How to post photos and videos in landscape or portrait mode on Instagram

by Sébastien Page on Aug 27, 2015

Earlier today, Instagram announced a big change to the way your feed will look like soon by finally allowing users to upload content in landscape or portrait orientation. Up until now, only square images or videos could be uploaded, although there were apps offering a workaround for that, making Instagram a very standardized experience for most.

Now that the company has updated the app to allow for different orientations, we are going to show you how to publish photos or videos in landscape or portrait mode on Instagram. Read More

 

Is Apple Watch the next frontier for ads?

by Sébastien Page on Aug 27, 2015

I just finished tracking a run using the free version of Map My Run, and after saving that workout directly from my Apple Watch, I was presented with the above screen. Granted, I use the free ad-supported version of the Map My Run app, and while I do expect to see ads on the iPhone app, it was kind of surprising to see an ad right there on my wrist. Read More

Nomad Stand for Apple Watch review

by Sébastien Page on Aug 22, 2015

In my apparently endless search for the perfect Apple Watch dock, I have come across the Nomad Stand. Its simple design is what caught my eye at first, but after using it for a few days, I can say there is more to it than meet the eyes.

Most of the stands for Apple Watch I’ve seen so far seem to take the wrong approach. They appear to try too hard to design something that in many cases doesn’t compliment the design of the Apple Watch itself, but actually works against it.

Nomad Stand succeeds where many others have failed. Read More

 

I’ve become addicted to this game, and so will you

by Sébastien Page on Aug 21, 2015

The concept of the game is pretty simple. Two circles are moving in random directions on your screen. Your goal is to tap the screen every time they overlap. The more they overlap, the more you score. Sounds too simple?  Read More
