We already know that Instagram’s become just a merge of many other apps, but at this point, it’s getting ridiculous. Its latest feature is called “Candid,” and it lets you capture and share what you’re doing right now, with both the front and the back camera taking the photo. Sounds familiar? Yup, it’s the same as BeReal, which is, ironically, marketed as “anti-Instagram.”
Earlier this year, we told you about a new social media app BeReal, nicknamed “anti-Instagram.” Its popularity has been increasing and it recently hit the #1 spot among Apple Store’s free apps. Can you guess what happened? Yup, you’re right, Instagram tried to copy it!
While it’s been known lately for copying TikTok, Instagram took a break from it and changed its focus. Just like BeReal, Instagram now also has a double camera feature that captures your surroundings and yourself simultaneously.
If you like photographing plants and flowers, you might also want to learn what they’re called. I sure know I can never get enough of shooting them, and I’m always curious to discover their names so I can learn something more about them.

Is it just me or is everyone sick of Instagram these days? The once photography-centric sharing app has now morphed into an advertisement heavy look-at-me-fest with an emphasis on video, not even still photographs. Well never mind, because there’s another option in town, the app called BeReal which only lets you post one image a day.
It’s actually not a new app, however. It was launched in 2020 but recently has gained a lot more users and a large following from Gen Zers.
When you go on vacation or even a short getaway, you probably want to find the best spots for taking photos. I know I do. Well, there’s now an app that helps you do it no matter where in the world you are.
NoFilter is a new app that helps photographers and travelers to discover the best photo locations, whether they’re across the world or even just in their neighborhood. It merges Google Maps, photography, and social networking, and it’s a pretty interesting concept.
If you ever thought about reporting live from a crime scene, now is your chance to try it out. Well, sort of.

If you’ve ever helplessly looked at a pile of random Lego bricks and thought “what on Earth do I make from this,” your problem has been solved. Brickit has made a really cool AI-powered app that helps you make something out of that messy pile of Legos. All you need to do is point the camera at the bricks. The app will scan them and give you suggestions of what you can make.
