With that being said, FireFox Public Preview for iOS is now available for download. But there is a little catch, though, the application is currently downloadable for those in New Zealand only. Of course, it will be released worldwide in a couple of days. For now, you can check out some of the outstanding features in Firefox.

When recording a video with our iPhone, there’s a button beside the record/stop button that enables you to snap images while you record. However, the images can only be snapped when you record, and once you’re done with the video, there is no way to extract photos from the video.

Keeping that in mind, we would like to share our thoughts with you on an app we came across. It’s called Taplet, and it allows users to record HD videos and take HD photos during the recording session, just like the default camera app. However, it stands out by giving an option to save any part of a video as an image, with frame-by-frame support.

May 12, 2015 — by Adeel Qayum1


Productivity apps are always welcomed with open arms by iPhone users. App developers look to create new ways to assist users in managing their tasks, and remembering things we’re prone to forget now and then.

As a result, we have an array of task managers and to-do apps offering calendar and email integration, rewards for task completion, and other things to motivate you to get things done.

But QUEST is a newly released app in this genre that does things quite differently. It is actually crossed with a game. The user can create lists, and tasks will be listed as ‘quests’ and the user reaches a higher level upon completing a particular task. The app is geared towards users who are motivated by receiving rewards.

How to use QUEST for iOS

QUEST doesn’t have social integration and you are the only player in this app, so you do not need to sign up for any account to use it.
