A New App to Play Around With

Periodically, while scrolling through the sea of content that appears on my social media feeds, I come across a sponsored post that is promoting a product. 
In this case, I saw a post promoting an iPhone app, Lumyer. 

Here’s a quick review of Lumyer

This picture of my daughter was magically enhanced to become something else. 

This is what it became. 


You’ll notice it became a video file. Well, that’s okay because I can still send it in a text and post in on Facebook or Instagram seemlessly. 

There are myriad options for overlaying filters within the app. Oh, I did have to pay $1.99 to remove the watermark on my images / videos. 
Try it out and have some fun.

What Central Park Looks Like Since Pokemon Go’s Release

Central Park pokemon

You’ve seen articles about it creeping into your social feeds. You may have even seen a few people in your neighborhood or populated areas holding their phones, walking about aimlessly.

This walk is different from the regular “text and walk” we’ve all grown accustomed to. This particular walk has Pokemon Go stamped on it.

Just check it out… Here’s Central Park in New York City.

 

Nintendo sure isn’t complaining, and neither are its stock holders. Market value for Nintendo has increased by $7.5 billion, according The Verge. Absolutely insane. This game is not only sweeping the nation, it’s becoming a phenomenon.

Hats off to Nintendo though, they’ve managed to create a game that successfully mixes reality with virtual reality. It’s getting people outside, walking around … but they’re all on their phones and not interacting much with other human beings. You can decide whether or not that’s good.

P.S. I read one account that states Pokemen Go has full access to read your Gmail. Just keep that in mind. Potential privacy concern.
