Two interesting developments hit the App Store over the weekend, as Google's new Photowall app lets iPhone owners beam photos from their handset to their TV using the company's Chromecast streaming stick, while Loopy HD is now 50% off after being featured on The Tonight Show.

Google Photowall

Google Photowall for Chromecast is a simple app that allows iPhone owners to turn their Chromecast-equipped television into a crowdsourced, interactive pinboard. After launching a photowall using the app, anyone connected to the same network can beam additional photos to the display instantaneously.

Users can also make simple annotations to photos before posting them using the app's built-in painting tools. At the end of the photowall session, users can have a video of every photo automatically generated and uploaded to YouTube for sharing.

Google Photowall for Chromecast version 1.0 is available now as a free, 2.9-megabyte download from the App Store.

Loopy HD

Loopy HD

Loopy HD is a software looping app that allows users to record and mix multitrack audio on the iPad using a simple interface. After the app was featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, developers A Tasty Pixel are offering a 50 percent discount on Loopy HD for a limited time.

Users can work with up to twelve loops at once, and the app offers MIDI control support as well as support for beat multiples and fractions. Users can import loops from their computer or record them live, and the app supports full stereo audio.

Additionally, Loopy HD will work with any Audiobus-enabled app as well as others that support audio copy-and-paste.

Loopy HD version 1.4.7 is available now as a $3.99, 14.4-megabyte download from the App Store.
