I discovered this PureShot app after reading a review on the iPhoneography website and to be honest i wasn’t convinced. Until i tried it. I’m blown away by the quality of the images that it produces. I took several pictures with both iPhones default camera and also PureShot and in every picture Pureshot seems sharper and retains more detail – especially noticeable on Pips nose and the highlights on her eyes, the details of these were slightly smudged on iPhones default camera.
Really pleased with it and it’s now become my default camera app. Can’t wait to try it out with Olloclip!
PHILIPS DS8550/10 Fidelio Docking Speaker for iPad/iPhone/iPod
Do yourself a favour and avoid this. It was meant to be a Christmas present to me so i’m glad i tried it out first! Before i get to the annoying habits/faults the first thing i noticed when i switched the dock on was the sound quality and i really don’t think it’s that great. I can hear a great deal of hissing and popping noises on a lot of songs (something that’s mentioned a lot on the Amazon US reviews i’ve since discovered) – i’ve tried several files from normal quality mp3 to very high quality, all of which play crystal clear on all my other devices but it’s there on most songs on this dock.
When you power on the dock it rams the volume up really loud even though your ipad/iphone was on its lowest setting so you’re left scrambling for the volume. Also it just randomly switches itself off half way through songs for no apparent reason. I read that it also randomly switches itself on too at high volume. Not at all what you expect for a £200 dock. So i’m sending it back and i won’t bother with a replacement – at least not a Phillips one.
