How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

3.0 out of 5 stars Crashes and falls to open November 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
This app used to work GREAT! Now it is one in a blue moon that I can actually open it and when I can open it, it crashes within about 5mins after loading.
And I see "reviews" on this app boasting about privacy and gossip. Celebrities have put themselves in the public eye and because of that, have given up most of their private lives. There are celebrities who have found a way to keep their lives as personal as possible, but they are famous because they are interesting. So, your soap box is useless if you are trying to get people to stop paying attention to interesting people.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is Amazon selling such rubbish? August 10, 2013
By Omnes
You've got to be kidding me! Why is Amazon selling such rubbish? That app is nothing more than another despicable device for losers who have nothing better to do than to peek into the lives of innocent people. Listen, those Stars, celebrities, musicians and other individuals maybe have a career and fans they meet, but they also have private lives. They deserve time off for themselves and their families, not to have some bad seeds (Paparazzis and other tabloid journalists scums) constantly tracking them down with their cameras and their mikes. Those idiots have the nerve of putting their victims under a pressure and situations that they wouldn't even want to live. Situations that not only hurt those stars, but also their relatives. And the worse is, those paparazzi scums are objectifying their victims, judging them for foolish and superficial ideals (physique, make up, fashion, etc.) while at the same time self-glorifying themselves as if they were better. Listen, I don't care if that app is for free and I don't care about Warner Bros and Telepictures' excuses for "Freedom of Speech" and "First Amendment" rubbish because those are dumb arguments. Look, those two amendments were meant to help people express constructive opinions and allow the creation of projects that will enrich humanity and teach the public how to be constructive citizens, not lower it down to the level of coachroaches. Because let me ask you a question: "How would you feel if a paparazzi with a camera was tracking down your every moves, words, and actions? Would you be uncomfortable, embarrassed, hurt, angry?"

If the answer is yes, then don't download this app! It may be for free, but its values are unacceptable!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great for Phones not for tablet June 22, 2011
This is one of the very few Android apps that isn't setup to work full screen on both the phones and tablets. This is just laziness on their part since unlike on iOS (IPad's)it's extremely easy to make apps work as they should on both device types within Android.
