Pop-Out and Play YouTube Videos in Foreground on Android with FlyTube

Despite available resources, Google has been always grumpy about allowing YouTube videos to play in the background on smartphones. After all, who watches a lengthy clip without concurrently working or chatting with someone? There are a series of third-party solutions present on the store, however, the good ones are limited to rooted devices which obviously most users don’t possess. Fortunately, there’s a new application in town and it’s called “Flytube”.Flytube is a free app for Android phones which as the name suggests, allows you to view YouTube clips in movable and independent windows. You can lay it over any other application without any interruptions whatsoever. The pop-up window, additionally, can be moved and resized according to your preferences, and it also holds tiny little playback controls including a seek bar, play/pause and more for quick access. Unfortunately, you still can’t play them while keeping the phone locked due to Google’s restrictive guidelines. Of course, tha…

Now Avail Reliance Jio Sim with Free 3-Month Preview Offer on ANY 4G Smartphone

There has been a deluge of posts about Reliance Jio and the Preview Offer on the Indian blogosphere over the past few weeks, and why not? The launch of Jio (which is just around the corner) is expected to shake up the Indian telecom industry in a big way, and we are getting a taste of it already.

If you are in possession of a 4G enabled handset, be it from Apple, Xiaomi, Lenovo, OnePlus, Micromax or any manufacturer, you are entitled to purchase a Reliance Jio SIM with partner offer for free. The partner offer entitles you with 90-days of unlimited calls, unlimited SMS, unlimited 4G data and the complete suite of Reliance Jio apps. This is a brutal o…

Facebook’s new LifeStage App is Strictly for Teenagers

Facebook’s social platform is nothing like what it used to be twelve years ago – a comprehensive hub for young college students to interact and connect with their colleagues. Invaded by business approaches and unfenced availability, almost everyone (1.7 Billion to be precise) uses Facebook whether they’re adults, kids, what have you. However, with a new standalone iOS application – Lifestage, the company is returning to its roots for enrolling the lost interest it used to celebrate before it became so open.Lifestage is a straightforward take on Facebook’s biggest shortcoming right now – the lack of enthusiasm from the young generation. It resembles a video diary and allows users to describe their personal details strictly in a small video snippet. As soon as your friends’ update theirs, your feed will be updated. However, the crucial attraction it brings is the fact that only the people who’re 21 or younger can enroll. In case you’re 22 or older, you’ll be only able to view your profi…
