You’ll find 360-degree cameras everywhere today, but the apps that come with them aren’t always great at actually editing the footage they shoot. That’s where VeeR Editor from Velocious Technologies hopes to make a difference, by offering a third-party solution to streamline 360 editing on both iOS and Android devices. The free app could be the perfect compliment for mobile-focused 360 cams like the Samsung Gear 360 or the Rylo.

One of the big advantages VeeR Editor brings to the table is support for multiclip editing with transitions specifically designed for 360 content. This is often a major limiting factor of first-party apps. You can also set the initial perspective, so your viewers always start out looking in the right direction. Beyond those basics, you can add animated text and stickers in the 360-degree space and even apply Instagram-style filters in real time. The app also serves up a selection of music tracks and offers independent volume control over the music and the original audio in the video clip.

In December, VeeR Editor was updated with support for 360 photo editing, as well. In addition to the same tools for editing video, 360 photos benefit from decent manual exposure and color controls, with contrast and white balance adjustments and even a split toning tool. 360 photo hasn’t caught on quite as much as its video counterpart, but if that’s the sort of thing you’re into, VeeR Editor might be worth a look.

One current limitation of the app is that, for the most part, it can only handle 2K resolution, while many consumer 360 cams shoot in 4K today. For now, 4K is supported on some Samsung models, but Velocious says it is working on rolling out 4K support for other cameras. 360 video shows considerable benefits from higher resolution as all of those pixels need to be spread over a spherical area, so hopefully this update arrives soon.

Other than that, VeeR Editor seems to be generally well liked in both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. If you’ve been jonesing to put a smily face sticker on your dog, check it out.

DJI Mini Pro 4 leak appears to reveal the drone’s specs

DJI appears close to unveiling the Mini 4 Pro, the successor to the Mini 3 Pro that launched in May last year.

First, as a reminder, DJI’s smallest and lightest “Pro” drone tips the scales at just 249 grams, a carefully considered move as it’s just 1 gram below the drone weight category that involves having to register it with the authorities. Sure, that’s no great hardship for most folks, but the fewer hoops you have to jump through to get your bird in the sky, the better.

GoPro: Introducing HERO12 Black | Everything You Need to Know

GoPro is back with the latest iteration of its popular action camera. The new GoPro Hero 12 Black is the kind of solid piece of kit we’ve come to expect from a company that’s been in the game for years. That’s actually created a bit of a problem for GoPro, with many customers happy to hang onto their current model rather than upgrade. So it'll be hoping the latest version will be attractive enough to prompt a wave of purchases among current owners, while at the same time attracting a bunch of first-time buyers, too.

How to hide photos on your Android phone or tablet
Google Photos

While modern smartphones are quite secure as long as they remain locked with a passcode or biometrics like a fingerprint, by default those features only protect the front door. If someone picks up your phone while it's unlocked, there aren't typically any barriers that will keep them out of exploring everything from your contacts and emails to your photos.

This can be particularly challenging when it comes to photos, since those are the things we like to show off the most from our phones. We've likely all had those moments when we want to show a friend or co-worker a funny cat meme, so we hand over our phone and trust that they won't swipe right and see the photo of the hairy mole that we sent to our doctor that morning.
