Snappy is a camera application that allows you to launch the Camera without exiting the application you are currently in.
Once you have installed Snappy, it can be launched by tapping and holding the status bar. This will drop the Camera down allowing the ability to quickly take a photo.

The Photos application’s new features mainly have to do with the way photos are shared. You can now of course send photos via MMS.

You can also open your email and paste the photos into an existing email, draft, reply or new email. [Read more...]

The really nice thing about this is it’s saving the original file size. So once you plug your iPhone or iPod Touch to your computer you can pull the full resolution picture off. [Read more...]
