Woxom Slingshot Review: Is It Enough For Video Amateurs?

When I initially got my hands on a Woxom Slingshot, I couldn't have been more excited: finally, I could put the video camera on my phone to good use, since I wouldn't have to put up with wobbly images any more. Having just upgraded to a new camera, however, I found myself a bit perplexed: I mean, if I have better hardware on me right now, what use is this thing?

Therein lies the answer: because it's portable, useful and universal, it can provide a number of functions that would otherwise be fulfilled by other devices. It won't do those functions as well as those devices, but when the inspiration strikes and you need to film something right now, it's invaluable.

Dropbox Version 2.2 Adds More Photo Features And An Updated UI

If you hadn't noticed, Dropbox and Google Drive have been having a friendly rivalry ever since the latter popped up on Android. The latest update to the Dropbox app (2.2) makes good on the additional photo features they've been adding over the last year by revamping the user interface, especially for the photos and videos automatically updated to your cloud storage drive. The UI is now more of a gallery than a bare-bones file browser, thanks to the new Photos tab. See for yourself:

Swiping through photos and videos is now basically identical to the default Android Gallery app, though all photos (and screenshots) taken are grouped by time.

New Photos Of LG's Nexus Leak Out, Look More Press-y, Just As Bedazzle-y

If you had  your doubts before, they should be all but settled. The rumored LG Nexus phone that we saw the other day has changed hands and re-appeared in high-quality photos on Onliner. Of course, these aren't actually designed for release to the media, as the device still has "Not for sale" emblazoned over the back, indicating that this is a prototype and not a consumer-ready model. However, there is no shortage of brightly lit angles and, for some reason, the phone held up next to a stuffed parrot. All Nexuses should be introduced this way.

Evidence Mounts For LG Nexus – Caseless Photos, NenaMark Results Surface

Earlier this evening, we ran a story containing photos of a purported LG Nexus device obtained (and subsequently photographed) by an XDA user. The photos, along with subtle hints like the presence of a Qualcomm modem and kernel, and the presence of a corroborating FCC filing, had us leaning toward the "legit" side of the rumor spectrum.

Now, it looks like a user of a Belarusian forum called Baraholka (which roughly translates to "flea market") has more photos of the device, posted last week – this time lacking what appeared in previous photos to be a shell or casing that disguised the device's real curves (similar to the case we saw on early Galaxy SIII units).

[New App] DayFrame From Developer Of HD Widgets Cloud.TV Is A Cool Voice-Enabled Slideshow Dock App

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.

Images Of An Unnamed HTC Device Surface - Could Be The Rumored 5" Mega-Smartphone Headed To Verizon

No, it's not an Evo. Don't let your eyes deceive you. What you're looking at are leaked pictures of an in-development HTC device. We don't know much about this one just yet. The phone lacks any carrier-specific branding, though the red accents are pretty typical of Verizon color schemes, such as the Droid Incredible.

The site that posted these photos originally, PhoneHK, makes mention of this being a 5" device. Combined with the Verizon-ish color scheme, one might be tempted to believe that this is an early look at the Note-like device we've heard about previously. That HTC phone was rumored to have a full 1080p display, with a quad-core Krait-based S4.

Facebook Gets Updated To Version 1.9.8 With Event Creation, Revamped Photo Upload Flow, And More

Facebook's official app for Android got a nice update today, bringing with it just a few changes, though the enhancements it does bring do make the app just a tad more intuitive and functional.

The update includes a new event creation interface that allows users schedule events of all types in a snap, choosing locations, times, and privacy settings all from one screen. Also included is a "new upload flow" for sharing photos. This may sound vague but the idea is that, with the new update, Facebook's "photo" action (when you check in or simply choose to upload a photo from the main screen) will dump you into a list of all the photos on your device, allowing you to tap as many as you like for upload at once.

Flickr Gets A Big Update To 1.5 - UI Tweaks, HTML Support, And Multiple Camera Selection

Flickr is something of a dinosaur in the rocket-paced world of online photo services, but pros and amateurs alike have stuck to it in the millions. Sadly the Android app hasn't always kept pace with the many options provided on Yahoo's web service. The gap between app and web grows a little smaller today as Flickr 1.5 hits the Play Store, keeping its freemium service but adding a visual overhaul and a handful of new features.

First of all, the user interface has a bit of a facelift. It's still not what I'd call gorgeous (check out the brand-new Pinterest app for that) and it's a long way from complying with the standards or even style of the Holo UI, but every little bit helps.

[Updated] Leaked Images Reveal That Android-Powered Nikon Camera You've Totally Always Wanted

Okay, so maybe David's not looking forward to a point-and-shoot running Gingerbread, but someone probably is! Well, Ashton Q. Someone, here are some photos that should whet your appetite. Nikon Rumors is reporting the first alleged leaked images of the Coolpix S800c, an Android-powered camera.

Oddly, the center image above does not match the other two. It's unclear if this means there will be a whole line of Android cameras (unlikely), if a single image of a different camera got mixed in (probably), or if the whole thing is fake (possible). Though, the one fact that lends the most credibility to these images is that the camera appears to be running Gingerbread.

Instagram 3.0 Update Adds Geotag Photo Maps, Longer Descriptions, And Interface Tweaks

Are you the kind of obsessive-compulsive shutterbug that has to know exactly where and when you found the perfect pair of hipster glasses? Then Instagram's update is aimed right at you... for better or worse. The biggest update to version 3 of the Android app is the Photo Maps feature, which places all your photos on a selectable Google Maps overlay, assuming that you tagged their location when you took them. Because you can never add too much contextual information to a picture of a taco truck.

Other additions include some usability tweaks to the Profile page, though the rest of the application pretty much apes the ubiquitous iPhone version.
