Ever since I have recommended LINE Camera in my last entry, I have begun noticing more and more friends playing with it. Some are of course, much better than mine.

It really takes some ingeniousness to make a really cute photo yet conveying your messages using LINE Camera, and compared with my friends, I am still a newbie.

Just a quick news and that is LINE has released a quick update and now it will add quick switch buttons for you to move from your LINE to LINE Camera or LINE Card.

This time I have other advanced apps for you to try out, but if you are iProduct users, sorry, you won't be able to enjoy this again. The reason being, Apple just likes to control your life, but Android unleashes freedom for creativity to let you enjoy the life you want.

What am I recommending? Check out the video first!

Great isn't it? This Phone To Computer app is great for those who want to have full control of your PC from a distance, like people (guess who?) who want to watch videos on YouTube from the toilet but the videos won't auto-play when it is on full-screen.

The next app only works if you have Samsung Smart TV, and they are the Samsung Remote and the Samsung Smart View.

Basically, you can turn any of your Samsung smart devices into remote control and even go online with the SmartTV to access your Facebook or watch YouTube on your TV while controlling it over your smartphones or tablets! I've tried it, and it feels really good!

You need to find the right version of app to match the Samsung Smart TV model, but you can find all of them below:
Download the app here:

Coming up is Rolle YouTube, its main function is that it allows you to download the YouTube video you want to keep.

This is a 3rd party app developed by the developers so before you install, you may want to go to "Settings" and then check the box for "unknown sources", but your phone will guide you through. Don't worry.

Last but not least, the Apex LauncherHolo Launcher, developed by XDA Member dennisxl and  XDA Senior Member mobint respectively.

Basically, the Apex Launcher and the Holo Launcher functions similarly, in the sense it is for those who want to enjoy the Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 look-and-feel, the difference is that Apex Launcher requires ICS 4.0 while Holo Launcher works on Android Froyo 2.2 and up. If you happen to NOT have rooted your phone or using an older version of Android OS but wants to get the ICS appearance, try out these two excellent launchers!
