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…

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….

Reddit is one of the largest social bookmarking sites on the web. Despite its popularity among millions of users worldwide, it still lacks a dedicated client for Android devices.

Reddit ET sports ICS-inspired Holo-style menus, columns, dropdowns, and tabs. Also included in the package are several familiar Reddit features, such as threaded…

Delicious, also known as del.icio.us, is a social bookmarking service focusing on tag-laden bookmarks and scans through every topic that exists in the Internet. Although there is still no word on the official companion app for the Delicious service, there are, however, some third-party Delicious apps that developers have created to bridge the gap. One of such apps is Droidicious, a promising Android application that integrates with the Delicious service, bringing in new features such as remote access and synchronization with your Delicious account.

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.

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…

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…

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…
