Polymo screenshotPolymo is a brand-new video camera app for iPhone with some nice twists. It merely came out today, yet I’ve been testing it for a while and I can state that at its US$ 1.99 pricetag, it’s a truly glossy device to have.

This isn’t really a fancy image application with a bunch of filters, grids and other features. It’s a gesture-driven device for both taking and arranging your pictures. The primary concept is that it permits you enter tags just before you start shooting, and afterwards designates those tags to all of the photos in the current session.

This is terrific when you go to a social event or out for a walk. You could identify the pictures beforehand and know that you’ll have the ability to locate them when you wish them once more, rather than flipping endlessly through your cam roll.

Obviously, Polymo can also include tags in post, and it can import photos from the Camera Roll. Considering that iOS does not really offer any type of shareable tagging approaches, Polymo’s tags are presently only valid within the application.

You could browse your tags in two methods. First, you can search a listing of all your tags, which is helpful since you don’t always remember what mysterious word you may have used a year back. Secondly, certainly, you could type component of a tag name into a filter bar. Either means, you can construct tag criteria and narrow down your search. If you’re in the habit of creating sensible tag taxonomies with a defined power structure, that need to be simple …

I enjoy Polymo’s user interface because it’s minimal without being lazy, and since it makes excellent usage of motions. I do not like trying to touch small smash hit targets on my phone, so at any time I could just wipe displays aside and flick photos out of the means, I’m happy. You could tap-and-drag to pick several photos in the web browser, as well. It even has a one-finger zoom when watching pictures. Simply double-tap-and-hold, then wipe up and down to zoom the photo in and out.

Finally, if you have photos you wish to keeping safe from spying eyes (or Facebook, or the NSA …), Polymo has actually password-protected method you could allow for sure pictures.

It’s $ 1.99 and has some great ideas that are well implemented. Examine it out in the App Store.
