Photoverse is an app designed for both iPhone and iPad (there is an Android version in the works apparently). The screenshot above is of the iPhone version. It is basically a curated list of good photography blogs and web stuff and more than worth the 99¢ asking price.
In the words of the developers :
As photographers, we find that we are in a constant search to gather information that is photography related, be it reviews of the latest gear that we have been wanting to buy or tips and tricks to take you further along into becoming a better photographer. We too have spent hours browsing multiple websites and blogs to glean the information that we want. And that was how Photoverse was born.
Photoverse collects information from multiple news sources and blogs related to photography, pools them and presents them to you in an easy to read scrollable list. It enables you to can choose the view you want to see, be it from a single news source or blog or a time-sorted collection from multiple sources that you can select. All pages are rendered locally within a web view so that you never have to leave the application. Photoverse also allows you to share any interesting article you read via twitter, facebook or email. It even allows you to bookmark articles for later perusal.

Photoverse can be purchased on iTunes from this page. The above screenshot is from the itunes page and as you may have spotted, MP101 is one of the web sites covered – Yay!! (or something like that).
It is a real timesaver as the curation element makes finding interesting photography writing and images much easier to find. I also really like the simple but stylish interface and the fact that there are not too many bells and whistles. I get the impression that this is one app that does precisely what it is supposed to do.
