Polaroid Swing: Not Just Another App

Grryo | Posted 08.03.2016 | Technology

I was a bit skeptical about trying out Polaroid Swing; I'm already an avid Instagram/ Snapchat user and I wasn't looking for another distraction or creative outlet to take up my time. However, after a week of trying out the app, I've been won over.

Is the word "genius" overused or do we all possess a little genius within? The answer is both. We do use genius too often to describe attributes that do not meet the standard, while at the same time we all have a bit of it in ourselves.
