Pictulize: Exploring your world and feeling its pulse

by: Dan EvansSeptember 3, 2012

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.

You’ll need to create a Pictulize [...]

by: nathanAugust 23, 2012
When Google Plus first came out, it was a ghost town. These days, it's more of a quiet conversation. Think of it as an adult version of Facebook without the clutter. The advent of 'sliders' to help keep news streams organised is maintaining that image.

Klip: Android app for social video sharing

by: Paul NuñalAugust 3, 2012

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.

Keek: Android app for 36-second video status updates

by: Dan EvansJuly 26, 2012

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 [...]

BlinxBox for Instagram: Social photo feeds on your homescreen, even without Instagram

by: Paul NuñalJuly 12, 2012

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 [...]

Instamap: Viewing geotagged Instagram photos on Google Maps

by: Carl ParkerJuly 4, 2012

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 [...]

aCheckin: A social network for games and gamers

by: Ken EastJune 29, 2012

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.

The best way to find the game for you is to be part of a gaming community where everyone shares what games they are playing. aCheckin is an app that lets you do just that, keeping you abreast of all the latest and hottest games so you’ll never be left behind.

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

SoShare: So you have photos and videos, so share them on your social network

by: Carl ParkerJune 21, 2012

We can find a lot of awesome and useful features on Android phones.  One of the best features available to us is interactivity, especially that of being able to communicate with our friends and family even when we’re away from our computers.

With everyone being addicted to social networking sites such as Facebook, people want to keep the world updated on what they’re doing, where they’re doing it, and whom they’re doing it with. Imagine just how many status updates are made by the second. And, since a picture is said to be worth a thousand words, thousands of pictures are being uploaded and shared on Facebook and other social sites by the [...]

Top 5 best social media apps for your Android smartphone

by: Matthew SabatiniJune 14, 2012

Ever since the explosion of Facebook and Twitter, social apps have become one of the most hotly sought after and downloaded categories for apps. From helping you to find new places in town to just chatting, this group of apps has it all for you and your friends. Despite the recent purchases of startup app companies (Instagram, Beluga, Meebo) by Google, Facebook and more, there are still plenty of notable social apps left in the market.

For the sake of introducing new apps, we have decided to exclude the most popular social apps (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, and Spotify).
