Weiyun Tencent Disk Storage Sync Application Update (English Language)

How much shareable cloud storage can you get for free nowadays?

We’ve talked in the past about services like Dropbox, probably the most popular option, Box, GoogleDrive, OneDrive, etc. But we’ve concluded that some of the Chinese Storage Providers, like Weiyun Tencent offer an unbeatable amount of free storage. Since July 2012, the Chinese web giant released its cloud service with a whopping 10TB of free storage, and it now reports 300 million registered users.


However, there are issues with the Weiyun Application as this is available only in Chinese. Now translation isn’t impossible but who speaks Chinese? Well over a Billion !!! 😀

Many have tried to share updated lang files for the relevant application, but it seems that all gave up after some time. We decided to give it a go and simply using Google Translate go through the relevant files on the i18N folder and make the available in English.

(Alternative Share)

Have in mind that the latest applications for download are available at http://www.weiyun.com/download.html
(Android, iPhone, Ipad, Windows and Mac)
Of course the web interface (translatable with Google Translate) is available at http://www.weiyun.com/index.html?WYTAG=weiyun.portal.download

For the English Version of the Application for Android see here forum.xda-developers.com

Credits to http://tencent-weiyun.eu5.org/ for maintaining a version until March 2014, which while it works, it’s missing a lot of the new additions to the windows application.

Now if Weiyun Tencent is not right for you, but still need online storage space, perhaps you’d like 100GB for Free by the Sweedish Degoo.

Android Applications not available on Google Play Store

Google Play Store has over 1,3 applications available for Android users, but still you just won’t find certain apps there. Despite Android users being able to choose from the largest selection of apps  with 1.3 million apps, while Apple’s App Store remains the second-largest app store with 1.2 million available apps, google has some tight regulations for Android apps and it simply removes applications if they breach its terms. For instance,

  • you won’t find applications that can download videos or music from YouTube.
  • You also won’t find ad blockers for Android.

Those are just two types of apps forbidden on Google Play, but still there are quite a few that are actually interesting. Some well known and some not known in general. While discussing this with some friends, we got to the question “What are Android Apps that are not available in Google play?” and possibly why?

XBMC evolves to Kodi

As announced, earlier in 01 August 2014, One of the most popular open-source media center applications XBMC, starting with version 14, will become “Kodi”. XBMC 13.2 Gotham will be the last version using the XBMC name. All future versions will be named Kodi Entertainment Center.

You can read more about the rename on the official kodi.tv blog here and about the new art and branding here.

The XBMC-er, Kodi Team explained that part of the name change was because the original “Xbox Media Center (XBMC)” is long outdated compared to what the software can do today. They noted that it barely runs on the Xbox at all anymore, and they wanted to clearly move away from a “media center” to an “entertainment center” since it’s no longer just media—you can play games, stream from the web, connect to your mobile devices, and more. Of course, any name containing Xbox in it might had some legal issues, not to mention no real legal control over the full “XBMC” name.

Therfore, as of the upcoming release of XBMC 14 the project will formally transition over to the new name of ‘Kodi’.  Migration won’t be easy, and XMBC/Kodi developers have a lot of handwork ahead; code has to be adjusted to use the new title throughout, and this has to be tested and double-checked on every platform it supports.

But they now seem to be past that, and earlier in November,  they announced the release of Beta cycle for Kodi 14.0 Helix , currently downloadable in Beta 5booming to the first release candidate.

Before the first release candidate, there’s another beta version for testing. Of course, this version includes new home screen with the new logo and several corrections. As always, especially if you are considering early adopting the beta, please make a backup of your settings and addons for XBMC / Kodi before upgrading.

For the end user, the changes are really in name and branding. Of course release 14.0 is also including several bug fixes and improvements, as expected out of a new release. The software will stay the same, the code licensing is still GPL 2.0. For the time it’s mostly just a new cool name and a new look for a product we all know and love, but hopefully this will also lead to more and more improvements.

Free CDN Services to Speed Up WordPress

If you are running a website that has a lot of images and similar content, a Content Delivery Network might be useful for you as it can help in reducing page load times.

A content delivery network (CDN) can speed up your site and help to protect it against traffic spikes. The Internet was designed according to the end-to-end principle.This principle keeps the core network relatively simple and moves the intelligence as much as possible to the network end-points: the hosts and clients. As a result the core network is specialized, simplified, and optimized to only forward data packets.

A CDN provider uses its multiple servers across the globe to serve your static content to visitors from various regions (simple logic: geographically closer means quicker pageviews).

Some of the major advantages of using a CDN are as follows:

  • Websites load quicker.
  • Saves a lot of bandwidth — ideal for heavy traffic websites or those with limited shared hosting accounts.
  • Less pressure on your hosting server.
