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.

The competition among the various free messaging apps like Viber, Hangouts, WeChat, etc, is surely heating up, as more and more features are added for every update.

Featuring various music videos, dramas and TV shows, it functions more like YouTube's video channels, rather than a video streaming service that will challenge the likes of Netflix, Huli, Amazon and the likes.

VLC exits beta, outs stable version

We have much love for the VLC media player – it’s an app for people working on desktops and laptops who want a media player that works with just about any media format you throw at it. It just works, and we were pretty excited when VLC wanted to bring its goods over to Android some two years ago.

By now, you’re familiar with Android Auto. The blossoming in-car platform is Google’s attempt at diversifying their platform everywhere you are, and driving is no different. As we increasingly use our phones for things like navigation, they become more like an in-car device.

At the recent LA Auto Show, Chris Davies from our sister site SlashGear got to spend some time with Android Auto. Check it out!

Whew! We just got tired thinking of all that. But now, mobile video editing apps have been appearing in the market. One new player is called Movie Edit Touch, which is pretty self-explanatory already.
