A day late and a penny short

The Mom laments to us sometimes (which means ALL THE TIME) that some years back she was a techno nerd - always up to date on the latest computer stuffy, coding web pages with html and all the gobbly-gook -  and then....... well....... she got left behind. Now she has a 'smart' phone that makes her feel dumb cause she doesn't know more then the basic functions on it, an ipad she uses as a cup coaster and occasionally plays a game or checks the weather on and when she does finally discover something 'new' on one of these - she finds everyone else already knew about it months or years ago - sigh! Mom is all her craziness rationalizes this is actually her "being smart" - because by time she discovers something - all the bugs and problems have been worked out and the apps work better - yeah - nice try Mom! She also figures there are probably others out there who are  "app challenged" so she thought she would occasionally share things she has just 'found' and other have probably forgotten about :)

So our first offering is Photo Funia - a cool FREE app - it is available in all app formats, Ipad, IPhone, Android etc.  (It is available for your computer too but Mom says personally she WOULD  NOT recommend it - as it also installs "Sweetpacks" a toolbar that is added to your browsers and it is considered as malware - the apps are fine though) Photo Funia lets you add your photos to other photos to create cool pics. Here are an example of some Mom played around with - it even coverts your pics to look like drawings or paintings. Oh coarse it helps she has such handsome subjects to use when playing around with the app :)


  1. That really does look like fun! Now, if I only had time to play with my phone :-)

  2. O` wow this could be fun!
    Now if it could remove wrinkles
    I'd say install that baby now!

    Have a super day.

  5. Apps no good here as she only as a dumb phone as she hasn't the brain for a smart one LOL. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. That looks like a cool app!! We need to tell Mama ro get rid of all the other photo apps on her phone she doesn't use and get this one...maybe she will actually USE it! BO:
    Dory, Jakey, Arty and Bilbo

  7. That App does look like a lot of fun! Love the pictures you created!

  8. Yes I think it is the exceptionally handsome subjects that are the crucial element here.
    Toodle pip!

  9. We have a computer and a landline phone. Not even a mobile phone. We're way back in the past.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  10. Well, I mean really, how could you go wrong with subjects such as yourself??!
    Sounds like a very cool app...if only Ma used her phone for pics..
    Ruby ♥

  12. Those are fun thingys that your mum did with the pictures..
    We don't have a Smart Phone or an iPad... so we don't know ANYTHINGY about APPs.. AT ALL.

  13. Wow, that does look like a lot of "funia" - thanks for sharing, now to get the Momster to take some pics so she can try it out.

  14. That looks really cool! But the Lady never seems to like to take the time to play around with stuff like that! Love Dolly

  15. Your pictures turned out really cool. We don't usually use the phone or iPad for pictures, but there are some really cool apps out there for photo editing!


  16. Our peep is okay with computers, and uses her smart phone allllllll the time... (more than she should!)

  17. Dada is tech crazy...but then again he is in IT so that explains it. Mom...not so much, she doesn't even own an ipad, hasn't touched her ipod in YEARS and had no desire to update or own either. She does however have a smartphone and hasn't heard of the app and thinks it is PAWSOME and says "thanks" for sharing!

  18. Our mom is way behind on the latest technology - WAY BEHIND, but we do love what your mom has done with the app, Reilly!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  19. That looks cool but I hate all the crap that comes with downloading. Fank youz for coming to my pawty and making my birthday so special. Wez away'z the weekend'z

    Load'z of Hug'z

  20. I'm not smart on my phone either...but this looks like fun!

  21. I like it, but sadly the pad is smarter than my mom. The only thing she did was to remove the protective foil... I can't believe that :o)

  22. Oh goodie! I told my peep all about it and she just downloaded the app. We use Talking Pet all the time and everyone loves it. Thanks for sharing!

  23. Looks like lots of fun! We will have to try it.

    Ruby (and Angel Pip)

  24. Sounds fun! We will let our mom know all about dis app!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae and Max

  25. Mum says that all that smart stuff just makes her feel like a dumb dumb. I don't think she tries very hard because she is scared she will explodes her computers if she installs bad things!!

    But I like the look of that app - very clever!
