App Bargain Bin
February 10, 2015

We’re putting your camera to use today with three fun photography apps. We also have an app that will help you get your work done faster so you can enjoy your time taking photos and recording videos.

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:

CameraBag 2 ($1.99 → Free, 13.6 MB): Stylize your favorite memories with this photo editing and filter app. It’s ideal for mobile photo editors.

It utilizes Nevercenter’s powerful Analog Engine to achieve unparalleled image quality even after filters have been applied. You’re able to import any photo from your library or snap a new one in-app. The slider across the bottom of the screen allows you to adjust the components of your photo. You can then apply 26 different borders, crop your photo by hand, and apply any one of the 16 built in filters. Loads of additional filters are available for free via CameraBag’s online style library. Your final creations can then by shared via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or email.

CameraBag 2 is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 152 ratings.

Universal:

AutoSampler – convert video clips into retro-looking photos! ($1.99 → Free, 9.5 MB): Create fantastic collages from your favorite videos with AutoSampler. It’s an entertaining app for those who embrace randomness.

AutoSampler is super simple yet totally unique. You’re able to create a new video from within the app or import one from your library. The app will then extract frames from your video and assemble them in randomly generated collages with randomly chosen filters. To apply a different filter or adjust the lighting in a collage, just give it a tap to move into the editing and sharing mode. It’s really that easy.

AutoSampler – convert video clips into retro-looking photos! is available for free today only (02/10). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 23 ratings.

Those Days(+Journal/Calendar/Reminder/Photo) ($2.99 → Free, 4.4 MB): Arrange and view your photos more efficiently with Those Days. It’s for anyone who has difficulty keeping track of photos.

Sometimes tracking down photos in Apple’s native Photos app can be tricky, especially if you have a huge library. Those Days simplifies the search by allowing you to view your photos on a monthly calendar. All you have to do is provide Those Days with access to your library, and it will instantly arrange and display your photos. If multiple photos were taken on a single day, just tap on it to view all of them at once. Those Days also allows you to add new photos and events. The app includes iCloud support, the ability to add comments, and a customizable grid view.

Those Days(+Journal/Calendar/Reminder/Photo) is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 140 ratings.

Pomodoro Time: Focus Timer & Goal Tracker for work and study based on Pomodoro Technique ™ ($1.99 → Free, 11.3 MB): Get things done more efficiently with Pomodoro Time. It’s ideal for those with a lot on their plate.

This tried and true technique helps you define clear goals and get them done faster by setting aside blocks of time. You’re able to create as many tasks as necessary and organize them however you wish. Then hit play and get to work. The timer will count down from 25 minutes and chime when the time is up to provide you with a short break. Repeat the process over and over until you’re done for the day. You’re able to adjust your Pomodoro and break durations within the settings menu. You’re also able to choose custom alarm sounds, jump between tasks, and even monitor your timer within Notification Center.

iPad:

Autodesk ForceEffect Flow ($2.99 → Free, 24.0 MB): Find out how aerodynamic your 2-D designs are with this powerful productivity app from Autodesk. It’s a fantastic app for designers and engineers.

You’re able to freely sketch your designs or use object detection technology to capture geometry from your environment. You can then simulate the aerodynamic performance of your design and modify it to find new design options. During the simulation process, you’re able to adjust the speed of the airflow and view the results in real-time. The app also includes four visualization modes, adjustable display precision, imperial and metric support, and the ability to capture snapshots or video to share with others.
