Mister Roboto: Another nail on the Apple's coffin?

Papi61,

Are you a dick? I never said they're selling like hotcakes.

I don't care if the whole world moves over to "whatever", I am not. I use the kit I choose to use and as for my establishment I will order what is required for it.

Another nail on the Apple's coffin?

No. Not at all.

I work in a school, its a full windows environment except for the 50 odd iPads.

The staff always bitch about their windows laptops but love the iPads. They hate windows 8.1 even more. OK, teachers are not tech savvy at all, tech dimwits actually.

In my environment the Surface will replace laptops and maybe even some desktops. The rise of the iPad is likely to be unaffected. Neither will the iPad ever threaten windows machines in my school.

It's interesting to note that when it comes to personal devices the vast majority of staff own iPads, then Android.

I think the Surface is likely to threaten laptops (and perhaps even desktops) made by other vendors and not the Apple juggernaut. We'll see!

maxnimo: And what happens if a mad insider employee steals your precious photos?
Or if a mad insider employee sells your precious photos on the black market?
Or if a mad insider employee sabotages the storage servers?
Or if a mad insider employee scrambles all the user passwords?

So, maxnimo, you don't bank then either?

Wye Photography: I am in the UK and have just tried to sign-up. The sign-in screens take me to the paid plans with only 5Gb being free or free unlimited uploads with Amazon Prime which isn't free. No where do any of the sign-in screens mention these two plans.

This is absolutely mis-leading and has rather cheesed me off somewhat!

Thank you newe that is what I did.

Toccata47: This article either turns a blind eye or worse, reflects ignorance of phone photography to such a degree that one must question the authors authority on the subject.

There are an array of sites that have this subject well covered. If dpr can't be an authority in this space it should get out rather than erode brand confidence.

One vote for closing down Connect alongside gear shop.

@Lars Rehm,

You tell him Lars!

For what it's worth, I think it is a good well rounded review. Although I am a self confessed Apple fan I don't think there is a bad phone camera and the products are pretty close, swings and roundabouts and personal preference.

Good read, I enjoyed it, Many Thanks.

What! Another one!

I paid and downloaded then deleted.

Changed my mind and installed again as I was sorting out the apps I want to use.

Overall I like the app. The UI and colour scheme are excellent and very pleasant to use.

I find the app easy to use and to do basic adjustments to the image before sending to Photo Toaster, Snapseed, Mextures or Distressed.

The difference between the Structure and Clarity tools can be a little confusing, curves are excellent, when using a mask a colour tint and 'brush' size would be very helpful and so would a noise tool.

A very nice little app that can grow

skanter: No iPad version? who can edit on a phone?

I can. It's a challenge I enjoy (I just upgraded to a iPhone 6 Plus from a 4S, editing photos is a breeze on the 6 Plus and challenging but fun on the 4S). One of my iPhone 4S photos is on the BBC website, so I guess it can work pretty well.

..and if you read the article iPad and Android versions are in development.

jkoch2: Lauterbrunnen farmers complained when BASE, wing suit, paraglider, and other aerial dare-devils began leaving corpses on their properties, scaring the cows. A disproportionate share of Alpine cows die in falls, so maybe their is an in-bred anxiety. There must also be a bovine wisdom or resignation that one cannot cheat death for long: today clover, tomorrow chopped sirloin.

If wolves are introduced in the Lauterbrunnen valley, that will solve the problem of the growing number of corpses.

Or they (the stiffs) can be sold to a chain of oriental restaurants.

Wonderful images. The one of the Matterhorn is particularly sublime. And that wonderful Lauterbrunnen valley - vertigo!

Hmmmm, considering if it was not for these chaps (Niepce, Daguerre, Fox Talbot and Hershel, etc.), you guys would not be masturbating over your latest piece of electronic imaging gadget. A little respect is in order.

munro harrap: There is also another good reason for keeping all the art we have here here. Its called war. You can see online what IS and the Taliban do, so their people's culture would be safer were it in the UK, all of ity, rather than in Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan, and we now also have to control who is allowed to buy stuff as any number of artworks purchased privately not only disappear into bank vaults,

but can be bought by people who then destroy them as ideologically unacceptable.
I dare say that is already happening, so stop sales and guard our human heritage.

@bobus,

You could have at least attempted to be original with your rather crass insult. I'm rather disappointed with you bobus.

photophile: Looks almost exactly like any place in Manchester....or Birmingham...or Glasgow....minus the red sky.

Looks like Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham! LOL, it does doesn't it.

The red sky is obviously light pollution from street lights.

@bobus,

No, the Uk hasn't allowed "any terrorist to enter the place" (I assume you mean enter the UK).

All our terrorists are home grown.
