Google launches new YouTube app for Android

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2010

Google has announced a new version of its YouTube app for Android. Most Android phones come with YouTube preloaded already, but the new version is available as a separate download from the Android Market. Google is trying to make it easier for users to update key apps without waiting for their phone company to upgrade to the latest version of the Android operating system.

The new app currently requires Android 2.2 and up. It also supports in-page playback, allowing you to read comments while a video is playing. You can still watch videos in full screen, by rotating the display. It’s easy to search YouTube, view and subscribe to channels, even shoot videos with your camera and upload them directly to YouTube.

ABC app listens to your TV to synchronize interactive content

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2010

Those fine folks in charge of TV ratings that don’t work very well, Nielsen, have come up with a new way to monitor your home, or at least your Tv viewing habits. Maybe both. It’s an official ABC app that uses the iPad’s microphone to figure out what you’re watching, no matter if it is live or recorded, and offer interactive content based on this.

Nielsen says the app uses the same audio watermarks that are embedded in almost every US television show to do its thing. I guess that means that your household conversations are safe. For now. It has only been announced for the show My Generation so far.

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2010

FaceTime is nothing new really, but Apple is good at making you believe that it is revolutionary. FaceTime is actually very restricted. For one thing, you need to be within the area of a Wi-Fi network and then you can only call another iPhone 4 owner, not someone with another phone.

Then again, that’s the kind of control Apple loves. The FacePlant app shows users which of their contacts can receive video calls, which saves you a lot of time. FacePlant isn’t approved by Apple, but if it ever is, it will be available for free.
