hood for the iPhone 5, 4S and 4, as well as the iPad mini to cut down on lens flare before it ever enters your images.

GoPro Android App Now Available

It is currently compatible with Wi-Fi BacPac-enabled HERO2 cameras that have received the latest update from GoPro.  Compatibility with the HERO3: White and Silver Edition should be coming this month, and compatibility for the HERO3: Black Edition should be available in December 2012.

You can download the new app here at the Google Play Store.

Perfectly Clear iOS App Update Includes De-Purple Setting to Correct Purple iPhone 5 Lens Flare

Perfectly Clear

Perfectly Clear’s Version 3 of its iOS app is out and includes a software fix for the purple lens flare problem on the iPhone 5.

On its own, the Perfectly Clear app is a great little editing app for the iPhone that gives you solid results from a single click. It’s quite similar to the Awesomize feature in SmugMug’s Camera Awesome app – and for good reason . . . Camera Awesome’s Awesomize is powered by Perfectly Clear’s technology.

One of the things that sets Perfectly Clear’s app apart, however, is the one-click De-Purple setting that allows you to remove the oh-so-common purple lens flare from the iPhone 5 images.  In practice, it works quite well.  It’s just not spot-on every time as you can see in the images below.
