Smash your favorite audio clips together with a personal video, and those sound bites can become even greater! You have them, you love them, and you quote them whenever you can - every movie, T.V. show, interview, and video game has at least one. That moment of reveal, of comedy, of romance; so take it, and add your own personal touch with a video!

Topics give you everything from “Spielberg Made It”, to “Office Weirdos”, to Fave Theme Songs”, and if your search turns up as empty as a mummy’s coffin, then create your own sound bite. After you have picked your quote, start filming, and send your finished selfie video either to your profile page, or to the Internet!

▲ Create your video to keep, send to finds through the app, or put on social media!

▲ Listen to the sound bites, then choose which one to dub.

You can do these by yourself, or you can grab some friends to help you out since many clips have more than one voice to sync to. Send messages (even a happy birthday), contain a scrapbook of inner thoughts, or dub and set your video free online!

To view your dub, simply go to the 'My Dubs' button. You have the option of sharing your dubs on WhatsApp or upload them on any social networking site!

This is the fun combination that finally puts you in the shoes of your favorite actors, in front of the mic with famous singers, and even lets you deliver the one-liners that get the LOLs. Sync up, dub over, and record yourself!

These days, cameras and technology seem to be getting more and more complex – whatever happened to the good old days of point, shoot, and print? You may have found yourself more than once cracking open an old photo album and chuckling as old memories come rushing back.

While the digital age won’t be slowing down anytime soon, you can recapture those images of yesteryear to share with old pals and family in seconds thanks to the magic of Google! Simply position a photo in front of your phone’s camera, and tap the round shutter button at the bottom of the screen. When prompted, position your device over each of the four corner circles until there are none remaining and the image is captured automatically. Easy!

▲ Easy to follow on-screen instructions help you to position and scan your photo correctly.

▲ Voila! If you want to make some small edits, tap ‘rotate’ or ‘adjust corners’, or tap ‘delete’ to start the process again.

No need to worry if your hand is shaky or glare is obstructing part of the image. Thanks to some nifty technology, the app automatically erases glare, corrects the perspective, rotates the image, and crops it for you! If for some reason the cropping is a little too much or too little, you can change it manually by tapping ‘adjust corners’ once the image has been captured as well.

To make sharing and saving those precious memories even easier, you can choose to automatically have your scans saved to Google Photos - the free and secure image hosting service with unlimited storage. Once you capture an image, just follow the prompts to sign up for or log into your Google account and let the app do the rest! Get ready to take a trip down memory lane and secure your favorite moments of the past for generations to come.

Super simple, and is working great particularly as it is still an initial release. Looking forward to seeing what other features will be introduced in later releases!

There is a lot of surveillance that you can accomplish simply by having your camera record in the background. And with this app, you can finally pull off that trick that lets you have an extra eye out in shady surroundings. Are you being followed? Is someone constantly looking your way? At the very least, you can find the answer without showing suspects that you have caught on.

All you have to do is hit the record button on it and your camera will start capturing everything it sees no matter what. You can even set it up to start recording during a certain time of day and turn your phone into a makeshift spy camera. Use its built-in video trimmer to review what you have found and organize the evidence. Keep an eye out for strange goings-on without acting strange yourself!

▲ Simply hit that recording button to start and then cover up the app with something else.

▲ The video will still be captured accordingly and you can use the video trimmer to scan through it.

▲ Schedule an automatic recording and open all sorts of possible ways to keep on spying.
