Google Phone app now comes with Spam Caller Blocking

google phone

We have all heard of TrueCaller, especially in the third world countries where telemarketing and other such nuisances are a significant irritant. You must have faced it yourself. You are waiting for an urgent call, perhaps an interview call from a company, a call from your boss or even a call that would remove your “single” status! Suddenly a call comes but you find yourself talking to somebody offering you insurance or loans or credit cards. It might make anybody flip out especially if they are busy. That is why caller id software which warns you beforehand. Google has identified this problem as a major one which users should not have to face and therefore, has come up with an app called the Google Phone which will identify spam callers and will warn you.

It is not like there are no laws regarding this. Most countries have actual laws about telecalling and telemarketing, but the implementation and enforcement of these laws are a big question. They are in place, but no stringent action is taken regarding them as these callers keep on finding ways to get to users even if they are barred from calling. New generation Android phones and Nexus handsets all will come with this ability to detect spam callers inbuilt in them. Even Apple with its iOS 10 software release promises such a system.

How does Google Phone work?

Google, which has the biggest database of businesses worldwide, will offer excellent protection with its thorough knowledge and it will identify potential spam callers from user feedback. When such a number calls your phone, the screen will go a dark red and the name Suspected Spam Caller will light up on your screen. After the call, whether you pick up or not, you can decide what to do with the number. You can either block it, or you can approve it if you need it later.

This feature is inbuilt with many Android and Nexus devices, but if you desire it, then you can get it for your phone as an app instead of waiting for Google to push it to your device. The current version is 4.0.127222140.

The real deal is here: Prisma available on Android!

prisma for android download

One of the two most viral apps now, Prisma has finally arrived on the Android scene in a complete and well-rounded form. In other words, it is officially available on the Android app store. No more beta versions and the associated niggles and glitches. This app made by the Russian Prisma Labs came out in the iStore at first. But, with its resounding success, the developers made up their minds to launch it for as many platforms as possible. The Android beta version was first released. But as is the case with most beta versions or the “yet to be fully developed versions” it had some drawbacks. Considering the multitudes of photo editing apps, this app would just have been another one, but it has some qualities that have augmented its popularity in a short time.

SO WHAT IS PRISMA ALL ABOUT?

For the uninitiated, Prisma is primarily a photo-editing app. You might say that there are other app like this, so why choose Prisma? Well, this app has a unique feature that other apps do not provide. It edits photos in an offbeat way. Offbeat as in, after a Prisma edit, your photo will look like it has been painted by a master painter. It derives this art style from the great masters Picasso and Van Gogh. Impression, Curtain, Running in the storm, and Mondrian are some of the many filters that you will get, unlike the filters in other apps like Black and White, Sepia, Twilight, etc.

Only filters have not made Prisma what it is currently. There are other factors that have also worked to its advantage. One of the biggest is that in spite of turning pictures into complex works of art, its user interface is relatively straightforward and easy to use. You just have to pick a picture to edit and then select the perfect filter to apply. It will take some time to work the magic, so be patient. You could also use the in-app Prisma camera to make your capture and edit process more streamlined and smooth. The ability to share the photos on social media easily makes Prisma the all-in-one app that everyone desires.

A note to make is that, sometimes, while using the app you may get a message that reads, “Too many people using Prisma right now.” Do not fret too much about that since the message will go away and the app will start working normally after a short time. It happens because the Prisma developers obviously did not anticipate such popularity and now they are short of servers to support the pressure. Prisma is an app that has been fixed in the most downloaded app list since its inception. Over 500 million photos have been edited using the app and it has been downloaded over 10 million times with a figure of more than 2 million daily users, according to statistics.

The popularity of the iOS app which was released first made Android users shout out for an Android version of the same and now it has been officially released, so go ahead and enjoy!

cool ar apps

It is useless to ask if you know about Pokemon Go. This viral app has been creating waves since the day it was launched and at present is one of the most downloaded games in the history of apps, be it Android or iOS. A unique feature about Pokemon go is that it relies on Augmented Reality to function. You may not be knowing that Augmented Reality has been in place for making apps since a long time back. Pokemon Go is not the only AR app that is available on the market right now, but it has certainly enhanced the popularity of AR apps and is currently making a foundation for more such apps to come through.

So let us take a look at some other cool AR apps that are currently available in app stores right now.

Cool AR Apps other than Pokemon Go:

  1. Blippar– Blippar is one such app that helps in really knowing the world around you by ‘blipping’ objects. It is an educational app that provides you information about everyday things and materials that you encounter. For instance, if you fire up the app and point it towards your dog then the app will immediately provide you information about what a dog is, how it came into being, the breed of the dog and so on. Blippar also has its own publication called the Brainspace Magazine which when viewed using Blippar might surprise you with some amazing pictures and animation and videos jumping right out of the page!
  2. Ingress– Niantec, the company which made Pokemon Go also made a game called Ingress which is quite similar to Pokemon go but is more complex in its gameplay. Both of these games are based on AR and the difference between them is that while Pokemon involves capturing Pokemons Ingress is all about getting portals scattered in the world. Ingress revolves around creating a territory along with your team. The bigger your territory is, the higher you rank.
  3. Yelp– Yelp, also called Monocle, maybe the oldest AR app ever. It debuted in the iStore store seven years ago. It works on the principle of a map but with the help of your smartphone camera. If you fire up the app and point it towards any shop or establishment, you will see a rating, the kind of service the establishment offers, contact information and much more.

Razer Go, the new Pokemon Go chat messenger

razer go

You must be playing Pokemon Go. If you are not, then, you are missing out on one of the most viral games, ever. Pokemon gym trainers are currently ruling the world! If you have not heard of the game, then you at least must be knowing the original Pokemon TV series. Remember Ash Ketchum and his two friends who went on journeys together to catch Pokemons and battle with other Pokemon trainers. This game is basically a simulation of the TV series with the user becoming a gym trainer with Pokemons. It also promotes fitness and exercise because the aim of the game is to catch Pokemons, which in turn can be done by roaming around on streets. This game is so popular because it uses augmented reality to promote itself. You may find it a bit incredulous roaming around on streets, but I promise you that catching a Pokemon on the street is way more fun that you may not have ever imagined.

The fantastic thing about the game is that although it is based on virtual gaming, it also has some relation to the real world. I mean to say that you may just find a Pokemon prancing about in your bathroom or your office or even in the backseat of your car which makes it a fascinating and exciting proposition and one that is full of suspense as to where you will find the next Pokemon. The game is a very innovative one but like everything in the world it also has a bad side. It is very addictive and drains the phone battery like anything.  While playing the game people have also ended up in dangerous areas and also there were reports of violence when two or more players converged on a single location to pick up a Pokemon and got into an argument as to who rightfully owned it.

However, that did not stop anybody from playing the game and making it even more popular. The game has not been officially launched in all countries. It is only available for a few select countries now while the developers are working on increasing the reach of the game. Due to the developers not anticipating this kind of viral popularity, the game has not been able to reach out to every corner of the world, officially. It is being done in stages with the developers increasing the number of servers drastically to keep up with the increasing pressure caused due to its popularity. The game also has some shortcomings that other developers are overcoming by creating their own Mods and Hacks. From catching Pokemons while sitting at home to monitoring and hatching Poke-eggs with zero effort, there are every possible mods that the game now possesses, albeit unofficially. The latest among these unofficial hacks and mods is the Razer Go chat messenger which is an instant messaging app that Pokemon Go users can use to communicate with each other because the official app does not have one.

Razer Go, the new Pokemon Go chat messenger:

This new chat app that Pokemon Go users can use has been made by a developer called Razer. It is called Razer Go, and it will enable users to communicate with each other while playing the game. Razer Go web browser version recently launched on July 21st while its Android and IOS version will be out on July 25th. This chat is impressive because the developer has taken a lot into account while making it. Going by the popularity of the app there are three modes that users can use to chat with other players. The three modes include a local one which will enable players to communicate within an area of 3 miles; then there is a regional chat which will bring in players spread over 60 miles and the last one is a global mode which will include Pokemon Go users from all over the world. They will also be regional beacons which players can unlock to get chat rooms when they come upon it. All chats will be of 3 types. While one will be public, the other will be a team chat and the last one will be a private chat.

The RazerGo chat app seemingly appears to be a very impressive one with its array of features, but there are some apprehensions that users currently have about this app, the biggest of which is the extent to which it will blend seamlessly with the official version of the game.

Google Camera comes out with Pause feature during video recording

Google Camera

A camera, as we all know is imperative for today’s smartphone generation. With the continuous evolution of smartphones, the camera has gained a very prominent position in the hardware of a smartphone. A greater increase in importance is of camera apps which have become indispensable for the functioning of a smartphone camera. There are many such camera apps that are popular right now, but people are gunning for those apps that come with cameras pre-installed in them. The biggest and perhaps the most famous of all these apps is Instagram, but there is also a new app on the horizon which is giving Instagram a run for his money. This is the newest viral app in town called Prisma. Following up close is a new competitor which will compete with these two in the days to come. Yes, I am talking about Google Camera.

The Google Camera was launched in 2014 and has since gone through a massive number of updates. The number of updates, however, did not make it very special like the other famous camera apps. Since the start of editing software for camera photos, people started yearning for editing apps with in-app cameras. The Google camera app did not make any noticeable waves after its inception because it did not have any special features which would attract users to download and use it. Google, however, seems to have learnt its lesson and has now come up with a new and exciting feature that not many apps can boast of. The new and most recent Android software called Android Nougat, or Android N will feature the Google Camera with video pausing ability. Users can fire up the app and start recording videos on it. The interesting thing is that if the user feels the need he or she can pause the video recording and then resume it later. This feature is the one that the smartphone generation wanted for a long time, and it is finally here, thanks to Google camera.

How to use the Google Camera?

So how do you use this feature? As soon as you start recording your video, you will notice an extra button on the right-hand corner of your screen. That is the Pause button. The Play and Stop buttons are present in the middle as they usually do. It must have happened that you found you need to stop the video for a few seconds and then resume recording again. Earlier that was not possible, but Google Camera has come out with this feature that is very rare in the Android world right now and might make it very popular among the smartphone generation. You may now easily start recording a video, pause it in between, change your location or resume the video at a different time, depending on your convenience.

Google Camera has also reportedly found a new way of securing and guarding homes. In collaboration with a company called Nest, Google is taking pre-orders of home security cameras. These cameras will use a Google algorithm in order to send a notification to a user’s smartphone if the camera detects any irregularity. People may be apprehensive that their phone will keep on buzzing through the day even if a fly moves in front of the camera but Google has taken care of that with a program that can efficiently distinguish between ordinary everyday events and burglars breaking into a house. So, the only time a user will get a notification is when there is any real danger to their homes.

Koush’s Inkwire makes screen sharing on mobile devices easy!

inkwire screen sharing

Screen sharing apps are very popular nowadays. It helps people to access other people’s screens remotely so that problems can be solved even when there is a significant distance between the one who has the problem and the other who can address the problem. However, all these days, screen sharing apps were restricted to people using computers. Nowadays, with the advancement of the technological world, these apps are no longer restricted to computers only. A new app called Inkwire has now come about that offers screen sharing between Android devices. This app that has been conceptualised and made by famed developer Koushik Dutta aims to bridge the gap between screen sharing on PC and mobile devices. Nicknamed Koush, the developer has created many famous apps like Vysor, ClockworkMod, ROM Manager, and AllCast.

Koushik Dutta had recently gone on record stating that he was in the process of making a new app which would enable screen sharing on Android devices. Inkwire is the result of his work. With this app. people can access the phone screens of their family members, friends and even colleagues with the aim to solve a problem from afar. Vysor, which was Koushik Dutta’s last app, required a computer or ADB to perform its function of sharing a screen. Inkwire, as of now, is not entirely developed. It is only being tried as a beta version. There is work that is currently going on to make this app completely efficient. Independent app developers and tech support people would be the most benefitted from using this app as it is simple but highly effective. Koushik Dutta has also put in chat support so that users do not need to depend on third-party apps to maintain communication while solving problems.

How to use Inkwire?

Using the app is pretty simple and straightforward. Users can just join the Google Plus community and download the Android app from the Google Play Store. As soon as the download and installation are completed, the user can open the app and start using it. As soon as users fire up the app, they will find two options on the opening page. The first option will be to access the screen of another user, or there will be another option which will enable the user to share his or her own screen with somebody else. A code will be available to the user if he or she wants to share their own screen which, in turn, he/she will have to share with the person they are sharing the screen with. Vice-versa, if somebody wants to share their screen with the user, then they will have to share their code with the user. Also, both the users need to have the app installed on their phones.

If you are thinking that this app is perfect for you, then do not waste time and instead rush to the Google Play Store to get the app immediately. There are two things to remember before you go ahead and install this app. The first thing is that the app is still in development, and therefore, it might not work correctly all the time. The second thing is that there are some in-depth instructions that you must read through carefully before you get the app so that you do not face any problem while running it.  These guidelines are crucial, and you should read it because they come from the developer himself. One thing that you could do to help in the development of this app is you can provide feedback and reviews so that the app is perfect when it is completed.

Poke Radar, the newest Pokemon Go helper

razer go

The name as well as the game Pokemon Go is doing the rounds all over the world. It is a game that has caught the fancy of most of the smartphone carrying generation, and its virality has even compelled people from other age groups to join in the fun as well. There are several key factors resulting in the game being an instant success so much so that the game developers had to install more servers to deal with the pressure that resulted because of its instant popularity. The developers are still at it!

The game is really popular because it uses the AR concept very well and it is also among the very first apps that are using the said concept. It is fascinating for everyone around to find things that only appear on phone screens moving about in the real world. But with the unexpected popularity it has gained, there are some problems that are slowly cropping up. The biggest among them is the availability of Pokemons. The repetition of the same Pokemon multiple times during a single day hunt is telling on a player’s frustrated mind.

How does Poke Radar work?

That is why this new app has come around that helps the gamers in a great way, to determine what Pokemon is available and where it is available. The Poke Radar is an app that shows a player where a Pokemon is located on a real-time map. This app, though, is user-fed. It means it will only show info if a user inputs anything in it. If the app receives proper data, then users can get to see which Pokemons were found in which place on the map. Currently, there is no Android version for the Poke Radar, but the developers have assured that an Android version will be out soon enough along with the iOS version which is currently available on the market now.

Once a player travels to a place and gets a Pokemon, he/she can pin the location on the map which, in turn, will show other users of the app where a Pokemon was found. There is a dedicated Pin button which one can use to tag the location. However, this system of working also has its problems. Many people could misuse it just for the fun of it by tagging wrong places. Some could also do it to mislead competition. There is also a solution to that. Each player pin will have their name on it and therefore, others could downvote if they find a player creating a nuisance for others. If a player correctly sends all the information then the user can get all the positive votes and therefore, create a community which could help each other out.

Another new app that has come about is the Poke vision. This app is similar to Poke Radar as it also helps in finding Pokemons by crowd-sourcing. But like the Poke Radar, it also does not provide any particular settings to filter Pokemons thereby, giving up everything to blind luck and chance. With time more apps will come around with more advanced functionalities to make the search for Pokemons much easier. For the time being, though, this is what we have to use to get the most from this game.

Pokemon Go Tips and Tricks: Catch Pokemons from home

pokemon go tips

Pokemon Go is the newest game to go viral these days. It has really spread across the world and infected the smartphone generation with its addictive and exciting gameplay. The Augmented Reality concept that it uses is making waves in the smartphone manufacturing world with the fact being established that AR is the next step towards the evolution of smartphones. Also the gameplay, much like the actual TV show Pokemon promotes the user as a Pokemon trainer like the lead of the show Ash Ketchum, whom many people liked during their formative years. The Pokemon catching and more importantly doing it in unusual places in the real world makes the game something that others have not yet fully utilized.

Wherever games go, hackers follow, and Pokemon Go is no stranger to hacker haunting. Mods and cheats are also part of every game present in the world, whether it be on a PC, Nintendo, PS or a smartphone. These help the hardcore gamers progress quickly and the amateurs to override stages in the game that is too difficult for them to cross without external help.

POKEMON GO MODS:

Pokemon Go mods are rampant now. The only thing that is required is a jailbroken iPhone. If your phone is jailbroken and if you are a Pokemon Go addict, then there is no way you can stop as the fun is just beginning.

There is a new app called Pokemon Go Anywhere that allows users to sit at home or anywhere they want and still catch Pokemons! The point of the game was to simulate situations that Pokemon trainers underwent in the show and therefore, roam distant lands to get Pokemons but many people do not get that point, and others grow tired of all the walking. For them, this mod has been developed.

Users can just get the app on their phones and then fire it up. Once it is done, several options will appear that are not found in the regular game. You get a small button to walk even when you are not walking, and you can even run with this hack enabled!

Another mod called Pokemon Lock helps you play the game even when your screen is locked. If you are playing continuously, then you must get this app for yourself so that you can even play when your phone is screen locked. It also comes in really handy in front of your parents.

POKEMON GO TIPS:

It is being said that in order to get Pikachu as your first Pokemon catch it is advisable to ignore the first five attempts of the game to get you to catch the starter Pokemon. Most of the time it has been noticed that Squirtle, Bulbasaur or Charmander appear as the options.

Then there is the egg hatching solution. After you catch a Poke Egg, a player has to walk some distance after which the Pokemon is hatched. There is an option where you can drive or take any form of transport but if you simply do not want to run that hassle to just hatch an egg, then you can put it on top of anything that spins. A rumor was going around that if you kept it on a record player and let your phone spin, then the game would take it that you were moving around and your egg would be hatched. Another solution to this problem is if you have a pet. Take your pet, preferably a dog and strap your phone on its back. Let it run in an enclosed park and you do not have to move a muscle to hatch the eggs. But, be very aware and alert. Somebody could take the phone from the dog’s back with ease, so keep an eye on it. Also, you should be sure that your dog is not the type that runs off!

You could also sling a bag on two adjacent blades of your ceiling fan and keep your phone in it. Switch on the fan and you will hear the sound of eggs hatching! Like I said before, anything that spins or moves without you having to move is okay to hatch your Poke eggs for you.

iPhone apps that are on sale currently!

iphone apps sale

Everybody knows that getting an iPhone means a few bucks have to be spent every month in order to get new apps and a few more in order to get some in-app purchases. It is more like a high maintenance gadget that is irresistible. You know you will end up spending more than a premium Android of the same cost, but the brand name is enough to throw logic out of the window. However, for those who depend on discounts and sales, much like me, there is some good news. There is a sale currently in the Apple iStore where paid apps have been made available for free download for your iPhone.

APPS IN THE iPHONE SALE:

Remember that these iPhone apps are on sale for a limited period which nobody knows. So it may be free for a day, an hour or even a week. If you find a price beside the Get button, then be assured that the sale has ended. Be very careful about getting an app from this list as the sale might have ended. If it has not, then, it is your lucky day.

1. The Remote Drive app that usually costs around $3.99 is on sale. This app works like TeamViewer if you know what that is. If you do not, Remote Drive is a very useful app to have on your iPhone or iPad as you can access anything on your MAC through your handheld device. If you suddenly feel the need to get anything from your MAC while it is not with you, just fire up this app and browse through your MAC contents and download the required file, whether it is a music file, a video or image. Documents and other files are also accessible.

It is a remote way of travelling with your MAC in your pocket. Apart from the downloading part, you can also upload anything you want to save to your MAC, thereby reducing chances of losing data if you lose your phone or any such mishap occurs. Sensitive information which you may not want to travel with may be uploaded to your MAC too, or you can simply back it up.

2. AfterCam is another app that is on the iPhone sale currently. This app usually costs about $0.99, but it is free now. AfterCam helps you shoot those split second moments that are sensational but generally happen when we are not ready with our video camera or other such recording apparatus. It also happens that we record hours of something that may consist of something fantastic but at the end, nothing happens rendering the effort and the pressure on the memory card useless.

What AfterCam does is that it keeps recording an event where you think something is going to happen, but it commits nothing to memory. When you see something that is worth recording, you have to press a button, and AfterCam will start saving the video from 5, 10 or 20 seconds earlier, according to your choice. You can also take still pictures while a video is being recorded which is a very useful feature. Its Flip feature is also excellent as it lets the user record with both hands, be it the left or the right.

3. Next, we have the Recipes Cookbook in the iPhone sale. It costs $0.99 on other days but during the sale it is free. Remember, though that this app does not come with recipes as the name may suggest. It is more of a recipe organiser. It comes with a beautiful and attractive design and stores all your recipes very efficiently. If you are a cook professionally or even an amateur with a number of recipes that you have created, you can just store them in this app.

It comes with easy creating, organising, and editing of recipes. It also has small tools that help in your cooking, tools that seem unimportant but are actually very helpful when the actual process of cooking takes place. It has a weight converter on the side as well as a feature that prevents the phone from locking or dimming. It has recipe sharing facilities and voice commands are also available.

4. Draw Calendar costs $2.99 usually but now it is free of cost. It is just a spin-off of the conventional calendar as in it allows you to sketch and write on the calendar itself instead of the monotonous process of entering your reminders, invitations, birthdays and anniversaries and other such things that you usually chalk up on a calendar. It has a very clear and precise interface which makes it efficient as well as fun with clear demarcations for months and days and options to arrange and set how the calendar must look like. One of the biggest advantages is the fact that once you input your entries and update the calendar, your schedule is automatically synced to your devices.

5. Now let us look at a fun app that is on the sale, after all the seriousness of the scheduling and recipe making. Fake Moustaches is an app that usually costs $0.99 but now, of course, it is free. Going by the name you can well understand that this app will help you create fake mustaches anywhere and everywhere and also of all kinds. Want to troll a friend or seriously look good with a stubble? This app can do both.

There are hundreds of beard styles to choose from, and the app has been created with painstaking detail such that the beards all look real when you put them on someone. There is The Hollywoodian, The Chin Curtain, The Goatee, The Balbo, The Van Dyke and many others. The list simply does not end. That is not all by the way. You have other options too. You can dye the beard with any colour you desire, the app will automatically place the beard in the right position if you do not wish to do it, the app uses a hair-to-hair technique to make the beards, which impart a very genuine look. It also only requires you to get a beard and stick it anywhere in any picture. It is an app that is great fun and also very cool if used correctly.

6. In continuation with fun apps, Insta Rage Me is one of the most popular apps that ever graced the iOS app store. It cost $0.99. With this, you can add memes to your photos with texts or you can create your own memes. Either way, it is hilarious. You also get creative filters as well as professionally designed stickers in this app which makes it amusing. You can directly get your phone to use the app’s camera, or you can load photos from your camera roll. There are many filters, effects, and features to choose from.

Sharing is also very easy as it comes with Sharing buttons so that once you create something funny, you can get your friends to join in the laughter. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Email, Text, WhatsApp, Dropbox, and Save to Photo album are all options that you can use to save your creations. The text and font options are also incredibly amusing considering the memes that can be added to it.

7. Then there is the iPhone Storyline app that usually costs around $1.99 but is free due to the sale. It is a beautiful and efficient app that makes stories out of photos. You get to choose 20 of your best photos, and then they run in small slideshow whose background score and the per-slide time limit is also maintained by you. The sharing is, as usual, very easy. The audio and video quality are also very great. It has a very simple and straightforward user interface that enables the user to perform the functions easily and fluidly without any hassle.

The Storyline videos are also very easy to make and are created in no time at all. The videos also do not require separate saving. Once they are created, the app automatically saves a copy of the video. Family stories, weddings, social events, vacations can all be made even more special with this app in hand.

8. The app that costs the highest in this list of paid apps for free is Music.io. It usually costs around $9.99. It is a tapping music game. It is simple, much like Slither but is also very addictive. It gives users the ability to fiddle and play with their own music as well as other soundtracks. It supports dynamic lyrics and also has a very beautiful gameplay along with a great layout which can adjust according to the screen of the device the user is playing it on. It provides HD quality sound and also supports offline play.

9. Last but not the least is one of the most important iPhone apps that all grownups need as well as teenagers. It is the Budget and Expense Tracking app. Most people are happy when the month starts and their accounts are full but slowly find themselves at wit’s end by the end of the month thinking where all that money disappeared. So, everybody needs this and since it usually costs $2.99, now is a great time to grab the app when it does not even require peanuts to buy.

It has a budget feature that will help you determine what is the right amount of money that you can spend per month; it has a day-wise money spending calendar so that you can easily track what you spent and on which day, reports are available instantly on request, the cloud storage that it provides ensures that your spending data is protected, and it also has the option of importing Excel sheets so that you can do some complex calculations on your MAC and then get it on your phone. Apart from that, users also get the ability to create and edit categories according to their needs, and there is also a currency converter on the side so that you can convert and exchange in a jiffy.

So, here is the list of apps that come in the Paid section usually but are now available for free in the iStore. All of them are very efficient functionally and are apps that rightly do not come for free. However, since you have got the opportunity to get them, go and grab as many of them as you can.

To give you a little gist, it transforms your pictures by adding filters, like all other photo editing apps but what differentiates this app from every other such examples, is that its filters impart effects to photos which turn them into masterpieces in the styles of the great art masters Picasso and Van Gogh.

SO HOW DO YOU USE PRISMA?

It was available for iOS only, but now it is available for Android too. So, just download it onto your phone (BTW, it is only 15MB!) and allow the app to access your phone camera. Shoot a pic with the Prisma camera and instantly you can start adding filters and becoming a part of some legendary artwork.

The simple interface and the compact functioning of the app make you wonder at first as to how it has become such a rage. However, calm your nerves, fire up the app, snap a pic, and then choose from the 34 filters that are provided. The magic will then happen. “Creating Artwork,” that is what Prisma does in the name of editing. Once you see the results, you will know.

The filters are of varied kinds. Some are made for creating artwork out of faces while some are more appropriate for beautifying sceneries and landscapes. Whatever you edit in this app, though, looks better than the original. It is that good. Also, the artwork theme for editing is a revolutionary idea departing from the usual Sepia, Twilight and other modes that are available in most photo editing apps. You can also lessen or increase the intensity of the edit, thus putting everything in your hands. You might face a problem at times when a message will be displayed stating that Prisma’s capacity is full. It means the servers cannot take the load anymore. ItThis is because the developers had not thought that it would become so popular. However, steps have been taken by the owners of the app, the Russian Prisma Labs, who have assured that server capacity is being increased by the day, and therefore, this message should be less frequent in the future.

You can also edit and add filters to photos that are already on your camera roll. Sharing is also pretty smooth with instant sharing buttons for major social websites like Instagram and Facebook.
