Track and follow earthquakes, paint with light, and get full control over how you capture your photos with today’s collection of apps.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.

iPhone:

Tadaa SLR ($3.99 → Free, 27.4 MB): Take fantastic SLR-quality photos with Tadaa SLR. It’s designed for those who want to put their subject in focus.

Tadaa SLR does most of the heavy lifting for you, but it includes a handful of powerful editing features that will please even the most seasoned iPhoneographers. After taking your photo you’re able to apply a mask to your subject manually or have Tadaa SLR detect the edges automatically. The aperture, highlight and gloss levels, and range of your blur effect can be adjusted via sliders. Circular, linear, and complete blur options are available as well. With your subject fully in focus and background blurred out, go ahead and add some filters before sharing it.

DealDash ($1.99 → Free, 52.5 MB): Score great deals on everything from the latest tech products to household goods with DealDash. It provides a fun way to shop thriftily.

DealDash isn’t like other auction sites in the sense that the price isn’t set by the seller. Instead, bids cost $0.60 each and can be purchased in packs. Each auction starts at $0 with only 10 seconds on the clock. Each bid raises the price by $0.01 and resets the timer. When the timer hits zero, the last bidder is the winner and they get to purchase the item for the final price. Every single purchase includes free shipping.

DealDash is available for free today only (09/03). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 496 ratings.
