My kid loves to watch YouTube videos lately. However, the official YouTube application is not so user friendly for small kids. There are lot of navigation and plenty of videos to choose. And they might jump into videos that not suitable for them with adult Google Account login. Yes, you can search everything. Thanks to Google. There is a new YouTube app just for them – YouTube Kids. Yes, this official free app is simple and packed full of age-appropriate videos, channels and playlists. Not to worry about what will your kids watch anymore…

Any PSP games lover here? Good news for you all. You can enjoy PSP games on Android devices now. Well, it is not limited to Android only but available to other platforms as well like PC Windows, Mac OSX, iOS (jailbroken only), Blackberry, Maemo, Symbian, Pandora and Linux. However, I will focus on Android version here for the moment. This PSP emulator is called PPSSPP. You can download PPSSPP Gold without advertisement or ad-supported version at Google Play Store. Or download PPSSPP APK from its website directly. The choice is totally up to you…

Wow… Polaris Office 5 by InfraWare is coming faster than I thought. Yes, you can download and install Polaris Office 5 for free on your Samsung Galaxy S4 now. No need to use Polaris viewer 5 anymore and unleash the ability to edit office documents like Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF. Hmm… The current version of Polaris Office 5 does not seem to support cloud service such as Google Docs, Dropbox and Box.net yet. Hopefully, future version will support it soon.

Yes, you can enable DTS codec support on MX Player. It is working on my Nexus 7 (2013) perfectly. However, DTS audio is not working on my Galaxy S4 with the latest version of MX Player even with custom codec loaded. Not sure why… Anyway, Kodi 14.0 Helix media player comes to rescue. Kodi is XBMC actually. Yup, it has a new name. And loaded with new features like capable of playing back h.265 (also known as HEVC) and VP9 video codecs. However, decoding of h.265 is entirely software based for the moment. So it won’t work well on Android and iOS devices with low processing power. But should work fine on powerful PC system.

Yeah… Kodi is working great with my newly added DLNA media server. I am streaming most of media from local NAS now. However, I still prefer MX Player as it is much user friendly on mobile devices. But Kodi stays on Galaxy S4 due to DTS audio codec support.

Remote desktop function is available on Windows platform long time ago. I always use it when I was a system engineer to troubleshoot server issue remotely. A great tool for IT support. Personally, I prefer Windows Remote Desktop function as it is a lot faster than realtime screen sharing mode like VNC provides. Both have pros and cons. Realtime screen sharing mode is preferred when other remote access to your PC for support / troubleshooting because you can see what he is going at the same time. Guest what? Google has a same tool too – Chrome Remote Desktop.
