QUEST: Complete Your Tasks Like You’re Playing A Game

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.

Most iPhone photo editing apps have the option of applying filters to images. As a result, the App Store is saturate with photo filter apps, and every new release needs something out of the ordinary to distinguish itself from the usual (black and white).

Priime manages to stand out in this arena by offering filters that are inspired by the leading photographers in the world. It offers our different styles to choose from, with an in-app purchase of $0.99 required for an additional style. It also features tools for configuring brightness, vignette and saturation or the image, as well as rotation options.


Tempo App: Tinker With The Speed Of iPhone Videos In Real Time

April 27, 2015 — by Adeel Qayum1


With powerful cameras being part of smartphones people around the world are free to record short videos and share it with their friends and family. These videos can be slowed-downed or made to play faster to give them a unique look. The Tempo Video Editor app by Fly Labs Inc. is a free app that allows you to be creative with the tempo of videos you make.

As the name of the app implies Tempo allows you to slow down videos or speed them up depending on what works for you, while they play in real time. While I appreciated the fact that the app is free I was a bit disappointed to find out that the videos made through it ended up having watermarks which cost $4.99 to be removed. If you are okay with watermarked videos then this app has a lot of fun things to offer.

If you have an iPhone, there might be an instance in your device’s life where you would have used it to take a screenshot. It may have been to post something on social media, or send an image to a friend, or some other purpose.

Regardless, the iPhone provides an easy way to save something useful on the device without requiring a third-party application to store it for you. However, you can end up with a lot of clutter if you take screenshots regularly.
Some applications allow backup of screenshots along with other images in the Camera roll, but if you want an app that specifically backs up screenshots, then you should take a look at Drop Shot.

If you’re a student or an employee who has to write down a lot of lengthy notes in limited time then Office Lens by Microsoft Corporation is an app for you. It’s a free app that lets users take pictures of documents, content written on boards, etc. and convert them to editable MS Word, PDF, and PowerPoint files. It’s a very useful app that will make you feel that you have a tiny scanner instead of an actual iPhone in your pocket.

I’ve always have to be prepared with a notebook and pen in hand when it comes to taking notes in class or a meeting. I have tried taking pictures of notes directly from a black or whiteboard but they don’t come out very clean, and I still have to type or write down the content later on from the image I’ve captured. Office Lens has been created to cater to all the requirements needed in order to properly take pictures from boards, documents, even business cards, and then converting all the text into Word, PDF files, or PowerPoint presentations.
