LensFX lets users capture a photo, apply Hollywood effects
Photo editor app for iOS LensFX was released this week, offering users a variety of 'Hollywood' effects. LensFX features over 130 effects to add to an image, such as explosions, aircraft, fire and dinosaurs. Each effect can be applied as individual or multiple layers, and can be moved, resized or rotated independently. Realistic color correction, filters and lens textures are also included, that render as high resolution images.
LensFX is available through the iTunes Store for $2, with several in-app purchases priced at $1 each. Requiring iOS 6, LensFX is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Carrot Fit released, available at launch sale price of 33 percent off
Activity tracking app Carrot Fit was launched Thursday, aiming to stand out as a humor-oriented weight-loss monitor. When using Carrot Fit, the weight tracker requires entering one's current weight, and as weight is lost, the app presents "rewards," such as interesting facts and workout tips. Carrot Fit creates a graph of information, and provides BMI referencing. Weight gained instigates the app's berating comments, intended for humorous motivation. Available for $2, Carrot Fit requires iOS 7 or later.
