Elevation chart : process your datum data on the iPhone

This iPhone app has been developed for surveyor and architect to builders in this line of profession. Elevation chart is used to calculate the elevation if ground level anywhere in the world using google maps. Yes I know that google earth on the Pc
Has this feature but it's not portable and it doesn't produce a chart of the level between two points giving you a site section.

Using elevation chart iPhone app users will find a faster way to get co-ordinates and ground lines and datums at their finger tips on site. This will help architects and builders to have a better understanding of the ground lines whilst doing a site analysis.

Alternatively you could just use the single pin to pin point one inquired level or datum on site. There are many ways to use the iPhone app elevation chart, above are only examples of how I use this app.

Final impressions : this app is not an alternative to a surveyors Drawing. But it will give you a very accurate reading for an analysis on site meeting ect. I hope to see major improvements in future updates giving users a way to draw up a plan of contours by choosing all corners of the site. This is very possible, watch out land surveyors, iPhone plans to take your job. Steve jobs

Toon Camera: take cartoonist pictures with iPhone

When I first used this iPhone app Toon Camera I realized it was made with intentions not only for special effects but for artists to use in a way that you wouldn't expect. Toon camera has a live view displaying the image in either black and white sketch, or color cartoon sketch. Both these views have superb quality finish and will be enjoyed by professionals or everyday users. So how do we use this as an artist ? You should take a picture in black and white sketch of the desired subject you would like to render. Doing this is a lazy way but super efficient and can still have the effect on the finished product. You then take your black and white picture and render it in autodesk SketchBook app. Using these two apps will give you the perfect render that looks professional. This app can further be used for the everyday user that would like a picture fully rendered with just a click, this image will look like a cartoon render, hence ToonCamera. The below image shows a color render using ToonCamera for iPhone

The below image shows a black and white render

These settings include adjusting your stroke thickness making it darker or lighter. In both modes using a softer pen will give you a better finish.

Final impressions: iPhone app ToonCamera is not the only camera app that can produce this effect, there are alternatives in the app store but I find this app superior. This app will award you with perfect shots to email to clients, post to facebook and twitter, mms a friend or simply post to you blogs like I have. I rate this app 4/5

Lens flare: touchup your pics on iPhone

Usually people tend to take a picture with their iPhone and either not edit it further or export to edit in Photoshop. Unaware of iPhones potential users need to look for apps such as Lens Flare iPhone app. This app perform one task only, Place a lens flare where you need it for a desired effect. Here is an example of how I would use lens flare. Below is a pic I edited using lens flare to give the desires "sparkle" to the pic.

Judging the light angles and shadows you should place your lens flare accordingly. Usually lens flare is used on highly glossy finish products like chrome ect. But don't get me wrong you can use it in many ways and be creative. You are provided with many types of lens flares as shown in the picture below.

Using different types of lend flares for different tones and subjects makes this app worth it. Applying these flares are done by touching where you want it then pinching to adjust the size or rotate for Angel flare. Using these techniques in your pictures will help make a professional picture in a short time and makes it easy for anyone to do. No need for photoshop skills to edit pictures.

Final impression: lens flare iPhone app has kept me amazed by the quality lens you can apply to pictures and without pixelating. User friendliness is a major breakthrough, future update will keep you happy with features. What's nice about iPhone apps is you need to integrate like 7 apps to one picture to get a desired effect. At the end of your editing you can have a picture that you would usually do on Photoshop just in shorter time.

Colour splash for iPhone

When it comes to editing pics on the iPhone, possibilities are endless. Colour splash brings you another possibility to enhance your iPhone pics. What colour splash does is it takes. The pic you upload to edit and duplicates it then desaturates the top layer pic. Then you mask the images and erase the saturated image in top to see the colour picture behind. Kind of like a Photoshop effect, however this is made easy for the iPhone user. Using this effect you can draw attention to your subject of the pic or use the backdrop composition as the colour and your subject black and white desaturated.

Final impression: Colour splash is the more pioneer app in terms of speed and user-friendliness.

ZooZcontrol: iPhone joystick

The worst part of playing a Pc game is using the keyboard controls. They configured for typing and not gaming. Making ergonomics hard for gamers. This is when you have your iPhone with ZooZcontrol app. Your iphobe the. Acts as a wireless joystick, but what's even better is that your joystick now has an accelerometer in which you can steer your car with playing NFS or any other car game. Alternatively you can switch off the accelerometer and use touch pad directional analog for steering. Your joystick has buttons that are configurable to your liking, thus maximizing ergonomically pleasing gameplay. All this is possible via wireless networks.

Connect to your wireless network and dual play your mate with his iPhone on split screen. The possibilities are endless with a joystick, be creative and you will love this app.

Final impression: this is a genuine app that's worth the cost. From a critique point of view I think to improve usability, I would like to see adhoc wireless to a Pc supported. This will make life alot easier for users without a router. This app is my fav joystick in the AppStore.

The iPhone is really a nice looking phone and aesthetically pleasing retina display. However without being able to customize every icon and and slide bar ect on springboard this phones user interface will eventually get boring. To overcome this we suggest you install winterboard from cydia. This app does support retina display themes and is well worth it, why , because it's free. Winterboard has countless themes you can choose from in cydia and your iPhone will change everyday, More than the seasons.

What's nice is that you are able to apply winterboard themes from your settings icon on springboard. So you don't have to go to the app to change a theme.

Final Impression: winterboard makes your iPhone like no other, making your own kind of icons are possible through SSH. I've seen people make each icon a face of them with different expressions haha. This app can be a little buggy depending on what exe you used to jailbreak. If you have any problems please feel free to email me and I will assist you.

Mxtube: store YouTube videos on your iPhone to view later

The most annoying thing is to search for a YouTube video that you saw once and then still download it. Depending on your network speed it might take some time. By the time you have found and downloaded your video your friend has lost intrest and the topic has changed. So avoiding that situation MxTube will come into play. This app is a crack from cydia. MxTube is the best download app for iPhone. You can simply stream in low or high quality. If you wish you can download the video and watch it later. Obviously most of us will choose the download method. You are able to pause a download and resume later when you have time again. U find this really usefull, you will find sometimes in the middle of a download you have to rush off leaving your wireless range and will need to pause the download if you don't want to suffer huge bills abroad. You may also structure the downloads to your liking. Below are images of how this app works, let me know if you agree that MxTube is the best YouTube downloader.

Tripod for iPhone 4 and blackberry

Just bought this little tripod for my iPhone 4, it's a small little cheap Chinese knock off that works really well, what I did was opened it and then adjusted it to make a quality tripod, the clamp was breakable so I put a new sliding spring that works way better. This is so small it's perfect for travel as I know how many iPhone users use their iPhone for a all in one laptop mobile device for blogging and writing ect. This tripod is very nice for the price. Please ask me for details if you would like one. Alternatively I will be giving one away on free iphobe hub in a few
Weeks. Keep yours eyes wide.
Below are some images of this attractive tripod with adjustable legs.

DigiDrummer: professional drummer alternative for iPhone 4

When I saw this app I expected the regular drum app that has a picture of a drum set from top view with sounds tagged to the right places where your finger touches the screen coupled with the sounds to give a drum effect, these apps are useless, however DigiDrummer gave me a real feeling if drumming that professionals use around the world.

The above pic shows the layout of the drums, I know it's not the most attractive like the rest in the app store but it's made like this for a good reason, personally I would prefer utility over aesthetics. Your layout gives you all the crashes , snares and kicks, but since you using your fingers you get more space to do a drum roll, yes you heard right , you can drum roll with this amazing app and that's what makes it a better app than the rest, but also it has the vest sound ever when hooked up to an amp and good speaker set. Here's a look at the drum roll options and settings.

Above is the settings menu, you can change the Drum roll pace. Slide your finger along the kick and see your skill like a pro sounding drummer. DigiDrummer has many drum kits so it's not the boring standard drum kit, giving you freedom to make a custom drum kit for your needs makes DigiDrummer amazing. You can change the skin To 3 different types , personally I pike the black as seen in my demo, it's way better for drum rolling. You can also play along with your music by playing your iPod in the background and playing DigiDrummer app, it sound great for practice sessions. Another great utility is that you cam save your recordings and send them to your friend over Bluetooth provided he got the same app.

Final Impression: DigiDrummer by software is made for professionals in the industry, it's my favorite drumming app, and I can't replace it as it stands out from the rest in the app store, from a critiqued point of view this app cannot be faulted. Happy drumming :)

Business card recognition app: world card

Many business men have iPhones for various resons, not because it's the best phone or most expensive but mainly that it serves business men with tools they need, now the app store has just launched another reason for business men to love their iPhones. World card reader takes
The hassle out of storing business cards. You now have a electronic business card book that gets backedup , so there's no reason to worry about losing cards. This app not only saves the business card but it also reads/ recognizes cards and puts them into your phone book, not only does it recognize the name and number for your contact book but also saves the shop or street address for gps navigation and saves email for emailing. Taking about efficiency. That's what the iPhones all about. This not only makes your pocket smaller but it's also a neat way to approach accepting business cards from clients. Tell them you would rather save paper and keep their card, all you need is a pic of it.

The above screen shots show you how the app works, trust me this app recognizes English and most other languages, it reads most text used in business cards, however it won't read the cheap business cards that are not laid out by a printing company format. If it's a ugly cheap card then it won't read it. However I'm sure if you a business man you not going to do business with a wanna be.
