Trey Ratcliff is one of the most respected people in professional photography today. He pioneered the use of HDR (high dynamic range) to capture scenes in a lifelike way; he also writes one of the most detailed and well-composed tutorials for HDR on the Internet. Ratcliff is also known for some other side projects, like Stuck On Earth, a previously iPad-only app for exploring the world through photographs.

Ratcliff’s handy tool is now available on the Mac, and I’m going to take a look at how it fares in comparison to the iPad app. (more…)

If you’re an avid traveler, and especially if you’ve ever been in charge of planning a trip for multiple persons — your family’s summer vacation, perhaps — you know how important it is to have all the related information, such as your planned itinerary, handy at all times and neatly organized.

Today we’re going to be reviewing an app that can help you do just that. Keep your itinerary, contact information, documents, packing list, budget, expenses, photos, and anything else you might need, all in one place. It’s called YourtTrip. Let’s get to it!

We’ve just closed our giveaway, and would like to extend our congrats to our winners: Salim, Smash, Juan, Poporin, and Michael!

Sometimes planning a vacation can be so much work that it feels like more trouble than it’s worth. You’ve got to remember everything to pack — from sunscreen to extra space for souvenirs. You’ve got to budget your money to have a great time but end up broke halfway through your trip. You also should likely plan ahead for where you’ll stop on the way, and how you’ll spend your time so you’ll get the most out of your trip. And you’ll likely end up with ideas for new trips you’ll want to take in the future, and will want to keep up with them as well.

YourtTrip is the app your Mac needs to make this vacation season more fun. It can handle all of this and more, in a newly redesigned interface that makes it better than ever.

YourtTrip usually costs $19.99, but we’ve got 5 copies of the new YourtTrip to giveaway to our readers this week! Just leave a comment below and let us know where you’re planning on traveling this summer to enter our giveaway. Then, share our giveaway post on your favorite social network, and share a link to your post in a new comment below for an extra entry.

We’ll close the giveaway this Friday, May 3rd, so hurry and get your entry in!

Envato staff or those who have written more than two articles or tutorials for AppStorm are ineligible to enter.

Haven’t you ever dreamed about one day just out of nowhere pointing your finger at the globe and taking the next plane to the location that is selected? It’s a crazy idea, but we all have that adventurous side deep down that tells us to just go out and do it.

The app that we are reviewing today does that, sort of. It’s called KAYAK Explore and it uses the Kayak.com engine to help you find and book your next destination for a vacation. Let’s try it out!
