Split Screen: Display Two Sites in One Tab

Split Screen is a Google Chrome extension which prompts the user for two URL addresses and then displays both in one window. When you use this extension you don’t have to switch tabs back and forth and back and forth and back when you are comparing something or referring something. This extension can be used very easily with no problems plus it is from a verified author so no problem at all. It is great for cross-reference studying and surfing the web in general.

Another great thing is that it has a customizable page using which we can change the settings easily and comfortably, check out the screenshot.

Also, there is a space where you can write anything and it would be saved for the next time you visit that page. This is another awesome thing. You can save your blog links in it for promotion so that you just have to copy it from there. It is not possible for a thing to be all good and have nothing bad. Even this extension has a negative point. The secure Https pages will not work because they have a framekiller and jump out of the frame command.

With all the things told, let me tell you how can you view two webpages in a single tab.

1. Install the extension from here.
2. Click on the icon on the top right.
3. Now, you will have 2 sections and 2 URL boxes.
4. Enter the URLs you want to see.
5. Press the “Enter” button.
6. Voila! All done, check out the example.

It’s as simple as that. This extension is very useful for comparing purposes. You can also turn on autofill to make typing URLs faster. This extension worked very well for me and I definitely suggest you to try it. You will definitely like it.

Photoshop Express for iOS Device Improved: Multi-Tasking

Adobe has recently updated their ever useful Photoshop Express app for iOS devices adding iOS 4 multi-tasking support alongwith a full fledge Retina Display support. Alongwith these marked improvements, Adobe is also focusing its attention on a latest Camera pack that will be an in-app purchase thing.

Adobe Photoshop Express v2.0 Camera Pack Features

This latest Camera pack priced at $3.99 add multitude of new features including Auto review, Reduce noise and Self timer. The Self timer feature works exactly as the name suggests, users can set it to either a 3 second or a 10 second delay.

Auto Review is the other useful feature that offer users to bypass “Rapid fire capturing” feature that was introduced in version 1.5 of this app. Rapid fire feature in the previous versions was incorporated so that the photos that users capture get saved immediately to Camera Roll app on their iDevice. Auto Review feature enable users to sift through the photos before they get saved on Camera roll.Adobe-Photoshop-Express-user-interface

But I think the feature that surely justifies this Photoshop Express camera pack price of $3.99 is Reduce Noise. This feature works to remove a substantial amount of speckles and graininess on all the lower quality camera photos. Although iPhone 4 camera is pretty good but Reduce noise feature is ideal for photos that you have taken in certain conditions that have increased their graininess.

On the whole, Photoshop Express v2.0 is a pretty decent photo editing app to carry out some basic level manipulations on your photos but fairly speaking the camera pack price with the inclusion of the above mentioned features is not justified. I think users will hesitate in jumping to get Camera Pack and will stick on using the basic Photoshop app.

You can download Adobe Photoshop Express for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for free from the Apple App store. The additional Camera Pack with Self Timer, Reduce noise and Auto Review feature is available as an in-app purchase for $3.99.
