VSCO Cam 3.2 APK

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 03:40 PM PDT

VSCO Cam has just received an update to version 3.2, bringing with it Copy + Paste batch photo editing feature that makes your life easier by making it seamless to edit photos in batches. The new VSCO cam also comes with a new ability to import tiff image files and fixed various issues. You can download the latest version from the Play Store.

VSCO Cam is by far one of the best apps on the Google play store that feels like an actual real photographic tool. This is the natural style of an app for mobile with the smartest filters and features for those enthusiastic phone photographers, good for editing film photography as well. Instead of providing weird ways to mangle your photos, VSCO helps you make them prefects, even understanding the foibles of different phones' mediocre cameras. That is awesome when you had the best captured photos moments you can share your vibes with this cool thing.

Contains lots of additional effects that can be added to a picture. Ideal for mobile photographers, especially for those who want complete control of their pictures. If you can't grab the new version on the Google Play Store, you can download VSCO Cam APK version 3.2 below.

What do you think of this newly released update and do you like the changes VSCO has made Copy + Paste feature?

Samsung expands Milk Music streaming service to the web

What is Google+, and who actually uses it?

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 11:36 AM PDT

Google's plans for total web domination have been scaled back to a simple, powerful social network with no shortage of killer features.

Social behavior is a strangely integral part of the Internet as we know and use it today, and in many ways it has been from the very beginning. Message boards, IRC channels, image hosting sites, and email have always existed as important social components to the Internet. And in much the same way smartphones have pulled together many different single-purpose technologies into a single thought, social networks have come to exist as massive communication hubs that act for many people as the homepage of the Internet.

Google's efforts in social networking are many, and while none of them has seen the kind of global acceptance that its search, video, and email services have enjoyed, Google's most recent efforts in this space have advanced the state of the market in some unique ways. Google+ is, first and foremost, a platform focused on bringing all of Google together for users to enjoy. Whether that also means it's a social network for everyone is for you to decide for yourself.

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 11:36 AM PDT

unnamed (2) Samsung has been pushing its fancy new Milk brand hard lately, adding video and teasing virtual reality. But before today, listeners' biggest barrier to access was the fact that the app was only available on their Samsung-branded phones and tablets. That changes this morning with the launch of Milk Music for the web, accessible from desktop and Chrome OS browsers at milk.samsung.com. Log in using your Samsung account and you'll have access to the same songs and stations that you do on mobile.

Tip: Switch Sibling Tabs In Chrome By Swiping Across Android's Navigation Bar

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 11:36 AM PDT

Today we've got a quick tip for Chrome - a new method of switching between what we'll call "sibling tabs" in Chrome for Android when you've got apps and tabs merged.

First, what are sibling tabs? In Chrome on Android Lollipop, when users have tabs and apps merged (so Chrome tabs show up in the overview space), tabs opened using the "open in new tab" action will group together with the parent tab, making a nice little group that will stick together as you scroll vertically.

Samsung brings Milk Music streaming to the web

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 11:17 AM PDT


Samsung has just broughtthe Milk Music streaming service to the web. This was previously limited to mobile applications and select Samsung televisions, so the users will welcome the addition of this new feature. Samsung expressed interest to bring Milk Music to the web browsers a couple of months ago, but it has taken until now for the company to make this official.

The web version brings some nifty channel tuning settings as well as a massive album artwork. Since it will keep playing in the background, you probably won't be staring at the album artwork for long, but it's still a good visual feature to have for music fans.

Samsung's Milk Music service is a free to access streaming app, provided you have a Samsung device. If you fit the criteria, make sure you give Milk Music a try from the link below.

Vodafone UK kicks off pre-orders on the One (M9)

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 11:03 AM PDT


Hot on the heels of EE's announcement earlier today, UK operator Vodafone is now taking pre-orders for HTC's flagship smartphone of 2015, the One (M9). The handset is available to purchase on any of its 2-year plans starting at £26.50 a month with a £169 down payment.

Unfortunately, the pricing plans referred to above do not include 4G connectivity, which you'll probably want. To take advantage of the faster speeds, you will have to fork out an additional £12 per month, bumping the total up to £38.50, with an upfront fee of £19.

Just in case you need a refresher on the devices specifications, the One (M9) packs a 5-inch LCD3 display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 and 2GHz Cortex-A57 CPU, 3GB of RAM, a 20.7MP camera and a 2,840mAh battery.

If you're based in the UK, like the sound of the One (M9) and want to pre-order one through Vodafone – hit the source link below.

Be together, not the same. That's the message Google has been spreading in the latest era of Android. Another ad with that message has popped up today, and this one is all about Android Wear. Square or round, leather or metal, no matter what you prefer: there's probably an Android Wear smart watch for you right now, and if there isn't then there's sure to be one right around the corner. Check it out:

Oh, and Samsung isn't above getting a quick last minute word in about their own line of watches either. They might not run Android Wear, but it's hard to deny the Gear lineup has gotten quite nice in its short time on the market.

Watch the HTC One M9 selfie camera destroy the iPhone 6 [VIDEO]

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 09:48 AM PDT

While HTC may have removed "UltraPixels" from the rear camera on the HTC One M9, they moved them to the front-facing camera. The One M9 has a 2″UltraPixel" front-facing camera that is supposed to perform much better in low-light for selfies. At least that's what HTC claims. We put it up to the test against the iPhone 6 to see for ourselves.

One M9 / iPhone 6

It seems pretty obvious to us that the UltraPixels are destroying the iPhone 6. The photos from the One M9 look remarkably more clear and bright in the low-light conditions. Even in the bottom two photos, where the light isn't so dim, the One M9 is outperforming the iPhone 6. If you're looking to take selfies in all conditions this might be the phone for you.

From the Galaxy S5 to Galaxy S6: how to get top dollar for your smartphone trade-in

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 09:48 AM PDT

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs S5 DSC08959

With carriers ordering more than 20 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to sell this April we're sure there are many looking into their upgrade options. One of the most popular options for upgrading is to subsidize the payment by trading in your old phone to go toward the latest and greatest.

So how do you get the most out of your trade-in? NextWorth's suggestion is to try and trade your old device in ahead of the arrival of the new one. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy S5, the company suggests the trade-in prices drop by as much as 15% as soon as the newest smartphone in a series is available for purchase.


The obvious answer is to trade your device in before the new one launches, but that's not the most convenient option for most folks — what the heck are you going to use as a phone until you actually get the new one in your hands?

In the event that you don't have a backup, NextWorth's 30-day PriceLock guarantee is actually pretty handy. It allows you to get a quote for your current device right now, and with a comfortable 30-day window to ship your device at the price you originally received you don't have to worry about cutting it close.

There aren't many other trade-in services doing this right now. USell has a similar 30-day guarantee, though USell is more like Craigslist than it is a trade-in company — that is, it's more like a network of sellers and buyers instead of one company setting a standard trade-in price. Gazelle once ran a promotion like this, but it was only for the iPhone 5's launch (and in case they're confused, this is our half-hearted plea to consider making it a standard feature of their service).

Some fine alternatives

But the absolute best way to get the most for your trade-in — whether you can trade-in now or have to wait until the device you want is available — is to simply look around and find the best deal.

Most places will give you a quote before asking for your device so it's worth taking a few extra minutes to see who offers the best prices. Here's a quick list of good places to trade your devices in if you need to fund a Samsung Galaxy S6 purchase:

  • Your carrierSprint, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and US Cellular all offer convenient trade-in programs. Most carriers even accept devices meant for use on other networks. Note that some carriers will only issue funds as store credit, so don't go this route unless you plan to spend all of the money with them.

  • Amazon.com – they accept a metric crap-ton of stuff, including — you guessed it — smartphones. They get bonus points for allowing their trusted users to receive trade-in credit before shipping the devices off. Like the carriers, Amazon only dishes out store credit.

  • Gazelle – without a doubt, one of the best third-party trade-in companies. They specialize in mobile phones so they have a pretty good feel for a device's worth.

  • USell – you're connected to sellers more than you're trading devices in through a company, but they're a very solid middleman for finding people to buy from or sell to. They also have a 30-day guarantee similar to NextWorth.

  • Best Buy – because they're the biggest electronics retailer in the United States and there's no reason to question their legitimacy. Might as well see if they can get you the best price on your next trade-in.

Of course, the only way you can get the most value out of your current device is to sell it yourself. The eBays and Craigslists in the world make it quite easy to do that unless making a sale listing, having to handle shipping and dealing with potential headaches like missed payments and returns is too much of a hassle for you. Feel free to choose any route that best suits your needs and let us know which one you'll be taking once April 10th arrives.

VSCO Cam update adds Copy + Paste batch edit feature

Posted: 09 Mar 2015 09:01 AM PDT

Heads up, VSCO Cammers, because your photo editing app is getting a handy new feature today.

A VSCO Cam update is rolling out today that bumps the Android app up to version 3.2 and includes Copy + Paste. The feature lets you copy edits from one photo and apply them to a batch of others by tapping a photo, hitting the Copy + Paste button, and selecting Copy Edit. You then select the photos that you want to apply the edits to. It's worth mentioning that when you do paste edits, your cropping and straightening won't carry over.

In addition to Copy + Paste, today's VSCO Cam for Android update adds support for importing TIFF images and some unspecified bug fixes.

Overall this looks like a spiffy update for VSCO Cam users. The Copy + Paste feature can help you save time while batch editing a bunch of photos of the same subject, and the ability to import TIFF images is a welcome addition since more image format support is always welcome.

The VSCO Cam v3.2 update will be rolling out today. If you don't already have the app, you can grab it using the Google Play link below.
