Google Launches Motion Stills App On Android

Google last year launched an app on its iOS platform last year called Motion Stills which could capture short videos as GIFs with its superior stabilisation technology. While the Android users were miffed then since they were left out, Google has now finally produced an Android version of the app for its smartphone users. Rush to the Play Store now to download the latest version!

Whats is Motion Stills:

Motion Stills is actually just a GIF camera with some very fancy software tricks. During its default mode, users can capture a 3 second looping clip. The app has got a powerful stabilisation capability, so the final result looks almost like as if you had your phone on a tripod.

This is considered to be an alternative to Live Photos- which even records videos of same length. The Motion Still app even comes with a second kind of shot, known as ‘fast-forward mode’, a reminiscent of Microsoft’s Hyperlapse.Motion Stills

Just like Hyperlapse, this fast forward mode allows you to record a video which can speed up from twice to eight times the original speed. With this super-stabilisation capability, you can even capture videos up to one minute in length. What’s more, you can keep changing the fast forward speed even after the video is captured and saved.

According to Google, it has revamped the Motion Stills app for Android, which includes a new streaming pipeline. This means the app processes each video frame while it’s being recorded.

Once you are done shooting, you can swipe up to see the finished product. The videos you capture in your device can be exported either as an original video or as a GIF.

The Motion Stills app is still live in the Play Store for all tablets and smartphones which run Android 5.1 or higher versions. Time to test it for yourselves!

How to clear app cache and data on Android Marshmallow

Today, we have brought an article for you discussing how to clear app cache and data on Android Marshmallow. First, go to the Settings then Apps in order to search for a specific application to clear its cache. However, when you tap on a certain app the Android 6.0 Marshmallow will not provide a direct clear cache button.

Next, you will tap on the Storage options. In the storage sub-menu, you will find the Clear Cache button you were actually looking for and a Clear data button. If you want to clear cache for all the applications in a single chance, instead of the individual apps, then you must got to the Settings then Storage and USB and finally Cached data.

You can simply clear cached data for all the apps once you tap on the cached data tap. But you will have to confirm the fact that this is exactly what you need to do. Clearing cache will always help when an application misbehaves or is running at a slower speed. On the other hand, clearing data is a bit different process as it literally will delete all the user data and files associated with a certain app.

Vivo X6S Plus gets TENAA Certification

Vivo launched its latest handsets, X6 and X6 Plus, back in the month of November last year and now it seems that the manufacturer is already working on a successor to the later. The information came out via the Chinese certification agency TENAA, which has just certified Vivo X6S Plus phone in China. This certification agency is almost equivalent to the FCC certification authority of the country.

However, this S model is not so different from the original Vivo X6 and X6 Plus phone on the inside. Basically there are only two differences between these models, as revealed by the Chinese Certification authority. First, the new phone Vivo X6S Plus will be powered by an octa-core processor with 1.8 GHz clock speed, while on the other hand the X6Plus gets 100MHz lesser speed. Though, it is still not clear that what chipset will be employed on this new upcoming model of the manufacturer.

Also, the Vivo X6S Plus phone will carry a 16MP rear snapper which is up from the 13MP count available with its predecessor. When it comes to the internals of this handset, everything else remains the same. So, the upcoming X6S Plus model will get a 5.7 inch AMOLED Touchscreen display with 1080 pixels resolution. There is an internal storage of 64GB along with 4GB RAM for better processing speed. There is an 8MP front facing camera which can be used to click high quality selfie images. Vivo’s new phone runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.

For the outer shell, it seems that this phone has got an identical design to the non-S iteration. However, the dimensions are said to have changed slightly. This new phone will measure 158.16 x 79.94 x 7.7 mm dimensionally and weighs 190 grams. These measurements make this handset slightly shorter and narrower than the X6 Plus phone, but is thicker and heavier. On the basis of this, we assume that Vivo has a 3,000 mAh battery cell in last year’s model but there is nothing specific for the new upcoming model yet.
