*******************

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:

Photogridsample

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.

Try this app now! 🙂

The main interface of the app (Home) will already give you some random wallpapers such as the following:

Beautiful isn’t it? If you are looking for a specific category of wallpaper, don’t fret, they already have the wallpapers categorized for easier searching. The categories are on the left sidebar, if you press the Menu icon on the top left.

You can also save the wallpaper to your phone, share it on social media and of course, set it as your phone wallpaper.

I chose this wallpaper (see below) for my phone since it is lovely and kind of refreshing to look at. 🙂

I hope the developers can add a search option, this would be handy if we are searching for a very specific theme of wallpaper (through tags). This will certainly minimize the search time.

Try this app now!

Brightness Scheduler app review

Today’s review: Brightness Scheduler version 2.3.3

Google Play link: Brightness Scheduler

brightnessscheduler1Features (copied from Google Play):

Brightness scheduler is an application which changes the brightness of screen-light automatically at the reserved time.

Helpful to schedule as follows.
– In the morning, set the screen a little dark.
– In the afternoon, set the screen bright .
– In the night, set the screen dark.

In addition to the scheduling function, there is also a widget that you can quickly change the brightness.

Adjust the brightness well, will save the battery!

This app is the free version with ads.
Registration schedule limited to 3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*************************

I’ve been using this app for a week now and it is definitely very helpful in my opinion. My android isn’t blessed with the automatic adjustment of brightness thus I had to do that manually. Thankfully, I found this app to do the task for me.

My habit at night is to set the screen brightness at 15% and around 30% during daytime (most of the time). Since this is a habit anyway, I opted to set this using the app so I don’t have to adjust every time. As you can see above, I use the same settings everyday.

The purpose of this app is quite simple, and you might say that I’m too lazy to do brightness adjustments by myself, but hey, not fussing about the brightness is a breath of fresh air to me. 🙂

The downside is, you can only register up to 3 brightness schedules. I hope they add more. But nevertheless, the app does its job quite nicely.

If you wish to make schedules for other tasks, such as Wi-Fi, bluetooth, mobile data etc. You can also try this app – Phone Schedule. I haven’t tried this one actually, because I choose to activate/deactivate wifi etc manually (I don’t have a fixed schedule for those things). Thus, Brightness Scheduler meets my requirement for now.

Try the Brightness Scheduler app now!
