VLC exits beta, outs stable version

Posted by wicked December - 9 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

We have much love for the VLC media player – it’s an app for people working on desktops and laptops who want a media player that works with just about any media format you throw at it. It just works, and we were pretty excited when VLC wanted to bring its goods over to Android some two years ago. All that time, the VLC app for Android stayed in beta – until today, when we finally have VLC 1.0 in our hands.

There are still stuff to tweak with the rollout – the URL for the Google Play Store listing betrays the fact that it has been in beta for a while, and they have not changed it yet. Ditto with the Play Store description. But other than that, we have VLC 1.0 in all its glory – with a host of bug fixes and performance updates, of course.

Primarily, VLC 1.0 fixes the issue with ARMv8 processors and the instances when it crashes when used in Android 5. The interface is also available in dark or white colors, and it comes with DVD iso and menu support, an equalizer, and better playlist management. The new version also has an updated SD card detection feature. Lastly, hardware acceleration for video and graphics is now enabled by default, hopefully the code is now more stable to handle it.


VLC for Android media player is free to download – check the link below – and will (mostly) work with any device sporting Android 2.1 or higher. Of course, the better the specs, the better chances you have of running the app smoothly.

Video: Android Auto in full detail

Posted by wicked November - 24 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

By now, you’re familiar with Android Auto. The blossoming in-car platform is Google’s attempt at diversifying their platform everywhere you are, and driving is no different. As we increasingly use our phones for things like navigation, they become more like an in-car device. Motorola has even created profiles for when you’re driving with one of their devices, effectively making a tiny in-car system of their own. At the recent LA Auto Show, Chris Davies from our sister site SlashGear got to spend some time with Android Auto. Check it out!

The point of Android Auto is to stop us from actually handling our phone during those times we should be, you know, paying attention to the road ahead (and/or behind). By taking the experience into your car’s dash, your phone is still providing the info necessary, but you don’t have to fumble with your handheld device.


Android Auto also doesn’t take over your car’s experience as you might find it — it’s totally complimentary to it. If your car’s OEM has built in some features of their own, Android Auto is simply an add-on to that, relying on tech you might use on your phone.

The video below is a touch long at 15 minutes or so, but provides the first in-depth look at Android Auto we’ve really seen. If you’re excited to see what Android Auto will be like in your next new car, check out the video below.

Samsung announces Milk Video app for Galaxy users

Posted by wicked November - 20 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Just a few weeks ago, YouTube relaunched its app and also a video music service to make it easier for users to browse and view their favorite artists and music. Now Samsung has introduced to the US market a new service called Milk Video, and this one is dedicated to helping you discover and enjoy new video content on the web, not just limited to music videos but encompassing short films, comedy sketches, branded content, etc.

Milk Video will be curating all the best videos that available right now, depending on the tastes and interests that you specify. It has already been streamlined and designed for the mobile experience,especially since recent studies show that over 80 million Americans every month view videos not on desktops but on their mobile devices. Milk Video makes it easy for users to look for videos that they want but also to discover things they don’t know about. In fact, they claim that “searching is a thing of the past” because the app analyzes what you want to watch, who you follow, basically your whole behavior while using the app. Then they deliver the content that they believe you would want to see.

Just like any other social network, you’ll be able to follow friends, brands and other users within the app. Sharing to other social networks is also pretty easy,especially as not everyone you know will be on the app (Samsung hopes just for now). As part of their initial offering, they’ve teamed up with famous video content providers like VICE, Red Bull, Funny or Die, College Humor, Vevo, etc to provide special video content for new users.

For now, the app is only available for those in the US. It’s also only compatible with Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy Mega, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy S III mini and Galaxy S5. This severely limits the app’s userbase but hopefully they’ll consider opening it up not just for Samsung but other smartphones as well. You can download Milk Video from the Google Play Store for free

Motorola video invites people to join company

Posted by wicked October - 20 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off


Although Motorola continues to languish behind bigger companies like Samsung and Apple in terms of market share for smartphones and tablets, that has not stopped them from producing some noteworthy devices. The latest such device is the new Nexus 6 smartphone from Google and Motorola has a new Droid device, the DROID TURBO, ready to be released by Verizon. The company also made a big point about last year’s Moto X being produced in the U.S., although the company is now bracing for ownership by China-based Lenovo. With so much change and activity, Motorola wants to make sure job seekers do not forget them and have release a video to highlight the company and what it is like working there.

In the video, Motorola tries to show that the company, despite an 85-year history, is looking forward to the future and is not the same type of company of even one generation ago. If you think a career with Motorola may be for you, visit the Careers portion of the Motorola web site by heading over to Before you do though, you may want to check out the new video they produced.

Well, Android 5.0 is here, and it has been named Lollipop! Throwing almost everyone off! Not a surprise, as Google did the same thing last year with KitKat. To help explain it all, Google has released a video showing the intense screening process they went through to find the right dessert, and Lollipop was just too sweet!

Movie Edit Touch is your own mobile video editing suite

Posted by wicked October - 15 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

There used to be a time that for you to be able to edit the videos you take on your mobile devices, you need to transfer them to your desktop, download a video editing suite, edit and render on your desktop (which sometimes takes hours) and then transfer back to your phone or tablet. Whew! We just got tired thinking of all that. But now, mobile video editing apps have been appearing in the market. One new player is called Movie Edit Touch, which is pretty self-explanatory already.

Yes, the app is for editing movies by touching your mobile device. You can choose to use videos that you’ve already take on your phone or tablet or get clips from the SD card or even from other devices like the uber-popular GoPro Action Cam. You can also use both images and video clips for your mobile masterpiece. You can add background music, trim and rearrange the video clips and images, use transition effects in between the clips. However if you’re not satisfied yet with the final project, you can go old school and import and edit it on your desktop by using the MAGIX Movie Edit Pro.

But you really don’t need to use the desktop, since you already have a lot of options and features on the app, particularly if you upgrade to the Premium version. By just paying a minimal amount, you have more transition options and you can add cinematic effects like lomo, vintage, Pop Art and others (think filters, but for videos). You can also add text to the video and make title cards, in case your visuals aren’t enough to tell the story. The export quality for the premium is also better with HD quality 720p or 1080p.

If you want the Premium version, you just make a one-time in-app purchase of $1.99. But if you think you’re okay with the basic features, you can just get the free version of Movie Edit Touch from the Google Play Store.
