Graphics-heavy F1 2016 now available on Android and iOS

Published

on

If you’re a fan of both racing games and great-looking graphics, you’re gonna love this.

Racing game F1 2016 can now be downloaded for both Android and Apple devices, and thanks to its official licensing, it contains 21 actual circuits from this year’s Formula One season.

You can also race against 22 of the drivers, including the likes of Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, and several other big names.

And the realism doesn’t end there; as long as you have a smart device that can handle the heavy requirements, this game has some sweet visuals, from the car details to the shadows on the race tracks.

F1 2016 is quite flexible. You can choose what order to play your championship series in Season Mode; customize your steering controls; and compete in new challenges every week.

The only downside here is the file size. Consuming 2.67GB, F1 2016 might take a long time to download and will hurt phones containing 32GB of internal storage or less.

You also have to contend with the $9.99 price tag, but that’s for an app without ads or annoying in-app purchases. You’re actually getting a full game for the price!

Facebook Lite comes to iPhones at less than 5MB

It consumes less power, too!

Published

on

After being enjoyed by Android users for years, the slimmed down version of Facebook’s main app finally arrived on iOS. Although, it’s only available to a select few — for now.

The Facebook Lite app was originally designed for developing countries where mobile data can be unreliable and Android phones are pretty basic. But, it also gained popularity among users with better phones because it uses way less data than the main Facebook app.

On iOS, the lite version is available for download through the Apple App Store for less than 5MB. Apart from being an easy download, it also uses less battery power and occupies minimal storage space.

This is going to be ideal for iPhones and even iPod Touch devices that are already showing signs of slowing down. The app is compatible with devices running iOS 9.0 and later.

For now, the app is only available in Turkey. As the testing phase expands to other regions, Facebook Lite will eventually be open for everyone.

Instagram launches Nametag feature

What it does and how to use it

Published

on

Unveiled today, Instagram’s Nametag feature allows you to easily find other people in the app by scanning a unique nametag generated just for you.

Just how does it work? First, you have to make your nametag. You can do this by tapping the button with three lines on the upper-right side of your profile, hit “Nametag,” and you’re all set to create your own. You can even personalize it by changing colors, design, adding emoji, stickers, or even your selfies.

To add someone via the nametag, just swipe to the IG camera, point at a nametag, and press and hold. Alternatively, you can also get to the camera by tapping “Scan a Nametag” when you’re on your Nametag page.

Once scanned, Instagram will give you the option to follow or view the user.

If you want something to practice on, try these on for size:

If it sounds familiar, it’s because it’s nothing new. We’ve seen it before in other apps like Snapchat and WeChat. Of course, we’ve also seen IG take already-existing concepts *ehem*IG Stories*ehem* and do it (arguably) better.
