SNL app finally comes to Android

SNL app finally comes to Android
Back in February, iOS users were the first to receive a new app that offered fans of Saturday Night Live a chance to view individual skits from 40 years of broadcasts. Today, the app has become available for Android users as well. Where else are you going to find such gems as Joe Piscopo using his dead-on imitation of Ted Koppel to announce the assassination of Buckwheat? There is also a special set of emojis included with the app that are based on characters from SNL skits.

And it doesn't matter which era of the show you are a fan of, this app has them all. You can watch John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and other members of the original cast. Other SNL performers like Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, Jon Lovitz, Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Phil Hartman and David Spade went from being unknowns to starring in movies or on television.

There was a howl that went up from Android users when the app was first launched for iOS users only. But today, Android users finally get their own SNL app which is available for free from the Google Play Store. If you need to see Eddie Murphy portraying Gumby, the Coneheads or Franz and Hans, click on the sourcelink to download and install the app. The memory center of your brain will thank you.

Finally. I find myself using this word often on this OS. All these features I have that I don't on iOS, yet none of which I remotely come close to using. But the apps. Finally.

Some haters actually think that if iOS does not feature some gimmick that iOS users are now lucked out - but anything that iOS doesn't have stock can be added with apps, but in a more refined way like the way iOS handles multitasking for every app instead of just letting every. single. piece. of. crap. running in background using up battery, ram, and processor. Some may prefer constantly managing background tasks - I enjoy awesome apps/games - all of them - on day one - optimized for my specific phone/screen/specs. But hey at least they can watch YouTube and use a calculator at the same time - woohoo!

I like being able to upload photos to Dropbox while it is in the background. But on my iPad, I have open the app and leave it on screen and wait whilst they upload. On my Samsung, everything happens in the background without any stress.

Happens instantly on iCloud. I can snap a photo with iPhone and view it on PC right away.
