Apps on our moto g mobile phone? There are 105 Apps on my moto g android mobile phone. Take a look and see which ones we have in common. This video links to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uZ3neJhbRY which looks at the five home screens

Our mobile is quite personal to us. How do you use yours?

+Mike Downes Just tested the free version and very likely to buy the full version as it's so good. Thanks for creating the video, I found out about the app ;-)

Agree, the old one was much faster and more intuitive. Good to see it can still be used :)

The best part of https://www.google.com/intl/en/local/guides/how-we-act/ is Being Yourself .. Reviews can be anything, maybe parks, museums, newly opened coffee shops or even a local sports club. I found two great places today, no map page, so best get to work on the Blaze New Trails then..

What's on our moto g mobile phone? The mobile in our pocket is usually seen by our eyes only. So what apps do you carry on your five android home screens? To start us off, I've shared my moto g - if you can share yours too.

There are 69 apps on these screens, how many do you have? And what do we have in common? Moto g first gen shows lollipop 5.0.2.
Next in the series, the 105 apps sitting in the background.

screen recording by AZ Screen recorder, voice using Zoom H1, edited in Sony Vegas.

A Bambuser live stream demo from Android motog There's much been said in th last few weeks on live streaming video from mobile. I've been using Bambuser.com since 2011, on revisting this service, I've concluded it's excellent. Not only does it stream live, but follows on with a perfect file too. 

You can also record offline and upload in one click. GPS broadcast tracking is permitted allow with a many video/audio formats. Bambuser supports 11 mobile operating systems, making it a service for all (move than I can say about a few recent services with no On Demand facility, like Meerkat & Periscope).

Screen recording was made possible by the brilliant AZ Screen Recorder: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hecorat.screenrecorder.free .. 

Apologies for the dodgy voice over, as I was screen recording on lollipop and using bambuser app at same time. I think it came out rather well (at 1280x720 17fps) .. I have not been paid by bambuser to make this video

for other recent post on Bambuser, see:

+Mike Downes​ talk about live streaming. Remember a couple years ago, maybe more, when +Christy Wilcox​ was broadcasting live from the Syrian/Turkish border? This month Nation Geographic has a major story on the refugee situation. I believe the primary image is from the same crossing as she used for the broadcast on G+. That was awhile ago and I don't believe it was picked up by a network or station.

Now we have Mercat and some other nonsense. What happened to the US teams from the Arab Spring in downtown Cairo, Egypt? They were running through the streets as the government fell. The literally running commentary and visual gave us the sense of being there.

Meercat. Nonsense except as a toy.

From what I've seen, and as the slide shows, there is real diversity here and it's a friendly place. The library is for students and staff, but others can get access if they fill out some forms and say why they need the books - one reason is for accessing titles that are not found elsewhere ie in a public library.

Well stocked for student resources, carries many extras like computer accessories, even bike spares like inner tubes. My fave was the simple reporter's pad. (from memory opening hours are Mon-Fri 9-5.30pm).

Excellent addition to the ARU Chelmsford Campus. Also includes the Startup Lab - I've added the odd course from called Be Your Own Boss. Whenever I go past, even late into the weekends, there's always a light on with someone hard at work. Wish them all a long and distinguished success :)
