The Flickr app is getting a makeover today as it hits version 3.0. The company is concentrating on improving the experience with easier searching and a better overall interface, but there's a big new feature too – video capture. There's even this snazzy video showing off the new app.
The built-in weather reports in Android are still a bit basic, Google Now notwithstanding. That's probably why the Yahoo! Weather app has more than five million downloads: a combination of solid weather stats, multiple cities, and a variety of widgets have won it plenty of fans. Today the app gets a significant update, adding a handful of new features and synergistically bringing Yahoo's Flickr property front and center.
Curated Flickr photos were available in the app before, but now they're the main attraction, expanding to fill the screen in just about every part of the interface.
It seems like Yahoo is really trying to make waves lately with new-ish CEO Marissa Mayer at the helm. Not a day after announcing its acquisition of Tumblr, the company's other vowel-deficient service is getting a makeover, and that includes a new Android app. Flickr, that photo-sharing site of yesteryear, has been updated in Google Play with a new interface. Don't let the old Google Play screenshots fool you – the app has been totally redesigned to match the new desktop site.
The newest app from Cloud.TV is out in preview form, and it's already looking quite promising. You might know Cloud.TV from the wildly popular HD Widgets app. This time the dev is tackling dock apps with DayFrame. We've seen various photo frame and dock apps, but the way DayFrame integrates Google voice input is something new.
The app can display photo streams from Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter.
ZeroPC is this crazy service that lets you access all the popular cloud services from one place. "All the popular cloud services" is shorthand for Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs, Instagram, Picasa and SugarSync. Yeah, everything.
The website is insane. They've whipped up an in-browser operating system. Imagine a Linux-based OS in your browser. That's exactly what the website looks like.
However, this is an Android blog, so we should probably focus on the freshly-released Android Tablet (only) app.
Flickr is finally available in the form of an App for Android, a mere two years after the photo sharing service made its app debut on iOS.
The app includes a built-in camera interface with focus and flash adjustments, as well as filters and effects for editing photos on the fly.
Flickr's Android app also allows for sharing via your Flickr account, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or email. Users can also browse their photo stream, contact photos, or profile, and utilize a feature called "infinite scrolling," in which all your photos are displayed on one page.
Samsung is reporting that 5 million Galaxy S II handsets have been sold globally, only 85 days after its initial launch and 40 days faster than its predecessor, the Galaxy S. This contradicts what we heard late last week, when Digital Versus reported that apparently 6 million units had been sold in "less than three weeks", however, this recent announcement from Samsung suggests that those figures may have been exaggerated.
Samsung's flagship Android smartphone has already acquired over 56% of the mobile market in Korea and has also topped the market share of 10 European countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
