The app is great for sports shots, pictures of kids or pets or even to analyse your cricketing action, frame by frame!
Many costly phones have this feature: in a single click, you take many shots (as many as 30 per second) and then select the best one—maybe where the smile is the best or the eyes are not closed. This is especially useful in group photos when all the heads keep moving one way or the other and there is probably only one shot which is just right!
This simple app allows you to achieve just that. It takes up to 30 shots per second. Just hold the shoot button for continuous burst. There is no lag. The lite version is sufficient and free. The full, paid, version also supports flash, focus and zoom, for a nominal price. The app is great for sports shots, pictures of kids or pets or even to analyse your cricketing action, frame by frame! It is recommended that you should shoot in good light conditions, not shake the camera (although the subject may keep moving), hold the shoot button for continuous burst shots and then pick the best one later. It is a must-have for those who want great photos with no second-chances. https://goo.gl/km3SLS
Remember the Milk
This is one of the popular task managers: simple in its approach and extremely user-friendly. You can enter the tasks by date and time, give priority to each task by assigning colours and, best of all, you can manage your tasks from anywhere: your phone (there is a version each for Android, iPad & Blackberry phones) or your computer. You can manage your tasks offline and also integrate them with Google calendar. Sharing of tasks is easy and so is getting reminders—by email, by Instant Messenger or by SMS.
Here, again, the free version is great for day-to-day use. If you are a professional user, you get unlimited auto-syncing with Remember the Milk online, get reminded with notifications for tasks due or nearby and more! See www.rmilk.com
/pro for details.
In short, it is the best way to manage tasks: Never forget the milk or anything else again! https://goo.gl/cTwMtM
I, often, get disturbed late night by unwanted, unimportant calls. Also, many a time, I get a wrong number at 2.30am! Sounds familiar? Well, this app helps you avoid such situations. Aptly called ‘I’m Sleeping’, once you activate it and set your sleeping time (going to bed and waking up), it will put your phone automatically in silent mode during those times. So, no more annoying late-night calls! But what if there is an emergency? Well, you have an option for setting a ‘white-list’ of numbers that can call you any time of the day or night. So you need not worry about missing a single call from your old mother or your loving son, from anywhere in the world. There is also another setting which allows calls to get through, if the caller is repeatedly dialling your number. A great app for sleeping soundly! https://goo.gl/XKfuzR
