MonoPhix (App Store Link) has been one of the most evolved -Phix apps we built to date. When something is finally rich in features, you can cut some features away and make it available for free and that’s what we did. With MonoPhix lite (App Store Link) you can now finally enjoy high contrast adjustable black & white filtering for free on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
MonoPhix lite is practically the same as MonoPhix, it converts your iPhone’s pictures to Monochrome at full resolution, but with a few changes :
-The sliders which enabled you to control light and dark shades separately have now been merged into one contrast slider
-The Presets to set the depth or contrast with one touch are missing
-The ability to use sepia and antique filters in addition to the black & white filter are missing
-There’s an ad displayed in the startup screen to allow people to upgrade to full MonoPhix
We will release a new version of 36-image converter, a week earlier than scheduled. Version 4.4.4 is quite an important release, it enables us to quickly import new functions without having to make any changes to the interface. This will speed up the development of a 36-image converter with frames and photoshop-like improvements.
36IC 4.4.4 will also contain a new brush-function which will replace the pencil tool. This also means that V4.4.4 will come with a few brushes to start with. The color selection functions are split as well, there is an extra button which will enable a color picker to select a color from the image. Also the text function is finally out of the BETA stage.
The new release will also come with an update of the DashBoard and the help file.
We would also like to announce that 36IC 4.4.3 is now #21 in popularity on download.com in the category “Image editing” leaving Ulead and Fireworks far behind it, we hope to top the 1.600 downloads a week next week. 36-image converter will also appear in PC magazine in Italy, a magazine with 45.000 subscriptions and a high sales rate.
