Last Day

So today is officially our last day of class. We went over our presentations, turned in our equipment, and went over what to do for Saturday. I can’t wait till then.

I really thank Youth AppLab for giving me skills that I will be able to use to have a better future. This program must continue!

YouthappLab Students Created Business Making Apps

Hello readers! Sorry for the long dry spell of blog posts. I have been busy. We have been working hard on completing our apps and presentations and on the side my brother, Muhammad, and I started a business making apps. We thank YouthAppLab so much for giving us the skills necessary to do this. So without further ado, here are links to our facebook, twitter, and company websites.


An Android Device That Rivals the Ipod Touch

As a young kid, we want smartphones but aren’t able to get them for whatever reason, most commonly the cost and the yearly contracts. Even older people want cool techonlogy without having to pay monthly bills. That’s where devices like the Ipod Touch comes in. It has all the features of it’s smartphone “brother” except for being able to connect to the internet unless you use wi-fi. Unfortunately Android doesn’t have a device that gives you all of the features of it’s smartphones with wi-fi only internet access and is as small as a smartphone. That was before the Samsung Galaxy Players were announced. They come in two different screen sizes, one 4 inches, the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0, and another 5 inches, the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0. They both have similar specs, but the 5 inch version has a flash. These devices are part of the Galaxy S family of smartphones provided by Samsung. These smartphones are known for their great displays, speed, weight and design. Personally, I would love to have this device when it’s available. It has Android 2.2(planned upgrade to 2.3) and is powered by a 1ghz Snapdragon processor that allows it to run the currently and newly available hardware intensive apps and games. And, to top it off, it has a front facing camera for video chat. I can’t wait for this device to ship…
