Filter It with 'PictureShow' and Trey Ratcliff's '100 Cameras in 1'

What has become somewhat of a tradition for me here, I am posting about a couple of iPhone (iOS) apps currently on sale in the App Store that might be of interest to iPhone photographers.

I haven't tried them as yet at the time of this writing, so obviously I this is not meant to be a review or recommendation. I hope to try them out soon though.

Both are similar in respects that they apply filters and/or textures to your photos to alter their look and/or mood.

Camera+ Returns to the App Store and Diptic is Updated

Star Wars iOS Game Apps Price Cuts

Just a quick heads up on some price drops of Star Wars iOS apps. I don't know if these are merely sales or permanent price changes. That said, I would assume they are on sale for a limited time instead of risk it and see the prices jump back up.

Calling All Flying Cars: Be on the Lookout for Space Precinct

Space PrecinctWith all the celebrating going on of the 47th anniversary of Doctor Who on November 23rd last month, many science fiction fans may have missed the DVD release of the 1994-1995 sci-fi series, Space Precinct. This review of Gerry Anderson's Space Precinct complete series DVD box set release is to complement our review in the latest episode (episode 9) of Hitchhiker's Guide to British Sci-Fi.


The series was created and produced by Gerry Anderson. A familiar name to sci-fi fans as his previous works include (in reverse order) Space: 1999, UFO, Captain Scarlet and the Mysersons, Thunderbirds, Stingray, Fireball XL5, and Supercar, to name a few. Space Precinct has a different flavor than his previous work. It is a police drama set in the future, 2040 to be exact. Though unlike another British television sci-fi police series, Star Cops, this series embraces many sci-fi iconic elements in it. In other words, you will see aliens in this series. They are two very different series, not to be confused with each other even though they are both science fiction police dramas produced in the UK.
