Prisma loading bar

Getting the "Prisma is over capacity" error? Slow performance? Prisma isn't your average photo-filtering app — and that means it can take a little time to do its thing.

If you're one of the many people trying out AI-powered artwork app Prisma in recent days, you'll no doubt have run into the app's main pain point — speed. Or rather, lack of speed. Prisma's intelligent, artistic filters are impressive for sure, but they can take a lot of time to apply — particularly at peak times.

13
Its a faaaaaaake

Looking for the Android version of Prisma? Make sure you don't download a fake.

Did you hear? The unique, artistic photo-filtering app Prisma is now available on Android. But in the early days of the app's availability on the Play Store, you might be having a hard time tracking down a legitimate Prisma download.

That's because, at the time of writing, the app's still relatively new on Google Play, and as such Google's servers are still surfacing an unfortunate number of fake apps in searches for "Prisma."

Mobile Nations Weekly: Modular, mainstream, McLaren

1

Moto's modular masterpiece and Nokia's never known novelty.

Motorola's latest phones — the Moto Z and Moto Z Force have at long last arrived, but with a catch: they're Verizon "Droid"-brand exclusives for now. But give it a little while and the modular-backed smartphones will be available elsewhere. And even though the BlackBerry Security Summit was all about, well, security, we couldn't help but wander about new BlackBerry devices — word on that is coming next week.

Windows Mobile is going through something of a retrenchment period while a new path forward is plotted, but before things went south there was the Nokia McLaren. This highly impressive Windows Phone never saw the light of day until now, and we've got everything you need to know about its giant camera, all-metal body, and insane depth- and pressure-sensing display. Oh, and Microsoft made a bunch of money in the last quarter.

VR took a step into the mainstream with an impressive Mr. Robot tie-in and a new Star Wars game for HTC Vive. Speaking of the Vive, it's cropping up in the most unexpected places, like hospitals.

And, as you might expect, PokéGeddon continues, and we're all in. There's a new podcast — Go Time! — tips on throwing Pokémon Go curveballs, and a parent's guide to the insanity.

JBL isn't in the race to the bottom. It's hoping to stay on the higher end with high quality materials and of course sound, with some great features that can help turn a Bluetooth speaker experience from an "every once and a while" thing to an every-day useful accessory.
