hip to the beat, daddy-o

I got a new iPhone app today

I don’t normally brag or share about apps cos, well, its a bit passe, but this one is waaay cool

Its an old school camera simulator with different lens and film choices and its brilliant.

so many cool options for taking photos with the iPhone 🙂

It might have a crap camera relatively speaking, but the results are perfect for use on the web/flickr/facebook and blogs.  It could possibly manage an A4 print but to worry about quality would be missing the point.  Apple really have nailed the point of a smart phone.  It does lots of things pretty well – its no substitute for a dedicated device, or laptop or camera or games machine, but it does them all well enough for when you’re out an about for it to be a star.  My Nokia N95 was a good camera, a reasonable phone and crap at anything else.

The iPhone and its oh so clever App Store really is a work of genius.
