Specular Theory creates Terminator Genisys 360-degree video

If you've lost count of how many Terminator movies there have been in the advent of the release of Terminator Genisys, that doesn't really matter. What has gotten our interest is a short film created by the folks over at Specular Theory that is not just any promotional video, but rather a 360-degree virtual reality experience that you can enjoy on your desktop or on mobile devices, but especially with Google Cardboard to get the full-on effect. There is even a cameo by a certain well-known ex-Terminator and ex-California governor.

Fruit Ninja animated series coming to a YouTube near you

You've enjoyed slicing the fruits away on various platforms with Fruit Ninja. But have you ever wondered at why they're slicing fruits, how they got to be so good at slicing, and what led them to this path? No? Well, YouTube and Halfbrick think you will be interested in original Fruit Ninja-themed video content and so they're bringing you an animated series on their YouTube channel that should appeal to kids. Given the cartoony "violence" against fruits though, it might be a good idea for parents to watch as well.

Twitter now allows taking of landscape videos through app

Most of the various kinds of mobile video apps that we have today, like Vine, Instagram, Periscope, etc have one thing in common: they all want you to take videos the portrait way. But sometimes, having a square screen isn't all that great, especially when the video you're taking involves either a lot of people or beautiful scenery. Twitter now allows you to take landscape videos on its mobile apps, giving you options on what you'd like your video to look like, orientation-wise.

HTC updates Zoe, adds Chromecast support and Clip Sequence UI

We honestly believe that HTC is developing a game plan and has already set goals for monetization to increase sales after last month's revenue went down by 40%. While it is too early, the Taiwanese company is doing everything to bring in more money by releasing both exclusive and non-exclusive HTC apps. HTC hopes to generate revenues with sponsored apps. It's one of the major goals so don't be surprised if the company starts launching a slew of new apps at a fast rate or updating the ones already on the Google Play Store.

Satuday Night Live now has Android app for your laughing pleasure

One of America's favorite past times every Saturday is to tune in to Saturday Night Live, whether on network TV or on live streaming, and see what shenanigans the ever-rotating cast and their celebrity host of the week are up to. But what has been lacking was an actual, official app so that you can relive all your favorite sketches, musical numbers, and even videos that weren't aired for some reason or another. Now, SNL geeks, you have your wish as the official SNL Android app is now available for smartphones and tablets.

Facebook’s new app Riff lets you collaborate on videos with friends

First it was video sharing apps. Then it became ephemeral video sharing. Now, it looks like collaborative video creation and sharing will be the name of the social media video game. Facebook has released the newest app from their Creative Labs. It's called Riff and its main purpose in life is to get you and your friends to collaborate on interesting and fun videos and then share them with the world.

YouTube announces support for 360-degree videos

Ever heard of those eccentric new video cameras that take 360-degree videos? Well, it looks like we will be seeing a lot of those soon on YouTube as the Google-owned video hosting site has announced that it will be supporting these specific uploads. If you haven’t seen one, we’ll show you one below, but suffice it to say it is a totally different experience when you are able to see all the way around.

Do you have dreams of becoming the next YouTube sensation? (and don't laugh at that dream because some of the YT stars earn millions just for people watching their videos). Well, you don't need to have a great set-up at home or in a studio to be able to launch a YT show. The HTC RE camera can now stream live videos to the video channel, so you can bring your show to the Internet even while you're in a mobile setting.

Google Helpouts video assistance service to shut down by April 20

Wait, what is Google Helpouts? If that is your reaction to the service that Google will effectually shut down by April this year, then you've probably stumbled on to the reason why it's going away in the first place. The video tutorial service did not catch on as quickly as they expected, despite having several "engaged and loyal contributors" and despite sporting the Google brand.

Sling TV now available for Android devices

There will probably come a time in the near future (or some say it's happening already) when we will be watching more television on our mobile devices, rather than an actual television set. With the popularity of video streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and others, you get to watch the shows you actually want whenever you want it. The latest to be part of this trend is Sling TV, and it's now available for a host of devices, including Android smartphones and tablets.
