There a countless apps in AppStore for editing photos that allow to do anything from cropping and rotating to changing color, adding textures, changing backgrounds,or taking that photo of you in your living room and making it look like you spent the weekend at the Pyramids. Although all these are great and some are really fun, some cost money and ironically, the novelty outweighs the convention making them not worth to some people. #PhotoEdit adds a very simple tool to your native Photo app.
Just take a picture. Open photos and find the pic you need to edit.
Tap the button at bottom left that prompts you to Share/Use as Wallpaper/Assign To Contact but now your notice a new Option at the top.


Tap the “Edit” button and your photo will open in another screen smaller with your wallpaper visible.
In this screen you’ll see a few buttons along bottom of screen.
Two half circles with arrows on the end at bottom left. These are the “Clockwise” and “Counter-wise” buttons, (no explanation needed.)

To the right of those buttons there is an arrow pointing left, (this is the Undo button.) This will only UNDO the last action and only the last action.
The other button is an arrow coming out of a square and shooting to the right.

This button allows you to change the color to either “Grayscale” or “Sephia.”



It’s so great when a developer creates something to add to our native apps that should be there from day one. Why the Apple either misses these things or just flat-out refuses to add them or sees no use for them still confuses me. Although I suppose it does always give them a new toy to add to future firmwares. After all, many of these tweaks that have “compromised the functionality of the device” in the past may seem familiar to you. Folders, Backgrounder, Wallpaper, the list goes on.

This week we see yet another tweak added to in the BigBoss repo by Evan Coleman, follow Evan on twitter (@edc1591). Speed for Maps is for iPhone ONLY and requires iOS4+ and although it could easily sell for $0.99, it is FREE.

Speed adds a small black circle to the bottom of your native Maps app and displays your speed. There is no icon added to your home screen and it can be changed to display in MPH (miles per hour), FPS (feet per second), KM/H (kilometers per hour), MPS (meters per second), or even Knots (kts) for those traveling by sea.
