Sony unveils Amazing Second Screen app for Spider-Man Blu-ray disc

If you are a die-hard Spiderman fan and have vested interest in the making of The Spider-Man, then this one is surely for you! With the launch of Sony’s Amazing Second Screen app, you get an exclusive chance to dig deep into the extraordinary universe of The Amazing Spider-Man. The app, which can be accessed exclusively on Sony Tablet S, Sony Xperia Tablet S, and Apple iPad, will sync with Spiderman’s upcoming Blu-ray Disc. It will give you a complete behind-the-scene entrance into sparkling world of The Spider-Man. Through this app you can check out the making of The Amazing Spider-Man motion picture.

The app was released a month before the scheduled launch of its companion – the Blu-ray disc, which is scheduled to be released on November 9. The release has come naturally as no blockbuster movies in 2012 can have home release without its second screen companion app. This will allow fans to view some extra content while they enjoy their movie on the TV sets. Each week, leading up to the release, new content will be unlocked through this app, which can be easily downloaded on Sony Tablets and Apple iPads.

The app works on dual interactive modes – the production mode and the timeline mode – both of them delving you deep into the Spiderman’s world with a home-bound video. Through the production mode, you can browse through the production notes and can get complete in-depth behind-the-scene coverage of film, ranging from production to development to its completion. In the timeline mode, the app syncs with the Blu-ray Disc allowing you to experience various featurettes, trivia, storyboards, interviews, and much more. In addition to this, you can also refurbish your Twitter and Facebook pages and share facts and trivia about the making of Spiderman with your friends and family.

The app gives you a complete footage of:
• Dangerous stunts performed by Andrew Garfield and the stunt team
• Photo galleries of costumes, make-up tests, and props used in the movie
• 360 degree interactive models of the Oscorp Tower and The Lizard
• Interviews with stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee, director Marc Webb, other cast and crew, and much more.

The Amazing Second Screen app is absolutely free of charge and can be easily downloaded from the App Store on iPads and from Google Play on the Sony Tablet.

Facebook® unveils its own app hub

The popular social networking platform Facebook has announced the release of its own app store named App Center from where users can browse high-quality games and other useful apps for their Android or Apple’s iOS-based mobile device. Facebook will only host the apps, to download them the user has to go to either Google Play or App Store.

 

Launch of App Center

The new App Center, which Facebook Inc. said will launch in the coming few weeks, comes as the company is preparing an initial public offering that would value the company somewhere between US $77 billion and US $96 billion.

 

Eligible apps include websites and mobile apps that use Facebook’s authentication system to enable the users enjoy a personalized experience as well as those hosted on commercial Facebook pages. Facebook said that an app must clearly delineate between content and advertising and set clear expectations about what user activity it shares.

 

According to the blog post of Facebook, Zynga’s Draw Something, Pinterest, Spotify and Viddy, a video-sharing service which Mark Zuckerberg recently joined, are good examples of high-quality apps.

 

Google™ Play and YouTube® to rent 600 MGM® movie titles

Google has joined hands with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) to offer 600 of the studio’s movie titles to rent through online video sharing service YouTube and its Android app store Google Play.

The deal will apply to the U.S. and Canada regions, and will include blockbusters such as ‘The Terminator’, ‘Rocky’ and ‘Robocop’, with more titles to be added gradually in the coming weeks. The deal comes after Google’s recently inked deal with Paramount to offer 500 of its films to rent in the U.S. and Canada, including ‘The Godfather’ trilogy, ‘Transformers’ and last year’s Martin Scorsese-directed kids’ movie ‘Hugo’.

The premium rental service of YouTube will also receive access to the above-mentioned movie titles. Google typically charges anything between US $1.99 and US $3.99 for film rentals. The YouTube service is accessible through computers and mobile devices. You can also access the online video-sharing service on Google TV, an Internet-connected TV platform, which is available on certain Sony TV models and Blu-ray players as well as the Logitech Revue set-top box.

Google™ Play added to the top of Google™ browser bar

If you are a Google search engine user, then you must have noticed today the word “Play” with new written in red next to it. What is this “Play”? Yes, it’s the same app store of Android Market, which was renamed as Google Play by Google in the beginning of this month.

Android device users, who used to frequently visit the app store, can now experience a new service by the name of Google Play that offers music, movies, and books under one umbrella. This was an effort by Google to spruce up the shopping experience and it succeeded to some extent in doing so. Moving ahead in the same direction, Google has now given a prominent position to Google Play on the top of its Google browser bar.

With all these recent developments, it seems that Google is leaving no stone unturned in promoting the Google Play app store. It would not come as a surprise to you if in the coming days you come across the word “Play” once again while using any of the Google products such as Gmail or the Google News.
