Bridgefy – Offline messaging

In these days of uncertain net connectivity (you never know when the Government will clamp down!) this app is a welcome addition to communicate with friends and family. This app allows you to communicate with others (who have the same app installed) even when there is no internet connection. It communicates via Bluetooth (both your Bluetooth should on) upto a distance of 100 is ideal for music festivals, sports stadiums, rural communities, natural disasters, travelling abroad, and much more.
You can use Bridgefy as one to one communication directly, if you are within 100 metres of each other. If not, you could still communicate, if there are other Bridgefy users in between. In such cases a mesh mode is automatically created and the message can move through the intermediate users to reach the final recipient. The intemediate users cannot read the message but are used as part of the mesh for communication.
In case of natural calamities, you can also use the broadcast mode – i.e. send the message to all within the range at the same time, even if they are not in your contacts list.
It is always wise to be prepared – what do you think?

Layout from Instagram: Collage

This is a simple app which allows you to stitch upto 9 images together and load them onto Instagram. Instagram allows you to add only one image at a time.

It also helps you tweak many parameters for each photo, including the size, border width or zoom. You are the editor, so feel free to experiment and get creative – tell a story, show off an outfit, or just splice, dice and change the look of your regular photos to convey a mood or theme.

The app also has three handy buttons at the bottom to replace an image, mirror it or flip it upside down. The final product can be quite neat and impressive. It can be further enhanced by using Instagram’s native filters.
