Hereâ€™s good news for iPhone photography hobbyists. If you do have an eye for photography or rather visually stimulating image and are tired of using Instagram, Ultravisual might be all what you could ask for. This emerging social networking photography app enables its users to upload and edit photos and videos without worrying over the square aspect ratio. So, donâ€™t give up on your skill of taking expressive and thought-provoking images if you donâ€™t have a DSLR , rather nurture your talent through this smart-app.
Hereâ€™s a quick review of this app-
This app is exclusively designed to allow its users to explore user uploads with a tinge of high visual stimulation. Each category reflects full imagery and stylish fonts that compliment the creative pieces. You can find media significantly featured everywhere in the design of this app.
The comprehensive suite of sections contained in this app are-
- Feed- images from your recent uploads and from the users you are following
- Your collections- list of curated collections youâ€™re following
- The in-app camera- adds new media
- Upload editor- contains many editing options
- Profile page- your account reflecting your name and shared uploads
It enables you to easily walk through different sections by tapping the banner at the bottom of your screen.
To get started, you must first sign in by either registering yourself or logging in through Facebook. Here you go! Once you are connected, you are supposed to select a few collections to follow, which are categorized artistically to serve the different tastes of individuals. You can add as many topics of interest in your collections.
Tap the big white button at the bottom of your screen to click a picture. To make a video clip, simply hold the big white button till it turns red. Then, release it once youâ€™re done.
If you want to import photos from your Phone, just go to the editor section of the app. Tap the word â€śImportâ€ť at the top of your screen to gain access to your Phoneâ€™s camera roll. Isnâ€™t it quite easy? Once the images are imported, you can begin editing them.
You can also edit videos. This app categorizes videos into smaller clips so as to enable you to cut them short, delete them, or add desired captions to various sections.
To share videos and photographs with the world out there, simply tap the â€śShareâ€ť button at the bottom of your screen when you are actively editing your creative piece.
To see your activity log, find out the number of collections you have, and check the ones youâ€™re following. Here, you can notice who has started following you or added one of your collections to their own page. You can also invite others to collaborate on a common collection with you to make your experience more enriching.
The good part!
It will allow you to launch your own mix of photos and videos, instead of going blindly for quick snapshots of selfies.
And the bad part follows!
The editing bit is confusing. The video how-to guide is not present in a very comprehensive fashion. Moreover, it doesnâ€™t allow you to search for things based on keywords. Youâ€™ll either have to enter a preexisting hash tag related to your search or a username.
This app is absolutely free to download and use, and is completely devoid of any in-app purchases or annoying advertisement banners.
So, if youâ€™re simply tired of Instagram, you should try this app once to emanate pure pleasure of your leisure pursuit- photography.
