Not only that, the bubbles are also customizable to the users liking. However, this app is completely free from the Google play store and it has no ads in it.

The only little problem I have with this app is that it doesn't have quick reply action in it to as to reply to the person easily without getting or logging in to the app.

This app is easy to use and can be moved freely to any side of the screen, hence the user will be the one to choose or select the app that he or she wants to be getting the notification through the app.

The feature this app provides is amazing, I've tried it out, it works great and that's why I'm sharing it with you guys. However, this app users artificial intelligence to give life to photo.

With this app, you can type or record any text thereby adding or giving life to photo and it'll say anything you want as it is written or recorded.

Simply get into the app, type something, select a voice (you can choose effect if you want) and once you're done, tap on the play button so that the photo will speak.

With this application, you can get everything right on your finger tips, simply bring down your notification panel and you can see some of the applications atop such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp etc.

However, you can still add your preferred applications by clicking on the Plus (+) button. Also, you can access your quick settings when you bring down your notification panel.

So much rumors have been hovering concerning what Samsung is planning on its Galaxy Note Series "Note 9 precisely" which will probably be launched in August this year. We’ve already heard a lot and few reports about it, and a new render likely gives us our first original look at the devices.

A render of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 has already been leaked by Ice Universe "a Samsung tipster". However, it stated that Samsung was lazy in 2018 and in conclusion, it said that Note 9 will not change much. Hence, it'll just be a small adjustment to Note 8. Although this isn’t confirmed by Samsung to be the final design of the upcoming device.

The render shows the Galaxy Note 9, looking little bigger, with a smaller bezel at the bottom. Unfortunately, Ice Universe did not share any images/renders of the rear of the device, which is supposedly where most of the changes will be happening.

For those in denial, Ice Universe has a solid Samsung track record. He previously broke the Galaxy Note 8 design, the first real-world photos of the Galaxy S8 and every single detail of the Galaxy S9.

As for the specs, the Note 9 will feature 6GB of RAM and the device will either be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset or Exynos 9810 SoC.

The Galaxy Note 9 will not have a fingerprint reader integrated into the display, according to the second tweet by Ice Universe. Instead, it suggests that the fingerprint sensor will be placed at the back of the device.

In another tweet, Ice Universe stated “Note 9 is 2mm shorter than Note 8, and nothing more. You can’t distinguish between them without careful observation.”

The Galaxy Note 9 is therefore not expected to arrive until late summer 2018. Its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8, was revealed on 23 August 2017 and hit shelves on 15 September, with the disastrous Note 7 launching around a similar time.

Trending: Three Google Pixel Smartwatches Reportedly Coming With Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100
Do feel free and tell us what you home about this and if you think that there's more to add to this then, the comment box is yours, share your idea right there!
The Apprise In Technology

Just yesterday Joe Fedewa "an XDA developer" wrote an article about Google's plans towards this year's devices we are to expect. At first we were thinking that Google is only going to roll out the Pixel 3, Pixel 3XL and next-gen Pixel Buds. Luckily, Google smartwatches were included as Google had made an announcement at Google's Fall hardware event 2018.

This information turns out to be true as it came from a reliable source "Evan Blas's" who's a popular tech Twitter. However, a new report claims that we are not going to expect only one smartwatch but there will be three models and they'll feature a Qualcomm chip that was unnamed prior to this point.

According to the report we got from WinFuture, it reads that Google will be rolling out three smartwatches with the codename "Ling, Triton and Sardine". Hence, they don't know the differences between the three variants, weather it's the connectivity, size or something else. What they do include is that the devices will come with GPS, LTE, VoLTE, Bluetooth including apt-X, WiFi, pedometer, heart-rate monitor, and other health features.

Google, Qualcomm, and others have been working on this for over a year. We already knew Qualcomm was set to finally release a new chip for Wear OS devices. It appears these devices will be getting the new chip and it will be called the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100.

The Snapdragon 3100 is a variant of the Snapdragon 2100. It features a quad-core CPU with an unknown clock rate. Qualcomm is using the ARM Cortex-A7 architecture and Adreno 304 GPU. As previously reported, manufacturing remains on the 28nm process. The main benefit of this new chip is a power management integrated circuit that’s being called “Blackghost.”

“Blackghost” may run continuously and separately from the main processor, which is only used when the device is active. This would allow the watch to respond to voice commands without being woke up. There will also be several new power modes, such as the one introduced in Android P, to help users get the best battery life possible.

Besides the Pixel smartwatches, WinFurure also claims the Snapdragon 3100 will be featured in devices from Fossil, Louis Vuitton, Movado, and TAG Huer. Fashion brands have been some of the few who are still supporting Wear OS, so it’s no surprise to see these brands. Hopefully, the new Qualcomm chip will bring more Android OEMs back to the platform.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update arrived with many handy features. And one FCU feature can help you free up disk space on your hard drive using the power of the cloud. It’s known as OneDrive Files On-Demand.

What Do You Think One Files On-Demand Is?

If you’re running the Fall Creators Update on your Windows 10 PC, you can edit your files – stored in your OneDrive cloud storage – on your computer without downloading them permanently. It can be done using OneDrive Files On-Demand. This facility can help you free up disk space on your computer which you can use to store other things if you want.

The files on your OneDrive which you have marked “online-only” are downloaded when you want to edit them. For instance, when you want to make changes to your Powerpoint presentation. After you have done the editing, the version of the file on OneDrive is replaced with the new one.

How To Free Up Disk Space In Windows 10 Using OneDrive Files On-Demand:

You should set up OneDrive on your device in advance to turn on the feature. To sign-in, open the OneDrive app from the Start Menu and follow the setup.

Next, follow the steps mentioned below to enable Files On-Demand on Windows 10 FCU:


  1. Right-click the OneDrive icon in the Notifications area. 
  2. Go to Settings from the drop-down menu.
  3. Under the Settings tab, tick the checkbox that says “Save space and download files as you use them” to turn on the feature and free up disk space on your machine.
  4. Click Ok to save and continue.

After you enable the feature, you can see it working in File Explorer > OneDrive folder. A cloud status icon gets attached to the files and folders which are online-only. You can disable the on-demand feature by following the same steps.

To mark a file or folder as online-only, go the OneDrive folder, right-click the file and click “Free Up Space” in the context menu.


The files you’ve created online or on other devices are online-only by default. If you want a file to be available offline on your current device, click “Always keep on this device” option.


One thing to keep in mind is that turning on OneDrive Files On-Demand for one Windows 10 PC won’t enable it across all of your devices. These settings are tied individually to your devices.

Also, I won’t recommend you to use the Files on-demand feature if your internet bandwidth is limited as any change you make to the online-only files would cost you valuable data. As an alternative, you can check out Google’s Backup & Sync tool which automatically syncs the folders on your hard drive.
