Photo Editing Live on Camera, Picture Vintage Effects, Filters - ArtInLight by Imagination Unlimited (Free, 6.5 MB): There's no wasting time performing post-capture enhancements with this live editing camera app because what you see is what you get. Applied and modified in real-time, the 26 lens filters are switched by swiping horizontally whereas the 15 mask effects, including vignette, as well as aspect ratio, contrast, saturation, and brightness are selectable via the lower toolbar. Alternatively, the filters can be viewed and chosen through a Photo Booth-style live preview gridded galleries, accessible by tapping the triple circles in the bottom-right. The app also features six pastel UI color schemes plus iOS camera roll integration, which allows quick reviewing and sharing.
Tynker - Learn programming with visual code blocks by Tynker (Free, 28.0 MB): Thanks to this cartoony procedural puzzler, learning how to create a game as just as fun as playing one. Presented in an animated story fashion, each stage consists of a scene that must be properly programmed using code stamped jigsaw-style pieces. For example, in the first episode, one of the problems is to successfully direct a puppy over three hazard cones to a clothing item, which will require the jump and run commands and likely a loop or more. If the program is run and the code snippets are mistakenly arranged, you're assisted with a tip. Once correct, you'll be graded based upon how many attempts were made. As you progress, the situations become more complex, although, the lessons introduce more efficient means to complete the tasks. The app features hand-drawn 2.5-D graphics, charming music, single finger control, tri-star rating system, plus 140 stages spanning three episodes covering basic, more advanced, and drawing code and methods. The Puppy Adventure is available for free, however, Lost in Space and Sketch Racer cost $1.99 each or $2.99 as a bundle.
