Adobe ups Revel photo storage to 2GB, PCalc gets a new coreFamily photo sharers now have more room to upload photos for free after Adobe increased the storage limit for its Revel service, while popular universal calculator app has received a major update that includes a new calculator core.
Adobe's popular multimedia upload and sharing service, Revel, now grants free users 2 gigabytes of space, a substantial increase from the previous limit of 50 photos or videos per month it previously imposed. The $5.99 monthly upgrade — available as an in-app purchase — remains unchanged and removes the cap completely.
Adobe also made tweaks to the app's user interface that it believes make Revel easier to use, as well as addressing various bugs. Revel's hallmark synchronization, backup, and organizational features continue to work in the same way.
Adobe Revel version 2.3 is available now as a free, 53.7-megabyte download from the App Store.
Long one of the App Store's most popular offerings, PCalc for iOS now sports the same calculator code as its desktop cousin. The developers have also added a slew of new features, including smart searching for conversions, constants, and functions as well as the ability to use bitwise operators and get and set values on the clipboard.
Additional modifications in the new version include new themes, new notes functionality, a "last" key in algebraic mode, trend arrows for currency, as well as support for hex, octal, and binary functions. Additionally, a number of bugs dealing with negative fractions, drawing errors, and pasting problems have been addressed.
PCalc version 3.2 is available now as a $9.99, 9-megabyte download from the App Store.
