Galaxy S

Last week, We announced that Samsung will launch a VPU or a Value Update package that will for the Galaxy S I9000 Users, that will Offer them the same experience of the ICS but in Gingerbread (browser, multi-tasking... etc) instead of the CORE ICS 4.0.1 OS Update which samsung said it "could not run smoothly on the galaxy s older hardware, and will not deliver a good experience to the user".


However, a Samsung spokesperson today has said that the company will NOT offer the (VPU) update either due to the hardware specifications of the older Galaxy devices, in that they are limited to and fully optimized for the Gingerbread experience only. The news will frustrate Galaxy S owners that had gotten their hopes up following recent reports, They won't get the ICS nor the VPU, with many still on a two-year contract, they were hoping to see new features on the device.

We are Truly Very Sorry to all Galaxy S Owners and Fans for this Bad News, but we will keep supporting you with Gingerbread Updates and Bug fixes, also we will offer some easy-steps tutorials for How-to flash your Galaxy S to ICS 4.0.3.

Thank you,

FaceUnlock Test

Samsung is finally delivering the long waited Value Pack Update for the original Galaxy S. The VPU came with many Ice cream sandwhich features, including Face unlock, but this time samsung modify something to make it more secured.

Blink to Unlock!


It turns out, the face unlock is actually better than the one present in the stock Android ICS (Galaxy Nexus), which is easy to bypass with a photo. Samsung team responsible for the value pack heard those concerns and made this unlock option more secure. The solution is very clever in its simplicity the user has to blink before the phone would unlock. And that is not something a photo can do.


However, This technique can be bypassed with a video which is much harder to get.

Galaxy S 100 Million


Samsung Korea has just Officially annouced that the Samsung's Galaxy S series of Android smartphones has reached a New record, The Galaxy S series total worldwide shipments exceeding 100 million units since the first Galaxy S device shipped two and a half years ago.




The Galaxy S III (I9300) has been the biggest and fastest selling smartphone so far, with 40 Million shipments coming in the first seven months after launch and currently shipping close to 190,000 units every day. The previous flagship Galaxy S II (I9100), which has been around for almost two years now, has managed to ship 40 Million units in 20 months, and don't forget the Original Galaxy S (I9000) which scored more than 20 Million shipments worldwide.







UberMusic is a music player inspired by the Metro UI and Zune Player for Windows Phone 7, and it is the most gorgeous music player you will find in the Android Market. It mimics the Zune player even in the animations. This skinnable music player, made by the same developer of LauncherPro, is gaining fast popularity in the Android Market in less than a week out of beta its already sold almost 10,000 copies of. Lets see why this app is growing so fast.




The first thing that got my attention was the ability to install skins. One of the key features to an Android phone is the possibility to give your own look to your phone, and as I am a musician and totally addicted to music, another great thing to have in my phone is a good music player.

Default skin and Metro skin

Default skin and Metro skin

You can give the app the look you want to, and although its only recently been released, there are already some great skins available. The app itself has an already styled skin thats really cool not as cool as the Metro Skin, but still keeping the feeling of the Windows Phone 7 music player.

User Interface

The UI of UberMusic is like a clone of the WP7 music player. It even mimics the animations and the super smooth scrolling it has. I believe the Metro UI of Windows Phone 7 is one of the most beautiful UIs ever designed, and UberMusic takes this same attitude to heart.

If you swipe as the player starts, it will softly change to the next tab, out of (by default):

  • Artists
  • Albums
  • Songs
  • Playlists
  • Genres
  • Folders
Selecting a letter on the Artists tabs shows a interface to let you sort by letter, just as in Zune on Windows Phone 7 again, it mimics even the animation of this interface.


Sort by letter

Sort by letter


When you are on an artist’s tab, it will download a picture of the artist in question and used it as the background. Another great feature is that it downloads the biography of the artist and shows it in another tab inside the artist tab.


Artist Bio's tab

Artist Bio's tab

Another great UI feature is the "Now Playing" status in the notification bar, which displays a minimalistic status including the cover art of the album. Likewise, when playing a song, it shows the cover art for the album you are listening to as the background, and if you swipe you’ll be taken to the next song on the playlist.


Now playing screen and the notification bar

Scrobbling and Shuffling

As with most music players, UberMusic has the option of scrobbling your listened songs to, either through the app or through ScrobbleDroid/SLS.

Also, UberMusic uses a true shuffling system that never repeats the songs you already listened till the playlist has played all songs. To activate the shuffle, you just tap the cover art of the playing song and then select the shuffle symbol; you can also select the repeat mode through the same interface.


Widgets and Wallpaper

This wonderful music player comes with 6 widgets in different sizes, and these, too, are skinnable. The skin may be just for the widget or it may come together with the player skin you have downloaded itself. Even without any skin, it is already beautiful, with a semi-transparent background and the controller buttons, alongside cover art for the song.


4x4 Widget

But what really impressed me is the UberMusic live wallpaper. I thought it was just another slide show or something, but its actually a really beautiful display of cover art, all in the same screen, with a gorgeous animation that flips the covers, just like Windows Phone 7 does with its Tiles.

A ROM delivered from the devs over at XDA-developers that runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on the Galaxy S I9000, which performs flawlessly but for a couple of minor bugs.
