Edit Audio, Trim and Merge Video on YouTube Capture [iOS]

The best free video editing tool available for iOS device is the YouTube Capture and in this post I will tell you all the reason to believe that. You can use this application to merge two or more videos, trim any recorded video or add any other audio in the background of the video and finally upload it directly on YouTube in your Channel. Let us see that how these features can be used.

All Editing Features on a Single Screen

The moment you launch the application, you will see ‘All videos’ which can be used to see all video available on your device, the video which have already been uploaded which highlighted whereas the rest will be accompanied by the option of edit and upload.

image

Now tap any of the video which has not been uploaded yet and you will be taken to another screen where you will see something like the one shown above in the screenshot.

image

Now at the top you have an option of Edit Music which can be used to change the audio in the background of the video. You can either choose any of the song available in the iTunes or you can opt to choose any of the tracks on behalf YouTube on that Application.

image

There is a mini player in the screen which can be used to play it and check the preview of the video, from time to time after you make the changes. Below this mini player, you have the option to trim the video with the help of white bars. You can scroll them horizontally to trim it to any length.

image

Lastly you have the ‘+’ which can be used to add any further video to that video. Once you tap it, it will ask whether you want to record a new video and add it to this or you want to add already available video on your iPhone.

Conclusion

If you are using all these tweaks over your iPhone 4 then it will be very slow and you will have to have some patience while dealing with the application. You can also opt to create a different channel if you want to upload a video in some other channel. I hope you will be able to take a good advantage of this feature, please let us know if you face any problem while using this application ‘YouTube Capture’.

Show Chatheads while Watching Movie or Playing Game [Android]

Priorities for the users of Facebook Messenger vary a lot, some of them want those chat heads to be there all the time whenever someone pings and some of them don’t want them to disturb while they are watching a movie or playing a game over full screen. Don’t worry because we have a solution to this problem. Usually when you install Facebook Messenger for the first time then by default it will never let chatheads come up in between any of the applications which require full screen to operate (wherein you cannot even see time or the whole taskbar at the top of the screen).

How To Toggle This Feature

If you are a great chatter and don’t want to miss out on any notification from Facebook Messages then go to the settings options and then you will see the Option Off Chatheads.

image

If you toggle the button to OFF then you will completely turn off this feature and then they will not appear anymore on your screen but if you wish to allow them in the games of movie player applications also, then tap on the checkbox to uncheck it and then they will literally appear in between any application on your Android device.

image

Another thing I would like to notify that usually when you use the Facebook to check the Messages then on tapping upon any of the chats it will be pop out as the chat head but on disabling this chat head feature you will be directed to messenger application when you are try to read the chat in the Facebook Messenger.

Conclusion

This tip is good for toggling the chat heads as per your priorities. Please let us know if you face any other problem while dealing with the Facebook Chatheads or any other feature. You may use uninstall this Messenger application and do everything on the Facebook main application if you are not a big chatter there.

[How-To] Set the Status in Google Hangout Application

One of the worst part of hangout application was not being able to set the status, which is really useful to convey a message that why you might not be able to reply to their messages promptly. And now luckily that feature is back in this application for both the platforms. When it comes to Android then this application has been updated with the SMS integration which was already implemented in Facebook Messenger (and I really hated this feature).

image

What Type Of Status Can You Set

On iPhone you don’t have this integration but you can set the status of your hangout but with certain constraint. First of all the users in the Google Talk list will not be able to see that status, secondly you will not be able to set the status in form of any desired text rather you will have large number of icon displaying different kind of moods, which will be used to set the status.

image

Thirdly you will also have the option to show that on which device are you using the hangout, whether it your phone, your laptop or your tablet. Another great point about this new update on this application is that if you are on a call and you are logged on hangout through the smartphone applications then you status will automatically reflect that.

Conclusion

These status can be altered in the Settings section wherein you will see a separate option for this ne feature. So these are some good features in the new hangout update, but I also wanted them to be reflected in the Google Chat section. Please let us know if you face any problem while following up with this tip.

How To Get unlimited Cloud Space to store data

I am going to tell you a smart tip which will help you to get this done very easily. Cloud storage is one of the most expensive storage media where you can store your data. There is no cloud service which offers free data storage. It started getting popular with Dropbox and now we have large number of options which includes Microsoft Skydrive, Google Drive and others. When a user creates an account over Google then he already gets a cloud storage space of 10GB for all the activities and files which are associated by using the Google services.

image

10GB is a good amount of free space if you simply want to save only the important stuff over your account and if your account is old then you will have this free space as 15GB which is again really good. This 15GB will have all the mails available on the Gmail account and also the files uploaded on Google Docs. Now the Google Drive application for Android and iPhone has been recently updated which can help you to monitor multiple Google Accounts on Google Drive pretty easily.

How To Do It?

Whenever you getting out of space then you can create another Google Account for a new 10GB free of Google Drive space and then start uploading your files there. But make sure you share all those files with the primary account which you usually access all the time. So, through you are uploading from different ends, but you will be able to read and edit all the files from a single frame (this is from your primary account).

image

The screenshot shows that I am sharing a file with my primary account and then using my phone to manage both the accounts at the same time. If you have the application installed on your tablet or smartphone, you will not even have to enter the passwords again and again but if you are using the desktops then you can open another account by using the incognito mode of your Google Chrome browser.

Problems You May Face.

You may face the problems like he handling of all those Google Accounts can be bit of a problem. So, try to set the same passwords for all those accounts.

Every time you upload any damn file!! There number can be huge but you cannot help it you will have to share every one of them with the primary account in order to take the advantage of the tip. So, upload all the files at once and then click the select all option to select all the files. Now click share and then share all those files atone. I think this solves your problem.

Conclusion

This will help you to get a good amount of cloud space for you. You can use the same method for Skydrive accounts also but I am not sure whether you can manage multiple account in their applications for android or iPhone. I hope this solves your problem to a certain extent. Please let us know if you face any other problem while using this tip.

Facebook Messenger Gets a new UI and Few New Features

Facebook Messenger has been updated with a new UI for iPhone and Android both and in this post we will talking about the updates in both the platforms. The UI is somewhat similar in both the platforms but there have been certain problem which users have reported in the Chat heads after installing this update. Most of these complaints and problems have been reported in the ratings and reviews section of Android on the Google Play Store and as far iOS version is concerned people are loving the new UI because it completely jells with the new UI of iOS7.

image

iOS Version of Facebook Messenger

This messenger application completely takes over the chat feature on Facebook, in other words now you will not be able to chat via your Facebook application which is usually used to check out the notifications and newsfeeds. Whenever you tap the messenger section in the Facebook main application then it will take you to the new Facebook Messenger application.

image

 

After chatting when you wish to go back to checking the newsfeeds or notifications then you will have to change the application which is somewhat annoying because initially it was much easier to switch between the application and the newsfeeds but they are 2 different applications.

image

The application now also has the feature to sync with the contacts on your iPhone in order to show you that who all are available on Facebook Messenger.

Android version of Facebook Messenger

The UI is almost similar to what you would have read above in the iPhone section. In the older version any Facebook chat used to open in form of chat heads by now you are using some other application then only the chats will ping as the notifications in form of chat heads and from there you can choose the open to go to the main application to chat or else if you still want to be busy with the current application and then you can reply in chat-head itself and then close it.

image

When you will see the contacts section of the application, then there you will find that all the friends who are online or active either on their cellphones or on desktop (and this will be clearly mentioned in front of their names). If you do not want to appear like that in anyone of your friend’s Facebook Messenger then you can toggle the button named Active to OFF which make you inactive in other Facebook Messenger application.

image

Conclusion

Facebook Messenger is slowly increasing the degree of its integration with your smartphone, it has already done that with its application named Facebook Home on the Android devices and now it gets into the contact section for the iPhone users. Please let us know if you face any problem while using this application as we have seen many negative reviews recently for the users who have upgraded their Facebook application (especially for Android users).

[App Of The Day #3] Kurrency-Convert your Currency on Real-Time Value

The reason I am writing about this application is because it is very simple to use this application and moreover this application does not have large number of features assembled into once which usually turns off large number of users (when these features are not aligned properly in the application). This application can help you to convert currency on the basis of the real time value. So, it will be a great application for the people working in forex department with iPhones as their smartphone.

image

The whole application can be used from its primary screen, as you can see that the values are supposed to be filled in the slots available for the amount of the money to be converted. You can also select the type of currency and every time you do the conversion it will check for the present value using your internet and then tell you the answer.

image

You can also save the currency conversions (which you use most frequently). I am using this application because I love to keep track that which country is selling the cheapest tablet or smartphone. Let’s say, iPhone is usually cheaper in US as compared to India and same is with the case of televisions when the rates in Dubai (UAE) and India are compared.

The application will also keep the track of the history of conversions which has been done on it. So, you can actually see the difference in the value of 100 INR in USD yesterday and today. A quick method to know that how much could have been saved/or already saved on 450USD when spending it in INR. Please let me know if you face any issue while using this application (though I am sure you will not).

[iOS7 New Feature] Your iPhone can Check alignment against any Plane [#Tips]

Today I will be telling you about a great utility which is their in iPhone and I am sure that you never knew about it because I myself discovered that while playing with it today. There is a smart utility in your Compass application on your iPhone. Compass is one of the rare utilities which must be using every day, people who are usually trekking may find this utility very useful otherwise we seldom use it. Today in this post I am going to help you to find the correct alignment of any plane with the help of your iPhone.

image

How Does it Work

Open the Compass application and then swipe your fingers to the left to see the alignment utility. Now place your iPhone on your table and if the circles do not overlap each other then it means that the table is not horizontally aligned. In other words I should say that the table is not properly horizontal and the flaw in its alignment is shown by the iPhone.

image

It can also check the vertical alignment of the iPhone, it may be very useful when you are trying to align the portrait or any other landscape on your wall. Just place your iPhone along with its plane and it will show you whether the alignment is correct or not. The moment the alignment it correct, the circles will overlap each other and then the screen will go green.

Conclusion

This application can be used to check the alignment in against any plane you can also turn it into a game if manually try to overlap the circles (which is tricky enough to irritate you). Please let us know if you face any problem while using this utility and let me also let you that this is the unique feature of the new iOS7 and so you will not find it on any other older version.

[Fix] What and Why are these Blue Dots on iPhone [iOS New Feature]

There is a new UI feature in the new iOS7 which puts a blue dot behind the name of the application which has been recently installed or which has been recently updated. Now in this post I will tell you that what does this signify and if your iPhone is automatically putting this in front of every application now and then (even if you don’t manually update it), then what is the reason behind it.

image

This blue dots just tell you that after the install of that application or after its latest update you have not opened it once. The moment you open it, this blue dot will go away and there is not provision to completely remove it. However, if this comes on every application even if you don’t update it, then there is a small unknown setting on iPhone which has been doing this.

Reasons Why They Exist

Open the Settings section and then search for the option of App Store. Here you will see that the automatic updates option is toggled as ON, which means that as soon as the update arrives it uses the WiFi network through which your iPhone is connected and then updates that application. Hence, you see that Blue dot without doing anything.

image

It may also happen if you will update the applications on your iTunes on desktop or laptop and then once your iPhone is synced with it, iTunes will replace all the old applications with the new updated versions and thus again you will see the same dot before the name of the updated applications (as they have not been opened since updated.)

Conclusion

This feature has really troubled many of the users. I just took a look at one of my friend’s iPhone and told him that you have not used this application till now. He was surprized that how did I tell him and so here goes the trick in this post. Please let us know if you face problem while following this tip or if you face any other problem on your iPhone.
