    We review some smartphone apps that you probably still have but no longer use In a world that moves at the crazy-fast speed imposed by the Internet, the popularity cycle of mobile applications seems to be getting shorter and shorter. The proof of this is that it doesn't take long to recall a good number of apps that were incredibly popular years ago but are hardly talked about anymore. We decided to pay a small tribute to ten of these apps. They are examples of compelling interface designs and clever concepts that conquered hundreds of thousands of people around the world but faded away in our memories. 1.

    Meet 10 of the Best Dog Photographers

    We asked the Instagram Domestika community what their favorite pet photographers are Instagram has always been a great place to find fun and creative photos of dogs. So some days ago, in our Instagram Stories, we asked for help in order to find the best pet photographers. And here it is. The full list of noses, tails, friendship, fun, and love. The Dogist (@thedogist) Armed with a digital high-speed camera and the desire to document the grace, beauty, and character of dogs, photojournalist Elias Weiss Friedman has focused on doing with dogs what The Sartorialist did with people: document the contemporary history of street style. Friedman has photographed more than 2,500 dogs of all breeds, and the most valuable lesson they have taught him is this: "There is nothing like the frankness that you find in a dog's face, they don't pose nor they are afraid of being photographed. A lesson for our whole society, in which vanity and constant social validation are the status quo".
