HTC Zoe on Xperia_1HTC recently decided to release one if its key apps, Zoe, to the wider market. Zoe is HTC’s way to create and share highlight videos – similar to what Sony recently introduced with its Movie Creator app. The Zoe app is available on the Google Play Store in Beta form, but is only available to a limited selection of devices. Sony Xperia owners haven’t officially been invited to the party so far, but the leaked APK below means you can see what you think.

You can choose the photos and videos you want to share, give it a filter and choose the right soundtrack. You can also invite friends to remix your video and vice versa, this allows others to add their own content to create “the ultimate highlight reel” according to HTC. If you want to give it a try, the download link can be found below. We found no problems trying this on a Xperia Z1 and Z2. [read more…]
