A few weeks ago, we added two new iPhone/iPad apps to our mobile app family. Like a true family gathering, we’ve had warm responses and (virtual) hugs all around. Here are some of our favorite quotes and images.
Noir tells a cinematic story with your photo. Transform your iPhone/iPad photos with beautiful, dramatic lighting and instant results.
“The results are pretty stunning and look to be able to transform boring everyday shots into moody movie masterpieces.” — The Next Web, Matthew Panzarino, read more
“I’ve already fallen in love with Noir – a universal app for giving your photos a cinematic look by converting the image to black and white or a tinted monochrome and adding dramatic lighting.” — TUAW, Chris White, read more
We started a new Flickr group that is already bursting with Noir awesomeness, like the image shown below. Check it out.

Plastic Bullet is an iPhone app with infinite possibilities. Put the fun, spontaneity and surprise of plastic-fantastic toy cameras with organic colors, vignettes, blurs, glows and light leaks.
“I then imported the picture to the Plastic Bullet app, which applied random vignetting and color shifts. It’s one of my favorite apps, because each time the image is processed, a unique, non-reproducible photo is generated.” — The Bay Citizen, John Curley, read more
“Plastic Bullet for iPhone is one of those apps that can really bring a smile to your face… If you’d like a very simple app that creates some really nice shots Plastic Bullet is easily worth it.” — iOS Photo Apps blog, read more
