Netflix Streams on Selected Androids Only

Written on November 15, 2010 by B Waldorf

This news is somewhat on the gray area. Netflix will be start streaming on Android devices but on just selected units. What do you think?

Year 2011 will be a good start for something new. As with Android users, Netflix will stream on you smartphones starting next year. No need to envy your friends friends who use WP7 or iPhone mobiles. Unfortunately, the app is limited to a few Android OS.

Netflix’s product development head, Greg Peters, reinstated in his blog yesterday that “the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android” was the one thing which stops the expansion of the platform to other Android devices.

“We are eager to launch on these devices and are disappointed that we haven’t been able to do so already,” he also wrote.

Since there’s no solution yet, Netflix works now with individual hardware manufacturers to the supported devices. First batch of the decives will be getting the app by 2011. But Peters said the company is already working on a platform-wide solution but no final words about the release date.

Let’s wait and see to where this project goes.

Napster, at long last, is Now on iPhone

Written on September 21, 2010 by B Waldorf

After refusing to make an app last year for Apple devices, Napster had seen the possibility at last.

The once revolutionized service for music sharing, commonly known as Napster is available in Apple. Just released today, Napster became available for our beloved iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

It offers a 10 million full-length songs for a subscription fee of $10 per month. You can also listen to songs while offline as long as you never forget to pay the monthly fee. Features include creating playlists, save songs, albums and playlists. Save the last 100 songs you played and check out new releases, recommendations and the Billboard charts as far as 1955.

Ironically speaking, the men behind Napster did say that they have no plans on releasing an app for Apple or any mobile devices because of the “high licensing fees for streaming to a mobile phone.” Rhapsody and Spotify overcame the obstacles and it seems that Napster realized these too.

The iOS Napster app is now ready for download at iTunes.

For users of Android operated handsets, handling your social media accounts is no longer a fuzz. The mobile OS welcomes TweetDeck -- your one stop app for Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, and Foursquare!

The popular social media management tool TweetDeck will be available as an Android app starting this Thursday. The company will also open the beta program in the morning. So far, the application is still in a beta form, meaning it still lacks finishing touches expected from a fully functional program. However, the app has an exciting potential.

Facebook, Twitter, Buzz and Foursquare accounts are integrated into a single application. Color-coded updates are presented in a single column. Included also in the app is a “Me” portion where user can review all their Twitter replies, plus comments and likes for their Facebook posts. The updates are pulled in a way that is easier on battery life, rather than having a real-time data stream that runs continuously. To wrap it up, the UI is clean and effective for handset display. Furthermore, the new Android app is a clear signal of where Apple-based applications are heading.

TweetDeck is looking forward to improving their map performance, handling of multiple Twitter accounts, video upload capacity and integration with the Android hardware. Don’t forget to share us your insights about the app once you have beta program.
