The Appy is Snap(pier), Simply B&W is Grainier

Appysnap, a fun iPhone app, was updated earlier today. I find the app a great random break that reminds to me to at least take a few photos every day. They added several nice features, and continue working on the site. If you like silly little challenges it is definitely worth downloading this free app. I even won a $20 Amazon gift card in a random drawing back in June.

They added a “Snaps” section to the app where you can now see the prior pictures you’ve uploaded. I’m still embarrassed by this drawing I did of a cat on a horse 🙂

For those that enjoy black & white, Simply B&W was updated with several new features but kept the simplicity.

One thing I really like on the new settings pane is that you can now preserve the EXIF data of a picture when importing it from your library. If you use the app to take the picture the unedited original can now be saved.

There is now a Print Settings where you can add a vignette (black or white), as well as a border. The vignette option is a great addition. The final change was on the Film Setting where you could previously change the brightness and contrast. You can now add grain to the shot, which can really add a nice feel to certain B&W shots.
