Monday Must Have: Everlapse

Recently life seems to have been flying past me, I guess that’s what happens when you’ve got some kind of big life event on like moving house! Despite that I managed to spot this on Twitter, (via DesignMom) and thought it was worth sharing.

Everlapse is a nifty little app that creates a highlights reel of your 20 most liked Instagram snaps (that’s what you can see up there at the top of this post) that you can share across social media, via email or embed as I have done on the blog.

Where it comes into it’s own however is the way you can download the actual Everlapse app (the above trick is done by signing in online via Instagram) and then create your own showreels. As a blogger I quite fancied doing this for my next monthly round up – it’s quick easy and a little bit more fun than a static image, although I guess it may have issues for those with slower connections. You can embed the reels you make via the app to a website, or share them on twitter. For now, if you’re not a blogger and want this for personal use, I can see it lending itself really well to making showreels of perhaps a monthly baby shot to post on facebook for a baby birthday, or maybe anything your want to show the progress of, a diy project or decorating job?

What do you think readers? Go and have a litle play!

Found: Picfx

Now, you know I like a gadget here at Florence Finds. Not only do I love my iPhone (which Victoria kindly reviewed when the 4S was released,) but I’m addicted to Instagram. You guys see my monthly round ups courtesy of my almost daily Instagram snaps and now I’ve found something that makes your Instagram pics even prettier. Or just your random snapshots for that matter. It’s the best iPhone App I’ve found in ages and it’s called Picfx.

Just like Instagram, or Hipstamatic for that matter, it lets you digitally adjust your images with filters, effects and frames for a vintage, artistic, or just outrageously pretty look. I’ve used the same image of my bedside table throughout this post so you can see the difference and each one is labelled with the name of the effect I used on it.


Red Grunge and Space, Nebula

I’m totally obsessed with the prettiness of some of the amazing shots you can take, and I am soooo excited about using it to capture my holiday snaps and share with you all. It fully integrates (with no faffing around,) with Instagram, twitter, your email and other social networks.


Classics, Sheen and Valentine

This one’s my personal favourite… Bokeh :)


Light effect – Bokeh 4

So, do you like it readers? You can get Picfx from the app store. I splashed out, it’s £1.49 but I defy you not to love it!
