Your Snapchat journey truly begins by you posting your first snap. Now that you’ve got a hang of what Snapchat is and how to get around, you might have an idea of what you want to share using the platform. That’s where the snaps come in.
How to use iPhone and iPad
In part 2 of our Snapchat series, we’re taking about the main reason so many of us started using Snapchat – the Stories feature.
Snapchat started as a way to privately exchange self destructing images and video between your friends (insert your favorite teen sexting joke here). All of that’s still there, but now, in 2016, Snapchat has come a long way. Snapchat is no longer just about talking with your friends. It’s now a legit, public facing social network – thanks to the Stories feature.
While your MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air itself can last you several years before it’s time to get a new one, the battery might not make it the entire way through. I bought my current MacBook Air five years ago and already replaced the battery once at the Apple Store. It didn’t die on me, but the health got so poor that I thought it was time for a fresh one.
I feel like our civilisation has already evolved to a point where we don’t accept a call unless we recognize the number or the name. Anything that’s an unknown number or doesn’t have a Caller ID, goes straight to voicemail. But this process is manual. What if we could automate this?
Finally, Netflix has introduced offline playback feature for its mobile apps – for the iPhone and iPad. There’s no offline support for desktop users. Given the risk of increased piracy, that makes sense. But this move means that you’ll be able to binge watch your new favorite Netflix find when you’re community on the metro or when you’re on a vacation, far from cheap/stable internet connection.
Life with 16 and 32 GB iPhones isn’t easy. We’ve already told you about multiple ways you can reclaim storage space. But that usually requires you to delete photos or apps or caches. What if you’re not ready to do that? This trick helps you get rid of the temporary or junk space on your iPhone.
While Siri still isn’t quite up to the mark when it comes to having back and forth conversations and asking obscure, complex questions, it’s gotten pretty good at some key things. Things that a lot of iPhone users use Siri for, like calling someone, sending someone an iMessage, time zone or currency conversion and the like. Siri is so good at these things that I usually skip the UI and ask Siri to do those things for me even when my fingers are right there on the screen (Hey Siri command really helps there). But there’s one more thing you can add to that list – device commands.
After spending a couple of weeks in Beta, and years in anticipation land, WhatsApp has finally made the free video calling feature available to all its users across iOS, Android and Windows Mobile. All you have to do is go to the App Store and update the app (version 2.16.17) and you’ll have the functionality to have a video chat with anyone running the same latest version of WhatsApp. How exactly do you place that WhatsApp video call you ask? Read on to find out.
Gone are the days of unlimited data when you didn’t need to keep track of your Internet and app usage. But here we are now, stuck in tiers of data. The upside is that most plans come with unlimited talk and text, but sometimes it’s easy to lose control of your data usage.
