Roku’s Android app updated with user-created video streaming

DNP Roku's Android app updated with usercreated video streaming

Just over a month after its iOS debut, video support for “Play on Roku” is now available for the streaming box’s Android app. You’ll need a second gen or newer Roku running at least software version 5.1 to push hand-crafted video from your Google gizmo, and then it only works with “select” Ice Cream Sandwich or later devices. Which ones? The company’s blog lists the Samsung Galaxy S III and S4, HTC One, Nexus 4 and 2012′s Nexus 7 tablet. You have one of those, right?

Chromecasting any app that uses video or audio could be coming to CyanogenMod soon

ht_chromecast_nt_130724_16x9_992

This is why I love Android. The simple fact that developers can take their stake in a product and customize tools to fit their own (and other users’) needs is a beautiful thing, and is perfectly displayed in what Koush from CyanogenMod has been doing for quite a while now (here, here, here, here, etc.).

Today, Koush announced that he has successfully built Chromecast into the CyonagenMod framework, now allowing any app with audio or video to cast directly to your TV. Yep, that’s right. You don’t have to wait for your favorite application to come out with Chromecast support anymore. So if you were holding off getting Chromecast until that glorious day finally came, it is no longer an acceptable excuse— unless of course you don’t want to load up CyanogenMod onto your phone, which is obviously a huge barrier for many of us that don’t want to deal with the rooting process.

Koush is pretty much breaking records right now considering the amount of stuff he’s developed for Chomecast so far, including streaming local videos/pictures to Chromecast, Dropbox support, RSS video support, and now showing Cast support built into the CM framework. Crazy stuff.

Check out the video after the break of Koush demonstrating it all for you, himself. Let’s hope this becomes available very soon!!

Instagram updates to 4.1, adds ICS support, ability to import video

instagram_4_1A little over a month ago, Instagram 4.0 launched with video support, and today’s update to 4.1 enhances video support. Most notably, you can now import videos into Instagram and then upload to the social network. Vine doesn’t have this ability, so this is just another step in Instagram trying to surplant Vine.

In addition, video support for Ice Cream Sandwich devices has been added. Instagram 4.1 can be downloaded through the Play Store link after the break.

Instagram 4.1 update brings video improvements

Instagram for Android was updated to v4.0 back towards the end of June. That was the update that added video support and as of today it looks like Instagram v4.1 has arrived. Similar to the 4.0 update, Instagram 4.1 keeps the focus on video. In this case there is now support for Ice Cream Sandwich as well as for videos in your Gallery.

instagram-41-video-540

Basically, Instagram 4.1 brings the video experience more on level with the image experience. By that we mean you can now choose to work with a previously recorded video (similar to how you can with a previously captured image). Users will be able to choose the video clip from the gallery and the app will even allow you to trim it to size.

Remember, Instagram videos are 15-seconds in length. The video editing process also allows you to choose how to square-crop it. Of course, you can still apply a filter and choose the Cover Frame for imported videos. Shifting away from this side of the update and to the support for Ice Cream Sandwich.

This one is simple and means those running Android 4.0 or later will be able to use the video side of the app. Instagram Video was previously only available for those running Jelly Bean. That said, it looks like Instagram is looking towards the community for updates. According to details coming with this update, video support for Ice Cream Sandwich was the “number-one request” for the Android app.

With that, the latest version of the Instagram app is available by way of the Google Play Store.

Snapchat v2.0 update brings support for video messaging on Android

Snapchat came to the Android platform several months back. At the time the app arrived with support for sharing in text and image format, however video was recently added. The video messaging support was being tested in a private beta, however as of today — that testing period has come to a close and the updated app (with video) is now available in the Google Play Store.

snapchat-logo

The video support comes as part of the v2.0.0 update. Snapchat is available for Android devices running 2.2 Froyo or later, however the video messaging requires a front-facing camera and 2.3 Gingerbread or later. This update means Snapchat users can now share using text, image and/or video. In addition to the added support for video, Snapchat v2.0.0 has also gotten improved notifications, which are said to be more informative and customizable.

Other goodies noted were performance improvements to include camera frame-rates and navigation speed as well as bug fixes. Changes aside, it seems there was some struggle in getting the video support working properly. The Snapchat team noted that it has been “exciting” but that it also had its “fair share of challenges.” Needless to say, the team is aware that some users may still experience difficulties but that they do want to make Snapchat perfect. Basically, if you are having any video related issues, they want to hear about it.

Changes aside, we do realize there may be some not as familiar with Snapchat. That being the case, this app touts itself as being the “fastest way to share a moment with friends.” It is a quick style messaging app that lets you share messages and moments and restrict the viewing time. Those looking for the update or interested in checking out Snapchat for the first time can follow this link to the Google Play Store.

Keep Your Pants On: Snapchat For Android Finally Updated With Video Support

snapchattinyIf you’ve never heard of Snapchat, god! You guys are so behind the times! This app is like MMS and Mission Impossible all in one! Except it’s not Mission Impossible because that’s an old person show and who cares about Tom Cruise anymore? No time for watching movies when we’re busy sending self-destructing pictures to each other. Set a timer on a message and, once it runs out, the recipient can no longer see your photo. That’s how Snapchat has always worked and now the Android version can send videos as well!

snapchat1 snapchat2 snapchat3

If you have to ask why someone might need an app that destroys photos and videos after they’ve been seen, then perhaps you’re not the target market.

Skype update offers better video calling, file sharing

Skype has been a mainstay on many an Android device since it was released on the Market last year, and today’s update brings it more in line with the VOIP service’s desktop client. Those who aren’t regular Skype users might not know this, but in addition to video and audio calls, the service also includes a full-featured instant message function, complete with file transfer. Today the Android version gets the feature, though it’s focused on photos and videos at the moment.

Other improvements include better video support for newer Android phones, including the HTC Amaze 4G, the DROID RAZR. Tegra 2 phones and tablets should see significant power and stability improvements as well. The standard Skype rates and restrictions apply: calls to other Skype members are free, while calls to regular phone numbers cost a small per-minute fee. Skype works on WiFi or 3G, but naturally you’ll be responsible for data charges if you use the latter.

Skype has had an increasing number of competitors in the last few years, especially on Android, where most mid-range and high-end phones now include front-facing cameras for video conferencing, to say nothing of the iPhone. But the company is staying on top of things with consistent releases and admirable support. You can download version 2.6 in the Android Market now. Are you still using Skype, or have you switched to a competitor like Fring or Qik? Let us know in the comments.

hi-124-5

The highly popular news aggregator app News360 has received a major update, at least for phones (the update should be coming for the tablet version soon), and while the great looks of the app didn’t need much improvement, the developers decided it was time to add a few new features.

First, feed personalization. You can now sign into your various social accounts on News360, and the app will scan them and created a personalized feed based on the interests it finds.

SanDisk Will Release 64GB microSDXC

When we read devices’ descriptions, as a rule we can see that tablets and smart-phones support microSD cards with up to 32 GB of storage only. Well, this is great, of course, but with the rapid increase of HD content and music availability, 3D video support and application we might need a bit more than 32 GB of additional storage. That is why SanDisk has plans to release something better and something more available like a new 64GB microSDXC card designed for mobile devices. Well, my first cell phone was able to storage 100 contacts and 16 SMS (on SIM CARD), so, 64GB microSDXC plus the inbuilt storage of 16 GB will give you pretty enough virtual storage to use. Also, a short announcement from SanDisk: Mobile phone sales are expected to reach 1.7 billion in 2014, and the majority of these handsets will include microSDXC card slots, according to Strategy Analytics, Slotted Phone Shipments Forecast, 12/10. Mobile phones allow consumers to create and enjoy an increasing amount of digital content, ranging from user-generated Full HD videos to full-length feature films and videogames. High-capacity mobile memory cards provide the storage expansion consumers need to keep up with the explosion of digital content.

HTC Rhyme gets official on Verizon, puts us to sleep

HTC has unveiled a new Android smartphone today and to be honest, it’s a snoozer. The phone is called the HTC Rhyme and it will be heading to Verizon on September 29. The smartphone has a purple color and appears to be targeting the ladies out there based on the color-matched accessories. The color is actually called metallic plum, but I know sparkly purple when I see it. Prince would be all up on this smartphone.

It has a charm thingy that glows when a call comes in and to give a visual indication of a call if the phone is on mute. Other accessories that come with the smartphone include a sports armband to secure the phone for workouts and a Bluetooth headset that is the same color as the phone. On the hardware, side things are basic.

Hands-on with HTC Rhyme

You get a WVGA display, support for HSDPA networks, WiFi, and Bluetooth capability. The phone also has GPS inside and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Over the top of the Android OS is HTC Sense 3.5 and HTC Watch streaming video support. It has a front and rear camera as well.

Paper Camera updated with ability to morph existing shots

The really quite excellent Paper Camera app, which applies a variety of filters to your Android camera’s output to make everything look hand-drawn or painted to a varying degree of success, has been updated recently. It now has the option to import photos you’ve already taken, adding its ace illustration effects to your existing library of shots.

The app also now works on more Android devices, with compatibility with the original Galaxy S added to this most recent version. And this is the sort of magic it works:

Earlier in the week the Motorola Feedback Network began contacting Motorola DROID 3 owners about an upcoming update for their handsets. Today, Verizon has posted the documents overviewing the update to their support site. The biggest benefit of the update is the inclusion of Google Talk with Video support, but numerous other bug fixes and enhancements come bundled in the 57.6MB file.

The update, which brings the Droid 3′s build number to 5.6.890, should begin reaching members of Motorola Feedback Network soak test this weekend. With history as any indication, all users should be seeing it by the end of next week.

Vizio Tablet Receives Update

The recently released Vizio tablet is now lucky to boast with the OTA update that brings, maybe, minor but useful upgrades for its features. First of all, this is not Honeycomb update and I do not think that we should expect one coming up soon. But, if you happen to have the Vizio tablet, you might have already noticed that it works not as smooth as it should be working. Some applications run a bit too slow and animation is not as good as it should be. So, this update should make everything look and work nice and fast. Better scrolling and faster app loading will go a long way towards making the software more tolerable. Also, developers claim that we will feel better touch-screen response, more devices in the IR remote control database will be supported and QVGA video support should come. If you still do not have update notification, try to reconnect your tablet to your Wi-Fi spot and the notification message should pop out.

Vizio tablet gets its first OTA update

Vizio tablet OTA

The Vizio tablet has an OTA upgrade rolling out, and while it’s not a version upgrade to Honeycomb it does look to address a few nags we have with the software — namely the application launch speed and scrolling between screens.  If you have a look at our review, you’ll see that the VIA software on the tablet seems slower than we liked, and full of shiny animations that look good but don’t really add to the experience that much.  Better scrolling and faster app loading will go a long way towards making the software more tolerable.  Toss in better touchscreen response and even more devices in the IR remote control database (both of which we already found working quite well), and QVGA video support and we won’t complain.  If you haven’t already got your notice to upgrade, you should see it soon as long as you’re connected to Wifi.
