Since our friend and fan Anna Lee was the first to nail all 25 apps on our Facebook page, we’re gonna save ourselves some typing time and do the old copy-paste from Anna’s post. Here are her answers to the yesterday’s pop quiz:
When evaluating the visibility of a logo design, most designers consider how it will look in all kinds of situations — printed on advertisements, cast in metal, embossed on letterhead, foil-stamped on packaging, blown up to a mega-size for environmental signage, etc.
Logos for apps, however, are different. The most important test is how the mark will look at less than a quarter-inch high when viewed on a smartphone or laptop screen. Here’s a quiz to see if you can name these app brands, shown here larger than they are normally seen. The answers are coming tomorrow!
In the beginning there were phones and cameras. We used phones for phone calling and cameras for camera photography. And then it came to pass that in the year 2000 the first camera-phone was sold in Japan, the J-phone. That’s when mobilography entered our lives and it doesn’t seem to be planning on exiting any time soon. But once the euphoria from the ability to take pictures with phones began to dissipate, we’ve noticed that pictures come out from phones kind of… wrong. Not bright enough, not sharp enough. Eventually, folks have figured out how to deal with that, too. Enters the mobile photo editing software.
In seven or so years in its existence, there have been probably hundreds, if not thousands, of different apps allowing user to alter mobile photographs as he or she saw fit. And now there’s one that’s actually quite different. It’s called Clashot (available free on the AppStore and on Google Play) and it serves as a mobile platform, rather than just an editing app.
It allows you and your friends upload, like, comment share and sell (sic!) your mobile photos via Depositphotos. So, we figure, every now and again different editing apps pop up on the market, why not tell you about the ones that will definitely help you make your mobile photos stand out, so that they are not only getting likes and comments, but also supplement your income. Right now there are 5 mobile photo editing apps that we think you should stick with.
