As speculation surrounding the second iteration of Apple’s 7.9-inch tablet continues to swirl, members of the WeiPhone message boards have this week shared a number of photos depicting – what they claim – is the rear aluminum shell of Apple’s second-generation iPad mini.
Launching this week, Filters! is one for the Instagram generation. Featuring ‘world-leading’ photo filters developed by camera lens manufacturer Formatt Hitech, the app (much like the firm’s physical camera filters), has been designed to provide ‘stills’ photographers with further versatility when taking photos on-the-go, while also providing creative capabilities and editing effects without the need to be back at the studio.
Well, it looks like the guys over at the “world’s best photography” site, 500px, have indeed managed to rectify the alleged ‘explicit’ image issue it ran into recently, as the application is, (as of today), available for download on the iTunes App Store – (again).
Updating in November to support Apple’s iPhone 5, premium photo-sharing service 500px was pulled from the iTunes App Store earlier this week, after an Apple spokesperson released a statement which suggested the company had received a number of complaints from users, relating to the app seemingly giving easy access to ‘nude’ photos, and (possible) pornography.
Instagram almost needs no introduction nowadays. The photo-sharing service took just 3-months to hit its first 1 Million users, reaching its second million in just 6-months. Originally created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, Instagram originally launched in October 2010, and it didn’t take long for the big players to want a piece of its mobile photo pie. With just 13 employees at the time, social giant Facebook approached Systrom and Krieger with a proposition to purchase Instagram and keep it operating separately from itself. On September 6, 2012, that deal closed successfully, bagging Instagram and its co-founders close to $1 Billion, and Facebook a new photo-sharing service complete with reported stock options.
