After Eight Months Of Silence, IntoNow Gets Bumped Up To Version 2.0

Print

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything from the video-identifying application IntoNow, but out of nowhere the Yahoo!-owned application was bumped up to v2.0 late yesterday evening. The update brings several new features, which mostly focus on the social aspect of the app:

What’s in this version:

- Capture and caption your favorite “Did you see that” moments with Capit – instantly create pictures from your TV, add a caption and/or comment, and share with your friends.
- Newsfeed update – Now you can see when friends are in a discussion or have completed a trivia.
- Get live sport updates with scores, stats, and player information for football, basketball, and baseball
- Join the community with trivia, discussions, polls, and other fun experiences for some of your favorite TV shows

If you’re not familiar with IntoNow, it’s basically like SoundHound for TV.

3LM resurfaces, still wants to make Android secure enough for the IT guys

Remember when Motorola bought 3LM, a startup dedicated to offering enterprise-class device management to Android users? After eight months of silence, there’s finally some news about the company and its handset-agnostic solutions. It’s called, erm, 3LM and you (yes, you) can begin the scintillating process of installing it on your servers and company-issued smartphones later this week. Administrators will get the power to encrypt data and removable storage on Android devices like the Motorola ET1, remotely install / uninstall / blacklist applications, connect to the devices over VPN and behave like the killjoys we all know and love admins to be. There’s no word on how much this shebang will cost, but you’ll find most of the other important facts in the press release, tucked after the break.

Droid Bionic gets friendly with its future roomate for Mr. Blurrycam

We know, we know — you’re ready to be done with the Droid Bionic. After all, we’ve been lusting after this monstrosity guy for nearly eight months now, so is all of this building up to be a major disappointment? We’re just as eager to find out as the next person, but here are some new images of the real deal to (hopefully) tie you over a bit longer. We’ve seen shots of the Motorola XT875 up close and personal before, but this is the first time it’s been spotted snuggled up next to another phone. Hanging out next to the Samsung Droid Charge, the Bionic’s slightly larger appearance lends credence to reports that it has a 4.5-inch display. A few other cosmetic features that stick out — quite literally, we might add — are the tapered back that bulges halfway up the phone to accommodate the camera, and the beveled edge around the perimeter. As already expected, the microUSB / HDMI port on the bottom right side for Webtop access can easily be discerned. Will this be enough to whet your whistle for another few weeks? If not, we hear there’s another Verizon device inbound that you might be interested in.

Motorola XPRT available now on Sprint for $129.99 on contract

It took eight months, but Sprint has launched the Motorola XPRT, a rebadge of the Droid Pro that Verizon’s been shilling since November. Since the Now Network is late to the game, it lowered the price to $129.99 on contract — $50 less than what Big Red customers had to pay when the phone was brand new. (Then again, Verizon has since slashed the price to $149.99, or $99.99 if you buy online.) To recap, the XPRT is a portrait QWERTY handset with a 1GHz processor, 3.1-inch HVGA touchscreen, and a 5 megapixel camera running Android 2.2 with Motoblur layered on top. And, like Verizon’s version, it has a dual-mode CDMA / GSM chip making it ripe for worldwide roaming. We know, you’ve seen this phone before, but for what it’s worth, if you’ve been holding out for an Android device with a portrait QWERTY keyboard on Sprint’s network, the XPRT is one of just two options (the other being the lower-end Samsung Replenish).

HBO Go, Max Go streaming comes to DirecTV; iOS and Android apps still due later this year

Starting today, DirecTV subscribers with HBO and Cinemax (or possibly without, in our experience) have access to the HBO Go and Max Go online portals that stream original content like the upcoming Game of Thrones and various movies. While DirecTV mentioned it would roll out TV Everywhere style offerings of its own, this is the first we’ve seen that actually offers viewers their content away from the dish. Also notable in the announcement was a mention of Android and iOS clients for the Go portals, since the last we’d heard of them was word of an iPad app expected in six months… eight months ago. No word on what’s causing the delay (there’s already an app for Samsung’s latest TVs that support Flash) but they’re expected later this year — we won’t even bother asking about the new DirecTiVo.

Android PlayStation emulator PSX4Droid pulled from Market, timing pointing at Xperia Play (updated)

Uh oh, the day has finally come. We just gathered from Joystiq (and confirmed ourselves) that the renowned Android first-gen PlayStation emulator, PSX4Droid, has been pulled from the Market. The reason? Its author, ZodTTD, said Google informed him that it was a matter of “Content Policy violation,” however the fact it’s taken eight months for Google to take action suggests it might have a little something to do with the imminent launch of the Xperia Play, which will have its own mechanism to power the original PlayStation’s games. Another mystery is that it looks like other emulators such as SNesoid (SNES), GameBoid (Game Boy) and, in particular, FPSe (PlayStation) appear to be safe for now, which might suggest that there are other reasons behind this removal; but still, the timing suggests otherwise. On the bright side, we can always rely on third-party app markets.

Update: Here’s a super generic statement we just received from Google regarding this matter:

“We remove apps from Android Market that violate our policies.”
