So I spent an hour-and-a-half escaping the Apple ID login doom loop, where I forgot my password, and where Apple could only send the replacement password to the account whose password I had forgotten. So, spandy new Apple ID — thank you, Yahoo, for keeping it simple — which doesn’t automagically work for iCloud and which doesn’t automagically work for the Store and which doesn’t automagically work for upgrading apps, even after the Apple ID, the iCloud account, and the Store account have been changed. And then, if there’s a more head-desk-pounding experience than tapping one’s way through five separate registration procedures, including a credit card form with Captcha, I’m not sure what it is. Snarl. Clue stick, Apple: Keep account information in one place.

Naturally, or as a result of conditioning, after frustration, one shops. So, after saying only yesterday that I didn’t want any new apps, I got some. Apple made a liar out of me!

Anyhow, Camera Boost is supposed to do a lot of things, but one thing it did very nicely, right out of the box, was improve night pictures. The above is After. Below, with the default Camera app, is Before.

It’s going to be fun taking pictures at dusk in the summer, when the colors are rich. Light extension, instead of season extension.
