Transform Pictures into Pieces of Art with Prisma

Transform Pictures into Pieces of Art with Prisma

If the Pokémon Go craze wasn’t enough to make most heads spin, there is another app which has been creating waves since the last few days. Prisma, which has been around for quite some time now on iOS devices, has finally made its way onto Android. For those of you who are not familiar with the app, Prisma transforms your photos into artworks using the styles of famous artists: Munk, Picasso as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art. Rather than applying a filter which changes the color, saturation, exposure and contrast of a photo, Prisma uses proprietary algorithms to analyze your photos and gives you the option to apply nearly 40 different art styles.  My personal favorite is the material design style that blends perfectly on devices that are running on Android Lollipop and above. For those of you who want to bring out your inner artiste should definitely give this app a try. Prisma is available for free on the Google Play Store and has already received more than 71k reviews in the first two days since its launch. So what do you guys think about this new app? Do share your experiences with us in the comments below. Cheers! Download from the Google Play Store here....

Twitter’s 140 character limit still standing!

Twitter’s 140 character limit still standing!

Twitter has been making strides recently with a bunch of new tweaks and features that have enhanced the way people have been traditionally using the social media platform. In a recent announcement, the company is said to stop counting photos and links as part of its 140 character limit for a single tweet. This will allow users to add 23 additional characters to their tweets as links currently hog 23 characters even after Twitter automatically shortens them. There were rumors flying around in the beginning of the year that Twitter would be increasing its character limit from 140 characters to a whopping 10,000 characters but then the company decided not to go with it (or at least put it on a hold) for now as the core beauty of twitter lies in its short text based messages. Twitter’s 140-character limit was originally adopted because it was a way to send Tweets while fitting all the information within a mobile text message, a common way for sending Tweets when the service debuted in 2006, before the rise of the smartphones genre. The new feature is expected to arrive in two weeks so make sure you guys keep your app updated to the latest version. Happy...

YouTube introduces new in-app chat feature

YouTube introduces new in-app chat feature

  YouTube has been recently adding new features to its mobile versions with one significant addition being the auto-play video feature similar to what we see in the web version of the world’s most popular video sharing site. Many people, including myself felt a bit annoyed with the auto play feature but thankfully you do get an option to disable it from the app’s settings. Starting today, YouTube will be testing out a new messenger like feature which lets users communicate with each other privately and also directly share videos without the need of sharing just the videos URL. The company feels that by integrating the messaging option into its native application will allow users to easily share videos with friends and family while at the same time drop in a message or two as well. For now, the new messaging feature is currently available for testing among few selected users and will be available to all in the next...

The new desktop app is available for Windows 8+ and Mac OS 10.9+ and is synced with WhatsApp on your mobile device.
