Among the interesting new features of the player is the Fanzone – a space for independent artists to interact with the audience, sell products directly, and share songs for streaming. Users can also create mixed playlists where local tracks are combined with music from subscribed artists.
After Elon Musk acquired Twitter, many users felt that the social network had taken a wrong turn. Some migrated to the free decentralized service Mastodon, while others decided to try an alternative from Mark Zuckerberg – Threads.
The distinctive feature of this app is the absence of the 240-character limit, allowing for longer posts. Threads offers a familiar interface, the ability to read news, and to follow people who interest you.
This app allows you to convert photos into 3D models. You scan an object from all angles using your phone’s camera, and the program generates a finished 3D object.
The app will be useful for architects, artists, designers, photographers, and anyone who needs to work with 3D graphics without spending weeks or months learning complex professional software like ZBrush or Blender. Create intricate objects and scenes, export models, and share them with friends and colleagues.
The intriguing app ImageChat employs language model and computer vision technologies to recognize the content of photos. You take a picture or upload an image from your gallery, and then the AI informs you about what’s depicted in it.
The app is trained on 400 million images and can recognize over 40 million details. It can be useful, for instance, for people with visual impairments, or for those who want to figure out what unfamiliar objects have appeared in their smartphone camera’s view.
This program visually shows where your electricity comes from and how much CO2 was emitted to produce it. Electricity Maps provides detailed data about production levels in dozens of countries around the world.
