Though a picture can speak a thousand words, there’s nothing quite like taking a video. Capturing a picture is one thing, but a video can tell viewers a whole lot more, not to mention really immerse them in the memory. Social media has expanded way beyond just telling people what you’re doing or thinking of in 140 characters or less and taking pictures of where you are and what you’re eating and throwing a filter on it for a chic look. YouTube allowed people to create video blogs (vlogs) so that they could connect better, and services like Keek let users take a 36-second video of whatever they wanted to share.

The Internet is bustling with information. Everything you could ever need is right at your fingertips, as well as the power to share our own findings. A number of websites already exist for sharing and discovering content.
Facebook is one way to discover new things, but you’d need to sift through your friends’ status updates. There’s also Tumblr but that can quickly get overwhelming as people you follow share anything and everything. Then there’s Twitter, which allows you to make 140-character updates about what you’re doing, thinking, or watching. Those aren’t the only social media and network sites out there. Being able to keep up [...]
Numerous Twitter client apps for Android are springing up like wildflowers, each one bringing added features to improve the user experience, such as features allowing you to tweet more than the allotted 140 characters or integrating photo-sharing services with your tweets. More and more features are added to third-party Twitter apps, all in an effort to stand out from among rival apps.
Developed by HappyDr0id, TweetLine is also among these third-party apps with added or extra capabilities. Although TweetLine is still in its testing version, the app already has the essential components and extra capabilities for Twitter fans.

Staying updated on what’s going on in the world through our friends, no matter where in the world they are, is one of the benefits of social networking sites. Unfortunately, what you’ll be finding out from your friends can be a little limited. If you want to broaden your horizon, you’ll need a different approach and a different app.
Pictulize: What’s Going On?, developed by the developer with the same name, gives you the pulse of the earth in real time. It calls itself a “spaciotemporal” network, allowing users to check what’s happening at a specific place in the world.

YouTube is, in fact, one of the largest video sharing services on the Internet and together with Google, literally controls a large number of loyal users subscribing to the service. Since the launch of YouTube, numerous other websites have followed its lead, stemming from the idea of video sharing. One of these websites is Klip, a simple social video sharing service that combines Facebook and YouTube, all in one place.
First time users of Klip will notice how the app is beautifully laid out in a thumbnail-laden interface that pretty much resembles Pinterest. Klip is not an Android-exclusive application but it also has an iOS counterpart.

You might be wondering, what in the world is a “keek”? Is it some sort of strange bird call? Think of tweets and their 140-character limit. Now imagine that short, concise message in a video. That’s what a keek is.
Instead of letting people infer what they want to from your 140-character tweet, a keek allows you to give the world a 36-second update. There’s a lot you can say and show in 36 seconds and you can give your viewers a better idea of what you’re updating about.
Show the world you’re at a concert, for example, and give them an idea of the noise around you. You can also share what being in a brain-numbing hours-long [...]
Users of the popular photo editor and file sharing wonder, Instagram, will soon hit another milestone in user satisfaction, thanks to an application known as BlinxBox that compliments Instagram well. In just a matter of hours after its release on the Google Play Store, Instagram reached the five million download mark, making it one of the most popular social and photography applications.
Apple users may be saddened that Instagram was ported to the Android platform but that sense of exclusiveness is no match for the die-hard Android fans eagerly waiting for the application. Since its release, Android users have yearned to have an Instagram widget. Their prayers have [...]
Nothing is more refreshing than having the chance to take a peek at different local places or even distant parts of the world without actually having to deal with the hassles of traveling.
Say for example, you want to see the recently opened Sky Tree Tower in Japan, but you don’t have the luxury of time to go out of the country and leave your job. Perhaps you’d settle on just letting it pass, while hoping that someday, the chance would come knocking on your door. But, more often than not, you feel inclined to find ways to see the view without compromising your entire business.
You may not be able to fly out to the destination of your dreams just yet [...]
If you’re looking for something to keep your hands busy during those dull moments in the day, browsing pages upon pages of games in the Google Play Store can be very overwhelming. Which ones could best suit you and keep you entertained for hours? Playing the games yourself could answer your question but playing every one of them is an impossible task.

You may have observed that in Facebook there [...]
