The Guardian Eyewitness for iPad: Stupendously Stunning Photography


The iPad’s rich display is great for viewing pictures, but personal pictures from iPhoto can only go so far. The Guardian Eyewitness app, documents each day’s major news event in a picture. Just one perfect image, with a little caption. And it really shines on the iPad. The experience is nothing like viewing their site in a browser (where you’d much rather just head over to 9gag and watch some funnies instead). The colours on the iPad look so rich, the UI is fantastic. Tap to bring up the caption and controls, or hide them away and just swipe through.

Amazingly, the app is a free download, can be used offline, and even shows photographer tips (it’s sponsored by Canon). It’s currently one of my favourite demo apps.
