Review: Flash Hero
Review: Flash Hero

Are you taking lots of photos with your iPhone, like me? Since iPhone version 3GS, I never take my conventional camera again, the quality of most pictures are more than fine. There are some exceptions of course. It must have come to your attention that the iPhone sucks for misses a flash, and therefore some of your (indoor) photos are not bright enough.

Flash Hero comes to rescue us with their new photo enhancement app. Let’s take a closer look at this app and see if it can replace the current iPhone photo program.

When you start Flash Hero you see the splash screen and some menu items in the bottom of your screen. The first time I did I was waiting for something to happen. After pressing the folder icon in the bottom left, it gave me the option to take a new picture or to use a photo that is already on my camera or photo album. Retouching photos afterwards is something not done so often. Maybe it is a good idea to replace your current photo icon with this one, take pictures with the app, so you retouch after every photo you take that needs it.

The second most important icon is the filter, where you will get the following options: 3 defaults of flash enhancement settings, which basically change the brightness of the picture. These settings can even be adjusted more with sliders if you are still not happy with the effect. The other effects are Black and White, Sepia, GreyTones, Posterize and invert.

When you are done with the changes, you can email the photo or store it on the iPhone.

At the time of writing version 2.0 is already released. They have improved the user interface in this release, which was my only concern in the old edition.

Conclusion: Asasa Software did a good job in giving the iPhone a better photo application. It can certainly improve the quality of your dark (indoor) photos and or add special filter effects to them. For $.99 the price is also right.
