Taking photos with an iPad or any other tablet is a guaranteed way to make yourself look like a tool and to also probably get you punched in the face at a concert let alone ridiculed to complete shame–where you’ll then crawl into a corner and cry then blame your parents.

While it really isn’t that serious, you should know that Hipstamatic’s Oggl has updated to v2.1, and that it’s now on the iPad. The app, while quite excellent at rendering and editing images, is best used on a phone of some sort.

Amongst the new features are:

SurfMode: Sit back, relax and watch the show. With SurfMode, simply turn the device sideways to immediately see a beautiful cascade of images.

SurfMode on AirPlay: Weddings, concerts, dinner parties and beyond — present any Oggl feed to Apple TV for a live photo feed during events and occasions.

Notifications Ticker: Discover details about how many loves, reposts, and curations your photos get, including information from Instagram, Facebook, Flickr and more.

New Gear Shopping: Selecting new gear is easier than ever, with better previews and suggested Favorite combos.

New Live Previews: Select a new favorite combo, edit photos and browse presets more quickly and easily than before.

Improved Feed Browsing: quicker access to more information about photos you love.

While checking out photos from your iPad via Airplay is kind of cool, we’re not sure how many folks really do it and beam it to their Apple TV. I know for a fact that I’m usually too busy freaking out at the latest episode of House of Cards.

Please, for all that is holy, don’t take photos with an iPad. Instead, beam them to your device from your camera, and then edit on the iPad.
