DIG OUT THOSE RETRO PHOTOS

Get­ting old prints into dig­i­tal form is more has­sle than it’s worth. Like the orig­i­nal, Unfade 2 makes it su­per-sim­ple to cap­ture (phys­i­cal) photos us­ing your iOS de­vice – whether iPhone or iPad.

Lay pic­tures on a well-lit sur­face and the app au­to­mat­i­cally takes each shot and crops the edges for you. The app is now free, but only for the first 20 scans, and lacks most of the cool stuff from the pre­vi­ous paid edi­tion. You can still get these good­ies with a one-time in-app pur­chase of the Pro up­grade for $10.99, which is worth every cent, and the up­date is free for own­ers of the orig­i­nal. Pro adds au­to­matic im­age en­hance­ment, plus 25 other slick Instagram-style fil­ters. There are still no im­age-edit­ing tools be­yond ro­tate and crop, how­ever.

Other fea­tures in­clude the abil­ity to add a ti­tle, place and date to in­di­vid­ual pic­tures or an en­tire al­bum. iCloud sup­port en­ables photos scanned on one de­vice to sync ev­ery­where else (in­clud­ing Mac and PC), although the app tends to be slow at do­ing so.
