One last thing: when you use the HTML5 editing module, every clip has to live in its own tab. No way around it. I tried the YouTube module and it was much better. On Android it's easy to browse video content, which opens in Google's YouTube App. After this experience I know that if I want to use TheAppBuilder for a digital video portfolio, I have no choice but to move my portfolio to YouTube. That's annoying but not the end of the world.

So, for video, TheAppBuilder has some issues. What about the rest of the modules? Facebook and Twitter feeds are simple to integrate. Just type in the user name you'd like to display, and you're ready to go. Read on for more module experiences.
