Google’s foray in the phone operating system industry is booming. The growth of Android, along with the abundance of “DROID” advertising, has helped launch itself into the forefront of consumers who seek an alternative to the white walled garden, and of AT&T. While Android’s speed of development has been great, there is definitely one area that can be improved upon still: media. I’m not just talking Android’s lackluster default media player (at least we have alternatives), but the way you obtain, organize, and manage your music and videos. Now, I don’t believe Android NEEDS an iTunes equivalent, as I’m quite contempt with manually transferring my media, but it would make some things easier.
The fact that Google is looking to launch Google Music with their next update, code-named Gingerbread – aka, Android 3.0 , gives us a good indication that they wants to be your go-to gadget for tunes. On top of that, Google TV is making great strides with it’s partnership with Logitech, showing off a Harmony Remote app for Android.
While many details are not yet known to us yet, the fact that Google is looking to launch Google Music, and Google TV means even tighter integration with Android. So stop playing the Angry Birds beta for just a second and take a stroll with me to the possible future….
- Management and organization of your media with the database powers of Google’s search
- One stop access to downloading music, TV, & movies
- Google TV integration for transferring TV shows & Movies to your phone or tablet
- Wireless/Wifi Syncing of new media content

Who hasn’t watched a movie or TV show and thought, “Oh my gosh! It’s that… guy… from that… show…. uh….”? And when this happens, where do you head? IMDB, of course! Well now it’s easier for Android users to beat out their friends in recognizing “that… guy…” before their friends do, with the new IMDB app for Android.
Officially slated “IMDB Movies & TV”, the app is currently available in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portugese and Japanese. The app features most of the same utilities as the website itself, such as access to over 1.5 million film and TV titles, as well as information on over 3.2 million celebrities, quotes, trailers and more. This app is sure to help you regain your title as “Movie Trivia Guru”, before someone else can snatch that oh-so-important title away from you.
