App Of The Day: Frame Grabber

We recently posted about an application that was in the works called, “Rewind“. Soon after, we had a reader point out to us that an application called Frame Grabber did basically what Rewind was setting out to do. So we started the investigation and came to find out, that Frame Grabber is actually pretty awesome.

So when you open Frame Grabber, you’re on the title screen. You then click on a “Get Video” button which then shows you a list of all videos you have on your phone. I did not see an option to be taken to the camera from inside the application. So basically, instead of taking stills, you just take video, then grab which frame out of the video you think is best. 

For the test I used a music video I had on my phone by a band called, Terror. For anyone who didn’t know I’m an avid metal fan. There’s a lot of fast sequences in this video which I would think could possibly make the app show me a bunch of fuzzy, out of focus pictures. I was actually surprised to see how good the quality of the pictures were, and even more happy to see how easy it was to use. Huge plus sign, and that was it. Stills get stored to your SD and you’re set to share the pictures however you want.

Application is available on the Market for $2.99 | Market Link

Cheers Lonnie!

    This app doesnt not work on the Samsung Galaxy S2, it doesnt recognise the video file type. 

  • I wish to show some appreciation to you for rescuing me from such a problem. Because of looking through the world wide web and obtaining views that were not helpful, I thought my entire life was gone. Existing minus the answers to the difficulties you’ve sorted out by way of this article is a serious case, and the ones which may have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t come across your web site. That natural talent and kindness in controlling the whole thing was valuable. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come across such a stuff like this. I’m able to at this time relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for this reliable and sensible help. I won’t think twice to recommend your site to any person who requires tips on this topic.

    I’ve been waiting for TB support for Framegrabber, it seems to be pretty compatible with hTc devices, especially the evo 4G? I wonder if it will work for rooted TB?

    Are you guys not doing QR codes anymore?  It was so nice to be able to read from my computer at work and grab the QR from my phone if I wanted the app.  Now I have to ‘chrome to phone’ which isn’t as convenient.  Unless I’m missing an easier way?

      Dude, just click market link to go to the Market website.  As long as you are logged in to your account, you can install the app with the click of a button right to your phone!

        I knew I was probably missing something easy.  Thank you!

  • I didn’t realize people actually liked this stuff…  😉

    Jeezus Tim-o… what did you do? Kill Kellex and take over his blog?

    • Maaaaybe 😛

        It would not be the first time he has disappeared, wish I could find the post on that.  

      • Granted

        Alright! Maybe DL will look and act like it did when it started! What do we owe you? Got top use PayPal of course.

        • Granted

          ShapeWriter likes to supplement my “to”s with “top”s. Maybe if I slide a bunch of curse words at it, it will start behaving.

          • Or…. you will look like you have typing Tourette Syndrome!   ;P

          • How is it acting any differently? I don’t think it has changed too much except for the less trolling of me and more writing 😛

            And not as many fights over “first” hahaha

  • I’m pretty sure Terror is the furthest thing from metal out there. Nice try.

    • It’s brocore! Which is technically metal 😛

        They sound like a kick ass metal band to me. Does dylanandersen think that Poison or Warrant is metal?

    We need a way of knowing when an app is optimized for a tablet before we download it from the Market.

  • Nifty.  Might have to check that one out.

  • This will be great for capturing a good facial splash in my favorite pR0n

      What a terribly sad existence you have.

      • I feel worse for you, sitting there, judging me.

          Pretty quick response for someone who types with his one free hand. ;D
