Tags: , , , , , , , ,

The NBCUniversal peacock will be showing off more and more of its content tail feathers via Snapchat.

The media company and the social networking application Monday announced an expansion of their partnership, under which short-form versions of several popular NBCUniversal television shows will be created exclusively for Snapchat.

The initiative will start Monday, Aug. 22, with The Voice on Snapchat, a five-part short-form series that will feature The Voice judges Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton reviewing user-submitted video clips and choosing one that will give its creator the opportunity to appear on the reality competition show’s next season, which starts Sept. 19.

Next up will be The Rundown from E! News, launching on Snapchat Sept. 8 and featuring content that will be exclusive to the app.

Other shows will be part of the deal, including NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Saturday Night Live, as well as to-be-determined fare from NBCUniversal’s entertainment, news, sports and Hispanic properties.

Snapchat vice president of content Nick Bell said in a release announcing the expanded partnership:

Together with NBCUniversal, we believe there is a huge creative and commercial opportunity around mobile-first programming and are excited to bring these future formats to our community.

NBCUniversal executive vp of business development and digital distribution Ron Lamprecht added:

NBCUniversal is committed to tapping into its talent, resources and reach to be the leader in delivering mobile-first premium content. From entertainment to news and sports, NBCUniversal has an unparalleled lineup, and Snapchat is the perfect partner to help us reach millions of fans where they are every day.

Facebook Adds Slideshow Feature to iOS App

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Facebook Monday introduced a feature for users of its flagship iOS application, Slideshow, not to be confused with the ad unit of the same name that debuted last October.

The social network said in an email to SocialTimes that the Slideshow feature originated in its stand-alone Moments app, and testing in the main Facebook app has been ongoing since December.

As its name suggests, Slideshow enables users to combine multiple photos and videos into a slideshow, complete with music and a customized title, and the feature will be rolled out to iOS app users worldwide this week, with new themes and music to be added “over time.”

Facebook also shared the following instructions for users looking to create their own Slideshows:

If you’ve taken more than five photos or videos in the past 24 hours, Facebook will give you a preview of a pre-made slideshow at the top of your News Feed in the “What’s on your mind” box when you open the Facebook app. You can customize and edit your Slideshow by removing new images and videos, selecting one of 10 themes with unique visuals and music, adding a title and tagging your friends.

If you see someone else’s Slideshow in your News Feed, Facebook may give you the option to “Try It,” which will let you select five or more images and videos of your own to create a Slideshow.

The themes you can choose from are: Inspired, Nostalgic, Playful, Night Out, Birthday, Epic, Thankful, Tropical, Bollywood and Amped.

Mobile Game Roundup: EvilBane: Rise of Ravens, Tales of Link and More

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

If you’re looking for a new mobile game to play this weekend, you have lots of new options to try, including two games featuring Disney characters.

The first game, Disney Crossy Road, was released by Disney and Hipster Whale. The game allows users to play in nine Disney-themed worlds as they attempt to survive as long as possible while crossing lanes of traffic, rivers and more.

The second game, Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ (read as Unchained ‘Key’), was released by Square Enix. The game allows players to create their own Keyblade Master and complete quests by defeating Heartless in turn-based battles.

Are you looking for something different to play? Here’s a look at some of the additional games released this week.

EvilBane: Rise of Ravens (Free on Android) – From Netmarble Games, this hack-n-slash RPG follows three main characters and challenges players to defeat ‘a dark and powerful shadow’ before it destroys the world. The game includes 1,200 types of gear to collect and upgrade, and allows users to team up with other players in raids. Users can form guilds with other players, and compete against others in a player-vs-player arena. EvilBane: Rise of Ravens is coming soon to iOS.

No Thing ($1.99 on iOS, Android) – This surreal action game from Evil Indie Games places players in the role of an office clerk who is asked to deliver an important message to The Queen of Ice. Gamers will walk down a pathway floating in the sky, and must stay on the platform and continue walking while voices, faces and story information appear. During the game’s launch week, No Thing can be purchased for $1.99. Once the promotion ends, the price will increase to $3.99.

Survive the Night (Free on Android) – This arcade survival game from Aspyrian Labs challenges players to survive as long as possible while avoiding zombies. Gamers will need to collect food in the world to avoid starvation, and can also collect power-ups while playing. Gamers can unlock new color schemes for the game, as well as pets, over time.

Soccer Clicker (Free on iOS) – This soccer-themed clicker from Naquatic allows players to tap on the screen to kick a soccer ball into a goal. As players tap, they earn points which go toward completing training days, as well as money. Gamers can spend money on upgrades for their player so they earn more points with each tap. In addition, gamers can purchase and upgrade team members, which earn points automatically even if players aren’t tapping. After completing a few training days, gamers compete in a match against another team, which challenges them to tap as quickly as possible to earn more points than their opponent in a limited time. Soccer Clicker is coming soon to Android and Amazon.

Tales of Link

Tales of Link (Free on iOS, Android) – This RPG from Bandai Namco Entertainment features characters from the ‘Tales of’ series, and allows players to create a team of heroes on a quest to save the world. The game offers nine characters, each with their own skills. During battle, players attack enemies by dragging their finger to create links between heroes with the same colored mark.

In addition to these new releases, D3 Go! has released Marvel Puzzle Quest on the Amazon Appstore. The game was previously released on iOS and Android.
