Yovo Photo-Sharing App Messes Up Screenshots to Protect Your Pics

Yovo App

So a lot of snaps that were taken and sent using Snapchat were leaked recently. I, for one, am a firm believer that if you need to have an image deleted mere moments after you’ve taken it, then you probably shouldn’t be taking that picture in the first place. Scores of people disagree, so if you’re looking for an alternative to Snapchat, then you should check out Yovo.

It’s an image sharing app created by ContentGuard and it uses a simple but ingenious way to keep your images private. All pictures taken using the app have a blurred grill overlay added to it, which isn’t apparent when you’re checking out the picture. However, it effectively ruins (or rather, blocks) the image when the recipient tries to take a screenshot.

Anti Tagging App Glitches Your Face Out So You Can’t Be Tagged

Anti Tagging

How many times has social media screwed up your work and personal life? From that drunken night you can’t remember anymore to someone’s bachelor party, there are just some things that are best kept private. Unfortunately, there’s Facebook and their face recognition algorithm that makes it easier for people to tag other people in their photos, making some supposedly-private moments public.

You won’t be able to prevent others from doing this in the future, but you can make a statement with Anti Tagging. It’s an app that detects people’s faces in photos–and glitches them out so no system can recognize them, much alone tag them. Continue Reading

The iLuv Selfy is the Smartphone Case For the Selfie-Obsessed

iLuv Selfy Case

Love selfies? Then you’ll love the iLuv Selfy smartphone case, which was designed for users who take selfies and groufies almost obsessively. The case is simple and unobtrusive enough. But the selfie factor lies with the remote trigger functionality, as it comes with a detachable remote at the back to trigger the phone’s rear camera.

Aside from added convenience, the case gives the would-be selfie and groufie takers to pose and compose themselves before taking a shot. Since the shutter is triggered remotely, they also have ample time to position themselves to make sure that no one’s head gets cut off in the shot.

Sushi Cats0

Love cats? Love sushi? Then you’ll love Sushi Cats. Before you freak out and insist that you don’t find cat sushi appetizing, let me reassure you that Sushi Cats isn’t sushi that’s made from cats. Instead, it’s actually a photo series by Japan-based company Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts that showcases the most adorable cats dressed up as sushi.

The cats are perched on a comfortable-looking gigantic rice pillow and they’re “topped” with an array of stuff, ranging from condiments and seafood to handbags and striped socks. There are more photos from the series after the jump.

ThrowBack iOS App Gives You a Photographic Blast from the Past

Throwback App

People don’t really bother with time capsules anymore nowadays. If you like the idea but can’t make yourself go through all the hassles of putting one together, then you might want to opt for the easier alternative: ThrowBack.

It’s an iOS app that’ll let you take a picture and store it for future viewing. You can choose to have the app send the photo to you or to others after a certain period of time, from one month to five years. The image won’t be stored on your phone, but on the app’s servers somewhere on the interwebs, so it’ll arrive as a neat little surprise on the scheduled date that you’ve chosen.

The ThrowBack app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store for free.

Instacube Offers a Living Canvas for Your Instagram Photos

Instacube

If you’ve been clamoring to see your Instagram photos on somewhere other than your computer or smartphone screen, then you’re in luck because the Instacube is here. And it’s going to be here to stay, if you help its developers out.

The Instacube is a digital Instagram photo frame that runs on Android. It displays your favorite shots from your Instagram feed at three times the normal size so you can get up close and personal, and appreciate the photos just as they were meant to. It also makes sharing your photos a snap, too, especially to your friends and family who don’t have Instagram, provided that they’re physically close to you (and the Instacube!) that is.

The Instacube comes with a 600×600 pixel touchscreen display and can be set up in three easy steps. Just plug it in, connect it to your WiFi network, log on to your Instagram account, and you’re good to go. The device itself features a simple-to-navigate menu so you can browse through your stream just as you would on your phone.

Hit the jump to check out a video introducing the Instacube as well as links on where you can get it.

iPhone Case Packs Polarizing Lens


By David Ponce

Polarizing lenses help remove unwanted reflections from your pictures. The iPhone doesn’t have one of those. Unless you buy this case, which comes with one. What’s even better is the lens is detachable and interchangeable. If you get bored of polarizing, you can screw any of a bevy of other lenses, like macros, or zooms or even… 12X telephoto lenses.

But make sure that there’s a lot of light when you use this: seems the flash is blocked.

It’s $38.
