Fastcut – video shorts in minutes

Video shorts is the new rage on social media. Unlike photo editing, making great videos has always been in the realm of laptops and PCs, simply because of the number of step needed. First you get to shoot some great content, then snip it up into small usable chunks and squeeze as much action as possible into the smallest amount of time, well kind of.

Ticklr – customize those boring notifications

Lollipop made big improvements with notifications and we thought it was really hard to make it any better until we came across Ticklr. This tiny app makes notifications color coded, can wake up the screen if you need it, control text speed and leave you room for more customizations. Its slick and brings very useful features to a seemingly simple notifications area. – TheAppCurators

If you snap a lot of pictures on your phone, the question is are you good enough at finding them again? Focus lets you tag, organize and view pictures. A nice replacement for the default image gallery. The app also lets you view image details and password protect private photos.  Simple and useful, try it out. – TheAppCurators

TED Talks really do not need an introduction, but we thought of mentioning the app for the few who have not tried it yet. A great collection of inspiring, fascinating talks and topics from remarkable people. Allows offline watching of videos if you have boring long commutes. A nice curated list of topics and talks to guide you.
