Apple Photos Now Available (And Aperture Isn’t)

Apple just released its long-awaited Photos app to the public (a beta was available recently that people could sign up for). You can get the application by simply updating your copy of your OS to OS 10.10.3 (use the Apple menu and choose App Store). You can also find the update here.

Aperture is Dead (Really)

As forewarned, Apple did remove Apple Aperture from release simultaneously. You can no longer get Apple Aperture from the Mac App Store. If you try and visit http://www.apple.com/Aperture you are redirected to the Apple Photos Page. The Apple Store page also redirects. So yes, Aperture is no longer a thing.
