5 Best Camera Apps

Phones are a wonderful thing that many of us cannot possibly fathom being without. They are always with us in our purses, pockets and hands. We use the camera on our phones for anything and everything. For selfies, which have become a right of passage and life style incorporated in songs and a favourite occurrence on twitter and Facebook. To pictures of our dinner, family pictures, the mountains and beach and every other thing in-between.

Our phones are consistently being updated with the camera being a main focus for many. We aren’t always satisfied with the simple picture in the way it was taken. Instagram really spearheaded the fad of filters and editing that has simply expanded and grown since. Take a look below at the top 5 camera apps available on iTunes today!

Tumblr Website and App Now Used by Over 100 Million Micro-Bloggers

Tumblr has reached a massive milestone with the image-sharing, socially-connected website now providing a platform for over 100 million bloggers to have their voices heard and creativity seen via the World Wide Web.

Since the Tumblr site’s launch in 2007 those 100 million users have made 44.6 billion blog posts, from to wonderful to the weird with thousands of giggly-worthy gifs to some awesome original artwork shared on a daily basis. Pictures can be accompanied by a small description or ‘micro-blog’ and tagging is used to generate a social buzz online.

As well as the popular website Tumblr has apps and mobile platforms for Android, Apple iOS and BlackBerry smartphones increasing the accessibility for all gadget users and has helped Tumblr become one of the top most frequented sites.

Tumblr has however been criticised for it liberalness and lack of content control and still allows users to share risqué and graphic images. The reblogging of copyrighted images has also caused friction between the company of 167 just employees and a number of mainstream creative studios.

What we know is that Tumblr can provide hours of distraction and is easy to get lost in with the masses of new content uploaded every day!
