Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Pack Together Multiple Memories with PicPac Camera
Today is Photography Day here on the XDA Portal, or so it seems. Earlier, we covered XDA Elite Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD‘s new distribution method for the fantastic Focal camera app. Now, we have something to help you capture and display photographs and memories in an entirely different way.
PicPac Camera by XDA Forum Member genliang.guan takes a very different approach than what’s seen in most camera apps. Rather than shooting single captures, PicPac is more of a picture combiner. Inspired by photographer Adde Adesokan’s Triptychs of Strangers collection, PicPac’s main functionality combines three captures into a vertical collage.
The result, while admittedly is somewhat hipster, is quite becoming for a large number of shot types. The app also supports combining nine images together for an even more diverse collage. Although this effect can easily be replicated in post-processing after standard shots have been taken, it’s nice to have this done for you in a streamlined manner.
Head over to the application thread to get started. Just please be careful when zipping up those skinny jeans.
