Lightroom For iPad Coming (maybe) . . .

I recently took a survey for our favorite creative software company, Adobe, about user experience, pricing, and overall impressions of the company.  I jumped at the chance to be heard since so many of my students complain about Adobe's software license practices, especially with the new subscription based Creative Cloud. The survey was typical, but some of the questions shed a little light on a possible introduction of an iPad lightroom component.  Here are some interesting screen grabs.

Make A Quick Fathers Day Printed Card From Your iPhone!

Who really wants to spend time shopping for a Fathers Day gift?  Am I right or am I right?  If you want to send a card to let that special guy, know you care, consider using ink cards for iphone, ipad, and android.  It is a free app which you just upload your own photo, pick a design scheme, order, and your done.  Key ingredient, they are CHEEEEEEEAP (but not cheap looking). You can even add a custom message like: You made me happen!

You a ladies man (at least Mom thought so)

Pops you the tops!

or my personal favorite - I'm your reminder that happy accidents do happen!

Happy Fathers Day!

The Cloth iPhone app is a quirky little idea.  When you got a good clothing ensemble going, snap a picture of yourself and catalog it.  Next time your stuck trying to decide what to wear, just check that archive.  Time saved! I won't begin to judge what type of person would use this app, needless to say, I just downloaded my copy of it.  Below is the promo video, and you can get the app here
