Apps for April 5, 2012


Cymera is a camera app and photo editing app combined into one. With Cymera users snap photos and then apply edits to them such as crop, rotate, add filters, add “beauty”, add “decorations”, adjust brightness, adjust contrast, etc. The camera feature of Cymera allows users to take basic shots using either the front of back camera and flash (if applicable); in addition there are other modes such as double mode fisheye, sprocket, and more. If you opt to create a Cymera account (creating an account is free and not required, if you don’t want it), you can share your photos with friends via Cymera’s online photo sharing website.

Save my Attach

If you use Gmail on your Android, you may have noticed Gmail doesn’t let you download some attachments types. (I’m not sure why Google put in this restriction.) Save my Attach is an app that allows you to circumvent Gmail’s attachment downloading restriction and download any and all attachments you receive. To download a Gmail attachment with Save my Attach, all you have to do is hit the Preview button for the attachment you want to download, select Save my Attach from the menu that pops up, select where you save the attachment (you must type in the folder path — Save my Attach does not have a file browser), pick a name for the, and save. Save my Attach also works with other email apps, using the Open button.
