During the summertime it’s great to go outside for a walk, but you can easily get bored with the same route. What if there were an easy way to discover cool things about your city while going on a walk?
Pokémon Go isn’t the only app that wants you to go outside.
Strol is an awesome app that not only auto-generates a walking route based on a few factors, but it also tells you cool info about landmarks you might otherwise miss.
Concept and Functionality:
Personally I love going for walks in the morning and the evening. However, it can be tricky to figure out the best way to go if you’re facing time constraints.
Strol, by Strol LLC, not only tells you about areas of your city, but it tells you the best route to go in a given period of time.
I’ve never come across an app like Strol and I definitely think it’s a breath of fresh air.
Even if you’re not really interested in landmarks and/or you don’t even live in a city, the app is incredibly useful. Not only that, but you’ll actually be encouraged to walk in order to discover new places.
When it comes to usability, Strol has been extremely well designed and so isn’t hard to figure out.
You’ll be able to pick the app up and use it within minutes of taking your first walk. This is great news for iPhone users who don’t want to tinker with an app and would rather open it and begin using it immediately.
Strol iPhone App
Strol is incredibly feature-rich, and the best way to take advantage of all the features that are offered is to use the app when you’re located in a new city.
Even though it’s designed to be used everywhere, you’ll definitely get more out of the app in terms of learning about new landmarks.
Another cool thing about Strol is that it features achievements and the ability to keep a running history of all of your journeys.
The only drawback to this is that it seems you have to connect a social media account with the app in order to take advantage of these features.
According to the developer, you’re supposed to “Use social networks to invite friends to a scenic stroll with you or share a great city walk you had so your friends can enjoy it too.”
I agree with this to a certain point, but I don’t think that users who aren’t involved with social networking should be locked out of features like achievements and history.
Strol is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases that I could find, and the app is not supported by ads.
Whether you’re exploring a new city or you want to find a new walking route in your neighborhood, Strol is certainly worth a try.
Strol requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Prisma – Art Filters and Photo Effects for Images, Picture Editor for Instagram (Free) by Prisma labs, inc. is a new photo filter app that gives your photos a unique touch by turning them into works of art. If you enjoyed apps like Waterlogue and Popsicolor, then you will love what Prisma brings to the table. Now you can see what it’s like to be art from Picasso!
I started developing a love for photography while I was in high school, though I never thought I was a professional as I continued the hobby many years after. When I got my first iPhone in 2008, I was pretty excited that I had a smartphone that could take better images than my old flip phones, and after the iPhone 4, well, that’s just history. Ever since the iPhone 4, Apple has continued to improve the camera specs on the iPhone, and with my iPhone 6s Plus, I feel no need to go out and buy a standalone digital camera anymore (I’m not doing photography for a business). Photography is one of my favorite things to do in my spare time when I’m out and about, so naturally, that means a lot of photo editing apps on my device as well. However, even though most of my apps are for serious photo editing on-the-go, that doesn’t mean I don’t like to have some fun with my images every now and then. So when I heard of Prisma over this weekend (among all of the Pokemon Go hype), I had to check it out for myself.
Prisma features a very minimalistic, barebones interface that makes it easy to navigate and use. While most photo apps go for a dark interface design, Prisma has a ton of white, which personally goes better with my Rose Gold iPhone 6s Plus anyways. There’s plenty of whitespace in the app, which can be good or bad, depending on how you see it. For me, though, I think a lot of whitespace works for what they have here. The thin and light icons for all of the buttons are easily recognizable, so you won’t have any trouble knowing how the app works. Snapping new photos or importing them is pretty quick, but the rendering of effects is a bit slow, though it’s understandable considering how artistic they are. While Prisma will put a watermark on your images initially, you can just toggle the setting off if it bothers you (at no cost!)
With Prisma, users have two ways to get an image into the app: snapping a new photo or importing from your Photo Library. But be warned — Prisma turns everything into a 1:1 square crop, so unfortunately, you can’t get the full portrait or landscape image in the app. This may be a turnoff for some, but on the plus side, all of your images will be perfectly ready for Instagram this way. If you decide to snap a new photo with Prisma, you’ll have the square viewfinder in the top half of the screen, and you can toggle the flash and front or rear-facing camera with the buttons under the viewfinder. If you want to change settings, just tap on the cog icon. When you import an image, you’ll be able to adjust the positioning to better fit the square crop format, though I honestly hope the developers can drop the square-only format in the future.
Once you have decided on your image, whether it’s a gorgeous photograph of scenery or a picture-perfect selfie, it’s time to turn it into art. Prisma has over 30 filters, and they are all completely free with the initial download, which is amazing. On top of that, these filters are truly ones that you have not seen in other apps, since they are inspired by real works of art, such as Picasso, Munk, and even famous paintings and ornaments. The filter ribbon at the bottom half of the screen lets you check the name and get a sample of the original artwork that it’s from, so you can get an idea of what it looks like.
If you find one you want to throw on your image, just tap on it. Prisma takes a few moments to render the filter to go on your image, and some filters may take longer than others. However, once it is rendered and you want to check another one, the app remembers the previous renderings so you don’t have to wait around for it again. Additionally, each filter’s strength can be manually adjusted by sliding your finger horizontally along the image — left is more subtle, and right is more intense.
When you’re satisfied with your newly-created work of art (everyone’s an artist), you can send it off to Instagram or Facebook right away with the appropriate button underneath the image. If you’d rather share it another way, or just save it to your device, tap on the “Share” button to bring up the Share Sheet with more options.
There are also a few settings with Prisma that you can access while in the viewfinder screen and tapping on the cog. From here, you have the option to save original photos, save artwork automatically (each time you apply a filter), and the ability to remove the “Prisma” watermark. Considering that Prisma itself is a free app and lets you remove the watermark without an in-app purchase, it’s worth checking out.
I’ve played with Prisma a bit today (when I’m not hunting for Pokemon), and I’m impressed. The app itself is fairly fast and responsive for the amount of rendering that it must do to generate the art filters, and they’re all pretty high quality. I also love the fact that you can remove the watermark without an in-app purchase, and the option to save originals and artwork automatically is nice, though watch out on the latter if you don’t have a lot of storage space left on your device. The only thing I hope to see changed in a future update is the option to have full portrait or landscape photos, because I’m not a huge fan of only having an Instagram-square crop option in the app. Other than that, I say Prisma is worth a look.
If you’re into fun and unique filter effects for your photos, then Prisma comes highly recommended. Prisma is available on the iPhone App Store for free with no in-app purchases.

Robert Marceau, a famed underwater explorer, has gone missing under mysterious circumstances. Tag along with his fiancée as she descends into the depths of the ocean to find and rescue him. As you make your way through the haunted sunken city of Eden, you’ll need to find all kinds of hidden objects and complete more than 20 mini-games. Abyss includes 40 underwater locations, 16 scenes to search, three difficulty settings, and achievements via Game Center.
Sky Live presents you with the sky visibility percentage in your area over a beautiful backdrop. The main view also allows you to see sunrise and sunset times. Swipe upwards to get even more detailed data like the current moon phase, light pollution levels, and planet, constellation, and star visibilities. All data is viewable up to seven days out, so you can plan accordingly.
You’re able to import any two non-DRM protected songs from your library. You can then manipulate the two digital turntables by sliding your fingers over them. If you lack the necessary DJ skills to create something tolerable, just enable the Automix mode and allow Cross DJ to do the work for you. The app also includes live recording, automatic beat matching, 72 samples, and MIDI support.
BlackCam does one thing and does it well. It provides you with dozens of lens filters to choose from, all of which are shown live on your feed. You can also add simulated grain and vignette, and adjust the contrast, brightness, and exposure at will. The app outputs at full resolution, providing you with the best possible results.
Next requires your complete and utter attention. All you have to do is tap numbers in their correct order as quickly as you can. The difficulty is that the numbers are spread out across a complicated and completely random grid. The game includes two modes, with one requiring you to find all of the numbers at your own pace and the other having you race against the clock. Both allow you to utilize power-ups in case you find yourself stuck.
