Clipster video player for Facebook pages

Clipster video player for Facebook pages

Do you want to create a video player for your Facebook Page? Try an awesome new app called Clipster.

In a few easy steps, you can create an awesome looking video player customised to your liking to attract your fans to keep coming back over and over again.

You can add custom header image, add text and change the color and the fonts.

Clipster is an ever growing Facebook app which they are looking at adding more and more features come March 30th, 2012, I look forward to the updates.

While you are creating your video player, each change is updated straight away so you can zoom over to your page and check out how its looking. Simple to add Vimeo and YouTube clips, just copy and paste the URL and the rest is done by Clipster.

Videos can be moved around so you can display your main video to be the main feature at the top of the player and even add catagories to your video’s.

Try Clipster today, plans start from “Free” and range to $9.99 per month, not a bad pricing structure. Me, i started at $2.99 per month to check it out… might look at upping my plan!

All this was done within a few minutes… check out my Clipster player on my Facebook page.

Top 5 iPhone apps i use

Top 5 iPhone apps i use

So, first up, I must come clean and advise I have an addiction to iPhone apps! It doesn’t matter if they are paid ones or freebies, I just got to have the latest and greatest! My poor credit card gets a whacking from iTunes, got to keep the economy going hey! So as I flick through the many folders and the many pages of apps that I have on my iPhone, here are the top 5 I just got to have to get me through the day! 

In top place is the FACEBOOK app (http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/facebook/id284882215?mt=8)
Event though there are still a few bugs in this app, it gets a huge amount of attention from me. Not only does it keep me up to date with what all my friends are doing, I always use this to post photos straight into my online profile so everyone knows where & what i’m doing… i’m a bit into the exhibitionist thing here!

Twittelator ProIn Second place is my favourite Twitter App, Twittelator Pro (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=288963578&mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D6). Now if anyone can tell me of anything better, im all ears but I just love this app. It has so many awesome features for a twitter app. I also have the iPad version too which also rocks! Some of the features it has post to Facebook wall, create audio and video tweets, drafts and offline tweeting, create lists and view other users lists, nearby tweets, handles many accounts, oh and the list goes on and on, so get this app folks! Twittelator also comes in a free version, but why not upgrade and pay for the full version, it’s much better!

In Third place is the TWiT app. (http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/twit/id299663499?mt=8)
I use this app daily, while i’m driving to work, when i’m at work and via my Boxee Box (and Boxee app for Mac, Windows and Apple TV). I love the how Leo and the team have developed this app so we are able to watch the live feed. I have my iPhone in the car cradle and stream the podcast while i’m driving or while I am being driven around. Even though it is irresponsible to have this streaming, i dont watch it, i just need to know it’s there! It’s a great app for anyone techie – keeps you informed and updated with all things technology and beyond! You can also sign into their IRC and be part of the live chat, even interact with Leo and the team while they are live to air. You can listen to the live audio podcast or view any of the past video/audio podcasts. So do yourself a favour and spend the AU$1.19 and grab this app.

Number 4 would be the original FourSquare app (http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/foursquare/id306934924?mt=8), what better price… FREE! I had a good crack at Gowalla but  I was forever adding places to Gowalla. If I was in another place like the US, i’m sure I wouldn’t have to add as many places but for where I live, I was forever adding them. So FourSquare, you got my attention! So my non-iPhone, non-techie friends would ask “what is it?”. I always stumble on this one and say “umm it’s like you check-in, like a hotel, but you let all you friends know where you check in, it could be a cafe, a shopping centre, a park or even checking into your apartment”, but why would you want to tell your friends you are home? When you check-in you can become the “Mayor” of that place and people can take your mayorship off you if you don’t check into that place often enough. You also get badges, you can share photos, receive comments, you can also get freebies and discounts via this app and earn point. When I go travelling, I like to have a competition with my friends, to see how many points & check-ins each of us can get while we travel around. But that just me!

Lucky Last is my GPS. I am currently using Sygic (http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/mobile-maps-australia-new/id319361043?mt=8) Wow, currently its only $29.99 (this weekend – 26/02/11), When I paid for it, it was discounted to $60 and I thought that was good. So when I moved to Melbourne a few years ago, I had my Navman, which was a lifesaver, then my iPhone came along and the Navman has sat in my glovebox since then. With Sygic, you get map updates for free which is why Navman is still sitting in my glovebox, if only they learnt that people don’t like to keep forking out money after you have bought something… one day hey! I must be honest, I have found this app to be very reliable. Some of the features it has are:

  • All the maps are on your phone,
  • text-to-speech so it tells you the name of the street,
  • doesn’t require an internet connection (unless you want to, if you use internet with it, it gives you more features),
  • speed camera and red light camera alerts,
  • uses WhereIs aswell… Gone are the days of the dreaded street directory…
  • These are just some features, check them out for a full listing…

So, thats it! Top 5 daily used apps! If you have any apps worth me trying out… let me know… So what do you use…let me know!
