Hands On: D3lta 2.0.1 (iOS)

05/28, 10:05am

Geometric designs are "in" right now, and being popularized in clothing styles, jewelery, website designs, artwork, and more. Just about everything that can feature geometric designs can and will, and it's the benchmark of being on the forefront of trendy. We came across an app called D3lta which takes an unlikely candidate, photography, and juxtaposes it with the inherent "hipness" of geometric design.

The MacNN Podcast, episode 16: Money (and Touch ID) changes everything

05/28, 7:20am

Thanks to a combination of the Memorial Day weekend in the US (and bank holiday long weekend in the UK) along with continent-spanning long travel days for your MacNN editor, the process of putting the final touches on this week's episode of the growing-nicely and award-eligible MacNN Podcast was delayed by a couple of days, for which we apologize. As usual, we spent time on the weekend reviewing the top tech stories of the week, and bringing you our analysis.

Hands On: Pixelmator for iPhone 2.0.1

05/28, 7:20am

Where was this yesterday? We were in our car –– properly and correctly in a car park, we would never edit photographs on the Interstate –– and needed to do a tiny bit of work on an image that we'd forgotten to do earlier. Sometimes it's very handy getting to hide behind the third person: we were daft forgetting to do that image, we were daft forgetting to bring our iPads. If this were just about 18 hours later, we could've used the new Pixelmator 2.0.1 on our iPhones.

Hands On: Til Morning's Light 1.0.1 (iOS, Android)

05/28, 7:00am

So, unlike our game from Amazon Game Studios (Lost Within), we didn't call Todd and ask him to keep us company as we played Til Morning's Light, but the story here is still pretty horrific. The game sits firmly in the classic survival horror genre of exploring a spooky old house, solving puzzles and occasionally being attacked by monsters. The puzzles aren't terribly difficult, although there's a very real danger of overlooking something important. We also enjoyed the production quality, and the quick-time combat system held our interest.

Pointers: Summer Project E-publishing -- part one, introduction

05/27, 10:48pm

Self-publishing -- once known as the "vanity press" -- has been around for decades. If you had a burning desire to be a published author, but mysteriously the conventional literary "mafia" couldn't see the value in your heartbreaking work of staggering genius, you could pay to have books created for you in the hopes that this would lead to your "discovery." It rarely worked out that way (until 50 Shades of Gray took that path). With the advent of desktop publishing in the late 1980s and the emergence of e-books into the mainstream more recently, authors can now take much more control over their literary fate. In this new Summer Project, MacNN is going to show you what we mean, by putting out a book ourselves over the next eight weeks. Read on to find out more.

Hands On: Fusion 1.0.0 (iOS)

05/27, 9:04am

If you're a fan of photography, chances are you probably know what HDR photos are. If you're not, let us key you in. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range imaging, and it's been around for a while. It compiles three images, one over-exposed, one under-exposed, and one balance, to create images with bright, brilliant highlights and deep, rich shadows. iOS 8 brought about a burst mode to our favorite iOS devices, and we took a look at Fusion, a point-and-shoot camera app that allows you to take HDR images quickly and easily.
