    !
    Ok bye!!

  26. I have reviewed and knowledgeable quite a few internet hosting providers. I have utilised costly and low-cost and found out that some of the pretty best ones had been the low-priced ones. So you must also be often on the hunt for the next most effective company on the market providing just a tad additional than what you’re gaining now, maybe within the similar value or maybe even in less because they do exist. Go ahead and do your fundamental analysis to find a cheap reseller hosting review business with all of the above qualities, that way you’ll not simply just save revenue, you may be obtaining a rare and pleasant time carrying out it all.

  27. I am looking into iPhone Photography now. I know this is late but still its better late then never. Let’s see how much I will succeed.

    Great list, really essential for any iphone owner serious about photography!

    As suggestion you could check this app to add to the list: “Almost DSLR”, it allows you to control your iphone camera in much more detail, like focus/exposure lock, and much more…

    Unfortunately I could not test it, since it doesnt work with 3g. :-(

  29. Hey, informative Blog, keep it up! I have bookmarked for future reference! All the best

  30. McKay /

    Great list, thanks. I’m really loving the diversity and new angles that people are coming out with because the iPhone can do things cameras never could before. You give a good cross section and I’ve just tried the DSLR Remote app on your tip. Works great, been playing with it for the last hour, totally new angle to my DSLR shooting. The basic app is now free btw, no longer $1.99. The Pro is still pricyyy though.

    I’m wondering what you think of some of the newer photo apps storming the market such as Instragram and Hipstamatic? How do you find them in comparison to Camera Bag, which seems to be losing ground, especially with the sharing.

    For panorama photos, have you tried AutoStitch? I’m in love with the fact that you can take photos haphazardly up, down, sideways without any regard for lining them up and it just stitched them all together free of any linear boundaries. I’ve taken whole rooms this way and the quality of alignment is really super.

    One other app that has some unique life is Diptic where you can compose multi-image pictures.

    All combined, pretty fun. Thanks again and if you’re up for an app review part 2 for 2011, we’d love to see what you’re playing with now.

  31. thnx! It is great!!!

    Thank you, very much!

  33. Very good resource. I have just discovered your website and must say I will be coming back. Some of the galleries are breath-taking.
    BTW – nice theme

  34. Those are sick. Thanks! I need to download a few.

  35. Thats very interesting!

  36. Hey Alex, thanks for commenting. I am using cufon.js for the title font. Not being able to select the title is a disadvantage of using it. I can change it, didn’t know people wanted me to 😉

  37. Great list, one design suggestion: make the title of the post possible to copy. I can’t currently due to the custom fonts you’re using. You can nowadays implement custom fonts using the @font-face property in CSS3. Or there are other JavaScripts that allow copying the title!

    Anyhow, a small suggestion!
    Keep it up! :)
