by Ian Black

Learn about HDR photography, attend a meeting over your phone, scratch your bacon itch in today’s fresh apps.

Pro HDR Camera ($1.99)

Ever hear of High Dynamic Range photography?

Regular photographs don’t have a great range between the lightest lights and darkest darks. HDR photography enhances the range by capturing two exposures one for highlights and one for shadow and then aligns the two together to form a single photo. This app creates HDR using our Android’s camera.

Choose fully automatic or manual mode where you adjust the settings yourself. Viewer (Free)
