An iOS 8 update for powerful photo app Fragment brings Handoff support and more
Photo apps of all kind are definitely taking advantage of new iOS 8 features. That includes Fragment, which just moved up to version 1.4.1.
Easily the coolest feature in the new version is Handoff support. That allows users to start editing a photo on their iPhone and then continue the process on the larger screen of an iPad.
Here’s a quick video that shows how Handoff works. Click here if you can’t see it.
And with the app extension, photographers can add a Fragment edit using just the stock Photos app.
Finally, a Notification Center widget will showcase what others have done with the app. It will be updated daily.
Fragment, a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, can be downloaded now on the App Store for $1.99.
Originally landing late last year, the app allows users to create prismatic works of art with their images. For more information on how it works, read our original review. It was also named as our AppAdvice App of the Week shortly after its release.
Developer Pixite is also taking advantage of the new app bundle feature in iOS 8. For $7.99, buyers can snag five popular photo editing apps – Fragment, Union, Matter, Tangent, and LoryStripes.
