Hey everyone! Mekul is back with another post and today I am going to talk about the best Photo apps for iPhone and iPad. So without further ado, let’s get started.
Probably the best photo app there is on the App Store. The simplicity to use it makes it even better. The options that you have to edit the photos are very good like brightness, frames, contrast, options are very good. The option of frames are broad. This app probably has a lot more features than a free photo app on the App Store. Download Snapseed now from the App Store.
PhotoToaster is a great app, especially when looking for professional filters, frames and FX. There is an FX Brush that allows you to brush in areas of focus and colour, and find that a cool feature. It also has unlimited undo’s which is great because many apps still don’t have that feature. This app is available for $3.99. Download Snapseed now from the App Store.
I might say that a photo editor is great at filters and frames, and brightness and all that jazz, but really this app is really worth checking out for some features like, red-eye removal, whitening teeth, effects, memes, stickers do drawing features. It is worth checking out and one of my favourites, this app is avaliable for free. Download Snapseed now from the App Store.
Moving on to movies, this app is Apple’s simple video editing app (it isn’t as good as the computer version), it does the job well. This has slow/fast-mo features, trim and split in movie making. You can choose from some great trailers, or movie themes. iMovie is avaliable for $6.99. Download iMovie now from the App Store.
Thanks for reading, sorry for not posting, see you later. Mekul
Hello! Mekul is back with another post, which today I am writing about, the best Computers for Gaming! Now, all of these are not going to be cheap and cheerful, but the last one, I will try to give a cheep but relatively good for gaming.
The Pacstar Gaming/Video Editing Pro 2014
This computer has an excellent Intel Core i7-4770. It has 8GB RAM, a Samsung/Sandisk 120GB SSD SATA III for hard drive (though on the website, it says it also has a Toshiba/WD/SEAGATE 2TB, sounds better!). For a not well known brand, it actually sounds quite good since it has all those features, Windows 8.1, but you might want Windows 7. It will cost $1,499 and it is recommended by APC magazine.
Mekul’s rating: 8/10. It would be good if you could downgrade to Windows 7.
Dell Alienware Aurora R4
If you know nothing about computers and I said ‘Alienware’, would you be scared? Well, you should be scared of the Intel Core i7-4820, with 16GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, Windows 7 Home Premium. An Alienware Standard Optical Mouse is included in the price, but for an extra $88, you can get a Alienware TactX mouse. To keep the CPU cool, the R4 uses liquid to keep it cool. What I like about it is that it comes with Windows 7 Home Premium and I know some people don’t like Windows 8. If you really want to you can get Windows 8.1. There is software designed for the R4 like customising the colour of the lights on the R4 and more. There are customisable options available on Dell’s website with the R4 like different models of the Core i7, chassis, graphics card, etc. The R4 starts at $1,998.99.
Mekul’s Rating: 10/10. If you are super serious about gaming, this is for you.
iMac 27″ Desktop A Mac is not always considered a gaming computer, more well known as an all in one. Though, with a Core i5 4670, maybe you’ll think again. 8GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 775M. It is configurable to a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 which if you are really serious about gaming, this is for you but the Core i5 is still great. It comes with OS X Mavericks with built in apps such as iWork and iLife. This is also family friendly and can be used for other things than gaming.
Mekul’s Rating: 9/10. It is pretty cool and a wide screen is a pro.
iBuypower Revolt A960 This is a very compact computer full with lots of goodies. 8GB RAM, AMD A10 6800k, Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 and a cool lighting system. According to PC Mag, it does well on on 3D games but no so well on Photoshop and CineBench, but hey, we are only looking at gaming here. As I said at the top, I’ll give you a cheap but reasonable gaming computer. Well, at Walmart, you can get it for $700!
Mekul’s Rating: 8/10.
So that comes to the end of the post. More posts will be coming soon! Do not worry! Singing off, Mekul.
Note: This was supposed to be a scheduled post, but it did not upload. Sorry about that!
Just a quick post! iDownloadBlog is hosting a stream for the WWJC today. If you would like to see it, please click on this link.
As for me, do not worry. More posts will be coming!
Social media and micro-blogging site, Twitter has unveiled a revamped profile page to its 241 million users.
It is starting to look a bit like a Facebook profile page. You can add a larger profile photo, customise your header image, pin your favourite tweets to the top, and more.
Visitors to your page can also just view your tweets, tweets with photos/videos, and replies. There is also bigger photos and tweet positioning, filtered tweets and other good stuff allowing your visitors to learn everything you say is important about yourself.
The layout of the new profiles are only available to a small amount of users but if you sign up to Twitter now you get the new layout.
That’s it from me! Signing off, Mekul.
Here is a surprise for Microsoft Office and iPad lovers. A press release is being hosted by Microsoft’s new chief executive in San Francisco this morning. The CEO said Office for iPad is being released today.
Office for iPad requires Office 365 for editing features. The subscription will cost $6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year. If you don’t want the subscription, you can view documents, presentations, spreadsheets, but you can’t edit them. The subscription buys you access to Office 2013 apps for Mac, Windows and mobile. The apps include Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote and more.
The apps will be native iPad apps which means they will be individual, native iPad apps. The apps will be released today, free of charge. Word, Excel and PowerPoint for iPad support standard Office files and integrates with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage for syncing content across devices and platforms. Unfortunately, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, etc. are not supported.

That’s it for today’s post! Thanks for reading and I’ll post soon. Signing off, Mekul.
Hello! Mekul is back with an iOS update! Yes iOS 7.1 is out with CarPlay support, new Siri voices and improvements, Touch ID improvements and much more! It is now available to the public right now, but hold on! Just sit here for a few more minutes and I will tell you a bit more on what Apple has released!
Jailbreaking and Downgrading
So, in my last post, I said that an iOS 7.1 jailbreak would be unlikely because of what iH8sn0w tweeted.
Now, he said that the iOS 7 kernel was patched in the beta of iOS 7.1. It doesn’t look like a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 is going to come out soon. MuscleNerd said on Twitter to stay away from iOS 7.1 if you are a jailbreaker though you can downgrade if you saved your SHSH blobs on your iPhone 4, but if you like to lose your jailbreak, plug in your iDevice into iTunes (evasi0n7 disables OTA by default) and update to iOS 7.1.
Though we may see a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 because the evasi0n team says they have a few kernels up their sleeves…
