How To Take Fun Photos With Your Date & Turn Them Into Masterpieces Together

categories: Date Idea

This is part of our SmartPhone Date Video Series, where Olga and I let you know about SmartPhone applications that we have used as the basis for awesome dates together.  In the video above, you’ll see how we spent an afternoon at the beach taking photos with our iPhones and then an evening editing them with a few of our favorite iPhone photo apps.   It is truly incredible how far technology has come in the past handful of years that such a high-quality HD camera can be embedded in your phone.  And with the help of photo application developers, with just a few swipes someone with no photo expertise can apply filters and effects to create photos that professional photograhers would have difficulty reproducing in a dark room.  Simply amazing!   Here are links to the apps we showcase in the video above:

  • ColorSplash lets you quickly and easily give photos a dramatic look by converting them to black and white, while keeping your chosen details in color. This effect draws the viewers’ attention to the colored areas, creating striking images. [Developer Website; $0.99 in the iTunes App store.]
  • FX Photo Studio turns your iPhone into a fantastic photo editing studio that allows you to mix and tune its nearly 200 filters.   There are many great camera apps, but in our opinion, this one offers the most bang for your buck by far. [Developer Website; $1.99 in the iTunes App store.]
Special FREE Offer for Datevitation Community ($39.99 value)  – If you want to take your photo creativity to the next level, you have to check out FX Photo Studio PRO for Mac, the newest (and most powerful) member of the FX Photo Studio Family.  Normally $39.99 in the Mac App store, FX Photo Studio has generously offered free copies to the Datevitation community!  To claim you free copy, just do the following:

How many times have you sat in a movie theater in pain because your bladder is full but you don’t want to leave and miss a crucial moment of the movie? Well, with the RunPee app, you and your date can use the restroom without worrying about missing a beat.  Essentially, RunPee tells you the ideal times to use the restroom, and while you are out, you can read the summary of what happened so that you can return to your seat without being lost.   Check out our video above.  This is one of those things you have to see to believe!

You can find more about the app at the RunPee website, which is currently available for FREE in the iTunes, Android, and Windows app stores.

The Best Way To Surprise Your Loved Ones Next Time You Are Out Of Town

categories: Date Idea, SmartPhone Dates, Travel

Everyone loves receiving postcards.  But the experience of sending a postcard leaves much to be desired.  First, there’s the hassle of finding a souvenir shop and picking out the postcard.  Then, you have to deal with postage and finding a mailbox to send it.   Well, not anymore!  Olga and I recently discovered an app called Postcard On The Run, which makes it incredibly easy to take a photograph from your iPhone, Android, Nokia or Windows phone and instantly send it as a real printed postcard to anywhere in the world.  What do you think your friends and family would prefer hanging on the refrigerator — some generic photo of the Eiffel Tower or a photograph of you standing in front of the Eiffel Tower?   Continue reading >
