NeRdS Up!!

This post is all about a few of the Geeky apps that you will be interested in if you belong to a computer related field!!

The apps are selected as follows :

  • Codebox : Closer to machine (Mainly C/Java Algorithms)
  • LearnHTML5: Web frontend
  • MySQL: Web database backend (Coming up in the next post)
  • QPython (Coming up in the next post)

Thus they cover aspect of coding except for the Apps based on scripting languages, which we will be covering in the next post of NeRdS Up.


This app made its mark on the Play Store not only because of its simplistic  yet elegant GUI  but also because of the topics it covered in the application itself!

The application contains a list of important Data Structures and other Algorithms which will be of great use to Computer Science students.

The algorithms are given in two most popular languages C and Java

The app developers have made a simple slide it menu that comes very handy! The programs can be searched from within the app and can be shared too!

Play your favorite Gameboy games on your Windows Phone!


Most of us have played on the famous Nintendo Gameboys. Most of us remember games like Super Mario and Pokemon on the Gameboy. You can now get all nostalgic and relive those moments by playing these games on your Windows Phone.

VDA8 is one such app. It allows you to import ROMs from your Onedrive account or even from your SD card. The interface is clean and easy to use. We enjoyed playing our old games using this app.

As for the question from where to get the ROMs…just search for them online and you’re bound to find them.

Picture locker

“When I show you a picture on my phone,doesn’t mean I gave you permission to scroll through my pictures!!”
This is what goes through our mind quite often.
The solution is simple…hide the pictures you dont want people to see.
Picture locker for windows phone is a simple to use app.
You can import/export multiple pictures and create folders even for them.
Still think someone might see them? Well then there’s an option to further protect the folder by hiding it.
Now unless someone knows you app password,they can access your hidden pictures.
The pictures are encrypted. Since my phone is rooted,I used a file explorer app to open the folder where the app data exists. The pictures were stored in an encrypted format which is tied to your device id(to the extent that even thumbnails and labels are encrypted). So no bypassing file hiding app tricks like in android can be used.
You can even click pictures using the in app camera option to directly save the pictures. The app is picture hub integrated and the files can be also backed up to SkyDrive.
Our advice…go grab it now at

It features a whole lot of features that can be explored!
For obvious reasons this app is a non market app!!

Audio Manager (Hide it Pro)

Title is totally misleading!!
It is actually a file hiding application..  But unlike other file hiding apps this is unique..
When you open the app the main window shows you audio controls i.e. Controlling the volume of ringing and notification and others
Thus even if your parents or anyone else opens the app they just see a volume control app!!!! (smart!!)

But on long pressing the title “audio manager” comes the actual app.
– hide pictures, videos
– plugins for hiding apps
-encrypting your files, incognito browsing feature for stock browser
– hide SMS too..

And many more features!
