7 Tips for Improving Your Smartphone Pictures to Get More Followers

If you're looking to increase your Instagram following, here are seven tips to improving your smartphone pictures which should help you on your way. For me, I'm shooting for 10K followers this year (currently at about 6750).

1. Don't rely on the Instagram photo editing options. Use a different app. There are several apps that you can use for editing. I like Photoshop Express.

When you use the app start by adjusting the brightness. If you want your photo to pop, play with the contrast, then use highlights and shadows to improve the lighting. This will give you a beautifully edited photo. Save this version of your image and use it with the Instagram filters or you can use it as is.

Four Pieces of User Data You Should Collect with Your Mobile App

If you have earned yourself an online masters in computer science from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, then you would have likely already created several working mobile applications. You likely wanted to achieve your online computer science masters degree because you knew it would give you the knowledge needed to create your own mobile applications, and that would, in turn, give you the chance to work for yourself as an app developer. Developing apps isn’t easy and much planning is required in order to create a successful app. If you are looking to create a new app for whatever reason, whether it be for a game or to help other students gain their qualifications, then there are ways in which you can take advantage of that and collect important pieces of user’s data which could help you develop apps in the future. Here are four pieces of information you should collect from your app users.

ThreadLab Subscription Box Review

I was compensated for this post. This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.
ThreadLab is the men's clothing subscription box that isn't a subscription box. For the man who doesn't like to shop with a little personal styling help, ThreadLab offers you a subscription model of ordering men's clothing, but you preview everything online before they ship, and you don't actually have to have a recurring subscription to shop with them. I recently had a chance to try out one of their boxes.
For starters, the site walks you through a series of questions. These are both size-related questions and styling ones, too. Questions like what cut of jeans you prefer or what shirt patterns you like (i.e. flannel, check, plaid, solid, or stripe).
Once you enter in your sizes and preferred styles, you can pick which types of clothes you'd like in your first order. You then can confirm your order, without really ordering anything. Instead, what happens is it triggers the creation of a bunch of items for you that match your criteria. You're then emailed and can preview the items that match.
