lifehacks1Features (copied from Google Play):

Do you want to make your everyday life interesting?
We will help you do so by providing you with some of the interesting life hacks that help you make your life easy and interesting.
Salient features:
1. Various categories of life hacks available such as technology, life tips, health, food and drinks
2. Regular updates of new life hacks
3. Super simple to use and beautiful design
4. Super light in size

Life hacks app makes your day with interesting tips to make life simple and happy.





From the name of the app itself, the app’s purpose is to disseminate useful life hacks. There are several catergories: technology, food and drink, health and fitness, solutions, money savers, life tips, survival, party, brainy, and extras. These categories are really interesting, but I hope they could add more, provide life hacks for fashion, general everyday living etc.

You can “heart” or like your favorite life hacks so it gets saved up for later viewing. You can also share them on social media or copy it directly to your clipboard.

I tried clicking the New button for new life hacks, but I am having difficulties accessing it, it just keeps on loading. I am not certain if this is the app’s fault or my internet connection.

I am hoping that they can add some pictures or perhaps short clips just to make the app even more interesting. I mean, the idea of curating life hacks is really great, but perhaps some media will add more color and  to it.

Try this app! There are several other apps that offer life hacks, but you should at least take a look at this one. 🙂

Word Cloud app review

Today’s review: Word Cloud version 1.5

Google Play: Word Cloud

wordcloud1First these are the features (copied/taken from Google Play):

Prepare an opening slide for your business presentation. Whip up a creative status update for your Facebook page. Type in all the best wishes in a birthday greeting card for your grandma. Proudly tweet an image with your sport achievements. Perhaps, even list your skills for the CV.

Just enter a few words, and the application will shuffle them around in a cute disorderly fashion. Pick a color or two for your meaningful words, shape them, export them, use the pic. Rinse and repeat.

It’s absolutely free. No ads and no annoying popups.

Your creative process:
• Enter as many words as you like.
• Select up to five different word colors for a fresh look.
• Choose the right background color. Yellow words on a black background or pink on white?
• You can even make a transparent background!
• There’re many shapes to frame your idea. Star, Christmas Tree or Heart – and many more!
• Pick one or several fonts, just like colors.
• Looks great, doesn’t it?

Picky? There’re more options:
• Word sizes can be customized! First one is only for the first BIG word, and others – for everything else.
• Want more than one BIG IMPORTANT word right in the middle? Check additional options on the Enter Words screen!
• Hint: you can rearrange words order on the Enter Words screen: just drag-and-drop them.

And when you’re done:
• Export the picture to a high-quality PNG.
• Share the picture with your friends directly from the app!
• Or post it to a social network – again, directly from the app.
• Don’t forget to save the result. You might want to get back to it later! 🙂


This app can arrange your words into a certain shape (cloud) which you can use in any way you want! This is perfect for social media posts!

First you need to select the words. You also have the option to change the color, size, shape and font of your word cloud.

I made one related to my app review blog:


Here are some other samples of shapes:



You can easily share, export, and save the image.

Try this app! It adds spice to social media posts and articles! 🙂

Screenshot app review

Today’s review: Screenshot version 1.2.21

Google Play: Screenshot

screenshot1Features (taken from Google Play):

This software provides a easy method to take screenshot, and the following functions:

– Share Screenshots
– Press the power button and volume down to take screenshot
– Set the path to save the screenshot
– Screenshot display, you can decide to save or discard screenshots
– Trim the captured screenshots
– Painting on the screenshot
– Add mosaic
– Add text
– Browse and edit all history screenshots






As we all know, smartphones already have the feature to do screenshots. I like this app because it is easy and convenient to use. After pressing the keys to activate screenshot feature (Power button + volume down or Power button + Home  button), the app automatically takes you to a new window wherein you can already do simple editing.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The editing tools includes mosaic (successfully blurs anything), cropping/trimming, adding text and freehand drawing/painting/doodling. I took a screenshot of my Instagram profile and tried all these tools (photos above). This app is a great help since I do not need to open/switch to another app if I wanted to do some basic edits. This is perfect for me because I do screenshots a lot (for my app reviews) and I am quite content with the functionality. You can opt to activate the notification icon (found in the settings).

I hope they can add an Undo button so you don’t have to take a screenshot again in case you make a mistake in editing.

Try this app now!
