iPhoto for iPad and iPhone released for $4.99

iPhoto for iPad iPhone

At yesterday's iPad event, Apple unveiled the final piece of the puzzle as it pertains to bringing the full iLife suite to iOS with the release of iPhoto for iPad and iPhone. Similar to GarageBand and iMovie, iPhoto is available now as a universal app for $5. So, what's the draw? Well, iPhoto lets you use your iOS device's multi-touch display to perform basic photo editing function like simple one-tap white balance, red-eye removal, and exposure adjustments. You can also crop and straighten images, and remove blemishes with ease.

You can pull up your photos that are stored on your device, including the camera roll and Photo Stream, and compare images side-by-side. Edits are non-destructive as they save a copy rather than editing the original. You can process images that are up to 19 megapixels, which should be fine for the vast majority of people out there, but for those of you shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II in RAW format, you may wanna look elsewhere for your photo processing software--but in that scenario, why would you be using an iPad for that function anyway?

You've got a bunch of sharing options, including Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr. You can also export photos to your Camera Roll and to iTunes and email them to contacts. One new feature is Journal, where you can select a group of photos that iPhoto then puts together in a unique gallery with dates, weather information, maps, and more. It's like making a diary out of photos relating to an event or range of dates.

For $5, you can't go wrong with iPhoto for iOS. You can get it now on the App Store.

The New Apple iPad: Retina Display, 4G LTE, A5X processor, $499 on March 16th

iPad 3

Apple announced the new iPad at this morning's iPad event, and it looks like a stellar upgrade. What can you expect to find in the updated Apple tablet? Well, pretty much everything that we thought we'd see. The new iPad sports a 2048x1536 Retina Display, the highest resolution display that Apple has ever shipped, and that's ever shipped on any portable device. It's also packing in 4G LTE, compatible with both Verizon's 4G LTE network and AT&T's newer (and smaller) 4G LTE network as well. It's got a FaceTime camera on front like before, but this time the rear camera is 5 megapixels and can record in 1080p. Running the show under the hood is the new Apple A5X processor, which has a quad-core graphics chip. In an interesting note from the event, Mike Capps from Epic Games mentioned that the new iPad has a higher screen resolution and more memory than the Xbox 360 and PS3. The iPad also supports dictation with the press of the microphone key on the soft keyboard, similar to what you find on the iPhone 4S. Unfortunately, no mention was made of Siri integration.

The new iPad goes on sale on March 16th (next Friday!) and will sell for $499 for 16 GB, $599 for 32 GB, and $699 for 64 GB Wi-Fi models. If you want the 4G versions, the prices are $629, $729, and $829 respectively. You can pre-order one today from Apple.
