Diptic – iTunes App of the Week Review

Written by iHospital. Posted in Accessories

Diptic app reviewiPhone and iPad Application – Diptic – FREE – 4 IV’s

What is Diptic?

Diptic is a photo application designed by Peak Systems for the iPhone and iPad.  It also happens to be this week’s “App Store App of the Week”.

What did you like about Diptic?

This is a nicely designed application that allows people to frame several photos into one custom designed photo.  This application may take up hours of your time depending on how much you love photography.

Diptic comes preloaded with 24 layouts.  For $0.99 extra you expand the number of layouts to 52.  The default layouts are square and the expanded layouts can be adjusted.    Using Diptic is simple. After you decide which layout you’re going to use it’s time to start adding pictures.  You can either take some new pictures, add them from your photo album, add them from Facebook, or select them from Flickr.  Then it’s time to start editing.  You can pinch and pull the image to get the right the size.  You can also edit the saturation, brightness, border color and much more.  The best part is playing around with the 14 filters which is very similar to our beloved Instagram.

Here are some other features:

  • You can adjust border color and width
  • Create rounded corners
  • Shake to clear functionality on every screen
  • Send Diptic photos directly to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and many more different networks
  • High resolution options
  • iPad 3 Retina Display
  • Random layout option for when you can’t decide

What didn’t you like about Diptic?

The most common complaint we get about Diptic is that there aren’t enough layouts that come with the free edition.  Other than that, everyone loves it!

Where can we get it?

Download this application for free this week in the App Store. After this week, it will go back to being $0.99.

Apple’s stunning Retina display is one of their proudest achievements.  Engineers developed pixels that are a mere 78 micrometers wide, and they were also able to pack together four times the number of pixels into the 3.5 inch screen found on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4.   This results in an image based on 326 pixels per inch. Even the human eye can’t distinguish pixels on the screen.

The new iPad arrived in stores this morning, along with massive lineups all over the United States.  At Apple’s flagship store in New York (which happens to be a 10 minute walk from iHospital New York City just in case you want to stop in and say hello!) Luis Zacharius, an Army sergeant, arrived at 5:00 a.m. to get his hands on the Apple’s third-generation iPad.  Luis told MacWorld, “I’ve been to all the launches, and it’s a great experience.  I like waiting outside the store, the anticipation, meeting and talking with new people.”

As we all know by know, the new iPad sports a crystal clear 2048-by-1536 resolution Retina display.  According to Apple, the new display offers viewers 44 percent greater color saturation and an astounding 3.1 million pixels in the same 9.7 inch space.  The pixels are so close together that the human eye can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance.

Many of the apps you know and love have been updated and upgraded to be viewed in the new Retina display.  Here’s 13 for you to check out today!

1.) Tweetbot – A Twitter Client with Personality – A neat application designed for viewing Twitter on your iPad.  It has a beautifully crafted interface, sounds & animation, and features like multiple timelines and smart gestures.  It costs $3.00 and you can purchase it from iTunes here

iPad 3 to Launch First Week of March!

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

The highly anticipated iPad 3 was rumored to be introduced in February , but low and behold, Apple will not be holding an event in February according to The Loop.  Instead, the highly reliable AllThingsD announced today that Apple will be holding a special event in early March to launch the next iPad.  Good things come to those who wait right?

It will most likely take place in San Francisco, presumably at Apple’s favorite location for big announcements like these, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.  This is where the iPad was launched in 2010 and the iPad 2 debuted in 2011.  Apple has declined to comment on the time or date of the event, saying the company does not comment on rumors or speculation.

When will you be able to get your paws on the iPad 3 if it’s launched in early March?  I’m glad you asked.  Following in the footsteps of previous launches, you will most likely be able to purchase the next iPad a week or so after the launch.  Get your sleeping bags ready!
