Phereo 3D Photo is a fine photo viewer, but it only works with a small number of Android gadgets. Sadly, most of the gear it works with isn't very popular, which means most users won't be able to get all they otherwise could from this app. If you have one of the supported devices, this app is a worthwhile photo-sharing network.
While this app lets you view and share photos in 3D, it only works on a small number of smartphones and tablets: the only big names in the group are the HTC Evo 3D and the LG … Read more
Wink allows Glass users to snap a photo by doing nothing more than winking. Privacy fears aside, it's a pretty sweet feature.
Previously the Wink feature was rumored to officially make its way to Glass, but it never was released by Google. There were developers who released apps to enable the feature through sideloading, but again, Google never officially endorsed it.
Fast-forward to the latest OS for Glass, XE12, and the second iteration of the headset and Wink is now included as an official (albeit experimental) feature.
To enable Wink, navigate to the Settings section of Glass and scroll … Read more

Timeline tune-ups It isn't unusual to see an item on your Facebook timeline and wonder, "How did that get there?" Your next thought may be, "How do I get it out of … Read more

photo2video is designed to convert photos into videos on your iPhone, and while the final result often looks good, there are some bumps in the road between snapping and rendering. The app's interface is the biggest drawback here, with unlabeled buttons, no clear tutorial, and a messy layout that can be confusing.

Photo Reflection HD Free promises to add reflection effects to your photos. Despite its many features, the app didn't produce results that we were particularly happy with, and some functionality issues further interfered with the app's use.
Photo Reflection HD Free's interface is fairly straightforward, with buttons across the bottom for editing features, shadow, size, reflection direction, and saving your work. We chose to work with an image from our iPhone's photo album, which the app opened on a background with an abstract green and yellow swirl pattern. The app creates the reflection by just doubling … Read more
Photo2Fun lets you insert your images into a variety of different photo montages with interesting and sometimes hilarious results. We weren't crazy about the app's interface and its numerous ads and upgrade offers, but the quality of Photo2Fun's results makes it worth the hassle.
Photo2Fun's interface is kind of a pain, with all of the montage options displayed on one seemingly endless screen. To view them all you have to keep scrolling and scrolling. It would have been nice if they had been organized by theme, but instead they're all there for you to sort … Read more
PhotoPixar is a limited photo album program that seems primarily designed to add unwanted extras to your desktop. It offers no editing tools and just drops your selected images onto one of several backgrounds. It starts off poorly and never offers any compelling reason to keep using it.
Even if you're paying attention during the install and unchecking the box to change your browser's home page to the publisher's site, you'll still get desktop links to two online tools, Repair my PC and Boost My PC. You'll also need to supply your name and e-mail … Read more
