Cassey Ho Tells You How to Get Strong and Lean in 2016Cassey Ho strolls onto the set of her Health cover shoot sporting short-shorts and a cropped T, looking every bit the California girl. “Hello!” she says, flashing a smile. Immediately you want to be her best friend.

Her fans even include such famous fitness fanatics as Lolo Jones and Taylor Swift.But it wasn’t easy getting here.

PicsArt hits 130 million MAUs as Chinese flock to its photo editing app

PicsArt hits 130 million MAUs as Chinese flock to its photo editing appIf you’re like me, who isn’t big on social media, you’d think that the image filters that come inside most apps will do the job. But for many others, especially the younger crowd, making their photos stand out is a huge deal. The demand is big enough that PicsArt, a rival to filtering companies VSCO and Snapseed, recently hit 130 million monthly active users worldwide, roughly a year after it amassed 100 million MAUs. Like VSCO, PicsArt now offers video overlays though images are still its focus. Nearly 80 percent of PicsArt’s users are under the age of 35 and those under 18 are driving most of its growth.
