Add some security to your photos
Do you have photos on your phone or tablet that you don’t want others to see? KeepSafe Vault promises to help keep them safe from prying eyes, in case anyone should borrow, steal or find your device. When you move videos or photos into KeepSafe, they disappear from your device’s Gallery, so the only way to access them is by launching KeepSafe and entering your PIN.
There are several ways of making your KeepSafe content more secure. For example, you can add a password to each KeepSafe album. You can also disguise KeepSafe as an app that scans your system and reports any problems. This means that even if someone is snooping around your device, they won’t immediately suspect KeepSafe contains private photos and videos. Similarly, you can create a decoy version of KeepSafe that you launch by entering a fake PIN.
KeepSafe doesn’t require root access and is free to download from Google Play. Buying a subscription unlocks some extra features.

In a nod to the nation’s self-indulgent tendencies, last Monday Three launched CalendarMe, an app which allows people to create a 2015 calendar featuring none other than themselves.
Since its launch more than 10,000 people completing their own calendars at www.three.co.uk/CalendarMe every single day, averaging at 417 an hour and 7 every minute.
People can star in a variety of crazy scenarios and view all their creations online.
Lianne Norry, Director of Brand and Marketing Comms from Three, added: “The CalendarMe app follows hot on the heels of our hugely popular Sing It Kitty app, which launched earlier this year, proving the power of silly shareable content. CalendarMe is all about people having fun and getting into the Christmas spirit, whilst tapping into the current trend for people buying themselves, as well as their loved ones, gifts for Christmas. Not only did our own sales data show a clear trend for self-gifting, with people buying phones and tablets as a treat in December, but our research clearly showed that this is the case across the high street.”
Samsung’s full metal Galaxy A7 has had a specifications leak before its launch.
Samsung has had moderate success with the A series, so far, and their next device the Galaxy A7 looks set to be another impressive offering. Although Samsung is undoubtedly aiming the A series at a high-end audience, it’s treading new ground with the A7, as it’s going to be their thinnest phone yet. Full specifications below.Samsung Galaxy A7 specifications Display: 5.5-inch full HD Dimensions: 150 x 75 x 6.3mm Processor: Exynos 5433 octa-core Memory: 16GB storage, 2GB RAM Camera: 13-MP rear, 5-MP front Battery: 2600mAh OS: Android 4.4
Its high-end specifications means we can expect the A7 to be near the top of Samsung’s pricing list (in the region of £549). With MWC on the horizon, Samsung will be looking to release the A7 early in 2015 within South Korea, before eventually expanding overseas.

Tesco and Aldi won’t just be going head-to-head in the shopping aisles this christmas.
Tesco aren’t the only supermarket giants who are looking to compete in the tablet market. The budget-friendly Aldi are set to launch the Medion Lifetab S10346 as a direct competitor to Tesco’s fantastic Hudl2 tablet. On paper, the Lifetab ticks a lot of boxes. It includes a 10.1-inch HD screen, a quad-core Intel Atom processor, 32GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM.
Around the back is a 8-megapixel camera, while the front-facing camera is a standard 2-megapixel affair. It packs in the usual GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as nifty IR blaster for channel hopping. There are no exact details on battery life yet, but Aldi has claimed users can expect to get a solid 10 hours of power between charges.
The Medion Lifetab S10346 will be available for £149.99 at most Aldi stores later this week.
