Have Your Social Media Stand out Using These Five Photo/Video Apps

Nowadays, you have to up your game on Instagram. Beautiful, eye-catching photos and videos are constantly taking up the space on your newsfeed, and who doesn’t like it when their profile grid is spectacularly on point? The little squares that showcase what you like and who you love should be high-quality – no one wants to see a bunch of blurry, grainy pictures that are unappealing to the eye. Luckily, there are hundreds of photo and video apps available online, and here are Rsquare Media’s top five to choose from.

First up on the list is Snapseed, a beautiful and simple all-purpose photo editor for image enhancements. This app does it all – it gives the user a variety of options to work with concerning lighting, sharpening and of course cropping and rotating. Not only does it come with a huge variety of filters, it also allows    users to make selective adjustments. This allows you to brighten up that shadowy face in the back of the photograph, or to contrast Becky’s glowing face against the similar background. This app is available on the App Store.

 

 

Another app that really shines through with its efficiency is VSCO. This app is all-in-one: you can edit and enhance images just like every other app, as well as use elegant filters specially designed for VSCO users. The filters are subtle and add a very beautiful touch to the photographs. VSCO also serves as an online photo sharing platform – VSCO users can share photographs using the app with other fellow photographers and designers. They may also choose to publish the photos directly onto Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play, as well as PC platforms.

Another great app is called Camera+: the app has many photo editing tools to update your photo editing skills. Along with the usual features, Camera+ also

has a Stabilizer shooting mode to help you take sharp photos. A special part of the app called Clarity is designed to make adjustments to improve upon photos. Want to capture that beautiful fire on the night of the annual barbeque? Just turn to this app and you’ll have it under control. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

 

 

 

An app that really caught my eye was iMovie. I had used the software on MAC desktops before, however the phone version of Apple’s iMovie was very easy

to use and apply. Its interface was very similar to that of MAC desktop versions, and it made it incredibly easy to cut and edit videos in any way I wished. Not only can you use the tools to shorten or lengthen the videos, you can add text, music, transitions and voiceovers – all on your phone! This app is available on the App Store.

Last on our list, PowerDirector, a great video editing software, is available to be used on your phone. The app resembles iOs’ famous iMovie app, and displays a user-friendly but powerful editing tool that can be used to edit, cut, lengthen or change any video on your phone. You are also able to add a title and set of features such as filters and transitions. What I also liked about this app is that the initial cost is simply $3.88, and this helps you remove the watermark that is present on all free videos created by the app. This app is available on Google Play.

 

 

As you can see, these are only FIVE of the hundreds of great apps out there, designed to keep your media completely error-free and appealing. However, it is still hard for companies to keep on top of their website graphics and images, and remain on the upmost frontier of modern brand promotion.

Work Smarter, Not Harder – Five Great Productivity Apps to Use Today

We’ve all been there – struggling to make it through a homework assignment, counting down the minutes until the end of the work day, or finding several tasks to complain about all the time. We cross one item off the list and can immediately find three more tasks to replace it. Having a huge list of pending work can definitely pull you down and make you not want to even start. However, there are now tons of new apps and programs available that can greatly help you in getting your work done, efficiently and successfully.

First up on the list is Tide, a beautiful and simple app that combines the time management method called Pomodoro, along with various samples of white noise or sounds.

Personally, using this app makes me feel very relaxed as well as competent. The Pomodoro technique is actually one used by many apps of this kind, as it was first developed in the 1980s. It basically shows one how to work in blocks of time, first spending 25 minutes immersed in your task, followed by a 5 minute break. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

 

 

Another app that really shines through with its efficiency is Evernote. This app is all-in-one: you can create tons of separate notebooks, keeping track of any and everything you wish.

Since I love making lists and getting my thoughts down, this app really helped me with organizing lists in different places. You can take photos of things you want to remember or buy, and add those to your digital notebooks as well. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play, as well as PC platforms.

 

 

A great app for college students is called Forest: I used this in college and it really made me aware of how important it is to stay focused and work smarter,

not harder. This is a very useful app: you get work done and also support a great cause. Here’s how it works: you use a timer to work in blocks of time,

similar to Tide. However, as you’re working, you are growing virtual trees in a digital forest on the app. You grow more trees the longer that you work, and the coins that you earn are actually used to plant real trees, as Forest partners with the nonprofit Trees for the Future. How amazing! This app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

An app that really caught my eye was Simple Habit Tracker, a way totrack your habits. Sounds strange, right? It’s interesting to see how our habits are formed, psychologically or subconsciously.

We all pick up “bad habits”, and these repetitive actions can be very destructive over the long run. This app helps you to realize what those bad habits are, and to change them. You can also record the good habits you have, to keep track of how long you accomplish them. This app is available on the App Store.    

 

Last on our list, Trello is a productivity app that allows you to create multiple to-do lists. You can see what different projects you have to finish, and you can quickly prioritize what you need to do first versus last. Trello also allows you to schedule tasks to others who use the same app, making it easy for you to work with friends or colleagues. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

 

With so many ways to stay focused, you might think that businesses have it easy. However, it is very hard for companies to remain on the upmost frontier of modern brand promotion. Thus, many are turning to creative marketing companies to ensure effective brand promotion in today’s age.

The Impatience Economy

in-app purchases m-commerce

We live in a consumerist, Instant Gratification driven world – where an instant response is sought in almost anything we do. According to www.entrepreneur.com, this physicological term is defined as “the desire to experience pleasure or fulfillment without delay of deferment.” (“The Psychology of Instant Gratification and How It Will Revolutionize Your Marketing Approach,” n.d.). A few common examples – watching content when we want and how we want (Netflix, VOD, HULU, etc.), consuming food when we want and how we want (24/7 fast food, TV dinners, 24/7 restaurants, takeout, delivery, etc.), engaging with people socially when we want and how we want (WhatsApp, Snapchat, Facebook, etc.), exercizing when we want and how we want (Daily Burn, 24/7 Gyms, etc.) – the list goes on.  Welcome to the  “Impatience Economy”, a term developed by Rsquare Media CEO – Rajiv Jadhav, has just begun and is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Aside from the aformentioned examples, the “Impatience Economy” is very active in the technology/business world. This economy is surprisingly investing a lot of money in In-App Purchases through applications stores such as Apple’s App Store and Google Play. In-App purchases require the user to spend real money in the game in order to enhance the in-game character, purchase additional lives – so game progress is not lost, bestow benefits upon other players, etc. Popular apps such as Candy Crush Saga and Subway Surfers are known for In- App purchases. According to an article posted on ENew!, “ Candy Crush earns $850,000 per day.” The people that play these games usually are impatient and use real money to quickly earn lives or boosts in these games, not noticing the amount of money – which these mini-transactions amount to on an ongoing basis. The impatience of consumers is bringing billions of dollars to these businesses. Find out how you ride this wave to cash in. Call 646.249.3561 for a free phone consultation.

Snapchat and the Evolution of p2p messaging on Social Media

Snapchat Social media marketing

Creating meaningful connections with target audiences is a huge problem for companies today. Publications and magazines as well as commercials on television simply do not connect consumers with the people behind the brand. Sure, the product may be promoted but how do you offer your audience the complete, behind-the-scenes view of your company? With more than one billions views a day, many corporations are turning to Snapchat and creating original daily stories that increases personal engagement with individual buyers. By making a string of videos and photos called “Snapchat stories”, the content, which only lasts for 24 hours, offers a new platform for corporations to effectively target large audiences while still maintaining that personal feel. With various features such as text, audio media, geo-filters, Snapchat provides a new easy-to-manage and fun way to connect with consumers.

Snapchat social media marketing

            Snapchat, a social media app launched just five years ago, has created so many new facets of marketing possibilities for modern day companies. Its highest appeal is its ability to give the company’s follower’s a seemingly behind-the-scenes view of the company which personalizes the product for the consumer. It gives viewers access to a live stream of the company’s activities and events. Audiences become genuinely excited because of the authentic, timely presentation of event. In addition, it provides private content to the more engaged followers. From hosting snapchat giveaways to delivering sneak peaks to new products or content, Snapchat gives its user a feeling that they are connected to the brand and on top of the newest trends. Furthermore, more and more companies are featuring famous stars on their snapchats or having these stars “take over” the company’s snapchat accounts for a period of time. By partnering celebrities with a heavy media following, companies can easily extend their demographics to include new groups of people.

Utilizing spherical cameras, companies are creating interactive 360
videos and immersive experiences akin to virtual reality to market their products and services.

More and more companies are providing their consumers with a complete immersive experience of their products—literally. Filmed with an omnidirectional or multiple cameras, 360 degree videos are recordings that record views in all directions simultaneously, allowing the viewers to have a full perspective point of view. In order to change the point of view, mobile users can simply tilt their phone see new angles while desktop users can use their curser to drag the view of the video. According to Maria Lauret, Editor for Huffington Post, 360 videos are made through “stitching”. Utilizing footage from various cameras, the individual clips are synchronized and “stitched
together” to generate a single panoramic image.
