It hasn’t been that long since we told you about the Samsung Galaxy S III. One of the cooler features of the phone, at least in my mind, is the multi-tasking, picture-in-picture, pop-off video player. This SGS3 feature will let you watch a video while you’re reading a web page, or answering email, for example. It’s really a cool idea.
Unfortunately, we’ve got to wait for the SGS3 to be released to get it. Or do we?
☆ Stick it! (Pop-up Player) is a media player app, available for download from the Play Store that will cost you around two bucks. I mention in the video that I bought my copy for US$1.79, but today it’s US$1.96, so your price may vary.
The app itself does exactly what one might expect it to do. It’s a little rough around the edges, has some odd “graphical anomalies”, and isn’t as smooth as one might hope when moving the window or re-sizing the video. Actual video playback, however, is almost always spot-on.
