Photoshop Express adds new tools, filter strength gauge, RAW format import

Adobe has followed up on its recent spate of new iPad apps with an update to the older Photoshop Express, now at version 3.4. The new version offers four specific new features: two new tools, the ability to import photos in RAW format, and a new ability to increase or decrease filter strength as desired. The two new tools are a "defog" tool to remove haziness, and a "blemish removal" tool. Photoshop Express is available free from the App Store. The app is also compatible with the iPhone.

Google Maps updates to 3.2 for iOS, improves Explore view

Google has updated its Maps app (free) for iPhone and iPad, bringing it up to version 3.2. Users can now view search results with descriptions right on the map or in a list, and easily switch between them. Users can also now see their reservations (that have addresses) and events from Gmail labeled on the map. The advertising giant has also improved the Explore feature, an incorporated local guide on the maps that show users different places and activities that are happening now or soon, depending on the location and time of day. It's not yet clear if the list of local options is determined by paid placement through Google or is simply compiled from publicly-available sources.
