I tried this app solely for editing photos for my Instagram account. I have found that this app is definitely packed with features.
Mostly I use the Grid feature. But for the purpose of reviewing this app, I also checked out the other features (though not all).
As you can see, you can edit the grid, layout, add smileys, add/edit text, add backgrounds etc. You can do a lot with this app.
I tried the slide show:
Scrapbook and Filmstrip:
There is also this feature that I liked, Twinkle, and it turns your photos into artworks:
I really hope they would add more artwork styles on Twinkle!
I think I was not able to try the Filters, because of course that would require taking a selfie (haha!). But it is a must try, most especially the Venus Filter.
The PhotoGrid works very much like a social media app: you can follow other users and like/comment on photos they have uploaded.
So I made a (movie scene) meme (I love memes!), using the Grid feature:
You have the option to use Filmstrip though instead of the Grid. I did not use the Filmstrip because you can only arrange each photo straight vertically or horizontally. I really wanted the whole photo to fit the requirements of Instagram (sort of square-ish in size) and make the most of the available space thus I used the Grid.

Today’s review: Dark Stories
Google play link: Dark Stories
Features/Description (copied from Google Play):
THIS GAME IS MEANT TO BE PLAYED WITH FRIENDS IN PERSON. IF YOU ARE ALONE YOU CANNOT PLAY!
Dark Stories is an easy to play and fun game but some of the stories are quite difficult. All the stories are fictional. To solve them, the players will need to prove their skills as detectives.
HOW TO PLAY
Dark Stories must be played in group. A person -chosen as narrator- picks a mystery and reads its description aloud.
Then he/she reads its solution without telling the other people. The rest of the players then have to make questions in order to solve the mystery.
The narrator can only answer the questions using “Yes”, “No” or “It is not relevant”. The only possible solution is the one given at the back of each mystery card. If the answer is still not clear enough, the players must follow the narrator’s interpretation of the mystery.
A typical fragment of a gameplay could be:
Player1: “Did he die because of the shot?”
Player2: “Was he poisoned?”
Player3: “Did he have children?”
Narrator: “It’s not relevant”
Player1: “Are there other people in the story?”
Player2: “Did he commit suicide?”
END OF THE GAME
When the narrator considers that the story has been solved enough, the narrator can conclude the game and read the whole solution.
It is up to the narrator to give some clues if the story is in a deadlock.
WHEN TO PLAY
It is perfect for birthday parties, camps… and every situation in which you join several friends.
This free App includes more than 50 stories and we will add new stories periodically.
Accidents, suicides, thefts… Will you be able to solve every mystery?
If you and your friends would like to play a puzzle game, then this app is perfect for you!
You only need to designate a narrator who will read the riddle (and the solution) and then answer yes or no to questions. This app is fun to play, I assure you!
Here are some samples of the riddles:

I really liked this app because I do not need to do the usual copy pasting of information from websites. I can just save it as a pdf or an image. The best feature is it saves the whole article or webpage, even the parts hidden from the screen. With the stock screenshot feature in our phones, we can only capture those on the screen. This is a huge advantage for this app.
Most of the time, I save my research as a pdf. Now my files are very organized since all of them are the same file type.

Today’s review: Pop N Blast Puzzle version 1.2.5
Google Play link: Pop N Blast Puzzle
Features (taken from Google Play):
Pop N Blast is not only an addictive and fun puzzle game: it is a challenge.
It starts with a simple concept: pop and blast anything on the screen.
Seems simple, right? But be careful: your number of actions is limited.
Make good use of the power-ups to solve each puzzle.
Pop N Blast is totally addictive and includes more than 1,500 challenging puzzles that will really twist your neurons.
Relax and use your brain
As cells pop they generate relaxing melodies that will relieve the stress of your day while having fun.
The simple and unique design of Pop N Blast helps you stay focused on the most important part: the game!
And the fun does not stop here: Pop N Blast includes a strategic multiplayer mode with up to 4 players.
In this mode you pop your cells in order to blast and take over all your opponents cells.
Some people say it is like a chess game but even better.
Make strategic moves to defeat your opponents.
★ Two games in one: a puzzle and a battle mode
★ Have fun with your friends: multiplayer Battle mode with up to 4 players
★ More than 1,500 challenging puzzles
★ Addictive but relaxing gameplay
★ Compete against 4 difficulty levels (easy, medium, hard and expert)
★ Pop and blast everything
★ As strategic as chess
★ Customize the sounds and shapes of your cells
★ Frequent adding of new puzzles
How to play Pop N Blast
The goal is to clear all the cells of each puzzle in a limited number of actions.
The key is to pop cells to trigger chain reactions in order to blast all the other cells.
Make good use of the power-ups to solve a puzzle.
How to play the Battle mode
The Battle mode is a strategic and reflection multiplayer game that can be compared to chess.
The goal is to place and pop cells on a grid in order to blast and take over the cells of the other opponents.
Try to predict your opponents move in order to win the game.
How many levels has the game
For now, there are more than 1,500 puzzles, and more to come.
The battle mode offers more than 10 different grids to increase the fun.
How challenging is the game
While the first levels are quite easy, the increasing difficulty of the puzzle will really put your reflection at its limit.
If a level is too challenging, the power-ups will definitely help you to beat the game.
There is a tutorial at the beginning so you get acquainted with the game. There are two modes: the Puzzle and the Battle mode. I haven’t tried the Battle mode (multiplayer) yet because I wanted to practice first using the Puzzle mode haha
As mentioned above, the goal of the game is to clear all the cells in that particular level. The challenge here is to accomplish that goal in the specified number of touches. You must conjure a strategy to be able to pop all cells within the specified number of touches.
Basically, a cell transforms with each touch and the last transformation pops the surrounding cells, thus triggering a chain reaction of popping cells. This game is quite addicting and relaxing at the same time. The popping effects are simple yet elegant.
Here are some of the levels that I have played so far:
I have finished Level 10 and I hope to conquer the higher levels.
You can also purchase pops for greater advantage:
My account here on WordPress is just the basic account thus I am not allowed to post video clips. I hope to upgrade my account in the near future – as soon as I get hold of some funds!

The apps are also easy to use since you can activate widgets for each of them.
Unfortunately, my phone is just a very basic smartphone thus I was not able to test the apps requiring sensors (magnetic sensors, leveller etc). The heart rate monitor is what intrigued me, I wonder how it works. What do you think?
