It’s official. Instagram has opened up multiple account support for almost everyone.
Anyone who has the latest version of the app, either on Android or iOS, should have the feature built into the application.
When Apple introduced its new iPhone lineup this past September one of the stand-out features was a display technology called ‘3D Touch.’
With the exception of the Huawei Mate S, Apple’s 6s and 6s Plus smartphones are the only devices to possess these touch-sensitive displays.
One of the first developers to take advantage of the new technology was Instagram, who brought 3D Touch capabilities to its iOS app in November 2015. Now, after a few months of trying it out on iOS, Instagram has brought it to Android with an update that effectively replicates the functionality without the actual display tech. [Read more…]

If you’ve downloaded InstaAgent, an iOS and Android app designed to let you see who’s viewed your Instagram profile, you might want to delete it from your smartphone. According to a new report, the app – whose full name is ‘Who Viewed Your Profile – InstaAgent’ – is not only storing usernames and passwords in plaintext and sending them to a remote server, but also using those very credentials to log in and post unwanted images to users’ profiles.
InstaAgent has since been removed from both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store, but so long as it’s on your phone, it can still send your information. [Read more…]
The popular photo-editing app, owned by Google, launched version 2.1 and is now capable of editing RAW files.
“Traditionally, shooting and editing RAW photos has been the domain of DSLR cameras and desktop software”, a Google engineer said, adding that combined with the RAW capabilities added to Android phones last year, “RAW is now becoming important for mobile photography, too”.
Snapseed’s new version allows Android users to edit the RAW files shot on their smartphones, as well as RAW files from digital camera that have been converted into DNG files.
One of the nice features on Android phones is the ability to access the camera without having to go through the annoying process of unlocking the phone. While this feature is very comfortable, it opens a door to all kind of mischief. Especially if you have access to a friend`s phone. You can always take some funny photos that their parents would be surprised to see if they flip through the gallery. This is funny but really quite harmless, researchers from the University of Texas discovered that once the camera is active, it can be used to bypass the home screen lock and access the phone. And that is quite less harmless.
One problem that we photographers (and other creative pros) run into a lot is the need for additional screen real estate. For those on the go and working from laptops, it’s really not convenient to carry around an extra LCD monitor in your bag (obviously). But, if you have an iPad or Android tablet, you may have just found your answer neigh at hand.
Instructables user Ironman 54 recently detailed the process of easily turning his iPad into an external monitor for his computer.
