Today's Best Apps: VividHDR And As Noted

August 4, 2013
he App Store takes delivery of hundreds of new apps per day. The overwhelming scene makes it possible to easily overlook an exciting game, valuable productivity suite, etc. However, we have a solution. Today’s Best Apps tackles this problem by providing you with a handpicked and tested list of apps that are truly worth your consideration each and everyday. Remember: Even though in-app purchases typically require your iTunes Store password for processing, you can further prevent them and other unauthorized actions by enabling local restrictions using the passcode locked iOS parental controls


vividHDR by Ittiam Systems (Pvt) Ltd ($1.99, 10.2 MB): Capture the true vibrance of moments using this HDR-focused camera app. A convenience lacking thus far in iOS, vividHDR's first notable feature is side-by-side comparisons. Rather than flicking back and forth between the original and improved versions to decide which you prefer, both are shown simultaneously, providing a far easier means of recognizing the differences. Moving forward, the next feature is processing adjustment. Instead of a single set merging exposures, you have a choice among three levels of brightness and contrast: natural, dramatic, or lively. As for the final step, sharing, there are option of sending the photo through email, sharing via Flickr or Twitter, and uploading to Dropbox.

As Noted by B-App (Free, 2.0 MB): This simple note-taking app allows you to easily log, update, and share, if desired, everything from a personal diary and task lists to field notes and outlines. A minimalist flat user interface with global page zoom provides great visibility and necessary functionality, including a drop down menu at the top for entering other notebooks and utilizing filters plus semi-retractable toolbars pinned on the right. Regarding content, pages may include a title, headers, standard text, bullet and numbered lists, images, tags, and attached links to files. Tags as well as the ability to bookmark offer additional ways for locating information. Last, but certainly not least, the app features automatic backup and synchronization through Dropbox alongside sharing via email. The sync not only works to keep information up-to-date among iDevices, but also available on desktops and laptops using a Chrome extension.
