iOS5 Update and Pixoto.com

by Patrick Gervais

Hey there,

Ok so I upgraded to iOS5 Sunday night and all went well. No issues at all except for the audio source has switched to my Bluetooth device a few times while on a phone call even though my device was nowhere near me. I now turn off the Bluetooth service when I’m not in the car, saves the battery also. I am supposed to have access to the camera right from the locked screen but it isn’t always there for some reason. It is there at times but not always!! I tested it once when I saw the icon on the lock screen and was able to get into the camera & take a photo without unlocking the iPhone but was then able to access the iPhone without having to enter my passcode. Not good! I’ll have to look into this for sure.  I haven’t had time to really look into all the new features yet but will in time.

I recently discovered this new website www.pixoto.com from a friend. The site is new and in Beta testing but open to everyone from what I can tell. You upload your images and they get entered in a duel with other images in similar categories. They have a mobile category which is great. It’s free but you do need to vote in the photo duels to get credits to be able to upload more images. The quality of images is good and some of it is really amazing. You can also search for photographers in each category and I have discovered many that way. It’s fun so I recommend you give it a try. I’ve uploaded a few images and you can see them here if you like. Not all images I uploaded are iPhone shots.

That’s it for now.

Thanks for reading, Patrick
