This from the Twitter blog:
Every day, millions of people come to Twitter to connect with the things they care about and find out what’s happening around the world. As one of the most compelling forms of self-expression, photos have long been an important part of these experiences.
Starting today, you’ll be able to edit and refine your photos, right from Twitter. The latest versions of Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android introduce a few new ways to enhance the images you tweet. We’re grateful to our partner, Aviary, for powering our filters and effects.
Filters. Apply one of eight filters, ranging from black & white to vintage, to add a new look and feel to your photos.
Take a bird’s-eye view. See how each filter would affect your photo in a single grid view, or swipe through looks to compare your options.
Frame the action. Crop and pinch to zoom in order to focus attention.
Auto-enhance. Make your photos pop with balanced light and colors by tapping the wand.
In June, 2011, we introduced the ability to attach a photo to your Tweet, a first step toward improving the entire photo experience on Twitter. Since then we’ve been making it easier and faster to share and discover and enjoy great photos on Twitter every day:
- You can expand Tweets to view photos from various photo services right on Twitter;
- You can preview photos directly in Discover and search;
- You can quickly swipe through images on Twitter with photo streams in profiles and search results.

Definitely the hottest project ever. Pebble have received a pledged of over US$1.875M, yes M for million already with still 35 days to go. Definitely the hottest item and will be the most talk about item this year. Check out the video for what it can do and if you’re an app developer, check out their SDK and jump onboard quick for this baby is making it into the big time in no time. There’s so much info to cover and I’m not going to repost anything off their Kickstarter page, just click over and marvel.

I’m loving this app but there’s much improvements to be made. The media insert still not working after the latest update on Wednesday. Turning pages is a real pain, you cannot just swipe for next page, instead you have to hit that top left or right page corner, now this is lame. Some of the lag problem been tackled in the latest update but still traces of screen lock up here and there. For us in Asia, the worst part is that the app does not support Chinese nor Japanese input , real bummer (well, emoticons work at least, LOL).
Is it that bad? well, the app has real potential but I suspect it require much horsepower to get this app running. On the new iPad, it seems ok, more laggy on the iPad 2, for the iPad 1, well….don’t even think about it.
I hope the developers can work out the problem fast cause this app is getting a lot of attention for its innovative interface but at the same time, bad vibes for its problems.
Apple just released the 145-page User Guide via iBooks, download it from iTunes now, link here.

Apart from the new processor, new Retina Display, additional battery capacity, improved camera, Siri Dictation has to be one of the great new features of the new iPad. Check out what it can do in this video, totally awesome.

Ever since the Apple big event last week, been getting a lot of questions from ppl regarding the new iPhoto app for iPad and iPhone. Whether it’s any good and worth US$4.99. Well, to answer all, nothing beats a demo video so ppl can see it for themselves. I personally find the iPad version more appealing with that extra screen estate. For the iPhone….nah.
