As I said in my last post, the new app I’ve been working on is out on the market and called: QuickVideo.
The motivation for writing this app came after many video capturing moments passed by me and left undocumented due to the time it took me to reach to my camera. After so many missed moments I have decided to write a little app that will help me get in “recording mode” very fast and easy. The idea was an app that will sit on my home screen and be accessible, fast and reliable.
QuickVideo is a small app to install and have a link to on the home screen. A second (or less) from the moment of touching it’s icon, your android will start recording a video of whatever in front of it. To stop the video recoding, simply touch the screen – The most important mission accomplished and the video is now saved and secured on the phone SD card. After stopping the recording an options screen will pop out giving the ability to: play the video, rename it, delete it, share it or just go ahead and exit (until the next QuickVideo).
This is really a small and easy app that helped me fill a little gap in the media sector of my Android. I am always looking for ways to improve my apps, if you got some ideas/requests you are welcome to leave a comment or email me.

So after resting a bit from the android development due to insufficient brain juice, i am back and running on a new app.
As all of my apps, this one also comes out of my necessity of features using my phone. We all have situations in life that we think “ohhh that’s funny” or “I have to video tape that!”. When that happens, most of the time we either take the phone out and ask the people we are with to do the same thing again (which never duplicate the first time) or we just giving up the situation and staying without the video of it.
In my next one I’ll be trying to fix this issue by writing a small app that will get us filming as soon as we (and the phone) can. Getting the shortest way from the point reaching in to our pockets and getting the phone out to the point when we are already taping. As it sounds, it wont be a sophisticated app nor it will have a lot of options and user interface, but I hope it will help us getting more situations in life recorded and shared.
Israel News 1.6 upgrade was sent to the market today.
Upgrade includes a new favorites section. Each news feed now contains a little star on the side, pressing the star will add/remove the feed from the favorites list. Assuming there are feeds one reads and follow often, this is an easy to access them without the need of going through the entire list.
Bug reports / feature requests are welcome. as always.
The app has been removed from the Android market following Facebook Trademark complaint. I am trying to get in touch with Facebook to resolve the issue (no success so far…).
Updates to come…
New app was released today – Israel News. This app is for the Israeli and Hebrew reading audience. Displaying news from all major Israeli news sites in one easy to use and fast screen. Stay up-to-date with the day to day issues on the go.
As with new apps this one also can also be treated as beta version while I’m working on some new features and bug fixes. If you encounter any problem with the app please email me and I’ll try to fix is ASAP.
I am always looking for new ideas and requests from users to make my app’s better, so feel free to send me your feedbacks and requests.
After releasing the paid version to be a free one, on to the next change… The app is now totally free of cost and free of ads! Just like we like it.
After a long time being off the market (due to problems with Google payments), The full functional facebook album sync app is now available for FREE. Download all your photos and tagged pictures to your android device in seconds.
As I promised in the last post, a new application and a more advanced one (than the first two) is out on the market. Facebook album sync will keep your phone photo gallery synchronized with your Facebook pictures. Very simple interface will guide you through the following process:
- Login to your Facebook account.
- Authorize the Facebook application to access your account data (the well known “Allow” button you see each time you add an application on Facebook).
- Use the Check boxes to choose which of your albums you would like to download.
- Touching the “Download Albums” button will start the download process of the selected albums.
After the process is complete you can go ahead to the Gallery in the device and see your new pictures lined up, arranged in albums just like in Facebook.
The application has 2 versions. The Lite version has some ads in it and will allow you to download your albums. The Full version ($0.99) has no ads in it and will unlock the ability to download the album called “My Facebook Tags” (at the bottom of the albums list). Downloading your Tagged pictures will fetch all pictures you are tagged in even if they were not uploaded by you.
