Ciel is a fantastic Windows Phone 8 app that lets you tag your images with location and weather information then share them on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram (via Instagraph) and check in with Foursquare. Templates for weather and location information can be applied to new images or existing photos stored in your Pictures Hub.
Ciel was recently updated to version 22.214.171.1240 to address some buggyness the last update created, fixes an Instagram sharing issue, and adds a few improvements to the overall performance, lens integration, and the saving/sharing algorithm.
The update also adds a few Ciel Store add-on templates that you can purchase to go along with the four basic templates that are included with the base app. Each add-on template will run $.99 and includes:
- A nine template Thai Ciel Starter Pack
- A fourteen template Chinese Ciel Pack
- A ten template Perspective by Studio 1 pack
- An eleven template Ciel Starter Pack.
The Ciel update brings a new user interface to the table and while I wouldn't have minded seeing labels on the new navigation buttons, the interface is a lot cleaner looking.
The last update made Ciel a little on the buggy side and it's nice to see the responsiveness of the developer to fix things. We've always seen Ciel as an outstanding Windows Phone 8 photography app and would easily recommend it to those looking to add weather and location templates to their photos.
Ciel is a free app for Windows Phone 8 and you can pick up your copy here in the Windows Phone Store.
