Pictures and BlackBerry have never really taken that next step like Android software smartphones or iPhones have. Developers haven’t gone without trying. There’s plenty of quality BlackBerry filter apps, fun picture apps, clip-art apps. But it wasn’t until Chad Tetreault ‘Director of Operations’ at mblware sent me an early beta of LensBoost till I truly felt excited about my BlackBerry Camera!
LensBoost gets me excited about locations, times of day, parks, large groups of people, family photos.. I could go on forever about it. All my photos used to be of BlackBerry themes, app buttons, wallpapers on my homescreen. Basically screenshots only. I hated taking photos of anything with the camera because I never felt they looked good enough to me. And I’m still just as critical, but now I can see things more in the simplest shots. This app doesn’t take 2 and a half minutes to load a filter either. It’s nearly instant. The big win for me is the sharing option. Pushing my shots to Twitter, BBM (including the profile pic), and Facebook are awesome! Talking about it just makes me want to take some shots in low light right now.
Let’s face it apps like this don’t come around often. Especially for BlackBerry smartphones. mblware has been patient and careful not to rush the process. I’m sure we’ll be talking about LB for a long time to come. Now pull out your 2 bucks and get your own copy!
