Readit for Windows Phone(Reddit)

Readit is an alternative app for Reddit. You can add multiple accounts, save posts, add friends, send direct messages, post pictures, URLs, text and subscribe to threads.

The app supports notifications for direct messages. The app has a clean interface which is clutter free, making it easy to use. We’ve been using this app for over 2 months with no issues. Anyone who likes Reddit, or wants to read interesting new, learn new things(They have a thread for nearly everything, probably that’s why it is called the “Front Page of The Internet”.

We recommend this app as a must have for people who enjoy reading/learning or need something to pass time while bored or travelling.

Windows 10 updated news

Microsoft has announced that windows 10 will be released for PC and tablets on July 29 with the mobile version following later in the year.
Xiaomi and Microsoft have tied up and a Windows 10 ROM for the Mi4 has been released. The tool to install the ROM will be made available to only a select set of users for now as it is still in the beta stage.
Could this be the game changing moment for Microsoft. The much dreamed of Windows Mobile and Android combination? Only time will tell and as far as we’re concerned, we love the idea.

Advice to our readers: Please refrain from installing Windows 10 mobile preview on your device unless it is your secondary device. On the Lumia 630 dual sim it was buggy and also during the install, the phone was bricked and needed to be recovered using the Nokia retail tool and other steps which took a full day. If this has happened to you, please contact us and we’ll help you.

Windows 10 phone

While we all were waiting for windows 10 to come, Microsoft had released phone insider. An app meant to give windows 10 on those phones who registered to preview it. However Microsoft today updated the app to windows insider. The login problems have gone and I now shows built not available. It also has a link to view phone requirements, but the page doesn’t exist….yet. This is all in preparation for its preview launch next month. We hope you are as excited as we are!!!!

PhotoScrambler

PhotoScrambler:

PhotoScrambler lets you protect your photos from unwanted usage and distribution.

Protect your photos with personal secret code, so that only you and trusted people you give the code to, can see them. Everyone else who doesn’t know your secret code will see just random scrambled images.
With PhotoScrambler you can:
• Encode/decode JPEG and PNG photos
• Take encoded photos with built-in camera
• Share encoded photos with your friends
• Add custom photo-scrambling codes, colors and descriptions
• Choose photo size after processing *
• Define application password
* limited in FREE version of the application

Secured photos will still be saved as photos, so you can store them in your phone’s Pictures libraries, upload them on cloud servers, such as Dropbox, OneDrive or iCloud or similar. They will remain perfectly safe even if the cloud service is hacked!

Photos protected with PhotoScrambler will stay safe even if a curious friend borrows your phone, or if someone steals your phone. Not even a malicious repair person will be able to decode your photos without the code.

Users can scramble and unscramble photos directly from phone’s gallery, by selecting photos and choosing PhotoScrambler from “Share with” application list.

Most of us have used picture locker on windows phone which involves you importing pictures into the app and storing them there. PhotoScrambler is something which is more innovative. On initializing the app, you need to set a password to open the app. Once opened, you choose a photo you’d like to scramble/unscramble, use you camera to click or even share securely. Pictures are scrambled using a code which you decide. You can use this code as a template in the future or use a different one everytime. The photo can be overwritten or a new photo can be maintained which is scrambled. In the gallery you can’t view this picture as its scrambled. You need to unscramble it using the application by entering the code. Even if some one accidently gets these files, its useless as they can’t crack it( not yet at least) as you choose the code to use to scramble it. Only a brute force attack on a supercomputer may be able to crack it!!!

Snaptastic for Windows Phone 7

Snaptastic for Snapchat

Windows Phone 7 users can rejoice. Developers still haven’t forgotten you. If some of you recall, we had earlier posted a review for a client for snapchat which was pulled down from the store so you needed an interop unlocked phone to install the XAP.

Now even users with non interop unlocked phones can snap away.

Snaptastic is great. It lets you view your score, best friends, your friends scores and best friends, their snap stories. You can even upload images from camera or gallery. The text font on image can be changed and you can draw on the images. We found it to be a great app which gets the job done. Not as robust as 6snap which Windows Phone 8 users have, but nevertheless a great app.

Start snapping away now!!

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

Transparent lockscreens

This is one of the most fascinating glitches of windows phone. You can have a transparent lock screen wallpaper. While sliding the lock screen up to unlock, the wallpaper becomes transparent and from certain parts you can even see the underlying tiles or running app!!!
It’s quite easy to do this. Here are the steps:-
1)Either google,create or use the sample wallpapers i have provided.
2)Make sure the format is png while downloading or creating.
3)**MOST IMPORTANT STEP**DO NOT SAVE THE PICTURE ON YOUR WINDOWS PHONE.(it will automatically get converted to a jpg and the trick will not work)
4)to get the file on the phone email it to an account on your phone.You can use the share picture function in your phone browser itself or use your computer to do so.
5)download the image from the email and select use as wallpaper(once again do this directly without saving to the phone).
6)You are all set to enjoy this glitch.
NOTE-if you have a lock screen password, disable it for best effects or else instead of seeing the underlying screen, you will see a copy of your keypad(this too is fascinating and worth checking out)
