You might be sharing a lot more than you bargained for when you upload a picture on social media sites. If you’ve enabled the location services for your iPhone camera app then each photo you take from your iDevice will contain a geotag and other location metadata.

This may not be in your favor considering the rise in identity theft on social media. Thankfully, you can easily delete information about your location through the very useful deGeo app.

It’s not always that I want to reveal my GPS coordinates with other people when I share pictures on social media. That’s why I liked deGeo. It’s very simple to use and allows you to take out all unnecessary information from the snaps you select from your Camera Roll.

I don’t know about you all but I personally enjoy looking at the settings and tools people used in order to create particular images I like. You couldn’t read such data and more on your iPhone before however this has been made possible through the ViewExif app, which I found to be very useful and easy to use.

For those of you who don’t know ‘exif’ is an abbreviation of Exchangeable Image File. This is a standard when it comes to storing interchange information present in digital image files through JPEG compression.

The ViewExif app/extension, as the name implies, allows users to view the EXIF data for any photo from the Photo app. Even if you don’t know how to use extension apps before, you will find ViewExif easy to use. When you launch the app you will be met with a brief visual tutorial.

The IFTTT web service, which is short for “If This Then That”, has released a new camera app by the name Do Camera. Trying to figure out where to upload or store images from your iPhone can be time consuming. However, this simple little app is easy to use and gives you full control over what happens to the pictures you take from your iOS device.

Through Do Camera, you can quickly personalize what happens to the photos you take from your iPhone or other iOS devices. The concept of this app revolves around the idea of creating ‘Recipes’. You can think of it as a feature that enables your camera to connect with numerous external sources such as Facebook, Dropbox, Gmail, and more, depending on your preference. You can connect with any external service that has an open API.

Keeping track of things can be tedious and that’s why when it comes to lifestyle apps I prefer them to be new, easy, and functional.

Wants and Needs‘ is one such new release I got to know about recently. It allows users to keep track of things depending on their Wants, Needs, and Thanks, which is something I found most peculiar at first but then later grew to appreciate.

Not a day goes by that I don’t end up desiring one thing or another. However, I have to stop myself because of other needs, and sometimes I even forget about the thing I wanted in the first place. Through this useful app I was able to look at things in a different light, one that allowed me to prioritize my desires in an effective manner.

Since the introduction of third-party keywords for iOS 8, developers have released several offerings. We’ve seen some amazing features such as support for GIFs and predictive typing.

But we couldn’t resist covering WordBoard, this is a new release that saves you the time spent in typing the same things again and again.

The new keyboard app, developed by Stuart Hall, adds a key to automatically type the postal address, email address, hashtag, a reply email template, ASCII art or anything else imaginable.

Horizon Offers Horizontal Video Recording With Several Features On iOS

One of the biggest usability problems when it comes to recording videos with an iPhone is the vertical video recording. While vertical videos appear fine on widescreen mobile devices, they aren’t the best to watch on laptops and desktops, unless the orientation of the screen is changed, or you watch from an uncomfortable angle every time for prolonged sessions (you don’t want to visit a therapist every week).

Horizontal widescreen videos are much better as they’ve been designed for humans. Cinema evolved to 16:9 and 2.21:1 in the last few years for the same reason. Luckily, an iOS app has also been released to carter the gap. It goes by the name Horizon and it makes sure the video remains widescreen-horizontal: it does that by cropping parts that are not important.

Remember Mail Pilot? The web app that started out in 2012? It then hit the iOS a year later, and the Mac later on. It took an intuitive approach to managing emails to help users stay on track with what’s important and what’s not.

But the developer has taken things further by releasing Mail Pilot 2 for iPhone and iPad. It comes with a lot of new features including better gestures, enhanced navigation, iCloud sync and more. The user also gets to convert emails into to-do tasks to get things done sooner.
