Is graboid legal ?

In this 21 century where companies suing each other, Digital companies suing digital pirates, Hackers hacking computers and spreading malware around. People are worried whether what they are downloading is legal or does it contains malware which might harm their computer. As we know Graboid video allows us to download movies legally. Ah, wait… Did I just say legally? Yea, I did.

So is Graboid legal?
Before I answer this question, let me explain how Graboid gets its data. Well, it uses Usenet Service named Giganews. Usenet is a worldwide distributed Internet discussion system. This is legal. The Graboid has subscribed for reseller plan. Hence they are able to provide movie legally for small a amount of fee.

When Graboid was asked about the legality. They responded saying: “Graboid service does not violate any laws in any country. The people posting these files are doing it to promote the work of artists they admire. We cannot speak on their behalf on legal issues.” This to me sounds like they know they are in a gray area. They are not technically doing anything illegal.

As I was reading Graboid blog, I saw some responses given by the gravid to the questions raised in the comments on the blog post.

“The License Agreement point about using your bandwidth to deliver services to other users is an artifact of using legal language from other services as a starting point for our own. We should have caught this before now, and we appreciate having it pointed out. That clause will be modified immediately. There is no element of Graboid usage that allows or encourages you to share video with others.

Graboid Video (the company) is completely legal in Canada. If we were located in the US, we would be completely legal as well, although we might have to slightly modify some of our operating principles to comply with elements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that don’t apply in Canada. We didn’t move to Canada so we could start this service. We actually like it here. Universal health care, no guns, and it’s easy to get a job driving a snowplow!

Users of Graboid Video are not breaking any laws that we know of, and we know of a lot. Sharing copyrighted material, without permission, is illegal. We have not been able to find case law or media reports of anyone, anywhere in the world, ever being charged with illegally VIEWING copyrighted material. All such reports involve sharing, not viewing. We have made this point before in this blog, asking anyone who knows of such a case to let us know. We haven’t received any responses.

We won’t be turning over names to the RIAA. Particularly because they’re the music industry guys, not the movie industry guys. As for the MPAA or anyone else, if we’re served with a court order to release the names of our users, we will comply. However, we do not keep records of what individual users are doing with our service, just the amount of bandwidth used.
Nothing we do, nothing we say in this blog, and nothing your own lawyer tells you, can prevent you from being sued or charged with a crime. That’s just the way the legal system works. If you think that OUR comments on YOUR legal situation somehow protect you, they don’t. We have paid for great legal advice from multiple legal firms, and even they say that their advice is simply advice and they’re not responsible if we get sued. The same applies to us – we’re just telling you what we think, because you asked. We’re not your lawyer or your mother. Make your own decision.”

Is Graboid safe?
Well, you tell me. I have been using graboid for 5 years. I dint find any malware or virus. It Just installs VLC and graboid software. Is graboid safe? It’s up to you now to decide.
Let us know, what you think about Graboid video Software in the comments section.

Graboid review: Things you need to know

graboid review

It’s been a long time I posted about Graboid review. Graboid video is a desktop application, which runs on windows as well as Mac. This particular piece of application acts like dedicated browser to download videos. Graboid now allows you to download multiple videos simultaneously, though it affects your download speed. They have collections of more than 500,000 High-quality videos. You can download your movies or episodes in no time.

Best part of the Graboid video software is its download speed. I have managed to download a movie within 1 hour at 250/Kbps. You can either steam video or download. For Streaming, you need a minimum of 1 Mbps speed. For streaming full DVDs, you need a minimum 4Mbps.

About the security concern, Graboid is virus-free; it contains no spyware or adware. Well, I have been using Graboid since 2009, I dint find any virus. How Graboid works is, it fetches the content from Giganews, which is a world’s leading Usenet provider. Graboid has purchased a reseller account from Giganews. This comes with unlimited bandwidth. Graboid provides free 2 GB trial account which lets you to download movies of 2Gb in size, later on you can upgrade to Unlimited which is 19.99$ /month. Years back they had a cheaper plan like silver and gold. Remember, don’t forget to cancel your service if you’re unsatisfied with the service or else you will be charged subsequent month.

If you encounter any issues while using the application or if you have questions regarding you can contact customer support. They are available 7 days a week. Number is 1-877-460-0722 or you can mail them at support[@]

We cannot request for videos in Graboid. It only provides content which is available at Giganews. You might think why pay 19.99$, why can’t we use torrent? The problem is when you download the content from torrent the production companies can find out who is downloading their copyright content. So when you use Graboid application you are safe. If you still prefer torrent, you can use VPN connection and be safe.

If you unsatisfied with their service you can cancel your service by logging into your account. Go to account tab in the Graboid application and under payment history click cancel. This will then prompt confirm popup.

They only accept American Express, Discover and MasterCard. Unfortunately, they no longer accept PayPal as a payment method.

Please let us know what you think about Graboid service in the comment section.

Google Analytics for Phonegap with error tracking

Google Analytics for Phonegap

As you all know Google analytic’s mobile is used to measure and optimize user acquisition and engagement with your mobile apps. Integrating SDk with your app play an important role. Google analytic’s provides an SDk for IOS and Android, which are leading mobile OS. For windows phone app we can use the JavaScript version of Google analytic’s.

In order to use Google Analytics for Phonegap download the plugin available on github  . Currently it supports only android and IOS.

This plugin uses GoogleAnalyticsV2.jar for android and Google Analytics.a for IOS library provided by Google mobile analytic SDk . This plugin allows you to track page, set variable and track events. GAPlugin can capture only native level events like device model, country, your ISP, exception etc.. It cannot capture JavaScript error and html page activity. To track JavaScript error, we can use to track events or track page custom events.

Note: This plugin cannot track client side error. In order to use this plugin just call the plugin in page load event and its done.

 var gaPlugin;

function onDeviceReady() {

    gaPlugin = window.plugins.gaPlugin;

    gaPlugin.init(successHandler, errorHandler, "UA-43345678-1", 10);


Now replace UA-12345678-1 with your tracking ID. Which can be found at Google analytic website. Number “10” is update duration in terms of seconds. Don’t forget to write success and error handler method.

To track custom events you can use

gaPlugin.trackEvent( successHandler, errorHandler, "login Button", "Click", "button was clicked", 1);

gaPlugin.setVariable( (successHandler, errorHandler, 1, "Myvariable");

gaPlugin.trackPage( (successHandler, errorHandler, "login.html");

To stop tracking call gaPlugin.exit(successHandler, errorHandler); method. To test your code you can log-in to and check your log. To track JavaScript Errors, we can use


Which is run-time script error event handler, works on all mobile device browsers.

window.onerror = function(message, file, line) {
var error = file + "(" + line + "): " + message;
gaPlugin.trackEvent(nativePluginResultHandler, nativePluginErrorHandler, "Global", "Exception", error, 1)

If you want to use Google’s Universal Analytic’s in your app then you can refer Watson’s code at gitHub. This library logs any unhandled errors on your web pages and will report to your Google analytic account. Remember this will log error in Google analytic events section.

There is an alternative to track both native and hybrid events, to do so we have to send the error to gaPlugin and in native file use to ExceptionReporter to send the error to Google analytic’s.
