Movie and .avi Player for Android Phones

The default video player in Android Phones doesn't supports .avi and other Movie file.

To play these on your phone, you need to download new video player.









Here is a good application that supports movie file.


MX Player

DOWNLOAD MX Player

I installed this to my Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread Version, and based on my experienced with this app, it successfully plays .avi files particulary movie files, and therefore will expect the same way to higher version of Android.

You may find that this app won't work as you open a file. If that happened, tap and hold the title of the movie you want to play until this popup window appears. Then tap Play using...














then tap S/W decoder

Adobe Photoshop for Samsung Galaxy and other Android Phones

Adobe Photoshop is now available for android phones.
The name of the app is Adobe Photoshop Express byAdobe Systems

DOWNLOAD Adobe Photoshop Express

But don't expect that this app has same functions as the desktop version.


However, I can say that this app has better editing and retouching features than the Instagram can offer. Here are the editing features of Adobe Photoshop Express!




Another edge of this app is that you can directly post your pictures in
photoshop.com facebooktwitter
As a default, only the pictures from your phone memory will show on the list of photos to be edited/uploaded.
