What apps? Amazing apps by the hundreds.

A time lapse app that records 720p video in fully controllable shooting and playback frame rates...for $2.00!?! What an amazing deal!

The HDR app I downloaded is just OK, but the real beauty is that it happens in 20 seconds. It takes longer than that to find my USB cable to load raw files from my camera to desktop.

Postagram will make a print, enclosed in a mailing folder, with a message to the addressee, and get it there in 3 days. Oh yeah, for $0.99! If these are just gimmicks, why don't serious camera engineering departments make them more respectable? Having professional camera gear tethered to a laptop is nothing new, but for an everyday carry camera, the new possibilities are exciting.
