Windows Phone 8 photography app Ciel updated, adds Lens Integration


Ciel is a Windows Phone 8 photography app that lets you place a template over your pictures that details your location and current weather. It's a nifty way to show off how nice (or miserable) the weather is where ever you may be.  Additionally, Ciel has direct sharing support for Facebook, Foursquare and Tumblr to let you share the good (or bad) weather with your friends without having to leave the app.

An update was pushed out this morning for Ciel, lifting it to version 2.7. The most notable change with the update is the addition of Lens integration.

Sample Ciel Image

That is you can now access Ciel from the Lens feature in your Windows Phone 8 camera app that pulls up integrated photo apps. This makes accessing the ten template styles more convienent while snapping pictures.

If you haven't tried Ciel out, it is a free app for your Windows Phone 8 device and you can snatch it up here in the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, Justin, for the tip!

Windows Phone 8 photography app Ciel updated, adds Lens Integration


Downloading. I already paid for PhotoPlace Pro, but it has too many bugs. Hoping this one is better. I already have one request: I'd like to have the option for aspect ratios other than InstaSquare.

Is it just me or is everyone having problems downloading the app?
Initially I tried updating, but then deleted the app and tried downloading it again.
Keep getting c101a006.

It has this stupid bug "Allow program to post on behalf of you" on Facebook.

Very annoying... It should post what I want it to post, not anything from developer.

Program seemed OK, but when I hit Skip on the post thing, it didn't post my photo.

Deleted the program...
