I don’t usually get excited by viewer upgrades, but the new Firestorm Beta update immediately grabbed me the instant I went to take photos.
The upgrade has added filters, so that you can take photos and immediately give them a ‘mood’. Often, upgrades are more ‘back office’ stuff, bugs ironed out and don’t have a great deal of apparent change to the user, but this is very much ‘front office’ stuff that enhances the user experience. I think my photos are awful; flat and one-dimensional, but this new addition has managed to turn even me into a photographer of sorts…
It’s great when there are upgrades of this type that can enhance the user experience in obvious ways. Not that I’m suggesting bugs shouldn’t be ironed out, but Firestorm’s user friendly interface just got better for me! 🙂
