Groopic for iOS simply merges the photographer's image to the group picture. Put simply, the photographer gets included too in a group photo. No more setting up of external tripods, using timers and chairs, and no more asking help from a stranger.

Unfortunately, in most group photos, the photographer is always left out. Or, a group photo is never complete because two photographers have to switch so one or the other is always left out. Groopic solves this problem with an app that will show everybody in every group photo. No one needs to be left out.

Groopic gives you complete groupie pics in 3 easy steps: Simply take two pictures, use the app to mark the photographers, and the Groopic app does the rest. It automatically combines the two pictures into one complete group picture.

Here's How It Works:

Groopic is the creation of Eyedeus Labs, a company that develops computational photography solutions for smartphones, with over 30 years of experience in innovative imaging solutions. Eyedeus is based in Lahore, Pakistan.

Ever wanted to catch those nasty itchy fingers trying to grab your iPhone without your permission?

Well, as the popular cling goes, there is always an app for that!

Meet Guardian Cam, the iOS app that spies on anyone who tries to “spy” on your iDevice. Once activated, Guardian Cam automatically takes a picture of anyone who touches your iPhone or iPad.

The Guardian Cam app replaces the home screen with a dummy screen. If the dummy screen is touched the front-facing camera automatically takes a picture — good news for those who want to protect their iPhone’s or iPad’s security and privacy.

The app even has an upgrade for auto-flash in low light, an icon badge that displays the number of photos captured, and even an optional audio alarm that will not shut off until it runs after one minute. All photos are even dated and saved.

How To: Remotely Spy, Monitor SMS, Text Messages

The Guardian Cam app is useful in order to guard against anyone using someone else’s iPhone or iPad without the owner’s knowledge. It’s also a foolproof way to catch anyone in the act of spying on the contents of any iDevice. The ultimate protection of course is against anyone attempting to steal the device, since the loud alarm will discourage anyone from finishing the attempted thievery. In short, anyone attempting illegally to look at a file, open an app, make a call, or to steal the device, is automatically caught on camera or subjected to a loud alarm.

If hard proof is needed to accuse someone, the outcome from Guardian Cam is all the proof you need.

Guardian Cam supports English and Japanese. It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, and 5; the 3rd to 5th generation of iPod Touch; and iPad. Of course, the iDevice must have a front-facing camera.

Mobile Browsers were developed with specific goals; some were designed to be cost effective, while some are designed to handle multimedia tasks well.

In the bandwidth savings side, Opera Mini still leads the pack, allowing on-the-go users to save money on internet data. But here's the ugly side: it doesn't handle interactive and dynamic websites very well, not even the Opera Mobile.

Skyfire Browser, on the other hand, is a browser of choice for those who want to enjoy full web experience in their fingertips. Its unique network optimization technology gives you a richer, smarter and more fun mobile web experience. It can stream virtually all types of multimedia content such as audio mp3s and videos (e.g. YouTube) straight from your hand-held device. But here's the big turn-off: it's NOT free, and it's a resource hogger, so expect for lags and frequent crashes.

Why not enjoy the same multimedia content you used to enjoy on Skyfire and save big amount of data at the same time? Well, this is exactly what Maxthon Browser is all about. It's Opera Mini and Skyfire combined into one -- amazingly fast, secure, lightweight & FREE!

You can visit, an HTML5 Internet speed test website, and to see for yourself that this browser really supports HTML5.

You must have already aware of HTML5. It'a next-generation web technology that provides a standard for playing audio and video files. Advanced mobile browsers such as the built-in browser on your Android/iPhone and third-party apps like Opera Mobile and SkyFire support HTML5.

But here's the problem:

Not all websites are built with HTML5. Which means whenever you play any media files embedded on  non-HTML5 sites, they'll prompt you to download it.

While you can always download the media file on your phone for later streaming (a podcast perhaps), why not play it right away? Doing the latter will not only save you time but also disk space.

You might want to enjoy a podcast before you finally drift off to bed, so here I'm going to share you a simple workaround on how to play MP3 and video files embedded on a website straight from your Android/iPhone browser -- no need to download.

Here's how:

Step 1 On your mobile browser, obtain the direct link of the file. In Opera Mobile we usually do it by opening the link in a new tab, until a download dialog pops up, as seen below (notice the download link):

With the above example, our direct link is: Copy it.

Step 2 Using your HTML5 browser (we recommend Opera Mobile), head to W3school Audio TryIt site. For video, point your browser here.

On your mobile browser, you should see something like this:

Step 3 In the <source> tag, replace the src attribute with the direct link of the file. Once you've done that, hit "Edit & Click Me" button.

And voila, you should be able to play the MP3 file directly on your mobile browser — no need to download boatloads of audio/video files!

In this socially-connected world, it's kind of a sin when you cannot hit that tiny shutter on your phone, add a '70-esque look on it, and then share it with your friends using this well-celebrated app in the world: Instagram.

Instagram is one of the most successful startup companies who made it big in the social media scene, attracting the world's biggest online empire — Facebook.

While nobody knows what the future holds for Instagram after its recent acquisition with Facebook, one thing is clear: video-sharing apps like Viddy will soon take the lead, making it the next big thing in social media.

Viddy is quite straightforward to use. If you're opening the app for the first time, you may need to create an account first. Simply connect with friends via Twitter, Facebook and your phone’s address book, and you're good to go. As with Instagram, you can go and pull a video from your gallery, or shoot a new one. Once a video is selected, trim the clip as you see fit using a film strip timeline seen at the top of the screen.

Once trimming is done, you can add cinematic look on your clip by applying "filters" (well they called it "production packages"). You'll surely find it enjoyable to select music, apply transition effects, and do the necessary edits to make your video looks professional — just like film.

As with Instagram, Viddy users also have a feed of other users’ activities. Users may also comment and like posts, and see what videos are trending or popular.

I'm beyond confident that Viddy will explode just like Instagram did. Viddy just got another financial boost from its new backers and partners including high profile celebrities and tech luminaries Will Smith’s Overbook Entertainment, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, Shakira and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. This notable backing should propel the momentum of Viddy, which is now surging in popularity.

Deliver requires no pesky clicking and configurations and it is extremely fast and easy. All you have to do is download, install, and launch the app on your local network and you're good to go.

Here's a quick guide on how to transfer large files from iPhone to another iDevice over Wi-Fi network with Deliver:

Step 1 Download and install Deliver for iPhone, iPod and iPad HERE. For Mac, get it HERE.

Step 2 Launch the app. It should bring down a quick introduction on how to use it. But here's the gist: tap or click on a little bubble icon.

Note: you also need to launch Deliver on your Mac or any iDevice you wish to send your files to.

Step 3 Clicking on that bubble icon should bring up a list of other devices connected to the same network running Deliver. Just choose the one you want to send a file to and then click or tap the plus button.

Note: don't click the text button (looks like a rectangle with three lines), it's for sending a text message.

Step 4 From the list of available iDevices, just choose what you want and then Deliver will transport your file in an instant. You'll be surprised by how fast your large-sized files make it from your iPhone to your laptop.

Deliver for Mac and iOS is definitely a must-have app you should install. But just as nobody is saint to give anything useful for free with no flaws, you may also experience frequent crashes on your Mac. Deliver for Mac is a little buggy and the interface definitely needs a face-lift. The iOS version, on the other hand, works perfectly so hopefully the Mac version will catch up soon.
