“Neutrogena unveiled a new device called SkinScanner, which attaches to your iPhone and uses 12 LED lights, sensors, and a 30x magnification lens to analyze the health of your skin. The device, created in partnership with a startup called FitSkin, works in conjunction with a new app called Skin360.
Together, the Skin360 app and SkinScanner device can “give users an in-depth understanding of their skin’s condition and needs, customized advice to address those needs, plus a clear way to track and assess skin’s progress over time,”
App of the Week: Waze Navigation & Live Traffic By
Waze Inc
For iPhone and Android.
Waze is a navigation/GPS and traffic app. It uses crowd sourcing to distribute real time traffic data. This means that drivers report wrecks, construction and other traffic issues. The app will map your drive based on the fasted route at that exact moment. While driving, the app will continue to check for shorter and faster routes. This app can save you a lot of time and frustration. You can also input information about traffic issues you witness into the app to help the Waze user community.
Tech Tip
Clear your phone cache!
Most experts recommend that you keep 10-15 percent of your phone’s storage available at all times. Even if you have plenty of storage on your phone, you can improve the performance by removing junk and unused apps. To free up space, delete apps you do not use. You should also delete any videos and photos you do not want to save and move others to cloud storage.

After removing apps, photos and videos, if you need additional space, you can also clear the cache data from your phone.
On an Android phone:
to the storage section of your phone’s settings menu. From there, tap cached data and click
clear or OK to wipe away the cache for every app. Often this can free several gigabytes of
storage space.
On an iPad or iPhone, open the settings app. Scroll down to the fifth set of topics. Find “Safari”
and tap it. Scroll down and tap “Clear History and Website Data” and then click “Clear History
and Data”.
