wp_ss_20140826_0002 wp_ss_20140826_0004

Developers BC3 has updated their WP8.1 app  Upload to Youtube, to version 2.2. The app is designed specifically for  Windows Phone 8.1, and lets you pick videos not just from your camera roll, but using a file picker from anywhere on your phone (such as the Downloads folder for example).

New in this version is a significant new feature – the ability to transcode a video to higher or more importantly lower resolution before uploading.  The feature is particularly important when bandwidth is low, when it may be a lot easier to upload a 100 MB 720P vs 400 MB 1080P file.

The app is free and ad-supported (though an IAP can remove the ads) and can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store here.

The headline feature is a new Picture in Picture feature in the app which means you can start a video then navigate to other pages in the app, and the video will continue to play in a small window in the bottom corner of the page (see screen shot above).

The app will also now play the audio of a video in the background when you navigate away from the app, and features some UI and performance improvements.

The app’s main feature is of course having the ability broadcast video to a Google Chromecast, and also via DLNA.

Windows Phone YouTube apps updated to address YouTube Vevo changes

wp_ss_20140725_0002

In the absence of an official YouTube app for Windows Phone, 3rd party YouTube apps are in a constant race to keep up with Google’s backend changes.

Thankfully Windows Phone developers are a diligent bunch, and work hard to keep their apps updated.

YouTube has made recent changes to how Vevo music videos are streamed,  and in response Tubecast, SuperTube, MetroTube and AllTube Player Pro have all updated their apps.

If your music video therefore is not playing, we suggest looking out for an update to your preferred player.

Upload to YouTube–a new uploader designed for WP8.1

Developers BC3 has released their new app – Upload to Youtube, which does exactly what is says on the tin.

The app is designed and will only work on Windows Phone 8.1, and lets you pick videos not just from your camera roll, but using a file picker from anywhere on your phone (such as the Downloads folder for example).

The app will also accept input via the Share menu, allowing you for example to craft a video in Movie Maker and, in theory, use the Share menu to upload it to YouTube. In practice this is not widely supported yet, but should work from most new file explorers without issue, including Microsoft’s own Files app.

The app has two big weaknesses – one simple to rectify and another which will probably take some work.

Surfy Browser Version 3.8 brings NFC Link Sharing, remembers passwords, and has find on page support


Surfy

New to hit the Windows Phone store this week is a new version of Surfy, the popular web browser for Windows Phone. Version 3.8 includes several new interesting updates, not least of which is the ability to share links by touching phones together. NFC (Near Field Communication) is used to transmit a link to another phone with a simple tap. This saves having to send your link via email or a status update if you just want to share a page with someone nearby. It’s a great time saver and pretty neat. What happens if the person doesn’t have Surfy? No problem, the phone immediately prompts to download Surfy from the Windows Phone Store. It’s an elegant solution to a common problem.

Along with NFC Link Sharing, version 3.8 brings some long awaited features including a find on page feature and password and login credential caching.

Voice command support has also been opened up to Spanish, Portuguese and Italian users. The voice commands in Surfy are the best on any browser in the Store and allow you to launch popular websites, or any of your favorites, by holding the Windows hardware button on your phone.

Surfy’s momentum of regular updates and innovative features has it on course to be the best browser for Windows Phone.

Surfy 3.8 include:Surfy

  • Share links via NFC
  • Save Passwords and Logins
  • Find on Page
