Adobe brings simple video editing app to iPhone
Adobe has updated its "bite-sized" basic video editor for iPhone, VideoBite (free), to version 2.1 -- which brings expanded abilities, including titling, photo insertion and the ability to add music to the video. The program, designed to make editing a video as simple as possible, adds transitions and lets users now add titles and music to fit the length of the edited video, making it quickly shareable to social services like YouTube and Facebook (or email if desired). The app, which is also compatible with iPad for a bit more viewing room, offers an in-app purchase of a subscription to Adobe's own video-sharing service, Revel.
Pedometer++ gets UI makeover, takes advantage of M7 chip in iPhone 5s
Pedometer++ (free), one of the first apps to leverage the power of the iPhone 5s' built-in M7 motion co-processor, has been updated to change color as part of a psychological system to encourage users to walk or run more. It also replaces the list-centric UI with one that is more chart-centric, giving users an overview of the week's achievements and creating a new chart for each week to easily measure progress. When users hit their targeted number of steps, the app turns green. The update to version 2.0 also includes more languages, and now offers an export of step data as a CSV file for export to spreadsheets or other fitness programs.
