Patch adds background blur to iPhone-shot photos

The iPhone 7 Plus comes with a dual rear camera and a new Portrait mode that creates a faux depth-of-field effect for, well, portraits. If you don’t have that version of an iPhone, there’s an app that replicates that. Called Patch, the app makes use of neural networks to analyze a photo and determine the subject matter. It’s not as serious a tool as you would expect, it’s more a fun thing to play around with. And since developers anticipated it won’t always accurately find the outline of your subject, you can adjust the mask manually by highlighting or erasing areas affected by the blur. It works best when taking a picture of a person straight on. The app comes with an in-app purchase option ($0.99) to get rid of the tiny watermark Patch adds to the photos you edit on it.

Google speeds up and redesigns Gmail on iOS

Google revamps the Gmail app for iOS and gives it a new look, the “undo send option,” and faster search capabilities. Two years might be a bit too long of a wait but at least the five second “undo send” feature is now in the iOS app. But the biggest but probably something that will go unnoticed is the quicker search capability of the email app. According to AppleInsider tests, a multi-term search of a 55,000 email archive returned results almost instantly instead of around 11 seconds that takes to complete said search. Scrolling is also faster as well as receiving notification. Google has also added spelling suggestions into the app and lets users swipe on an email to archive or delete the message.


Record Bird adds Apple Music integration, keeps you posted on new releases by your favorite artists

Record Bird makes it easy for you to find out if your favorite musicians releases new material. The iPhone app now adds Apple Music integration to its existing support for Spotify and Facebook. Version 1.3 of the app gets access from Apple’s music streaming service to scan for artists in your library. The artists it finds will automatically be added to your list of followed artists. When new material is released, the app will now offer quick links to stream via Apple Music or buy the song from iTunes. Aside from getting a glimpse of the new releases, the app also has a Discover pane to bring your attention to new artists you might like. The app is available for free download on the App Store.

Twitter tried out ‘muted words’ feature on iOS then pulled it out

Twitter seems to be experimenting a new feature to help curb harassment and bullying on its platform. A number of iOS users spotted a new “muted words” feature that lets you block certain keywords, phrases, and hashtags from showing up. The feature was then pulled. According to a source, it was enabled earlier than it was scheduled to appear but the option will supposedly be available in future iterations of the app. Based on the screenshot above, the feature can be enabled or disabled from the Notifications menu. We just have to wait and see if Twitter does plan to introduce this to a larger audience.
