Last year was the first time that I left my iPhone for more than a month and switch to Android. I used the Galaxy S7 for around 5 Months until the iPhone 7 came out. I've always liked Android but until a couple years ago it just wasn't as good as iOS and when I say good I mean the apps available on the OS were not as good as those on iOS.

Switching from iPhone 7 to Galaxy S8


 

I believe 2017 is the first year that it doesn't really matter what phone you choose because all of them are going to be pretty much the same. The iPhone 8 will look and function very similarly to the Galaxy S8 and both devices have lots of features which end up accomplishing the same thing. I sold my iPhone 7 a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Galaxy S8 because it is the best smartphone ever made. The combination of materials, features, software, and design of the phone make it the most comfortable smartphone I have held and it sports the most beautiful screen I have seen. The iPhone 8 will most like match all this but we are still months away from an announcement this means it's currently Samsung's turn to shine.


 

I ended up purchasing the Silver since I have had a black phone for the past couple of years and Samsung has given all the S8 colors black fronts which is perfect. If you have yet to see one in person, I highly reccomend going to a store and checking it out. This is what phones will look like for the next couple of years until the foldable displays become more affordable. I’ll be making some videos on the S8 this coming weekend so stay tuned for those!

How To: Download All of Your Vines to Make a Compilation

Vine compilations seem to be catching on but there are many people who don’t know how to download Vines to make Vine compilations themselves. This easy tutorial will work on anyones Vine profile and any number of Vines, it allows you to download all Vines on a page or just one.

How To:

  1. Get Firefox
  2. Get the FlashGot Mass Downloader Extension Here (free)
  3. Go to your profile on vine.co
  4. Scroll through and make sure every video loads (or the specific one you want) so the extension registers it
  5. Initiate the extension (should be on the top right hand side of the browser) which automatically selects all of the videos
  6. Take the downloaded videos to your favorite editing program and compile them in no time!

Why does Vine take up so much space? Here’s why and how to fix it!

I’ve been using Vine for the past couple of days since it was released and noticed that as I view peoples Vines and cancel ones that I decide not to upload, the amount of space the app took up increased significantly. The app size itself is only 8.2 MB but since its release it has gone up to 837 MB. Why? Because I have posted one, canceled 4, and browsed around 400 different Vines all of which are stored on your device in the background.

What to do? 

First Option- You can download a program like iExplorer and go into Vines “tmp” folder and delete or save as you please. What happens when you delete them from iExplorer? Nothing other than freeing up space. My posts and likes are still on my profile but the ones I didn’t post are deleted which was my initial intention.

Second Option- You can also go into Settings>General>Usage and delete the app along with its contents, this will free up everything and you can just re-download the app. The only difference is that you can’t save any of your none posted Vines but it gets the job done. I do want to mention again that every Vine that you load is stored whether you “like” it or not.

Vine progress some
