Before there were social networks, there were social sites. Devi8t for DeviantART allows you to enjoy one such website right from the Modern UI of your device. DeviantART is one of the oldest platforms for artists to showcase their creations and for users to comment on all manner of art — drawings, paintings,...

You may have seen plenty of ports on the Windows Store, but this one can handily be termed as Port Royale. A Windows 8.1 version of the universally popular PicsArt app is now available. And this mobile photo editing application brings a number of tools right in the Metro UI. The editor, for instance, offers an...

Been a while since we’ve covered a photography app, but this new one, although comes with a multitude of features, also comes with a rather odd name. Atlantas. Try searching for it in search engines, almost impossible to locate it in first try. Anyway, it is essentially a really easy to use collage maker that allows...

Take a look at competing mobile app stores, particularly Google Play, and you will find an absolute plethora of apps that offer customization, backgrounds, screensavers and whatnot. For better or for worse (probably the former) this is not quite the case on the Windows Store. Microsoft’s flagship app repository is...

Long have I yearned to type this! The official 500px app has finally arrived on the Windows Store, and it is just as intuitive and engaging as it is on other competing platforms. So much so that Microsoft took some time out to talk about this in detail on the official Windows blog. If nothing, this is a sure fire sign...

The mobile revolution has brought around many things. But one win you just have to give to these modern apps is just how easy they make complex photography tasks. Take the mildly complex (for beginners, at least) task of creating photo collages, for instance. I recall the now discontinued Microsoft Picture It!...

Time for another creatively titled app. This one is actually the lite version of a premium photography app that goes by the name Selectiv, so along with a creative name it is also a bit of a play on words. The app, as you may have guessed from the name and the image above, is all about adding selective effects to...

Previously flying under the name Carousel, Adobe Revel is another of the many mobile photo services. This one, however, comes from Adobe the design and multimedia software titan. Photo syncing and basic image editing capabilities are on offer in this well designed and highly rated application. It provides options to...
