Looking for a way to nearly instantly share photos online with your friends? Take a look at ProShare, which lets you send a photo to Facebook, Flickr and others almost the instant you snap them. Today’s list also sees details on Vogue, an iPad app that takes you behind the magazine’s cover features, and Tuner, which makes your iPhone capable of helping to tune just about any musical instrument. Read on below for details.

Vogue (iPad) $0.99

An iPad app devoted specifically to its cover features, Vogue gives you direct access to the celebrities that appear in the iconic magazine’s big main images. As a companion to its cover pieces, Vogue is filled with exclusive content all about a single celebrity each month.

Lady GaGa is featured in the current edition of the Vogue app, and you’ll get video from the cover shoot and still outtakes from it, as well. You can read the cover feature, and even listen to the audio diary of Vogue journalist Jonathan van Meter, which he recorded while following Lady GaGa backstage at several events in order to gather research for the story. All the app’s content is unique to it and to Vogue, so if you’re a celebrity junky or a Vogue fan, this is one for you.

ProShare (iPhone) Free

Sharing photos is super-easy with ProShare, a social networking photo app that can instantly send pictures you snap on your iPhone to your favorite social networking sites, including Facebook, Picasa and Flickr. The app has a simple user interface to make choosing which photos to upload a very qiuck experience.

ProShare allows you to pick through your photos and pull the ones you don’t like from your upload. The app also supports social networking features, such as leaving notes and comments on photos. Once you’ve added a comment, it gets uploaded right alongside the image.

Tuner (iPhone) $0.99

It doesn’t get much simpler than this. Tuner is an app that allows you to use your iPhone to tune lots of different kinds of musical instruments. The app just listens to the sound of your instrument, using the iPhone’s microphone, when you’re tuning it nearby, then indicates when you’ve got your instrument tuned properly.

There are a couple of useful additions to Tuner that make using it easier. Sure, the app will listen to your instrument and help you tune just about anything. But it can also filter out background noises — just how much is determined by a slider you can manipulate. It all amounts to a simple to use tuning app which purports to be all you’ll ever need. For a buck, it’s not hard to determine if that’s true.
